    It's "just" a multipage homescreen that uses 1 page for each "tab" thing.

    Did such a thing once...

    [​IMG]

    That screen was also planned for Landscape, but never got finished (laziness, ya know?) :tounge:

    Works by placing the date/time plugin on the bottom of the screen, just like the Iconbar plugin. Unselectable = possible on each page

    The ones where the clock is on the left side are the REAL Samsung homescreens = special plugin = special dll to get it to work

    There was this niggling idea in the back of my head, and I couldn't for the life of me remember where I had seen something like your screen.

    Now I remember.

    This seems like it'll be a fun new idea to toy with.

    I came across this, hoping that I would find a "cooked" ROM of the Samsung i600 Cardwheel Interface. If anyone knows where this might be found, please... don't hold out!

    BTW... here is a link to the website I found this on, in case you were wondering - *cough* Rudeboy - *cough*. :)

    Yeah... It is a bit flashy.

    I really wish that someone would come up with a complete shell replacement for WM6 that is feature rich and easier to use. I just don't like WM6 the way it is and am tired of trying to find a really nice Facade theme that suites my tastes... This "cardwheel" style would be really nice, given that you could configure each card to be something different.... Eh, I guess we'll see.

    Ditto what Prosper said.

    I've got one working, that has Facade Dialer, Scheduler, Programs, and Tasks working. It still has a few kinks in it, and I haven't worked out proper placement yet.

    In addition, I'd like to lock the Icon bar at the top of the page, and it's not working well. I haven't had good luck with with Orange, as it screws up the "Selectable" plugins.

    I'm still futzing about with the layout and the design. It's now a matter of tweaking the size of the Schedule and Tasks layout. The Programs and Dialer Bar lay out easy as well as the Clock and other Standard Plugins, so that's easy. I'm not going to attempt Fizz Weather, as the width/height is set in the program and is a guessing game for the most part.

    It'll take a few more days to spanner a good one out.

    OK, fixed the Orange issue, and that works better for my layout. I'm a bit bummed that I can't layout the Icon Bar at the top of the screen, as you need to have a "selectable" Icon creating the "top" of each screen.
