    Been using it since Sunday. It's already working well, but it is going to be special in it's initial release.

    To answer your question, it looks like a card to me (not 100%)

    yea it would be cool if it was native and not just another card. But if its not there all the time it kind of loses its appeal. I definitely give the developer serious credit though. The idea is really ambitious and he's executing it really well. And thats as much as he can do.

    It's a card, but I just leave it open. Once you open another app it falls to the background, but in reality you can't see the normal home screen when in an app either. Like I said, I just leave it open and it looks great sitting on the Touchstone at work.

    I think this misses the point of WebOS and Synergy. It looks like some people are really missing their WinMo phones.

    There's a lot of wasted real estate on the front page, which was palm's idea. I would rather fill it up with decent looking shortcuts and such. This does look interesting, but still is not an active desktop.. it's a card. I might change my opinion if I was able to download it without donating.

    Actually, I love the idea of a card like this. I don't want my Pre cluttered up with a bunch of crap in the "home screen" or "lock screen" or whatever. I like it that it's very simple and elegant by default. However, being able to open a single card with widget-like bits of info and mini-apps is a great idea.

    To me, it merges the best of both worlds. Can't wait to see a released version.

    It's too much. All I want to see is upcoming appointments. And I want them on the phone lock screen.

    It is a nice start...I saw the scenes idea from the new hero...I can see having a ahs for different parts of the day. Work which is email and cal heavy...and social which is facebook and twitter heavy. Then each theme is there on the quicklaunch or wave bar.

    Priapism is a serious problem. You should seek treatment.

    Oh, yes, I am excited about the Active Home screen.
