    Which today app do you use?

    I am new to bb and apps. I had a palm and loved the today home screen feature. I have been researching today apps online and want to find one that I can customize for me. Do you have any suggestions?

    Storm Genesis is the one I have settled on (after trying several). By JC Designs at Gadgetbean.

    It looks good, but the storm in that video is running so slowly. I've noticed that all themes cause major slowdown. I see no choice but to stick calendar/tasks in home row and deal with the default theme.

    i know exactly what u mean. the storm is my first bb, coming from a palm treo wx. unfortunately, i have been for same since day 1. lot of good "today like" programs out there, but not like windows mobile they all run as progs not totally integrated into homescreen. ie. closing said program will still take u back to bb homescreen. hope this helps

    I use the Storm Edition Hidden Dock Weather Bug Edition theme. It looks awesome. I thought the themes I tried were killing my application memory, but after deleting a few apps that I really didn't need that were known memory hogs, I've found that this theme, and others, are not a problem. Every time I go back to the original Precision Zen theme that came with the phone, I find that I've gained absolutely nothing.

    I use two themes by elycruz0102 Win 07 and DS both with weather support and hidden today areas. They are by far the fastest themes I have tried as well as the least amount of leak associated with them.
