"What is dxTop
dxTop is an alternative to the Android home interface. When you install dxTop it will install as an alternative to the default Home interface allowing you to choose which on to use. Pressing the Home button on the phone prompts you to choose which Home interface to use and you can set dxTop as the default so you won't have to choose anymore.

"Why is it better?
Lightweight with sophisticated persistent mode to help prevent long waits returning back home. Unlike other home replacement application, dxTop does not make other applications suffer when using persistent mode. When another app requires more memory, dxTop will release memory to free memory, but keep enough to allow a fast startup for when you return.
