The active standby screen of Symbian lacks personality. You can use themes and set a background picture, but what if you want more shortcut icons for quick access to the programs you use often? And what about personalised menus instead of the traditional 12 icon grid?
GDesk lets you design your own Symbian homescreen, and you can download designs from others. Of course you can also share your own designs.
If your phone has enough memory (GDesk uses quite a lot of it), it's definitely worth the overhead. Version 0.30k fixes a few bugs, and if you have memory to spare you can use it to activate the new Menu Acceleration feature.
