We're big fans of Faruq Rasid's QuickDesk utility around here. Well, hot off the presses we have news of a "Pro" version hitting the market. Along with drag-up-to-kill for applications running in the QuickPanel drawer, QuickDesk 0.4 Pro also brings support for landscape orientation. Rather than rearranging your portrait layout, the landscape implementation offers a whole new screen where you can fit 6 x 3 icons in the widescreen aspect.

I'm the only person invited to that particular party :(

This is of course a great boon to owners of landscape phones such as the Droid, Epic 4G, or T-mobile G2, but it is also useful for portrait phone owners as it offers you a secondary space to place widgets that you might only want to check every once in a while, like news headlines or schedules.
