Any opinions on which one is better? Definitely installing one of them now that 2.1 only has 3 screens. Thanks!
After using both, I can honestly recommend Helix over Home ++.
Home++ was much slower (loading up list of apps, when you go back to the home screen).
I have yet to experience any of this with Helix.
Try them both. Each has different features. Home++ has the power strip, the ability to hide the info bar at the top and you can scroll continuously from screen to screen. Helix lets you put 4 icons of your choice at the bottom. I had Home++ with 4 screens and it was fine, although there were no updates for a while. With 4 screens you really had to select your wallpaper as it will show where the ends are.
I had Home++ for some time and recently went to Helix. I like Helix, it looks cleaner and I've had fewer FCs (not that Home++ had a lot).
aaf709...I downloaded Helix last night just to check it out and then uninstalled while waiting to do 2.1 upgrade...I noticed the 4 icons...how can you switch those, and can you turn them off if you want?
Idk..I used both...i like the Powerstrip on Home ++ but the Shortcuts on Helix work well too. I think Helix is much quicker.
I really want to use Helix Launcher but I find the power strip pretty much indispensable, so I go with Home++. The speed between the two, I don't notice that much, but Home++ does force close once in a long while
I have a couple of App Organizer folders along with my Phone and Handcent links on my shortcuts.
