    GDE vs Home++

    So what do you guys think is better? Debating on if it is worth the purchase or not.

    I have tried Both and I was happier with GDE, I liked the home lay out but it was laggy for me. GDE just seems to blaze.

    Home++ has up to 7 screens
    Semi-Customizable bottom dock (work in progress according to developer )
    Hide/un-hide notification bar.
    'Endless scroll'
    flip clock widget that actually flips!
    first developer to produce an animated widget!
    Runs smooth.

    it's free so give it a shot... if you don't like it you can always uninstall

    GDE did run exceptionally well... but for me the fact that wallpapers are cut in half for cube effect was a deal breaker. Spoke to the developer and there is no way to change the 'split' effect because in order for the cube animation to work it had to be coded that way. Just an FYI. (a left and right image... unlike the stock where it 'shift's as you scroll)

    I agree with everything on here. I could never get a wallpaper right on the Cube and the cube is the biggest reason I got it. The bottom dock is great for Home++ and will only get better since its still in beta

    I've had GDE, Pandahome, Open Home, and Home++ all on my phone.

    Personal opinion I like Home++ better than all of them. Again that's an opinion. GDE seemed to lag a lot for me, Pandahome had WAY too many FC's, I wasn't a fan of Open Home's layout, and I've had nothing but Good results with Home++.
