    Launchers

    Hello all,

    Did a search but wasn't able to find a topic for it.

    I'm looking for atleast 5 screens and know there are a couple launcher apps out there like helix and home.

    I was wandering, what do you guys use and what can you recommend? What do you think is the best one?

    Last question is, do I have to start the app everytime and will it clear my current desktop configuration (icon, wallpaper,etc) so that if I do decide not to use it, I will have to set everything up again?

    Thanks all.

    I recomend helix 1. If you choose set as default you will not have to choose it everytime you press home and if you decide to go back to the stock launcher your current setup will be saved

    Helix is popular, but I prefer the stock look (and function). You wont have to start the app every time, as long as you set the new home app as the default action, and you will have to re-setup your desktop configuration for the new app.

    Zeam seems pretty awesome. Nice performance, and some unique features.

    Up to 9 screens as well.

    I'm on the helix boat also. Helix launcher (original) has been working great for me.

    Just tried out Zeam for a bit and was pretty impressed! Really nice launcher. If I wasn't so attached to Helix's shortcuts at the bottom then Zeam would be my second choice.
