    I have been using DXTop and it works great, does not FC like Home ++ does.

    I dropped everything else when Helix came out. I'm sure the other home apps have had updates so are better than when I first tried them but Helix got it right for me first so I haven't continued to scout around trying different apps. the multiple home screens coupled with the 4 anchored icons at the bottom cinched it for me.

    DxTop here. No problems, easy to change icons with it too. The new one has cubes which I love!

    I'm using helix 2 now. Its been really snappy and like christim said the 4 apps on the bottom is hard to do without once you get used to it. Plus the N1 style app cycling iks pretty cool. Havent had an FC with it but I'm running a cyanogen Rom. only small issue is the app title in the app drawer gets cutoff sometimes going fromlandscape back to portrait.

    Home++ and Helix are the best out. cleanest looks and no crappy fake sense ui uglyness. Oh and you can hide the notification bar with both. big plus. phone looks much cleaner.

    When I had it, Home++ just FC'd way too much. I have since tried both GDE and ClockworkMod Launcher. Both are excellent and gave me few (if any) FC's.

    I used home and helix 1&2 now on panda home.I nandroid then run around trying them all for a week or so.I like helix one with 5 row app drawer, but it looses the anchored icons which I love but helix 2 app drawer the cube one seems sluggish.Panda home is nice but it isn't helix 2.=/ we'll see how it goes.

    Yes - I went from Home++ which I swore by to Helix (1) / If you get BetterCut, you can rename/ change/ etc.. (plus no fcs)

    There is an option to for "Full Screen;" that will hide the bar.

    While I still have GDE as a home option, I pretty much dropped Home++ (which was very good) for Helix and especially Helix Launcher 2.

    +1 for Helix 1. I like Helix 2, but it's just not snappy enough for me... but I'm obsessed with "snappiness", so take that with a grain of salt. Also, can't live without the anchored icons now...
