    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...

    So if you are non-rooted can you NOT use Helix 2?

    It will force close on you most of the time. Just stick with Helix Launcher and you'll be fine. :D Helix Launcher 2 just offers the 3D app launcher while Helix Launcher does not.
