    I second his recommendation of Helix Launcher. Helix Launcher is the normal launcher, Helix Launcher 2 is the 3d launcher version.

    If you want speed and stability go with helixlauncher but if you want the 3D app drawer and a 3D dock then go with helixlauncher2

    although i used helix launcher for 2 months and loved it i couldent help but go back to stock. The phone has NO lag anymore like it did with the launcher, it wasnt bad lag but it would happen like in the settings menu and especially in the messaging app. I didnt even need 7 screens, i used 3 screens the first month and just added 2 more for the second month and just filled them up with usless apps and picture frames. The helix app drawer is very laggy even when scrolling extremely slow. Untill someone comes out with a home replacement app that is equal or even close to equal to the stock home them im not switching, and i have yet to see one, and probably never will any time soon.

    You must have used helix2. The non 3d helix is quick.

    Even o/c I have noticed some lag and f/c with hl1. It has happened enough where I use the stock screen majority of the time. With that said, HL is still the best home replacement app hands down.

    i had HL set to 5 screens, but it seemed laggy so I went back to stock 'home', but couldn't live without the 4 anchor apps on the bottom, so i'm back to HL set to 3 screens, seems alot more responsive than the 5 screens.
