    Alright, so i got my 2.1 update for the motorola droid today and was pretty upset when i found out that their are still only 3 screens! So my question is what would you guys recromend the best application is for adding more homescreens i know their are many out there. Thats my main question, my second question is if anyone know how much the live wallpapers use up the battery. Is it drastically?

    Thanks!

    I personally like the helix launcher. If you decide you want to try it out, don't DL Helix Launcher2, that is for the nexus and causes a constant loop force close on the droid. And let's be honest constant loop closes are about as sweet as a being pushed off a bridge.

    +1 for helix and Dxtop

    ive personally used both and they each have there pro's and con's. but in terms of whether or not you wanna pay for one then go with helix because its free.

    I fell in love with sweeter home 2, 5 screens, and completely, and I mean completely customizable, you can squeeze more stuff on a screen, basically get about 1 more row of widgets

    Helix user here, no complaints. (Although I still have it set to just 3 screens haha, I just wanted the bottom row of constant icons).

    I know it's still somewhat being tested out but have you had any FC's or noticed a big lag, also are you running 2.1?

    GDE for me. i'm using 4 screens right now. i had 5 up and it was fine, but i cleaned things up and now only use 4. the obsidian theme with the cube effect is sweet as hell.

    I'm using Helix Launcher with 7 screens and love it. I finally bought an app too, I had to get the Beautiful Widgets. Well worth the $1.99
