    What would you guys say the best home screen version is? (i.e. GDE, panda home, open home, or default home, etc.)

    I'm using Home++ beta and have been really liking it. Granted, this is the only one I've used so far besides the default. :)

    Well, I previously started with Open Home and liked it for a while. Later on while browsing the forums, I came across Home++ Beta. I downloaded it, and I'm enjoying it so far. So, I am currently using that now.

    ok love panda best yet but home++ may have potential, if u could change the icons itd be a seller, but the customization for a many app holder like me , like the long press on app for menu to edit icon , name, uninstall, those options are just far better. but if home plus is reading this, YO! hook it up bc its a touch smother, i am currently running panda and home++ to test , and so far panda has it. :icon_ banana:

    I like Home++ and GDE. Home++ is definitely the best free replacement

    Started with Open Home, liked it okay but transitioned to GDE. Found out about Home++ and I haven't even gone back to the other two. Depends on your preference, but like Adam said, I really think Home++ is the best free replacement.

    It's Home++ for me too. But, try them all out (uninstall the pay ones within 24 hours to get your money back). You'll find they all have a different feel to them- get the one that feels right to you.

    I'm pretty happy with Panda as well. It's been EXTREMELY stable and fast for me. Plus i like the idea of being able to use the free themes from aHome and openhome on it.

    I'll eventually jump on GDE once it's all updated and running perfectly.

    To get the Notification bar you just hold the notification button for 2 seconds and it wall stay there but to open the apps menu you have to use the Power strip

    I used PandaHome but I wasn't a huge fan. Home++ really does it for me, plus it's free. There aren't any themes for it yet, but I hear talk of there being themes and such in the works. I'll eventually shell out the bones for GDE once it's as close to perfect as it can get. Until then, I'm all about Home++.

    Okay thanks for the help, im going to try home++ for a little while then if i dont like that or just want to see the difference i'll switch to panda because i also like having multiple themes rather than a picture cutting off in the middle of my screen (like it does with the home++).

    Well I'm new to this as well. Tried Home++ and liked it except it slowed the opening/closing of apps a little. Animations were smooth though and I liked the idea of the base bar.

    I'm trying Pandahome now and so far so good. Seem about as quick as stock.

    I tried Open Home and aHome, but Panda Home wins hands down. Very stable and fast. Plus unlimited home screens and those cool little side docks that are just perfect for direct dial shortcuts.

    That is difficult question. Each person has their own idea's as to what they want in a replacement home screen. I have used just about all of them and currently I am back on the stock Home Screen. I like GDE, Home++ and Open Home. I didnt care much for Panda. What it all boils down to is personal preference, try them all and use the one that works best for you.
