    Hey,

    I was wondering what everybody thought was the best launcher for ESE53 BB for the droid.

    I am currently using glass, which is alright but after seeing different launchers like Helix, I was wondering what people recommended what launcher to run.

    I would love to be able to either use MM or an update.zip and not have to run a separate program.

    Thanks!

    Why? Is that a new home-replacement app like betterhome etc.?

    +1 on Helix launcher. Has the best of all home replacements in a stable standalone launcher. Easy to skin too.

    +1 for helix, its absolutely perfect. Zero fc's, its fast and stable, the multiple shortcuts are amazing. I would definately pay for it if I needed to

    Does anybody know when he is going to finally release his new version that doesnt make it go to the top of the screen?

    That, the fact that the drawer isn't 3d, and the fact that icons look pixilated at the bottom when using bettercut, it would truly be perfect!

    Also, for some weird reason; I cannot use launcher2 even though im using 2.1 ese53. I have to download helixlauncher1 so it doesnt FC repeatedly

    I am happy to donate to someone who is developing for everybody else, but I am not going to directly spend money for a developer primarily looking for money.

    The icon is 256x256 png from deviantart.

    I will be downlading BB in a bit

    good news is he does make all the donation versions go to market i think the donation versions more of a donate for beta access kinda of thing which imo is a really good route

    im getting donation access mainly so i can work on my themes and make sure they work on the new version before most people will have it :)
