    Hey, I'll try to make this question as simple as possible. I have been reading online about different applications that can give my motorola droid 5 or 7 homescreens, as 3 seems to be a bit restricting. Its not a big deal, but I would like to add 2 or 4 if possible.

    I have downloaded a couple of free versions and they have seemed to really clutter up the phone and would probably drain the battery faster. I am happy to pay a little bit for a working system, but I just wanted to know if there was something that would:

    1) Not take up a whole lot of battery.
    2) Not mess up the wallpaper dimensions (so I can use my old ones).
    3) Not alter the look of the actual phone, just add the screens.
    4) Use all of my current widgets
    <and>
    5) Not slow down the phone

    I really appreciate any possible help, and if there isn't a program that does those things don't be afraid to tell me to keep dreaming!

    Launcher+ Beta.

    All it does is add home screens. Up to 7.

    Launcher+ Betta

    I just dl'd Launcher+ Beta and most of my widgets that i have do not work with it... Here is a list of widget that i use that will not work:

    Battery Left
    Brightness Level
    More Icons Free 1x1
    Weather Forcast Widget
    Blue RSS
    Texts From Last night
    EasyMoney

    That only leaves me with three more that i use that do work :( 3 out of 10 isnt very good, i would be ok giving up one or two for more screens, but these widgets are the reason i wanted more screens to begin with... This renders the Launcher+ Beta app useless.

    I just tried Launcher+ and its working great. One comment I read while booting up was that some widgets are not made to run on two screens at once (Droid one and the Launcher+ one), so that might have caused some of your problems rmart.

    One more question: How much battery life will this take up being my default screen/what performances issues could result?

    Thanks again!

    Most home apps slowed my phone down so much i realized i could deal with 3 just fine.

    I use home++ and I really like it. I am not overclocked and have no lag issues. My wall paper is the same as I had. I have four homescreens and I have a great clock /weather widget. Good app.

    Yeah i read that shortly after i uninstalled Launcher+. Thanks though :) aaaand was going to redownload it, but then i read that 2.1 OTA will be here starting this (or next week).... so imma just wait for that. If i dont hear of anyone getting the OTA update by the end of next week, i will try Launcher+ again.
