    I remember a couple months ago there was a Helix Beta that was shown and it looked great.
    Has there been any news or updates about it??
    It has been strangely quiet about it since it was featured here.

    <Bump>

    So the next version of Helix that was covered here a while ago is toast??
    Not really much info on it on the Helix site itself either.
    Anyone know what is up with it??

    Most of the time I've gone to the developers website and got the update from there.

    I was just surprised there was no news on it here after the feature story it had a while back with all the new teased features.
    Now nothing.
    I just wondered how the updates and bug testing was going. Not much info on their site.

    I think the development on this app was scrapped.

    Well, he did have a different version if you donated.

    Yeah, after I got LauncherPro I lost interest in Helix. Too bad as it was a nice launcher.

    The beta version that was for donations was the one that was reviewed here and looked great.

    Over at the website for Helix it looks like he is working on school stuff and will be back on the dev work for it soon. Still I kind of wanted to try the donate version the video's of it working look great.

    I am going to give Launcher Pro a try though.

    Hopefully things get back on track with Helix soon though as it has so much potential.
