    I too had too many FCs on Home++ and it was also compromising overall performance so I uninstalled it the other day. Waiting on 2.1 before I give Helix a try.

    That sounds right. I don't think "Tag" is the right word... The app probably calls it label. The concept is the same though.

    After 2.1 you'll be waiting for a new version of Helix. I hear Helix2 is not liking 2.1 update 1 too much.

    I've noticed no real difference and GDE is my only other non-stock Home. I'll have to check it and see what happens to my battery.

    I am a DNA guy, yeah helix is sick. Home ++ had WAY TO MANY FORCE CLOSES. I have used them both allot, and helix and home ++ have one thing different...helix = no FC,s while Home ++ will hit you with them. Helix = way more reliable IMHO

    Running stock vs Helix, I have noticed no battery difference. Even live wallpapers don't impact the droid to much. I do manage GPS and brightness though...
