    Has anybody else been having a lot of issues since the last update?

    Prior to the last update, I only had a couple force closes. They were reasonably far apart, and for the same program, so I shut that program down and the force closes went away.

    Since the last update, I get 6 or 7 force closes a day on any random combination of programs, even stock stuff like messaging. It got so bad that I had to go back to the stock Home to get away from them.

    So, am I alone, or is this pretty common.

    I've recently downloaded home++ four days ago and haven't experienced any issues with it, not even a battery difference.
    Its running really well on my Droid.

    I also had major issues with Home++ in the last couple of days. Today in fact, I could not dial any numbers from my contact list. It would simply hang.

    Extra screens simply isn't worth it to me if I can't make a damn call when I need to! I switched over to the stock home and I'll stick with it until 2.1 comes out.

    I wonder if there is an app causing it to not play well. I am using home++ right now and it's working well. Maybe you all have a common app running in the background causing that issue.

    So you know Handcent doesn't play well with GDE and causes Fc after FC. so that had to be uninstalled

    I uninstalled yesterday. I installed the one with just added home screens. Today I got a lot of fc on it, so will be uninstalling it too.

    Home++ has been nothing but solid for me lately.
    Running very well.

    No problem with Home++ here. I did have a HUGE problem with RingDroid yesterday (force closes in it and media player with playing it's files but since I removed RingDroid all is well...

    Though I have noticed since putting Home++ on that the auto-rotation is SLOW and not very sensitive. But other than that seems fine for me.

    Huge issues suddenly

    I just got it dialed in perfectly and all of the sudden I am getting repeated force close and even froze my device a few times today. I haven't updated any apps or downloaded any in a few days, so I don't know what triggered this. It was flawless for the past two weeks. Weird.

    I uninstalled Dolphin basically because it stinks. But my browser button on the bottom of Home ++ was linked to Dolphin and won't go anywhere now when I hit it - any way to fix this?

    Never mind I figured it out...

    When we get 2.1 I may dump Home ++ but I can't help but like the 7 screens and the shortcuts at the bottom.

    My only problem with that theory is that it is not a consistent set of apps that is FC'ing on me. It can be anything from handcent to the dialer to the screen switcher. Yes, I had a Home++ FC when switching screens.

    I will keep my eye out for the next update, but I won't be running it again before I went back to running the stock Home, and there are no issues at all.

    Home++ sucks!!!!!! nothing but FCs all damn day. but i still have it lol. i really like getting rid of the status bar and the button at the bottom. ill see what 2.1 looks like. if its good enough, ill be dumping home++, just like i did with that worthless dolphin brower.

    seems like theres more bad than good apps out there for our phones

    when I see a commonality of good runs with home++, I will reinstall. Looks like there is still allot of issues with it. I like home++ allot, but it sucked to run it as a reliable theme. Come on home++, charge us money and make it go!!!!!!!!!!

    Even with 2.1 having more screens, I'm gonna be hard pressed to get rid of Home++, merely because you can hide the taskbar. Hopefully, just as launcher++ is a stripped version of Home++ just for screens, the developer will release an app just to hide the taskbar. Maybe Taskbar++?

    I just uninstalled Home ++ after having it for a long time - not many FC's but to even open the app drawer took minutes. Also the bottom links are over-rated.

    I'm trying the new Launcher that was just posted which is taken from 2.1. - More FC's but it comes back up almost instantly.

    Yep. I'm dropping Home++ the second 2.1 is here. I only put up with the force closes for the extra screens.

    Wow, I'm surprised everyone is having so much trouble with Home++. I haven't noticed any more FC's than usual (maybe one or two every couple of days) lately.

    I'll stick with it for now at least.

    Not troubles... I just wanted it for more screens and fell in love with the hidden taskbar. I'd be willing to give up home++ if 2.1 is gonna have more screens and an app came out for auto-hiding the taskbar. Otherwise Home++ for me is staying
