    I love the sliding bottom bar on Home++. I consider that feature a must have because of the space it clears up on my main screen.

    The problem is, I want to try some of the other Home Launchers. Is there an app will just give me that small launch bar that will work with other Home mods?

    HelixLauncher. I was a Home++ guy until this came out. Snappier, up to 7 screens, and you can put whatever you want on that strip on the bottom.

    Another former home++ guy. Helixlauncher is the best launcher/replacement I've ever used. And if you have a 2.1ROM, it supports live interactive wallpaper.

    I am another Home++ to Helix convert. Home++ was awesome but too many FCs to really be something I would promote. HelixLauncher is mint.

    I use GDE with hero theme for my app drawer and extra buttons, so far so good after using it about 3 weeks. I find that even with 5 screens, I will put a bunch of widgets up and end up killing my battery a lot faster, than when I had 3 screens and less widgets. Mainly it was a twitter widget that was eatting it up.

    Just installed helix launcher, fast, love the app dock on the bottom and no FC's yet. I really liked Home++ but the FC's were killing me. Working great with my live wallpapers too. I never thought I was so ADD when it came to what my phone/home screens look like but I change it every couple of days!

    helixlauncher is smoother; helix launcher 2 is not at least for me.

    Helix here too. I finally clicked the "use this one as the default" button so I no longer get the option box for Helix, the original home and home++. I'd bounce between the others but this works good. Added Ultimatefaves down in the bottom bar too.
