    Ok, I'm considering one of the above apps. I pretty much know what they have to offer but have read issues with force closes for all.

    So I ask, when weighing features against stability which is best in your opinion?

    I've been using GDE and love it, no stability issues for me.

    Unfortunately, I don't think it's currently available in the market.

    Android 2.1. Five homescreens are all I need.

    I've been using Home++, had some stability issues initially, but they've updated a few times since I loaded it, and stability is no longer an issue.

    Had pandahome and thought it was good. Even latest updates were creating too many FCs so I tried Home++ and in the words of Borat, "Great Success" lol. I really having the choice of notification bar and the power strip at the bottom is great. No noticeable lagging and no FCs yet.

    GDE is working great for me. Since the last update almost a week ago I have not had a single force close. Seems much more stable than previous versions

    GDE works great for me, although I have had a couple of FC's.

    I have only used openhome, pandahome and home++ beta. I really like the stability of home++ beta. It seems to be pretty fast. One thing I don't like about home++ is that it goes to landscape sometimes when plugging in the USB or unplugging and you have to wait for it to go back to portrait. Other than that I like the toolbar at the bottom and that you can get rid of the notification screen at the top. I never liked the drag down feature of the notification bar. Now with Home++ I just quick press the i icon at the bottom and my notification window comes up quickly. I like!:icon_ banana:

    I use GDE and Home ++. Lately I have been having some Force Closes on both. I dont know why because they usually worked flawless for me. I love GDE for transitions and thr Obsidian Theme is amazing for to me. BUT when I cannot get the GDE messaging widget to work lately its not updating dunno why. Home ++ is great and simple. But that has been laggy for me. I dont think its the home replacements themselves but an app I have installed.

    I also have Open Home but I never use it. I dont like the slide outs (just my preference)
