    well im confused as to how i can run 2 different "home" programs, but in anycase, how do i take all the pages of apps i had on the stock home app, and move them to Home++ so they are all in the same place etc, or do i have to do it manually? also how do i get to the settings for home ++, ie change the "docked" icons?

    -thanks in advanced

    Home++ is just an overlay of the stock home. If you don't clear out the icons an widgets in the Home section your battery will drain fast and you might see some performance degradation.

    Before you get all excited, start installing icons and widgets. Everyone has Force Closure problems and many have gone back to the stock home. Of course, 2.1 is weeks away and will give you 5 screens and other goodness that makes Home++, panda, etc... worthless.

    Good luck..

    well the one thing that i do really like about it so far is the "power strip" as they call it, but besides that in the 10 minutes ive had it, it has forced closed 3 times hah, but yea i am going to uninstall, i just want to find a way to change my lock screen wallpaper to be different than the main wallpaper, i thought i read home++ could do it, anyone know if 2.1 will have that option?

    btw thanks for telling me about the widget stuff :)

    You can add an app called Home Switcher, which makes it easy to swap home screens.

    I don't think 2.1 will make other Home apps obsolete as they have features the stock screen doesn't have.

    I've used Home++ for some time and it's worked fine for me. Maybe an FC once a week, if that.

    It is accurate information. I also had Home++ for about a month but totally uninstalled it and back to the default Home screen and it is much faster. But, if you decide you're staying with Home++ you should remove the widgets from your stock Home screen.

    Thanks! I will have to debate that as it is a pain to add them all again!
