    I seem to be having some issues with Home++ recently and was wondering if anyone else is experiencing this. For starters, over the last few days I'm getting the Home++ is not responding alert. If I click "Wait", the phone acts as normal. If I click "Force Close", Home++ will restart and the phone will act as normal. The phone has also just been real sluggish lately. I restart it once a day and that doesn't seem to help anything. With the rumors of Android 2.1 coming out soon I may ditch Home++. I love it but am tired of these issues.

    I too have seen a significant increase in the number of FC in Home++ in the last few days. Before that I hardly ever had a problem, in the last few days I've seen at least 4. What changed?

    Yeah, it happens multiple times a day on mine. It'll pop up right after I enter my unlock pattern.

    Since the last update, I've been getting 1 or 2 force closes per day doing various things on the phone and clicking the home softkey. Sometimes even after entering my unlock pattern also.

    No problems here. I'm guess you are using more than 3 home screens correct?

    I was using four up until this weekend and I attempted to use all seven screens. It has become almost unusable. I still love it but will have to drop back down to four.

    I went back down to three screens and turned off the endless scrolling. We'll see how these settings treat me.

    I have been using 6 screens since I installed it last month and all of a sudden this past weekend it has asked me to force close at least 6 times now. I will try reducing the number of screens to see if that helps, but the reason I installed this app was so that I could have 5 screens or more.

    Only 3 screens here, but a lot of FCs. lol, I thought it was the custom ROMS I've been loading on my Droid and the overclocking.

    I dumped home++ a long time ago for unreliability. I don't think they deserve a beating, as they are giving it away. I would rather them charge a few bucks and put some back bone intuitit! I haven't had a force or wait in a seriously ridiculous amount of time.....refreshing!
