    I know a lot of people have moved on to Helix 2, but I'm still using 1. It works for what I need it for, its faster, and I'm not a big fan of the 3D app drawer anyways.

    still using 1 b/c of speed issues... plus, in 2, i can't do one real fast swipe and go to the end of my apps... have to swype over and over - 2 is much prettier though :)

    honestly, if it wasn't for the anchored apps at the bottom, i'd go with the stock launcher b/c it's so quick (even moreso than helix1 for me) - if there's a launcher out there that has the anchored apps AND the speed of stock, that would be nice...

    Helix 1 for me as well.
    2 is too slow for me.

    Ditto

    On Helix 1 as well - speed and stability the reasons.

    Same here. And my Helix 1 is from the donated site. GDE is my only other home, but I haven't used it in a long time.

    Used 2 for a while but am currently back to 1. I can do without the 3D app drawer. I did like the 4 static apps though at the bottom. Wish the dev would add this to 1.

    I am still on Helix1 and love it. I see no need for the 3D app drawer. The main reason for 7 screens is so I never have to open the app drawer. I couldn't tell you if it was 3D or not.

    I'm still on Helix1. I've tried 2 and, like everyone else, found it slower. I did like being able to hide the notification bar and icon names in 2, but I'll take the speed over those.

    For those using the donate Helix 1 Beta, does that version give the ability to hide the notification bar?

    Never tried Helix 2. I have no need for a 3d app drawer.. I had it earlier and didn't like it.
