    Uh..

    I don't like the stock home on my Droid.

    Suggestions on any good Home apps?

    I keep hearing about problems with Home++ and Pandahome and stuff.

    Thanks...

    I have only used PandaHome and OpenGesture.
    Both are good.

    Well I use Open Home, you have to pay for a few bucks but you get 7 screens. I have never had it force close either....

    Been using PandaHome, have it configured for 7 screens, 4 sidedocks, and have no problems. With each update it gets better and better. Oh, and the price is right. It's free.

    I think dxTop has the most features; task manager, changes icons, rename, categories, task manager.

    5 icon bar.

    I love home++ and never seem to have issues. Then again I'm running 1.6 on the mt3g

    I use Home++ and haven't had any problems with it. I've had Force Close messages before but I click Wait and everything works fine. I tried dxTop but I really didn't want themes, just the extra functions and screens so Home++ was the way to go for me.

    I have so many favorites. I switch between Home++, PandaHome, dxTop, OpenHome, and GDE. They all have features that I like. When one is force closing/lagging more then I just switch to another.

    My overall favorite, though, has to be Home++. It has not force close on me once, and it is very smooth. The only thing I don't like about though is the lack of features when compared to the other home replacements.

    It is all a matter of personal preference though.

    I love Home++, lots of features that the regular home screen doesn't offer, more screens, and i have had a few force closes, but none recently. Love the feature to NOT have the wallpaper scroll. Makes the home screens feel much smoother. And The Power strip at the bottom of all the screen with the shortcuts is nice too. And it free, I'd definitely give it a try if i were you.
