    Which is the most highly recommended? I hear that both Home++ and Sweeter Home are good. I'd like something that looks like Sense UI if possible.

    GDE is the most stable one I've used - turn off the cube transition
    and it has a much nicer app drawer.

    Hmm, any tips on how to find "GDE" in AndroLib?
    ...all my searches for home replacements are completely flooded with search results for themes for home replacements. :rolleyes:

    Ah sorry, found it. It costs money, so for now I'm locked out. :(

    Is there a problem with the cube animations? They look bad-ass in the preview.

    I like the cube transition

    I used

    Home
    Home ++
    Launcher
    Panda Home
    dxtop
    GDE

    SweeterHome2 is the most powerful, and the most time consuming, and in my own experience, the most unstable. Once they remove it from beta it will be awsome

    I use GDE, and it's very stable

    Home++'s best attribute is the hidden notification bar

    No, the only thing that will show you have a notification is the led

    There is an icon with a "!" to see the notification bar
