    anyone else running the Home++ beta?
    just installed last night and i love it.
    it was really close between that and sweeter home. sweeter home was really cool, but it relied too heavily on non stock apps. and since it was still and early beta, it was pretty slow.

    screens of home++ coming in a second

    my favorite thing about home++ is the workspace looping. i can be on my far right screen, scroll right one more time and it will loop me to the far left screen
    comes in handy.
    and the dock is pretty awesome too
    and batterylife seems to be a bit better.

    I'm running it too, I used to run Helix, but I like Home++ mainly cause of the strip at the bottom, and I can also disable the notification bar at the top. It doesn't seem like a battery hog or a resource hog either.

    Thank you! Kind of an unrelated question, but how come when you root your phone you can not go back to 1.5 if you wanted?

    its a bit slow trying to drag icons from screen to screen but good other than that.

    Any idea how to change the default icons on the bottom of the screen

    you cant add new icons, but you can hide the ones that are already down there if you want.

    Pretty cool. I do like my big flip clock with weather on Sense, not sure if I will stick with this for my use, but I will continue to try it out. It has some very nice customizable features.
