Anyone here still using Home++? It hasn't been updated recently and It started force closing a lot (3-4 times a day). I decided to uninstall it, I'd have to say the only thing I really miss is the power strip at the bottom (I was only using 3 and a half screens anyway) Anyone know if there is another program that gives that functionality?

@iamthewinnar,
When the 2.1 update rolls out, it will have 5 screens.

Yea, like I said though, the screens wasn't what I liked about home++ it was the power strip at the bottom. Trying to see if I can find something similar...

@iamthewinnar,
I've been having the force close issues, too. Its only been the past couple days. I love that power strip as well, it just eliminates the need for the normal home screen apps. Love being able to turn the notification bar off, too. Oh, and the continuous scrolling.

I don't know of any other home replacement app that offer any of those features, so I've stuck w/ it despite its lag (which thanks to overclocking is no longer an issue). Hopefully they'll update soon, and if it solves the prob, I'll let ya know.

@iamthewinnar,
I was only using four screens, but it did start getting buggy. Besides, Home++ started to seem pretty redundant. I made the decision to uninstall it and haven't really missed it (except that I like the way it hid the notification panel and the continuous scrolling). Pretty happy now with my 5 stock screens and no bugginess!

@iamthewinnar,
I also recently nuked my Droid just to mess around with it, and some how i got the home screen to go into landscape mode without taking the keyboard out before the nuke, but doesnt want to do that now. Any ideas to get it back to doing that?

Ok, I just learned how to root; nuking is something completely new to me.
