    Home launcher replacement with dockbar

    I've been exploring the plethora of launcher replacements recently, and so far have settled on Helix 1. For me, the big deal is having a dockbar with the same apps seen on all screens.

    I'm converting from an iphone, and hard to believe, I do think they did it right with their 4 app dockbar (gasp gasp, I know, awful to admit it). For anyone familiar with jailbroken iphone add-ons, I used Stack as two of the 4 docked icons to provide even more always accessible apps.

    Are there any launchers which can give more than the 4 app dockbar (+app drawer). Or have a folder/shortcut as one of the docked icons? Right now I'm running a stock N1, unrooted, no intention on root access for now.

    I know pandahome has those funky pull-out drawers, which are sort of like what I'm looking for, but I felt it a little laggy.

    dX:top allows you to have up to 5 icons on a dock that is available on all screens. I believe they have a lite version out that you can try.

    Ahh, thanks for the tip. I'm checking it out now. Some nifty ideas incorporated into it, such as if you have only 4 screens in a diamond pattern, you can swipe to any of the others with just one movement.

    The other option is sweeterhome 2, though customization of that takes quite a lot of work.
