I downloaded Launcher Pro (free) & ADW Launcher last night. I think I'm going to stick with Launcher Pro. I like it! My favorite feature is the scroll bar at the bottom. Putting shortcuts on that bar frees up space on my screen. The extra space is vacant for now but I like it not being cluttered & having a less obstructed view of my background. I love being able to customize my phone! Is this a perk of Android or does the "other" team have this capability also?
Yup. Scrolling dock on Launcher Pro is awesome (FYI - Go Launcher Ex has that as well). And I love it for the same exact reasons you do. I use an app called Smart Shortcuts
because it allows me to group the apps based on specific needs (e.g. Car/Nav apps, Social Networking, News & Entertainment, Work, etc.). What's great is that you can also name the groups however you need to name them and when you place the shortcuts on the dock, Launcher Pro allows you to change the icon (there are so many icon packs online that you can save to your SD and use in conjunction with the dock).
Yes, this IS a perk of Android and the BEST advantage it has over other Operating System(s) (OS) out there. Apple has some customization ability, but in order to do this type of thing with Apple, you have to jailbreak the phone (FTL). So, while Android has a 'bit more of a "learning curve," there are so many more customizing features available to Android users than there are for Apple (iPhone). I'm not an iPhone hater at all because I still think it is a very good phone (and much more straight forward), but there's no way I'd switch to an iPhone (I hate limitations and the iPhones are much more limited than Android phones, out the box).
