Default App drawer and Market list lag - LauncherPro, ADW, Stock

Personally I don't care for the behavior and lack of customization of sense (as compared to Launcher Pro). I noticed there is massive lag when opening the app drawer using LP. Anyone else experiencing this?

I noticed lag but it's not what I would call massive. Do you think it has to do with the app drawer speed? I have mine on 7 but haven't tried to see how it would work on other speeds.

how is launcher pro on the 3d? its usually what i run. gonna dl it now.

do you still get the same lockscreen?
--yes.

can you still not use HTC widgets?
--can not use them.

i really dont like the carousel and paginated app drawer on sense 3.0

Not seeing any lag on the app drawer here.

and you get the same notification screens as on sense 3.0

I really don't notice any lag. I also use his option to hide certain apps that I don't use all the time.

When I open the drawer it stutters while doing the animation for opening the drawer. Same effect when I close it. Scrolling after it opens is fine.

I see the same issue on ADW Launcher. Aside from the app drawer, everything else is buttery smooth, and the icons on the home screens are sharp, unlike the Sense launcher.

Ok. Wiped the SD card (again) and factory reset the phone. Completed blue tooth sync; logged into market and installed Launcher Pro. No lag. I have not installed any add-ons or configured anything.

I will do the time tested install an app; retest the drawer...

Changes:

- Installed the HTC "update" that comes up for the widgets and stuff after the factory reset. Everything stil working well

-Set Launcher as default app. No change still smooth

I think I have found the culprit. Once i started changing preferences I was fine until I selected "High quality scrolling" under the advanced menu. Once I did that the app drawer lagged, even after un-checking it. Tried clearing data- No change

I then tried uninstalling the app and it still is lagging. About to clear SD card to see if that works...


-Cleared SD card; no change. Restoring to factory settings!

For whatever reason, this morning when I scrolled through the app drawer in ADW Launcher, it was smooth...

I think the problem is rendering the images. This wont happen though if you don't have a lot of apps. Same thing happens when you scroll in the Market app. The only other launcher I do not see any lag in scrolling is Go Launcher. I think IMO its better than LP Pro. The themes are awesome. Marry it with colorize widget to get your fb, agenda, bookmark, twitter widgets.

no, the problem can't be rendering the images, since setting the 3d option on "fixes" it
the same thing doesn't happen with the market, and it's not the scrolling that's lagging in the first place (like mentioned a couple of times already), it's the opening/closing the app drawer

I know that with the OG EVO, once it got the Gingerbread update people started noticing the same lag with Launcherpro and even LPP. It was chalked up as general concensus that LP just had issues running properly on Gingerbread. I use ADW EX and there is no lag whatsoever. If you're looking for a good free alternative, check out GO Launcher.

Is it possible to have sense widgets on launcher pro? Has anyone figured it out? I can only get the additional ones to download off hub like fortune cookie etc

Is ADW the same?

RAdroider -

No - You can't use sense widgets on LP or ADW -
Lock Screen DOES stay the same - You can Use Widget locker if you want to change that.

Possible LAG cause is that big ol Fat pig SENSE running in the background.
LP/ADW/GO won't run perfectly until we can get rid of Sense....

I mean I feel like I paid for sense, I dont really wanna throw it away.

Is there anything that can be done to make the dock like LP without losing sense

I tried GO launcher and experienced the same type of lag. Wondering if it has something to do with the icon cache not being big enough (or even built) causing the lag.

Default Phones installed app catalog scroll feature messed up?

I notice when I open the installed app catalog on my phone (apps), that the phone scrolls vertically by page, and that each page is separated by a horizontal line. I also notice that as I scroll down the apps, page by page, the dividing line gets out of sync.. Eg, starts to travel up the page, pretty much rendering it useless. Anyone else notice this?

Yep - it's a known issue that seems to move about a bit.

If you look at the process CPU monitors and do some list scrolling, it causes the CPU to spike to maximum.

In my case, I cured this with rooting and a bit of overclocking with netarchy's kernel.

The app drawer working in pages, by the way, was introduced in Sense 2.1.

The scrolling lag issue will show up in other places, such as the Market lists, for example.

My HTC Sensation 4G exhibits the same problem when scrolling through lists. This is annoying as hell while my friends Nexus S flies all over the damn place!

Note to HTC: You don't know how to code. Stop with it! You can make merry in your wet dreams but give us the option, as users paying $500, to kick sense to the curb like the dirt it is.

PS I am using GO Launcher EX which is awesome.

Some people like Sense.

But it's a big software stack and it comes at a price.

If you don't care for it, root your phone and drop it altogether - nothing wrong with that.
