So happy. Was browsing through google (keyword search "android icons") and I found a download link with some awesome android icons that was posted in the Motorola Droid X sub-forum

How To: Custom Icons For Your Droid X

I replaced all my dock icons in LPP using those!

Thanks. The words in the dock bar are the "dreamlyfe" original theme which can be downloaded here: Dreamlyfe Design: Themes . The lock screen is "widgetlocker" [available on the market] which gives you tons of options as far as customizing the lock screen, paid app but well worth it IMO. Time and date are the "Tajm" widget on the market, and yes I am using an Evo.

After using LauncherPro Plus exclusively for a couple months...I think I've been converted to Go Launcher. It just seems a lot smoother to me than LPP. When LPP gets the major overhaul in April, maybe I'll convert back.

Go Launcher has the scrollable dock, which is my favorite part of LP (and I like the stock icons they have better for the dock). Only thing missing is the same type of widgets that LPP has, but I think I'm going to live without the one widget I can't seem to find a replacement for "Friends" widget.

I've found a free bookmarks widget that will work fine for me. I tried the Scrollable Contact Widget I used to use (that was unfortunately having issues being used with Launcher Pro) and it works perfect with Go Launcher. I already have an Agenda Calendar Widget that I prefer over the LPP Agenda Calendar Widget. I'm pretty much set.

Just wish this had come out prior to my buying LPP, but oh well.

Okay, I found 1 thing I don't like about Go Launcher.

On LPP, I could hide the toolbar and then anytime I needed to pull down the notification bar, all I had to do is hit the menu button and it would drop down along with the bottom menu.

With Go Launcher, that doesn't happen. Once you've selected to hide the taskbar/notification bar, you can't access it from the homescreen (at least, that's how it seems to me).

If I'm missing something and there's a way to hide the taskbar, but also be able to access it right away, would someone that's using Go Launcher let me know how to set that up?

There's also an app on the market called LauncherProIcons (works with any launcher that will let you customize icons) that has a library of icons for almost all apps and phone functions.

It will load up a page where you can scroll through and can just tap to replace icons for apps you already have installed, and you can scroll through all of them and tap the ones you want to download and they will be saved to /sdcard/LauncherProIcons. From that folder you can select the icons from the gallery to assign to apps.

They're very nice minimalistic icons.

Hey, I just started using go launcher and I am digging it. For the Notification if you go to preferences then "operation settings" you can assign "Up glide response" and "down glide response". So since you swipe your finger down to pull down the notification bar anyway I set the down glide response to "show/hide notification bar" so you swipe your finger down the middle of the screen and it shows the notification bar again, then you can pull it down, when you want to hide it again and just swipe down the middle of the screen again and it will hide it. You do have the option to use the menu key as well though.

Thanks. Someone had also given me that info, regarding the swype gesture, on the Droid X forums, so I have it set for now.

How do you set it so that the menu key makes the notification bar show/hide?

I liked Launcher Pro until it "expired" and caused me to waste a lot of time fixing the mess. Will never trust the developer again. Too bad, because it allowed me to remove or customize features as desired.

Then I tried Modaco's Gingerbread launcher, and liked it. Would prefer a Sense-less stock 2.3 interface (and apps).

But I reverted to the original Sense, because it still runs in the background anyway, is stable, and isn't that much worse than anything else. IMO.

I'd give ADW a try. The free version is better than the free Launcher Pro IMO. You don't get the widgets or the multiple docks, but it doesn't give you an annoying pop up when you try to edit a widget and accidentally trigger a resize.

I actually intended to try out LP+ on the day that expiration fiasco happened. Luckily the site went down as well so I managed to run across a thread about the crippling expiration before I had a chance to pay for it.

I'd recommend Go Launcher over the free version of Launcher Pro.

You get the multiple docks, just like Launcher Pro, AND you can re-size as part of the free launcher.

I use Widgetsoid for that and it's awesome! And Free!

Widgetsoid2.x - Android app on AppBrain

For a long time, I stuck with Sense because of the widgets, but the more I found apps to replace things that I really liked on Sense UI, I haven't gone back to using Sense in a long time.

I'm now running cyanogenmod, which integrates the ADW launcher, and the combination is working well enough for me (and perhaps the less adventurous minded).

I started messing around with Go launcher yesterday and so far I really like it. I had been having a bad problem with Sense having to reload almost every time I go to Home, and so far no such issues with Go. I also like how easy it is to set everything up.

Haven't noticed any battery drain at all. In fact, my battery seems to be better with GoLauncher than when I was using Launcher Pro Plus.

And if you were referring to widgetsoid, no extra battery drain from what I've seen.

OK I am having issues with home reloads again (I think it is widget locker causing the troubles), but Go reloads in about 1/3 the time it took for Sense to do so.

I understand where your coming from. I just started trying other launchers and they are faster than Sense. The only thing I can say about sense is that they have the best widgets in my opinion. They are beautiful and they all match perfectly. On the other hand GO LAUNCHER and LAUNCHER PRO PLUS are very fast. The level of customization almost has no limits. I still like Sense but I have been using LP for about a month and I'm pleased. I think GO LAUNCHER is better but it does not have widgets like LP.

I don't use widget locker anymore. I think the idea is nice but it's unstable. I would say this app doesn't work real well with the Evo in my opinion.

So what are the best calendar/agenda widgets to use since we cant use the stock calendar on Go Launcher. I have Smooth Calendar Widget on my home screen but i want a full size calendar or something close to it. I downloaded Jorte but I think it looks rather weak personally.

I like Go Launcher, I like the way the Launcher looks when I look at all my apps (scrolling from left to right, also allowing me to see my homescreen background is a PLUS). Will be sticking with this for a while. Tried LPP, it was ok...

Other than that, I reverted back to LPP just because of the widgets and the 10X10 configuration, which I didn't realize would benefit me a lot as far as positioning widgets so that it wouldn't block parts of my wallpaper.

I actually intended to try out LP+ on the day that expiration fiasco happened. Luckily the site went down as well so I managed to run across a thread about the crippling expiration before I had a chance to pay for it.
I've been a very happy user of LPP for awhile now (paid version). I see that you note an expiration issue above. I never experienced any issues and I've been a user since last year. What actually happened? I'll prob run a search, but just wondering.

Yea.... after the latest update for both Go Launcher AND Zeam, couldn't deal with the lag, currently using ADW launcher and liking it. We'll see how long it last. Personally, I like Sense and it runs pretty fast on my Evo, just wish it had landscape homescreen and I wouldn't have to fumble with these other launchers.

I have to say, with the amount of changes and updates Go Launcher has had lately (and at a rapid pace), I'm on the verge of going back to that.

Launcher Pro Plus has been getting slower and slower since I've gone back and there won't be any updates until Fede releases the revised launcher. If the widgets that Go Launcher is supposed to add to the next update end up being good, I might just jump ship again and use Go Launcher as my dedicated Launcher.

I've tried just about every home replacement out there and I still think LauncherProPlus is the best. It's the most customizable without sacrificing functionality.

On another note, I have been playing around with a few others, that while they're not really what I like for day to day use, they are kind of fun to play around with.

Metro UI ... Windows phone 7 clone
iClone ... iPhone ripoff
Android Seven ... Windows pc desktop
SPB Mobile Shell ... awesome 3D effects

I so addicted to the scrollable dock on LP+ that it's gonna be hard to permanently move to another launcher.

I have used LP for the last 6 months, first on my Hero and then a Shift. Just loaded up Go Launcher and going to give that a try. One thing I am not sure I like though is the extra steps required to get an app out of the drawer and onto a screen...

You do know that the scrollable dock is also available on Go Launcher Ex, right?

It's a REALLY good launcher and I think it's actually more stable than LPP. only thing is, I'm waiting for the new release that'll include widgets. That's really the only thing still keeping me using LPP. Until Fede releases the new launcher with all the revisions he's currently working on, I have to go with something more stable.

LauncherPro hands down. Using the scrollable bar, and swipe gesture in the bar lets me keep everything so tidy.

WTF?...$15 for an app? Nope. No Home launcher is worth that amount of money IMO.
