Default Launchers for Rezound?

OK, after seeing the show off your screens thread, I realize that I have escaped a whole world of customization during the nearly 2 years I had my Incredible. Now I have a Rezound, and I might like to play.

Funny, I did so much back when I had my Blackberry, and even designed and uploaded many themes to some free share sites. So the concept is not totally lost on me, but I am far far far from being techie phone nerd (term applied lovingly, of course!)

OK, so can we start a thread here with some available launchers (why you like,etc) some icon packs, and a noob guide to using them.

thanks!

I used ADW Launcher on my hTC EVO 4G but ran into some lag issues on the Rezound so I've been using GO Launcher. My favorite thing is being able to switch to a 5 x 5 icon layout, and the ability to remove icon labels. Really clean screen layout.
Also the dock gives you five icons that remain static on all of your desktop screens. Here's my GO Launcher with Win7 theme and GNex wallpaper:

Of all I tried (I think pretty much all of them or the vast majority). Nemus was the best and fastest IMO. I thought all lagged to various degrees compared to Sense. I still use Sense BTW and have abandoned my experiments with launchers.

I found a new launcher. Swipe up to open your groups. You can add groups. Close the groups by swiping down and use your screens as usual. It's called Hi Launcher. By far the best launcher I've used.

Is there any way to get rid of the icon labels in Sense? I actually kind of like it, but it would be cool to go without the labels.

TIA

Nice! I regret I have no sense of design when it comes to stuff like this.

If wish! I like Sense well enough, but that and no 5x5 option are a deal breaker for me!

Default Multi Touch issue

I had GoLauncher and GoLocker on my Rezound, but i noticed alot of my multitouch games weren't working properly. I read elsewhere that Go might be the problem. I uninstalled both and have no more issues. Anyone else have any problems with GoLauncher and multitouch.
The games i was having problems with were CartoonWars:Gunner and Shadowgun.

I agree Brother. I love launcherpro on my rezound. I know it doesn't mean much, but i am close to a score of 3000 on quadrant using it. Sense doesn't get me over 2400.
