Question Launcher question.

I read some threads here that talked about Launcher Pro, so I decided to give it a go and I love it! The problem is, it makes my Optimus S lag, mostly on the unlock screen. Is there any way to fix this? Or do you recommend a different Launcher?

Try ADW but I thought Launcher pro was a little faster.

Trying the ADW, It's actually faster. But I miss some Launcher Pro features like 3D app drawer and 5 items in the dock instead of just 3. Thanks!

Default All the other launchers I hate... get Live home!

LIVE HOME

Live home has 3d features, doesn't kill battery and has so many features like a built in task manager and app search and also you can organise the apps altabeticly and you can have up to 7 screens with live and regular wall papers with easy acsess links and a hidden easy app place and has folder and widget support.
The best part is the easy menus, and... YOU CAN RESIZE YOUR WIDGETS !!

Get live home today... it's. FREE!

I really like GO Launcher. Doesn't seem to cause any lag and is highly customizable.

When you switched over to LP, did you clear all your homescreens first?

I was verklempt over trying to learn android while discovering the shortcomings of the stock browser, so when I discovered Launcher Pro, I was too relieved and to be concerned about other lanunchers, be they better or not.
