    ive been looking all over at new home launchers. im on miui pikachu 2.3.7 and no matter what launchers i try i always end up back on the default launcher. ive tried go launcher, launcher pro, adw ex launcher, launcher 7, rocket launcher the list goes on. none have made me want to make that my default launcher or actually seem to deliver what they promise. the only launcher that looks like it can deliver is spb launcher but the fact they dont offer a trial is a bit off putting in case its slow or laggy on my defy before forking out

    Thanks for the awesome list... you know, I use Launcher Pro BUT combined with WP CLOCK live wall paper. Launcher Pro allows the home screen to rotate while in my dock (I use this dock Motorola MOTODEV DEFY MB525 2nd Battery USB Cradle) and the wall paper shows time, date, battery status, wifi status, network connection and is highly customizable.

    i did try that wallpaper for a while but have to admit im a bit of a sucker for the htc looking clock and weather widget. the best one ive found is fancy widgets. im actually using 360 launcher which isnt on the market and it seems pretty good so far.. i still have it, so thats a good start. some pretty cool transition effects.

    In a Android mag I bought it suggests Helix launcher is #1!

    But I'm happy with Launcher Pro :p

    i get told helix launcher isnt compatible, maybe its not 2.3.7 ready yet? has anyone used spb, i found a free version (just for trial) as you wouldnt get updates. but after a message saying it couldnt find my purchase on the market, it was very laggy. is that cuz it was trying to close down or because the defy cant run it properly?

    There's a magazine about all things Android? Is that a real magazine made of paper?

    I use GoLauncher. It seems like the best, or ADW if you want more themes. GoLauncher is extremely customisable. But if you want something really good, CyanogenMod is amazing, and really customisable.

    Yes, I've noticed a trend in recent years where you could buy comprehensive guides in magazine format for all things tech, from blackberry through to netbooks... buyers guides, beginners guides, complete app directories... I think they come out quarterly & are bigger, more expensive than normal mags. Usually sold here at places like WH Smith in railway stations.

    :D Ofcourse you can browse the web but the magazines make a good starter point without wasting your battery!
