    I mean, seriously. If ever there was an app that didn't need to be in beta any longer (0.4.4? it's not even half of a whole version?), it's this. Setting the number of home screens and flying app drawers and docks are great, but there are a few little features that are ABSOLUTELY stellar:

    Their needs to be the ability to use the htc widgets. Stability issues - got a couple of force closes. Ability to view apps in list form.

    Ah, good point about the HTC widgets. I don't use them so I don't miss them, but I know many people do. Is it even possible?

    What are the main differences from ADW? Been using that and I cant really complain at all.

    i think it's great, but one thing that really bugs me that's not present in adw or any other home replacement i've tried is a color depth issue when you swipe between screens on the home. it is easily evidenced when using black-backgrounded widgets. when a screen is in focus and no fingers are touching the screen, everything looks just fine. however, do a half-scroll (and hold finger on screen) and you'll see a definite difference being that banding of the gradient shifts is now obvious and pronounced on on the widgets. not a dealbreaker, but it's really annoying because no other home app does this (home++ did it way back when but i haven't checked it out in a minute). if the dev would fix that, it'd most likely replace Sense for good.

    if that's the only issue that i have with it, that's definitely a great thing. i just happen to notice stuff like that and it bugs me, even if it's not major at all. i still use it occasionally, as i'm not anal like that. :)

    I don't really know as I have only read about ADW and it gets great reviews. I just like LP because it's firstly blazing fast which adds to the already fast Inc and secondly because it's simple no bells and whistles, and clean. Some use both you can try both to see what you like better ;)

    Probably some box to check to turn off portrait mode and only have the phone run in landscape.

    Didnt think of that. Makes sense though.





    The 5 rows thing is pretty cool but too bad they overlap in landscape mode or else I would have used it. Other than that I love launcher pro. Every release it gets better and better

    I love it. Choose to turn off landscape mode and just go for the 5 rows. The only thing that I could see to make it better, which I don't know if it can be done with just UI, is I wish you could rotate to landscape mode in either direction. Leftys need love too...

    Mine showed up, try unistalling it and reinstalling it.. That might do the trick.


    Anyone find a good bookmarks widget replacement for the HTC one?!

    Meh. Tried both it and ADW. Didn't like either one. SenseUI works just fine for my needs. I don't want/need tons of icons on my screens - I prefer widgets where possible. I found it wasn't any more convenient for me to have things on a dock either. Plus, I can feel a noticeable slow-down when using these apps.

    I tried ADW launcher and didn't really like it. I haven't messed around with launcher pro lots since I just installed it but its looks awesome! I love the ability to keep those 5 icons at the bottom for messaging and phone, etc.

    I love LauncherPro tried to go back to Sense and couldn't stand it . The only thing I really need is a Mobile Network Toggle that actually works. I have tried a ton of them and none of them do anything. The mobile Network sense toggle is fantastic but not enough for me to use sense. Launcher Pro all the way

    I use the weather and toggle widget to look like the stock HTC clock and just turn off the backround around the numbers and it looks great.

    BTW why can't one of these add (either LauncherPro or ADW) the ability to chage the damn middle dock button? I don't want it stuck on the app draw (that's worthless when you have all your apps already on 7 screens) I want to have five choices down below instead of 4.

    So am I. I can not believe with all the apps in the app market that there is not one good bookmark app or widget.

    I mean how hard is that to come up with?
