Launcher Pro as an alternative to Friend Stream?General

    Hey there everyone,

    I know this must sound rather odd, but here's the situation: Occasionally, Friend Stream has these moments where it just doesn't feel like doing its hourly updates anymore. Then I have to remove Friend Stream, the Facebook account patched into it and reset them. That's gotten way too bothersome as I have probably done it every day for the past ten days. So I've looked into alternatives.

    And Launcher Pro keeps popping up and it apparently has that really sweet Friend Stream like widget thing. In addition to that, it's apparently running a lot faster than the standard thing that comes with the phone. I'm all for faster and nice looking stuff. But I've never fidgeted around with the phone other than adding apps and remove them again. So naturally, I have a couple questions as I don't want to completely break my phone and thus, I turn to you for help.

    1. Will my settings continue to exist? Like my "Favourite Contacts"-screen. Or is there an alternative that does about the same? I would prefer it to call a person by tapping on their picture once. Or send a message to them.
    2. If I end up not liking Launcher Pro, can I remove it and the phone defaults back to the standard stuff I have now? Or do I need to create a backup? If so, how do I create a backup?
    3. Does Launcher Pro work with Beautiful Widgets?
    4. Is the Launcher Pro+ worth getting?
    Thank you so much for helping me out here!

    1. You cannot use sense widgets with LauncherPro, LauncherPro+ has a people widget where you just press the contacts pic and you get the option to call, message or whatever

    2. If you remove LauncherPro your phone will revert back to using sense as it doesnt get removed from the phone

    3. Yes

    4. Yes

    Alright! Thanks for the quick information. But does Launcher Pro have something like Friendstream and the favourite contacts thing? Because those I probably use the most.

    LauncherPro+ has both of those, People widget for pressing contact pic and then choosing what do and Friends widget which is the same as friendstream.

    Okay, if I had known that Launcher Pro was so amazing, I'd have gotten it way earlier. Thank you so much!
