    What does Launcher Pro actually bring to the party that Launcher doesn't already do?

    Resize widgets, sense like widgets, swipe motions, hide status bar, custom home screen rows, custom home screen columns..

    Ah, ok. Thing that is mystifying me is that - unless I've missed something - Launcher has 5 homescreens whereas Pro has only three. Isn't this a bit of a step backwards?

    Launcher pro, you can choose anything between 1 and 7 home screens.

    Also was going to mention 3d app drawer but unsure if launcher has that

    Hmmm... Yeah, on the 1-7 screen issue, I thought I'd heard that but couldn't find where to change the settings, hence my original post.

    3D drawer: Yup, launcher has that too. Kinda a rotating cube...

    And Grimsby was founded by a dane :D

    Anyway, I have Launcher and can hide the statusbar, can customize home screen rows and columns. But reseizing and the "sense-like" widgets I dont have. Anyway, I'm going to go pro now.

    Jeez! Am I the only Yank in here? This is like the 5th thread I've read where I feel like I need to bring a favorite rugby jersey and order a stout or at least a Bass. :)
    hehehehehe

    LPP is nice.. I'm also waiting on Slick UI if they ever get it done. Looks really slick for us "unrooted" newbs.

    There's no such thing as a rugby jersey ;)

    And in answer to your first question, almost :)

    I am using Laucher Pro Plus and I am happy with it. Only when you move to something else do you realise how good it was and there are some things I miss from Sense. I might get them on LPP but haven't found them yet, like the news/weather widget.
