    good work. Though I hate ss launcher! :p

    I tried it and it just wasn't for me.

    I'm a launcher junkie and have tried as many as I can find and my top 5 are....

    TSF shell
    GO launcher
    ADW Launcher
    SPB Shell
    Nemus Launcher

    But launcher pro, Regina 3d, and FTL are great to. I just can't leave TSF now. It's so expensive, but for me it has been worth it. I'll post my latest config later if i remember.

    Lol. I like the SS so far thank you very much! :eviltongue:. LPP is alright, and I think GO uses up too much battery compared to the others. I've been playing SSkin and like that one also, but customization seems minimal at best. Lightning seems promising too.

    I used lighting for a day. Its fun. Very different. It's very fast and very different. I ended up uninstalling though just because I like the more traditional launchers a lot more.

    Go is good, but they do WAY too many updates to all of their apps (Go SMS updates almost daily, with little benefit).

    When we get 4.0, I'll go back to Nova Prime. I ran it on my D2G with 4.0 and it was amazing... it has all the look and feel of 4.0's Trebuchet, but it's not limited like Treb is. Apex looks similar, but I like Nova better.

    I've been using go for a long time and at times they do push updates a lot but it's by no means daily. I've had maybe 3 updates in go sms in the past month. They have actually slowed down on updates a bit. I like getting updates though. I check the market a lot just to see if I have any because sometimes something really awesome has been added to an app. I wish certain apps updated more. I don't like it when a dev doesn't release an update because it makes me think they have stopped developing it. Like SPB shell, and ADW launcher, and Launcher pro. It's Been since january since SPB has had an update, it's been since december since ADW has, and since may of last year since launcher pro has! It's just not right! I would rather have an update every other day than once every few months or so. I always notice things in apps that could be improved, or changed, or added.

    It's nice. But still has a long way to go. Doesn't have crap for settings. But it's highly configurable from the UI itself. It definitely needs more in the options category. But it's been my default for a couple weeks now and I don't plan on switching. I really like the launch bar to the left. and it never lags. It's always super smooth and fluid. And it has some neat features others don't. Like one feature where after you install an app from the market when you go to the app drawer to find it the app icon is on fire, which makes it easy to find.

    The widgets for it suck though. And it has these stupid props you can place on your homescreen that hang there or float around by a string. But it only has 3 of them. A cloud, a ghost, and a pumpkin. It's kind of weird and silly in my opinion.

    I do think it's going to grow into something amazing though. It's already good enough to have become my default. And I have around 10 launchers installed. I used to switch between them a lot but since I started using tsf I haven't been using the others.

    I was being a bit facetious but there have been instances where go sms and go Launcher have updated daily and there's really no need for that Imo.

    that is one thing i hated about Go, was all the updates. Especially updates for stuff i hadnt even downloaded.

    MrB206 Well-Known Member

    Ditto. I'd look at what was updated and couldn't figure out why they couldn't wait to combine with other changes. I've been told there are various teams with Go and they race to beat each other at updates and improvements.

    i use eclipse and when you hold down the power button to get the pop up reboot menu it also has a screenshot option. So that's how I do it

    awesomeness! anyway to get it to save other then a .png?
  18. MrB206

    MrB206 Well-Known Member

    Not with the stock method I posted. You'd have to get a screenshot app for that.

    Here was mine. My wife liked it so I loaded it for her and I have a different one. I prefer a clean home page flick to the left for Apps I use a lot.

    Not that I'm aware of. You could use an app to convert the image to gif or jpg...
