    Alright, well I got tired of the endless redraws that LP was giving me so I went with ADW. So far I really like this launcher, but I had a few questions about it.

    I set up the bottom tray with my set of icons that I wanted. Now for some reason that has went away. I am curious where it went. It went away once, and then I went into the app section and then back onto the main screen and it just automatically showed up. Now even doing that will not get it to show back up.

    I went into ADW settings and set it to 5 icons on the dock. Going to see if that will keep it.

    ok, nevermind the post. Sorry about it, I just figured out that I can swipe the bottom dock and it placed the one that I originally placed on there. I also figured out that If I swipe it again it goes back to the other one...that is pretty cool, did not know about that.

    ive been trying to figure out what was causing this for weeks. the only way i could figure out how to fix it was by going into the settings and force stopping adw. glad to see this is a feature and not a bug in the program

    Come back to LP after he finishes his re-write. It will single-handedly set itself apart from all other launchers because it will not be hindered by the memory restriction Android imposes on launchers.

    I was planning on doing that...Really love the LP look, feel, redraws are horrible on it though...ADW has the same redraws, just not as often and doesnt take as long to come back to normal

    I love ADW. I especially love that hidden bar at the bottom since I can drop as many shortcuts as I want onto it and never have to use the app drawer for any of my favorite apps.

    been using ADW-EX for a little bit and I like it, used to be a LP+ user, but wanted to try something different... once Fede updates I'll bounce back and check it out
