    Bought a Samsung i9000 recently, so I want to search for a launcher. Can anyone give me some advices?
    Emm.....I hope the launcher is Funny and Beautiful, a 3D launcher will be the best choice. If it is free, that's so good.;)

    If you like live wallpapers, SBC Shell can't support them.

    Do you mean dxtop launcher by dxhome? I tried to use dxtop and like it, but when the screen lock activates the phone freezes.

    Edit: Never mind i just saw that dxtop and dxhome are different launchers

    You don't have to decide right away you can try most of the launchers, and if you don't like them just unistall. SPB also has a trial so you can try it out.

    I like ADW. I don't think it's resource intensive, and you can find themes for it in the Market

    I tried almost all launchers out there, and all have some pros and some cons, but i always go back to Go Launcher EX, in my opinion it is becomming the best option out there. The Go Team is working hard to iton out all the bugs and to incorporate most of the requests from the users.

    Top of the list are still Go Launcher EX, Launcher Pro + and ADW Launcher, all other have too many bugs, lack of customization or lack of features, or worst the combination of all this.

    Really I don't think they do.

    SPB is a great launcher but I would say you need a decent phone to run it.

    OP your phone will run SPB very well. It is snappy on my phone. They are still working on getting LWP support. Edit just tried LWP and they work. It is indeed beautiful ... not sure about funny tho

    Thank you claus1953, spb's video is so attacttive for me, tho I have not found a trial version. But the spb will spent me over 10 bucks,out of my budget. It's a difficult decision! :(

    My favorites are Launcher Pro + and Go Launcher, but Go edges it for me because I prefer its app drawer and the fact that its Facebook, Calendar and People widgets are free. I was a long time Launcher Pro user though and its still an excellent launcher with a great dev.
