    I've been using LauncherPro for a while but just tried Go Launcher and REALLY like it and the many themes, etc. available for it. Has anyone here used it for an extended period of time? If so, I'd like to read your thoughts on it...

    I don't use their launcher, but I use their Dialer and SMS programs.

    I have been using it for a couple of months and love it. The developers are very responsive and update often. You should give a try. If you don't like it, just dump it :)

    I'm trying out Go Launcher now. I had Launcher Pro before & like it better. I feel likebit has a few more options than Go..

    It's definitely close. Both are great and I'm glad the Android platform gives us a choice (cough, cough I'm looking at you, iOS).

    I have been using GO products for a while and I love them. The developers are always listening and fixing with updates frequently. I suggestions you try it for a while and if you Don't like it you can always uninstall. but I believe you'll like it.

    I've been a fan of Go, although I don't use it now, because I'm on the new Gingerbreat Motoblur on the DX. The Go widgets are fantastic. I recommend it highly. Oh yes. The screen transitions are amazing. It's quick and clean.

    The only bad thing about Go products is that they're updated too frequently (which I guess is also a good thing). Every update forces me to reset them as the defaults.

    The problem I'm having on go launcher is that the calendar widget does't report appointments in the right date order. Weird.

    Go SMS allows me to blink the front led blue for when I have a message waiting. Is there anyway to do this with the dialer too so it blinks on a missed call?

    I just downloaded Go Launcher last night and I looooooooove it. I been had Go Sms and I love that too. I don't like Go Dialer or Contacts (whatever the name of that is) because when I opened a contact, I couldn't see their Twitter or Facebook information like I could in the regular dialer. Did I forget to d something? Samsung Epic 4g.
