Anyone using a third party launcher?

    I gave ADW EX a shot for a bit (since I use it on my tablet sometimes and I bought it for 10 cents the other day), but have come back to stock for now.

    ADW was surprisingly smoother than I expected it to be. Anyone else using third party launchers or is everyone still with the stock launcher?

    Haven't bothered. Tried golauncher for fun since it restored from my X but it lagged to all hell. Stock launcher runs great. I'll give up some additional interfaces for a lag free experience (until you use LWP)

    Go to the XDA forums and download Nova Launcher. It is awesome. Basically is stock launcher, but without search bar at top, and lets you use the space where it was unlike simply removing it from the settings menu in stock launcher

    I'm using NOVA. Made directly from ICS code, only for ICS phones. This is not a skinned version of LauncherPro, ADW, GoLauncher, etc. Loving my 6x5 homescreen (stock 5x4 is ridiculous on a screen this large), long press to add widgets, remove search bar (and use the space), and much more.

    [APP] Nova Launcher Beta (ICS based) - xda-developers

    if you like the look of the stock launcher, this does not change it. it simply adds functionality.

    I'm using launcher pro. I like the scrolling dock, I hate having app icons on my screen.

    Me too. DO NOT add the LPP Calendar widget. It will crash LPP and you will have to clear data and set it all up again. Made that mistake.... Once.

    I just cant live without the scrolling FB and Twitter widgets. I can't find anything else suitable.

    Stopped using LPP when the dev stopped supporting it.

    I did that yesterday. When I added the android calendar widget, LPP would automatically switch to that screen when I turned the phone to landscape.

    I use android pro widgets now, the calendar is fine and LPP doesn't switch to it.

    I too use Android Pro Widgets- good for consistency between screens. I currently use Facebook, Calendar, and Bookmark widgets. The paid version allows a lot of customization of themes!
