    anyone got icons for that circle launcher? I would like one with a simple tiny translucent "dot" to represent the icon. IE almost invisible. but still the same "touchable" area.

    Ohhh my TP2 did NOT like Go Launcher :)

    got stuck and eventually crashed. and they lie. their screenshots show NO notification bat at the top (desired) yet its their when I install. so I think they are screen capping WITHOUT the notification bar in the screen capture. Grrrr

    I don't know about Go Launcher but with LP+ you have to go into the settings menu to turn off the notification bar

    You can hide the notification bar by going into Operation settings in Preferences.

    I do not see that. There is only screen rotation and key gestures (home key action glide up and glide down) nothing about notification.

    also I don't want the notification CONTENT gone just the bar itself :)

    Select glide up or glide down and it gives you an option to hide the notification bar. I'm not sure if you can do that, maybe with a rom.

    that does not hide the notification. it only allows you to "do" the same thing as "grabbing" the notification bar and sliding it down (which is actually nice since for some reason its VERY hard to actually do that on my phone) this lets me slide down anywhere on the screen and invoke this but the notification bar itself remains.

    AHHHH I found it. for this program its called a STATUS bar and the "slide out" portion it called a Notification.

    ok. now it makes sense. I am hoping it auto appears when there "is" a notification to be had :) but its enough to show that the wallpaper does in fact go all the way to the top which is cool.

    I'm not sure if it auto appears. You can also hold down on one of the dock icons and "change gesture response" to do the same thing.
