When you say delete, do you mean just drag them into the trash bin?
If I recall, Go now has backups as of the latest update.
I bought LPP within a day of getting my X (thanks to this site) and just recently decided to roam around and check out the alternatives. I like both Go and ADW EX, but each has some things that lack from the other.
With Go, I like the App Drawer quite a bit - three function tabs (all apps, recent apps, running apps), folder creation, sorting options) - but miss the transitions and stability of ADW EX. I also notice that Go occasionally has to reload itself and I have to wait while it puts everything back in place. Go's page control (add/remove page, go to page) is amazing and needs to be the standard other apps build on.
ADW's transitions are beautiful and I love the endless App Tray. The widget size controls are very well done and useful. The App Drawer lets you create secondary and tertiary app spaces, but you always start at the original. What I'd love to see with ADW EX (besides Go Launcher's page addition/move system) are per-icon tray gestures. In LPP and Go I would swipe up from my phone to launch Vlingo Dialer, up from my browser to open my bookmarks, etc; that's not possible on ADW EX.
I can't wait to see what LPP 2 brings to the table when it is released. "The Launcher Wars" are going to be a great time for all and I can't wait to see what comes next.
I use LPP and also have ADW, installed by Apex. I decided try ADW (via Home Switcher) and it behaved politely, but once I tried Go, I couldn't go back to LPP. Every time I switched back and rebooted to unload it, it kept coming back so I uninstalled it. It'll be a cold day before I try it again. (It's -2
IMHO, CalenGoo is a great calendar to challenge any ROM's stock offering. The widgets could use some polish, but they're solid & inherently customizable. I personally use CalenGoo + Smooth Calendar (for the widget).
As others have mentioned, as soon as I got my DX, I got LPP. After the first Gingerbread update, LPP constantly force closed on me multiple times a day. After finally having enough, and waiting over 7 months for a rewrite that never came, I went with GoLauncher. Love it. Lots of transitions, cool app drawer, screen management, etc. As others said, seriously missed the LPP widgets... Until, that is, I found Android Pro Widgets. Aside from their currently limited theme selection, they are almost identical to LPP's widgets. They actually have MORE customization than LPP! GoLauncher is fee, APW is $2, so it's basically like buying another launcher. I can't be happier!
I can't find Android Pro Widgets in the market.
Found it on appbrain
Jorte is also a nice calender app that I have been using.
I used LPP for a year and I convinced many others to install it. I have recently switch to Go and I actually like it better.
Ever since switching to Go, I have not gone back. It simply.............works.
i havent had any issues with ADW EX course i bought it, no reason for me to never use it
As a long time user of ADW and Launcher Pro, Go Launcher EX has really impressed me. I love the Sphere 3D app drawer setting. Everyone I show it too ends up installing it. Black Glass theme is killer.
I've seen the Sphere, but can't seem to enable it on my phone. How does one do it?
From the home screen, menu, preferences, effect settings, icon effect.
I want the sphere as well, but this option is greyed out for me. It's set to Binary Star, and I can't change it. Any ideas?
FYI, I changed some of the wording of this thread (added DX) so we could keep the thread here instead of moving it to Apps.)
Interesting, going to try this.
Ive been a LPP user for over a year. Recently I felt like a change so I bought ADW and gave it an honest try. Unless I'm missing some critical settings, it is a lot less smooth than LPP. That was quite a surprise because so many people said they were about the same.
I'm afraid LPP has nearly been abandoned. Fede was supposed to completely rewrite LPP but that's been going on for almost a year with no visible results. When I found he was writing a media player I knew LPP was "as is" with no rewrite. It still works fine so I shouldn't be complaining.
I think I'll give Go a spin and see how that compares.
Do you have the Go Launcher EX latest version which is 2.52. Should work.
Same with me. Greyed out for me too. Can't change it.
Do you have the Go Launcher EX latest version which is 2.52?.
Double Yep. Very odd.
Maybe backup Go launcher, uninstall and reinstall.
Try this first.
