    Hello All,

    Please tell me how can I change the View of Menu icons.
    I cannot find options to drag it from right to left.
    It was from bottom to top by default.
    But I saw a video on YouTube in which the user is doing it from right to left.
    And also I saw him doing zoom-in in homescreen which will result in 5 screens. How can I do that?

    Please suggest
    Thanks in advance...

    Out of all launcher i have used, here are the pros and cons(according to me.. google it out if u need accurate info) for the newbies
    Some of the most popular launchers out there :

    LauncherPro
    Pros:
    My personal favourite..
    Really snappy UI
    Replaceable Docks
    3D Drawer
    Supports Icon packs
    Cons:
    No background/transparent background for app drawer
    No horizontal paginated drawer (iphone style)

    ADW Launcher
    I used to like this at first..
    Pros:
    Best animations
    Nice UI
    Supports Icon packs
    3D Drawer as well as horizontal paginated of different types
    Cons:
    Takes Slightly more memory
    Cannot change app drawer background but you can set a custom color

    SPB Shell 3D
    I havent tried this, so cant say how good it is..
    Pros
    Fancy looking UI
    Animations look good
    ...
    Cons:
    Takes the largest amount of memory of all app launchers
    ...

    Zeam:
    Pros:
    Really lightweight, and small
    Cons:
    Really lightweight and small (not many features)

    Go launcher:
    Pros:
    All features of ADW launcher +
    Change app drawer background
    Awesome themes
    Cons:
    Laggy :/


    Other launchers worth mentioning :
    Gingerbread launcher-ripped straight from gingerbread
    Balancer- It is there in Leandros.. check it out

    I did a review a while back on Launchers . If you want to know how they looked :) .At that time I could test only 16 out of many Launchers I have used .
    Frankly it is dependent on your choice .I change Launchers Like I change my ROMs i.e twice everyday .lol .
    LPP and Zeam are the snappiest Launchers
    DXHome and GoLauncher are one the most beautiful ones .

    War of Launchers : Part I All about Samsung Galaxy 551 and more

    Hi All,
    I love GoLauncher. But it lags alot and also occupies more memory. Is there any other launcher which is as beautiful as GoLauncher but occupies less memory.......?

    go launcher is smooth initially but it starts lagging later. Try launcher pro with sense theme pack. It transforms the phone completely in to a new look and dosent lag too. Currently im on leandros using balancer. So far good. no lags with 48 apps installed. its light on the system. But reloads itself if some heavy apps are running.:p:p
