    Hey guys I was just wondering what your favourite launcher is for the SGSII? Before this handset I had LauncherPro and loved it, but seeing as I've got a new phone I wanted to change things up a bit. Any suggestions?

    I use go launcher and its great. So much better than stock.
    But is there anyone on here who had used 2 our more of these 3rd party launchers who can compare to give us a better idea as to which is best?

    I used launcher pro for a few days. I can't really be too specific why but it just didn't seem to be as good as go launcher. Maybe its because I'm a bit of a cheapskate and didn't pay for the plus version. That's probably the best reason for having go launcher as to get all the features of allot of other launcher you need to pay but the full version of GL is free.

    I shouldn't really say this but I like the touchWiz changes to the app drawer. I love having pages, where I can group apps in to different categories. I much prefer having the home screen uncluttered as possible, leaving just a couple of frequently used apps there.

    If only there were a launcher that had an identical app drawer to the touchWiz, I would use one.

    I used launcher pro for a few days, it was ok but go launcher is mu h better imo. Ive also tried QQ launcher from the market which is lacking. Im now using MIUI QQlauncher with Signa icon set, which i downloaded from xda forums. Its a bit basic, but looks gorgeous, and is very iPhone like
