    I'm liking everything so far.
    Is there an option to make the apps in the drawer display alphabetically?

    all apps/recent use/running is such a great feature. even though its somewhat built into android (long press home, etc) i'm not sure why its not built into other launchers as well.

    I use LP pro currently and have a hard time switching because I'm dependent on the widgets (fb/twitter/people)

    Got widget locker enabling ok but when pressing home button it is disabling the lock screen which it shouldn't. Checking with dev.

    I'm not not sure what advantage is for any launcher app with 2.2 ?
    Will look at app tray editing to see if that is improvement
    Cheers

    Wow, I gave this a go and I am loving it so far. It seems to be very similar to ADW/LauncherPro (More like Launcher Pro) but it seems more polished.

    Please change so it doesn't automatically load at startup. I installed it and when I rebooted, it automatically started. Hitting the home button with LP set as default took me back to LP but I prefer to make the choice of what will startup when I reboot.

    I uninstalled but will look at it again if this is changed. Thanks.

    Will keep an eye on it, right now not enough there to switch from LP+. Also when you hit the menu button on the home screen it says "Setting", should be "Settings".

    Next revision needs the app drawer alphabetized, app drawer search-able, and resize-able widgets. We're on to a winner here, just needs a little more polish. High praise to the developer, keep up the good work. I'm still tripping out on the nearly unlimited homescreens. Not that I'll ever use that many but, hey!, at least they are available if I need 'em. :)

    If there's an adequate replacement for Launcherpro's Facebook, People and Bookmark widgets, I might consider trying this.

    Needs ability to resize widgets like LauncherPro Plus for me....:) otherwise, great launcher. Has some features that I wished LauncherPro had such as the horizontal apps drawer.

    nice launcher, slicker than most of the others. Need to be able to sort the app drawer and have the option to show the app drawer tabs if you want. Otherwise well done

    I just found this app today. I have to say it is really nice so far. Never actually leave Sense just because of my widgets but, I will play around with it for a few days. But I do recommend it.

    Love the launcher. The only problem i seem to be finding is the volume buttons on my Orange San Fran (ZTE Blade) don't control the volume of my music unless the music app is opened. If i play music from a widget they do nothing at all also if i press the volume buttons while no music is playing i get a beep.


    Scrap that, it seems to have started working now.

    By far a launcher with huge possibility. Great stuff offered like adequate and launcher pro, but it also includes a flavor of the MIUI rom. Awesome.
