    Just curious, which launcher do you prefer?

    And which themes you use with them?

    If "Other" do share. I just cannot settle on one theme/launcher as they're all so customisable and I can do so much. I tend to flick between ADW.Launcher with the "Flux" theme and Go Launcher Ex with the "Transparent Space" theme.

    But generally I favour the ADW.Launcher option.

    i used to use LP but i found the persistent nagging a reason not to buy the plus version as i thought the approach was too cowboy.
    When go launcher came out it was a bit of a lead weight and needed some work but i stuck with it.
    Ive used ADW for years before on other phones but for some reason i just find it laggy, dated and a little lacklustre.

    so yeah, i like GO as its constantly up to date. they only want money for themes rather than features, its smooth to run. has premium features for free and plugs into their other many free products.

    Obviously was on Sense originally, and ran happily with that for >1 year. Then rooted and flashed CM7, which ship swith ADW. I lived with that but never grew particularly fond of it (although it does have some useful features). Recently tried out Go Launcher (still with CM7), and am totally won over with it. Very smooth, looks good with the theme I use (D.SUGER Theme), nicely customisable. Could maybe benefit from some of the desktop icon context menu items that ADW has.

    Used go from when it first appeared in market. Has been rock solid for me, so never felt a need to change.

    Hey Fishy, nice looking setup. What's the clock widget you're using? Seems like a keeper!

    The clock is from Beautiful Widgets, and was being given away free on getjar.com a few weeks ago :)

    I used LPP for ages. After a while I got fed up of the screen transitions and how they lagged. Tried Go and these transitions were there, worked with no lag and were even better. Never looked back, even though I paid for LPP (Twice, for the missus too)

    Been through most of them at one time or other, but tend to drift back to Sense - mostly for the widgets. I know there are plenty of replacements on the Market, but there always seems to be a niggle or two.

    Was on Insertcoin, which allows you to use Sense skins so was able to have a skin with a straight bar at the bottom rather than the curve which looks much better. Currently testing RevolutioN, but having trouble getting skins to work so may switch back.

    Do like the Go launcher though. I've got a cheap Chinese

    Launcher Pro Plus! Currently in the process of compiling a 5-Home screen theme using a black background created by AF very on EYEBEAM the Great!.. I am going to use glossy black button icon and other variants of black, silver or grey where applicable.

    Will post here and on EYEBEAM'S Folder as soon as I am done...

    Go for me. Tried pretty much all the others, but nothing beats Go.

    Just gone back to Go.

    I do believe its superior but I just can't find the right theme. I am so picky but ADW.Launcher and Flux theme is perfect for me. Why can't this be available on Go?

    Tried adw, go, zeam, lpp.... but use
    AOSP launcher2. Does everything I want, really don't see the need for anything else.

    ....wow.... LPP only 15% so far?.. I would have expected higher...if not first!

    because they have tried to hard to get money, people will always go for a free alternative especially if the free alternative performs better

    For the record i actually paid for LPP and still prefer to use Go. I tend to try and keep using the paid apps I have bought but go is so much better for me than LPP. I'm gutted I hadn't tried it before.

    I like HTC Sense. Is it worth going through the trouble of upgrading to Gingerbread developer edition just to preserve my HTC Sense?

    to preserve sense as opposed to what?
