    I'd just like to add my 2 cents in, this is probably old, but I just discovered it. And I think it is amazing

    launcher pro is pretty awesome, you get 7 home screens, the htc all-in-one view of all the screens, the programmable keys on the bottom, the 2.2 drawer, it's all good. It makes things a bit sexy while we wait for froyo.

    Home switcher is a necessity since it makes it easy to switch between the regular home and launcher pro.

    The only thing I noticed was that the battery life was shorter and the Droid would get hot just sitting in the pocket. And I don't know how to reaccess the features/settings, does anybody know how to do it? I turned off the bouncy option when flipping between home screens and turned off the performance boost- that seemed to improve battery life.

    To access the settings of Launcher Pro, on your home screen, press the menu softkey --> Preferences

    Also, it is not recommended to switch between the two - it was recommended by the dev of Helix or by the dev of LP to empty your default Home screen of all icons and widgets if you're using their alternative - and I agree.

    Pick on and use it.

    +1 on removing all widgets and icons from your unused home apps, and launchers.

    With the 15 scrollable dock icons/shotcuts in LP, do you really need 7 screens? ;)

    I have my droid on 3 screens, and i don't even fill up half of each screen. I do use Folder Organizer's folders to keep clutter to a minimum though. Folder Organizer's folders can even be set as the dock icons. :)

    1) This is the Motorola DROID forum. 2) Read my post above. 3) The developer has a good set of FAQs on his site.
