    i've read so many good things about launcher pro, i decided to give it a try but i've got a couple of questions...

    - I'm supposed to delete all of my widgets from my stock home screens to avoid running multiple copies of the same widgets and killing the battery, right? No problem - I'll remove battery widgets and beautiful home and stuff that is "active" but what about the beautiful widgets that just toggle your bluetooth, wifi, airplane mode? (I assume I can leave those since they're just "toggles" but, they're technically installed as "widgets"...?)

    - Is there an easy way to switch back and forth from launcher pro to the stock home launcher? Right now I just hit the "home" soft key below the screen and it asks if I'd like to use "stock launcher" or "launcher pro" but I'd like to set it so that button actually takes me to my home screen. (I'll probably do a lot of switching back and forth while I'm testing this thing out.)

    Thanks all! So far this thing seems pretty badass :)

    I would remove all your widgets from a launcher you arent using because they may affect performance and battery life.

    Easiest way to switch is download an app called home switcher

    Word. I'll take 'em all out.



    I saw that thread. I'm all for sending a couple bucks to a great dev and this guy CLEARLY put his time into this thing (and the people widget looks kinda neat). If I decide to keep this launcher when I'm done toying with it, I'll update to plus.

    Thanks for the help guys!

    No problem! I'm looking forward to some of the other widgets and features exclusive to plus users.
