    I gotta go with the OP the new ADW after all the updates they did is real nice and has some sweet themes. If it was this nice and configurable from the get go I would have stayed with it along time ago. I also agree that Touchwiz has grown on me, its definitely my backup, just simple and clean, the sense look is just gettin old.

    I would still be running the stock TW 3.0 launcher if the app drawer was sorted alphabetically. I'm too lazy to constantly re-order my drawer when I install new apps so I went with ADW instead.

    If I remember correctly you can hit the menu button and tell it to sort alphabetically.

    I agree with Zeam.....
    LauncherPro lagged and I got several force closed
    Go Launcher wasn't too bad but had stuff that I did not use and was about three times the size of Zeam

    1 "sucks" is subjective and personally i think lp is fine when you mess around with the settings and don't have multiple launchers
    2 different phones will give you different experiences with.different launchers....since you have an evo you may want to compare with fellow evo users

    +1 on that I run lp with no other launchers and have 0 problems with it. I think a big problem with ppl that are having problems with lp is they are running tw under it. Not realizing that tw and lp don't play well together.
     
  10. I've had a go with all three on my Galaxy S and ended up sticking with Launcher Pro :)

    I liked the idea of ADW with all it's themes, but other than that it didn't offer anough customisation for me. It was just too plain and I soon got bored of it.

    Touchwiz is great, I love the iPhone style icons, yet the app drawer never sorting it's self into alphabetical order drove me mad.

    Launcher Pro gives me a 3D Gingerbread style app drawer, 15 fully customizable dock icons (in 3 docks) and the perfect widgets for my home screen set up (My favourite two being; People - photos of my favourite contacts which I can just click to call or text them and Friends - Twitter and Facebook in one scrollable widget, I never even have to open the apps most of the time!)

    I am one of those who use whatever the phone comes with. Ive had my fascinate almost a month now. I am coming from almost 7 years on a blackberry. This is very different, very customizable. What do the launchers do exactly? I just downloaded ADW launcher. I used to know my bb in and out.... now I feel like I'm starting over and its frustrating. I was to be able to use my phone to its fullest capacity.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    A launcher is basically a program that comprises your home screens and app drawer and the user interface that goes with them. Touchwiz is the one that comes with the phone.

    After using ADW, Launcher Pro, Go Launcher, Touchwiz, and Zeam, I'm sticking with Zeam. I use live wallpapers and out of all of them Zeam runs the smoothest with live wallpaper.

    After finding out what a launcher was...LOL... I downloaded ADW and launcher pro..... I like them both, they each have their own features. I like on both how when you hold the phone horizontally the home screen rotates too. I had that on my BB storm! For now I will you launcher pro, I really like how I can customize more things!

    Under Applications > Manage applications. Find the launcher you are currently using (LPP, ADW, etc.) and clear defaults. The next time you hit the Home soft key, you will be asked to select a launcher.

    yeah i think that (at least until the lpp rewrite) adw ex is a winner. its quick, feature rich, and not as big a resource hog...so its a good compromise :)

    I don't have LPP on my SF....how will we know when the rewrite occurs? I would be interesting to try it too....LP caused my SF to lag and force close (probobly because I ran it over/with TouchWiz because I'm not rooted

    I flashed Jt's superclean v0.9 rom and it came with TW and ADW. Can I just update ADW to ADW EX somehow? Is it as simple as dl the ADW ex and then unistalling the other one?
