    LauncherPro - da best home replacing app out there!
    Even if its Beta it works great, just cant wait for full version. Thank you very much Federico Carnales!

    Ok, now review!

    Version: 0.5.1
    Price: FREE
    Dev: Federico Carnales

    According to developer:

    • Super-smooth scrolling
      Animated screen previews (like Expose or HTC Sence)
      Up to 7 home screens
      App drawer with fly-in effect and smooth scrolling
      Shortcut dock

    Insight preview.
    The first thing you notice, is that you add HTC widgets, but that's ok. There are ton's of other widgets in Market that can easily replace them.
    Here is how your home screen gonna look like

    Hmmmm, landscape mode, I like that. Something new to HTC Sense users, ha?
    Lots of stuff customizeable here. You can choose one of 4 dock backgrounds.
    And PLUS, you have option to leave the default application icon or use the LauncherPro icon.

    You can also choose to hide the notification bar, the home button on app drawet to exit it. As well as try Elastic scrolling.

    Aaand here comes the application drawer with fly-in effect. This is really something cool. As HTC Hero owner, I could only dream about it, untill I met LauncherPro. It is very smooth both in landscape and protrait modes. Sorry, cannot demonstrate you that, as I dont own a camera.

    Also some experimental stuff is available, like 3D drawer.
    What I like the most, is that developer (Federico Carnales) updates his app often. Adding really cool stuff. Hope to see the second revolution in home replacing application category. As first was the birth of LauncherPro.

    Verdict
    Apps like this make Android a super customizeable platform. Feeiling that for a long time it's not gonna have some good rivals.

    The Advanced Options button also adds seveal features including the ability to add a 5th row of icons on the homescreen.
