    LauncherPro does a lot of great things, but there are a couple that it missed the boat on.

    -Limited customizability with app shortcuts in Dock (should be drag and drop!)
    -No ability to use skins, themes, etc
    -App drawer is a little awkward at times
    -3D drawer only works in Portrait (still pretty cool though)
    -Similar to Helix launcher (which I DO like)

    -Ability to customize far more than most Launchers/Homes
    --App drawer speed, size, and appearance customizations (including 3D, nexus one 2.1 style!)
    --Home screen scroll speed
    -Very smooth
    -Better than default
    -Up to seven home screens (fairly standard now in launcher apps)
    -Hide Notification bar

    Sum it up!
    So this app really kicks some butt, especially considering that it's only beta. I hope to see only one thing fixed (the dock drag and drop) when it comes out in full force! Would I use this app? Well I currently do!


    So, after further review I've realized that my comment about the dock was short-sided. Turns out you CAN put whatever you want on the dock, it's just kind of roundabout.

    Another issue I've discovered: Long-pressing on the applications no longer lets you move apps from the drawer to the home screen. To do this, you must go through the same roundabout process from above.

    This in mind, this is an outstanding out!

    you are able to long press on an application in the drawer and drag it to the home screen
