    I had one a few months ago I really liked but can't remember name or anything!!

    It was one screen, and had gray background..each category such as text messages was in one horrizantal bar, weather in a bar below ad s on..on the left of each bar was a color representing the thing it was listing as well..

    It was SO conveniant everything on one page..fb, twitter, email, weather etc..

    I went from Launcher Pro to ADW and rested with Go Launcher. It is faster, smaller too but needs more things for it. It also has a few options neither of the other popular ones have.

    I'm using Launcher Pro - its my first experience with this type of program and has some nice features. It seems pretty stable - it hasn't crashed or anything yet. You have to restart it often when you change settings which is a bit annoying but it only takes a few seconds.

    What are the differences between Launcher Pro and say, Go Launcher or any of the others mentioned here?

    Go Launcher uses less resources but has less themes and options.

    I'm not a fan of the multiple screens, just too much going on at once. I do have Launcher Pro and have it set to one screen and the only widget running is Beautiful Widgets. I like Slidescreen but its quite laggy and needs a lot of work. I'm in LOVE with *Spark by Hiplogic, its my favorite launcher! If your a fan of 1 screen launchers like me, you'd also love it! Are there any other 1 screen launchers out there with different UI's?

    I am using ADW EX and i have no problems with it. Even with changing settings. Hasnt crashed on me at all, and i have been using it for about three weeks now. Absolutely love it. I have the cricket huawei ascend. I also am using the droid berry theme on it and love it, even more so than the tron legacy theme. I get loads of compliments for the look of my phone. And most cant believe its a cricket phone. I do have a question, if i install icarus 1.1 on my phone, can i still use ADW Ex and my droid berry theme. Like if i back up my phone?

    I have been an avid user of adw from the free one, all the way to the ADW ex launcher (paid) and I have had no problems. ADW has always been stable for me and a breath of fresh air from TouchWiz. I love the new features Ex came with...ever time I change something it makes it like a new phone :) This is just my humble opinion. ADW is SUPER Sweet!

    I think all the launchers have their pros/cons, just depends on which ones your happy with. I started with Launcher Pro, bought it and like it. then tried ADW and currently remaining with GoLauncher. Tried Zeam as well and really like the 'dock' bar: just drag any screen icon to it and it was added. Could have as many as you wanted in a continiously scrolling dock bar.

    Welcome to our AndridForums, EvaldasVait :).

    Not sure what you mean about messing-up your app drawer, but I've used Nova Launcher for a couple of year now and it works great (not a power user mind you, but just the simple functions of extra rows, columns, etc.).

    You can also hide what apps you want to see when you pull-up the app drawer, but you should see all your apps without issue after first installing.

    Cheers!
