    I don't know of one but it it's fairly user friendly and you have us. Ask questions!

    You can also ask the Dev, through twitter. His name is "GoLauncher".

    Where'd the wallpaper go? I picked the Christmas style for the dock but can't find the wallpaper.

    I was on a ADW bandwagon for a while now. LPP left me wanting for various reasons.

    Will give this one a test run some time.

    What does GOSMS do that Handcent doesn't? why should I switch?

    Trying go sms and can't figure out how to get my contact pictures to sync to my sms contacts. I have sync my pics app but really don't know what im doing wrong.
  5. I tried using my LP icons for my dock but they won't work? Really liked the worded LP icons and kinda sad I can't use them lol.

    They don't work, because the dev says they are oversized.. I'm sure he'll fix it in an update. I like them too as I use Lekky's Tall Min. (don't judge me). ;)
  7. No they were coming up blank earlier for some reason lol. I got it working now but you are correct they are a bit too big. A resizing and I'll be falling in love (if he gives a good calendar widget, that'd be sweet). I love the background on the app drawer. Nice personal touch.

    That does help, especially the weather/clock widget. I thought I had seen several times on here that my phone had to be rooted to get that. Guess not, Sweet. I'll have to check out the sports and Jorte widgets.

    I installed some calendar widget last night that looks decent but I'm having trouble syncing it to my calendar. Well the main problem was that I don't use any calendars, not on a computer anyway. It wouldn't let me add a note for Christmas Eve because I didn't have it synced. I started a Google calendar and went through the settings, seemed simple enough but it still wouldn't sync. I'll try this Jorte. Thanks humph.

    Does Go Launcher prevent your phone from sleeping? I just checked SpareParts and my phone has been awake all day... no wonder the battery has sucked. The only other change I made was installing "Agenda Widget".

    Is there a way to get that Christmas wallpaper back?

    For backup, just backup Go Launcher with TiBu. On restore, it reconstructs everything except widgets--just like LPP's retore.

    To me this is a huge advantage over LPP. LPP never properly restores from TiBu. Having a simple one stop shop for backup in TiBu versus having to go into LPP and try a backup is genius.

    Same issue here. It's killing my battery. Can't have it so I will freeze until a fix is made.

    I switched from LP to Zeam a while ago, even though I paid for LP.
    Zeam is super fast, and super stable. I'm just curious why everyone didn't switch to Zeam but did switch to this launcher when, aside from a tabbed app drawer, Zeam is at least as good if not better.

    GL has made a duplicate icon of about 12 apps in the app drawer...anyone else have this issue?

    Ive been thinking about trying that launcher, maybe I will check it out. Can you change the icons in the app drawer like LP?

    I have used hancent since day 1 and I tried out GoSms yesterday. The biggest issue with GoSms for me is that it doesn't allow you to customize the alert for each contact like handcent does. (unless I missed that option somewhere)

    True but I have found you can do that with Ringo.

    That's what I was thinking, I just couldn't see a reason to switch. Go launcher sounds interesting. But honestly the launcher isn't that big a deal to me. I have switched from blur home to ADW to LPP to ADW back to blur and forth.

    So far honestly I like ADW the best, but I will give this one a try. I don't care so much about how it looks as opposed to how it performs. This is why I like ADW.

    I have to say great customer support. Sent them an email about my contact issue and they are already on the fix within 12 hrs. Looks like I will test the Beta later tonight to see if the problem is fixed.
  25. It'd be really nice when I have it plugged into my dock to get a landscape version. Kind of a pain when I wake up to have to tilt my head sideways and try to use it just to read my text messages.
