    New Launcher+ App! Only adds home screens without any of the junk!

    Other users have also reported it here so I'm not going to take the credit of finding it. I was originally alerted by a user at androidforums.

    Anyways, say good bye to the constant force closing og pandahome or crashing home++!

    Launcher+ Beta was just released (by the same guys who made home++) and it ONLY adds extra homescreens. Its minimalist, its AWESOME, and so far it works well.

    I'll be honest I had one force close, but I'm a HEAVY user of widgets, so that's probably why. Even still, one force close is still not that bad. Also, I had issues with home++ and Apps organizer, but this works really well with Apps organizer.

    Get it while its HOT!!!

    Search Launcher+ in the market or you can go here.

    After playing around with it, it seems Launcher+ and pure calendar widget do not get along...Launcher+ force closes a lot when I try to play around with the pure calendar widget. It got so bad that when I clicked on a date to view my daily appointments, Launcher+ kept force closing as soon as it relaunched, so I was caught in a force close loop O_o

    But I just pressed the home button and it reloaded okay. But nonetheless, watch out for pure calendar widget. If anyone has a positive experience with pure calendar and Launcher+ let me know maybe its something I'm doing.

    Yea I dont see it in mine either. Try pressing the home button, that might bring it up. If not, go into market and hit settings/menu and go to your downloads. You should be able to access it from there.

    Figured out some tweaks for Launcher+ to get it working smoothly, thanks to other users at another forum site. Now, Launcher itself is very stable and I've only had 2 issues with force closing (pure calendar) but when I implemented the two fixes below, problems were all solved.

    1)Remove widgets from your other home apps, that will allow the widgets in launcher to run smoother

    2)the best way to fix Launcher++ apps is to uninstall your other home apps completely. This will help a lot. This option is only for those who are set on using Launcher+ as their primary homescreen app. For others who are merely testing it, this is not a feasible option obviously

    on a sidenote, I saw that once I uninstalled a homescreen app (pandahome and home++) and when i reinstalled them, they brought back my homescreens the way i left them customized...but there were some discrepencies. Widgets especially were missing in some. But anyways, just a thought for those who are thoughtful.

    Wow this is pretty cool. Go to the Launcher+ homescreen and hold the menu button and u can select a screen to go to instead of swiping all the way.
