    This is perfect. I always liked the ICS folder look over the GB versions on the D3. Love it.

    very interesting, i've been waiting for an ICS-like launcher to show up for GB. This could be exactly what my fresh install of Eclipse 3.0 needs.

    Ehhh

    I loved it at first, but on my D3 it has terrible refreshing when going from any app to the home screen. The bottom icons take up to 5 seconds to load. The app drawer when hit can also take a good deal of time to populate with the apps installed. Its better for me to see a spinning wheel, than watching the apps pop in like I get on my launcher pro from time to time.

    Its great besides the lag, which I cant hang with, drives me nuts.

    It really has been noticing my less than 1 gig of ram. sighh....stupid stupid stupid for buying the d3.

    I'm a big fan of Go Launcher on my TB, but I just downloaded it to see how well it works.

    Does this smell like chloroform to you?

    Really, its an early vs of go...its not bad but wtf is up wiff the goofy app drawer icon? Why not make it match the rest? And the screen preview sucks. At least do something like stock RAZR preview. All launchers seem to share the same preview anymore, which has really gotten old and lame.

    It's alright. Still has lag. Issues bringing up the app drawer. It needs something to stand above the rest.
    Go Launcher still top dog IMO.

    I've got lots of computers (and a smart phone is nothing more than a small computer) which I change themes on occasionally and they've never disappeared all my folders, programs, everything.

    As much as it may have been disappointing and a surprise, when a new launcher is installed it is almost always a completely new home page layout, usually showing you what the page "can look like" with a small selection of apps, tools, etc, but almost never a duplication of your existing home page layout. There is an app called Desk Migrate which claims to be able to backup and then duplicate your existing desktop layout onto a new launcher. It has relatively good reviews, 4 stars out of 5, but I've never tried it myself.

    In closing, don't be so harsh on the Dev of the launcher simply because it looks different than what you're used to. The fact is, it's made to look different, otherwise why would anybody download and use it?

    By the goofy app drawer icon, do you mean the circle with the 6 squares (intended to represent the app icons in an tile layout)? If so, that's the Stock ICS App Drawer button, so it fits perfectly with the theme.
