I know this was being discussed elsewhere but I though maybe we could consolidate the discussion about Launcher Pro in one place...
First things...this is everything on all my home screens (I'm only using 4):
Launcher Pro 0.6.0
Beautiful (smaller home)
Genie news/weather app
ES Task Manager widget
Miscellaneous and various shortcuts to apps
It doesn't seem to matter what screen I am on or what widgets are on that screen...every so often, unless I am running the kernel flat-out at 1.25...the screen lags and icons pop into being on at a time, them widgets slowly, one at a time, then the screen freezes for a second or two, then everything is fine again for a bit. Eventually it happens again. I'll close something and it's like the phone ran out of memory and has to dump what it's doing and redraw the screen.
Stock launcher is not doing this, but stock launcher also sucks hairy rat behind, so...there's that. It doesn't rotate, it doesn't allow 4 buttons and all the customization, blah blah blah you all know why you love Launcher Pro.
The other issue I have is the same as many; Launcher Pro simply doesn't see what is on the SD card until after SD housekeeping is done and you restart Launcher Pro. It is kind of becoming a pain in the rear...And I noticed that the stock launcher *is* seeing all the apps. So is GDE. Sees them all when Launcher Pro is not. So...whatever they are doing, Launcher Pro needs to do. Periodically polling the system to ask what is installed maybe? Although as I type that it seems like a battery suck, so that may not be a good idea.
Thoughts? Your experiences? How can we make this kick-ass Launcher Pro an even more kick-ass product? Is this redraw problem happening for people on other roms? Is it a Bugless issue and not Launcher Pro?
