    Been using LauncherPro Beta and just switched over to ADW Launcher with installing CyanogenMod and I feel like ADW is a lot smoother but I love the LauncherPro Beta widgets. Any opinions? :icon_ banana:

    I've used both ADW and LauncherPro...I really find that LauncherPro is a lot nicer and smoother for me.

    I too prefer LP over ADW. I was originally a Helix user, then switched to ADW. Once I found LP, I never turned back!

    Just played around with ADW for a couple hours and it SUCKS in landscape mode, only thing I really like better about it is the swipe up and down gestures that you can set up apps to.

    It used to be called that, guess I was used to calling it that. LauncherPro Plus is what I have too and I love the widgets.

    Used LP exclusivly before Pro was released. Had to give it up because of the FC problems I was having. Been using ADW ever since. Smoother for me IMO.

    personally, i get a lot less screen redraws with ADW - might just be my phone. i also like ADW because of the ability to size the widgets (1x1, 4x1, 4x4, etc...). but, i don't want to denigrate LPP, cuz i really like Fede's work!

    Used launcher pro but the redraws and fcs were to much so went to adw, much smoother for me.

    You can now re-size any widget using Launcher Pro Plus.

    I have tried a few other home screen apps but nothing beats LPP. By far the best usable settings and widgets. Also constant support and updates.

    I too started out with Helix. Then I found ADW, and then LauncherPro. LauncherPro is better than Helix AND ADW.
