    I've been using Launcher Pro for months and have a UI that I put a lot of effort into and I really love, but LauncherPro is killing me lately. I get a force close pretty much every time I touch the phone and LP hasn't been updated in months. So I am looking for an alternative. One of the most important features for me is the scrollable Dock. Can anyone offer a suggestion?

    Went with Go Launcher, I felt exactly like you did. Launcher pro was awesome when it seemed like it got support.

    Gotta say I'm happy with Go Launcher. Fast, smooth, all that good stuff.

    just wasted my money on ADW, only to find that go launcher has a scrollable dock. Will set it all up and see how things go.

    THANKS

    fyi adw has a scrollable dock as well, it's the hidden dock and you open it by sliding up the regular dock.

    So, I'm setting up Go Launcher and looking for replacements for 2 LauncherPro Widgets which are the facebook widget and the people widget. Any recommendations?

    My issue with go launcher is the lack of themes and icon packs. Other then that it runs very well. But alas I am using ADW EX because of the icon packs and themes.[​IMG]

    FYI, Launcher Pro support has been slow because the developer is working on re-writing the entire code from scratch.

    Yeah but that rewrite has been working for months now. No word and no word on when it'll be done.

    It's one thing to wait a few weeks, its another to not hear a thing.
