    Seems this app isn't updated much anymore. What are users using now?

    I have been using Go Launcher on my OG Droid and now on the Droid 3. Very snappy on the Droid 3.

    Thanks. Might look into that. I like the calendar widget though with LauncherPro. Allows me to sync with google calendars. Would need to find a replacement for that.

    Go Launcher also has widgets for calendar, Facebook, contacts, Twitter, Messages, and others.

    The calendar widget syncs with Google Calendar.

    If you dig the widgets on LPP then go to market and get android pro widget. They are as close to LPP as your gonna get. Then use adw or go launcher.... And go is real snappy for me.

    Did the same thong switched put of lpp and moved to go then adw. Loved go but the themes sucked so I switched to adw for the plethora of themes. I like adw although it doesn't have transition effects unless you buy EX which I didn't feel like doing. Hope this helps.

    While I wish LP was updated more, I think it's working more or less perfect already, so i'm not switching just for lack of updates. The features are unmatched IMHO.

    Launcher Pro, because constant updates doesn't mean something is better ;) Widgets are great, transitions are great, customization is great, speed is great.

    Weird, it doesn't force close on my Droid 1, my Droid 3, my Gtablet or my wife's Droid 1. Day to day use, reboots, on/off docks, etc....no force closes.

    I never had fc's with LP until my D2G got the GB update-now I have to fc after every third reboot, then it runs as fine as on froyo. Nothing beats LP, the app hider for the drawer alone makes it a stand out, and everything else is smooth and creamy.
