    I think this is just a rant, but...

    Could the market do a better job with categorizing launchers? If you do a search for "launcher" what you get is some buried launchers and 8 million Go Launcher themes. Go Launcher is excellent, but it would be nice to just see launchers and not themes for launchers. Maybe there could be a generic "Themes for xxx launcher" or something similar. Just saying.

    Rant complete.

    This is very easy to get around by using the standard search functions. For searching you can use the '-' function (that is search but "less/do not include" the following term. In the search criteria type "launcher -go" (without the apostrophes). This will drop all launcher items that are "GO" related.

    It is not stupid. It is easy to forget because these functions do not work with searches at every site.
