    I found this home replacement last night and it is FAST. It is honestly faster than any other home replacement I've ever tried and faster than any of the stock ones we've used.

    The feature list isn't huge but the speed is amazing! The app drawer is 2D but the apps "fly in" like the 3D one.

    Here is the market description:

    Everything listed above is SUPER smooth. Screen scrolling, app drawer scrolling, the fly-in effect, the screen previews, all amazingly fast.

    It is so fast that I think I'll keep this one. Also, the dev has been updated fairly regularly with new features.

    Oh my....just using it for a few seconds, yea its fast. Yea I wanna change the 4 docked icons too. You can still drag icons to trashcan at bottom of screen. I havent tried Live Wallpapers yet. Going from portrait to landscape no issues yet.

    This is very nice so far. Whats the animated screen previews? If its the lil preview of the screens, I'm not getting it. I tried double tapping, etc.

    Oh yea, this just became my default launcher....hopefully I dont have any headaches with it.

    Thanks for the find and the tip.

    If you set it to your default launcher you can press the Home key and it will show you all of your screens and you can tap one to jump to it.

    I haven't had any FCs and I added several widgets to see if that would slow it down. Nope, still super fast.

    So far this is very nice. It is extremely fast and i'm actually comparing it to Zeam. I thought Zeam was quick. But yeah I'm digging this. I like the Sense view. Zeam's screen view shows the background. This would be nice to have that added on here. Def needs to have options of customizing shortcuts. Wonder what one can do making whatever screen into a hone screen on this?
    I will make sure to add this to the Home Application thread. I would like to see disable notifications and screen capture on these new home apps.
    Thanks for the find.

    this is THE smoothest launcher I have ever used. I kinda wish the buttons were able to be programmed to other apps but I am keeping it nonetheless. THIS is the way a launcher should perform. I am definitely picking this up when it gets out of beta. Great launcher!

    This is how home launchers should perform. The fact that all launchers seem to act sluggish bothered me to no end. To me, it didn't make any sense seeing how capable the Droid is. LauncherPro is now my default.

    Does anyone notice when you're in the app drawer, and you select an app, it doesn't get highlighted?

    You can't interact w/ lwp's. But I don't even use those. And an option to change the shorcuts would be nice. But other than that, it's nice. It will stay my default for a while.

    Noticed folders on the home screens no longer have transparent backgrounds. It is faster than Helix launcher2 though.
