    I'm digging the new screen transitions! Fortunately, I haven't had any issues with excessive redraws or force closes, and I've been using LP for nearly 5 months.

    FC's Eliminated for Me with This Version (0.8.4)

    I have been using Launcher Pro for many months. I liked it so much that I purchased a license. With the last version (0/8/3) I had so many forced closes (FCs) that I stopped using it and switched to Go Launcher and Colorized Widgets to have similar functionality.

    Last night I downloaded and installed version 0.8.4. The FC's seemed to have stop and the snappiness seems to have returned. I have uninstalled both Go Launcher and Colorized Widget.

    I am looking forward to the rewrite too.

    I have used LauncherPro since it's release and have been quite pleased. It's amazing to me how many people have expected him to update the product every few weeks and then rip him apart on the market reviews when he didn't - despite the fact it worked perfectly fine.

    I purchased Launcher Pro but didn't like some of the contact features. They didn't play well on the DX. I even submitted something to the LP forums, but got no help. :unsure:

    I switched to the GO Launcher EX and it is MUCH better. I like the different backgrounds and I can resize my contact in the Contact Direct Task widget, which I couldn't do with LP Pro.

    I'll save and back up my version of LP Pro in case I ever decide to use it, but I like GO Launcher a lot better.

    I did the exact same thing, for the same reasons. But, since I already paid for LP Plus, I'm still looking forward to seeing the rewrite. Until then, it Go Launcher EX for me.

    For those of you who also switched, please keep me updated, as I'm curious to see how the rewrite comes out and how well each of you like it. I never bought the plus version, but I will be interested to hear if it's any better!

    Play a jam!

    I have been using LP Plus for about 6 months. Upgraded to new version a couple of days ago. Works fine, but I am noticing it is causing a tremedous drain on my battery.

    For example, I fully charged my phone this morning and have not used it all day. Just got the alarm (10 hours later) that down to 15%. I checked battery usage and LP was 34%. Display was only 17%. I have never previously seen anything close to those numbers for LP. This is 3rd day in row I am seeing this now.

    Anybody else having this issue?

    I'm having a similar problem. Using LauncherPro 0.8.4.1, Project Elite 4.2 Froyo ROM, RZ Low-Voltage kernel clocked to 800mhz. 20 hours after fully charging the battery, I'm now down to 15%, with very light usage.

    I should also point out, that I usually can go 40-48 hours on a full charge (yes, I'm a light user)

    Where is the G mail widget? I open LP Widgets and it is not listed... I am and have been on Plus for almost a year now.

    Upgraded to 0.8.4.1 last night as well as logged onto Facebook and removed LP's permissions to access my FB account (as was not making use of the LP FB widget).

    One of those 2 actions fixed the problem. LP back to using insignificant battery usage!!
