    Soooo, I installed launcherPro today, simply out of curiosity and what I got nearly made me cry. It is so simple and beautiful and makes my droid x not feel like a cupcake fairy princess running sense.

    Question 1 - Are you using LauncherPro and are you as happy as me?

    Question 2 - My battery life seems better, a side effect of LauncherPro?

    Question 3 - Is it wrong that my phone is sexier than my wife's iPhone 4?

    Question 4 - I just felt like making an even number...

    I just sold my droid on ebay. In an email told the buyer, be SURE to load Launcher Pro. At the same time the question rolled through my mind, yes? Launcher Pro on the X?? And then I remembered that it already had the five screens. So you are finding it still to be better? And have you gone back to stock to verify? I also found as suggested to take off all of the icons i.e. drag them to the trash on the stock home screen prior to loading up and using Launcher Pro. especially widgets. I did not test or confirm performance differences.

    I like LP although I highly doubt it's giving you better battery life

    I'm an ADW man myself. I doubt its actually giving you better battery life. The Droid is always better than iAnything.

    I downloaded launcher pro and tried it out.

    I don't really get why everybody is so hot about this. What does it do for you that you don't get without it?

    I stop short of calling it god, but I do love the 5 column app drawer option as well as the scrolling customizable dock letting you place up to 15 shortcuts on the dock as opposed to the stock 2 that are chosen for you, and then the ability to easily apply the icons of your choosing to the dock shortcuts. All in all I just like the customability of the dock, but there are other perks too.

    For me, more than having extra home screens I like LauncherPro because I can set 3 docks. I got rid of using my drawer altogether. I changed the drawer launch icon to my flashlight because I check on my sleeping kids throughout the night. With 3 docks and loop scrolling I have 15 extra shortcuts on the right at all times, and nice n' neat too! You surely can't do that with the stock launcher.

    i like LP+ even better - it seems snappier than the beta version. it's worth the 4 bucks! but, you have to dl directly from the dev'r @ launcherpro.com.

    i heard some great things about ADW, and i've been running it for over a week. i think i'm going back to LP+ tho...

    tried LP for a while and found more joy with ADW.

    ADW for the win right now.......but I might end up switching back because of boredom. Who knows right?

    LP. Seriously. The amount of customization it gives the user is far superior to the stock interface. Not to mention the fluidity of LP can't be matched by stock. I simply love it.

    My only question is-- how will Froyo compare to 2.1? Will we still love/need LP as much as we do now?

    I will continue to use LauncherPro mainly for the multi-dock and ability to long press and change the items in the docks. This, and the ability to move the dock to either of the 4 sides of the phone (not even available in LauncherPro) should be included in stock firmware with no 3rd party launcher needed. Until that happens I'm using LauncherPro, personally.

    LP might be "god" in it's simplicity but nothing can beat Sweeterhome for customizing.

    I've seen you saying that a few times here and there. That purple theme screenshot you posted DID look pretty cool. Can you tell me a few features that Sweeterhome has that I'm not getting with LauncherPro please? And can I customize the dock and have several docks similar to why I've mentioned I like LauncherPro so much? I'm always up to try new things out on my phone.

    One of the best features is you can make the app icons any size you want.

    Here's my app drawer:

    [​IMG]

    As far as docks....Yes you can create anything you want. check out my first post in here: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...sion-sweeterhome-out-now-live-wallpapers.html

    That has FIVE different looks all on one theme. In other words ... you can put a different look and dock bar on each screen with as many apps and different widgets that you want.

    OK you've convinced me to try it out. That theme looks really pretty. My daughter will be bugging dad to flash it for her if she sees this!
