    Has anyone read the permissions this application wants? For example (just naming a few):

    YOUR MESSAGES - edit SMS or MMS, read Gmail, read SMS or MMS

    PERSONAL INFO - read browsers history and bookmarks, read calendar events, read contact data, write browsers history and bookmarks

    STORAGE - modify/delete SD card contents

    SERVICES THAT COST YOU MONEY - directly call phone numbers

    I love this app and haven't noticed any odd behavior, but can anyone explain the permissions?

    Messages - if you use the messages widget (Launcher Pro Plus)

    Personal Info - if you use the Bookmarks Widget (Launcher Pro Plus)

    Storage - For backup/restore capabilities

    Services that cost you money - Pretty much messaging, and data usage I guess

    The dev is well known so if he tried something funny, itd be pretty easy to pinpoint whodunnit. You can install it, it's fine.

    Fear not ! ! :)
    This app is one of the most prominate launchers available. The "costs $" part is because the app has functions that from with in it you can use paid features. It will not randomly send txts/calls with out ur direct consent. Have u used handcent, the txt app, it allows u to make calls? Ur warned of this and when u use the app to place a call its prompts u with a warning asking if thats what u wanna do....
    Im a pay(ing) customer and highly endorse this product. (Launcher pro[plus])I can vouche for it great proformance on 3 droid-1's.... fear not. ;-)
