    Debating heavily between these 2. Been using LP+, and I love it's fluid movement. However, I also love the colorful look of the standard TouchWiz interface.

    What are you guys using, and why?

    Launcher Pro because it blows all other launchers out of the water. ADW is nice too, but im stuck with LP for now..

    Tried launcher pro plus since I had it on my droid 1 but touch wiz seems more responsive and I prefer the colors and size of the icons with touch wiz...i am rooted with lag fix and touch wiz is just a little faster for me and I like the bigger icons.

    I'm going back and forth between TW and LP+, but my main issue with TW is the fact that there is no native calendar widget!

    I prefer ADW.Launcher over all of them on the Fascinate. Much more smooth than Launcher Pro for me.

    Been using lp+ for quite a while now and figured I'd check out touchwiz, but I'm not finding it in the market. Tried it as one word and as two. Am I missing something?

    Touchwiz is samsungs UI for their phones, like Sense and Blur for HTC and Moto.

    What is Launch Pro? Everyone recommends it but I cannot find out good info on it on exactly what it is and does?
    My phone is not rooted if that matters.

    I know it's on the market, but what is it and what does it do exactly?
    Even the info on the market on it doesn't describe it well.

    It also has a customizable and scrollable dock to access your favorite apps from any homescreen as well as some other handy features and a very smooth interface.

    The plus version is available through the developer's website or from a link in the preferences menu of launcherpro, and has an assortment of scrollable widgets including a calendar, contacts, bookmarks, twitter, facebook, and a combination of facebook/twitter.

    It replaces your stock homescreen and gives you more customization options.
