    The greatest live wallpaper I know of is Solar Winds set on "undertow". Amazing on my X.

    I'm a big fan of LauncherPro, it's one of the few apps that I had no question was worth a few bucks.

    Like I said I use LPP and have three scrollable docks. I would think adw could also do that but I don't use it so I'm not 100% sure. If you decide to go with LPP also download the app launcher pro icons and docks and there are hundreds of choices for different icons and docks along with different colors for each. I think that would be your best option short of root, rom, and theming.

    I use Launcher Pro in conjunction with DreamLyfe.Sharp...and it does make my phone stand out along with the icon pack that is included with DreamLyfe.Sharp...see the attached screenshot below. Bear in mind, I am also running Liberty ROM...but the only real way to know that is the wallpaper and battery icon...


    Main Home Screen...notice the 5 icons on the Launcher Dock...

    Main App Screen...notice the 5 icons on the Launcher Dock here...not the same as the first screen..

    All of this is done with Launcher Pro Plus + DreamLyfe.Sharpe..and the dock has another 5 shortcuts than can be added...

    Nice screen shots. Is lpp the launcher of choice or is it split with adw. Need to look at youtube when i get home and see if i can find some vids of them both. Does the liberty rom not have its own custom launcher?

    This isnt the original screen shot I seen with the Icons I was trying to discribe. Found it in the MIUI section. These dont look exactly like what I seen the first time but this gives you an idea of what I seen.

    Liberty comes stock with launcher 2, but from what I gather most people use lpp or adw. They are all good launchers it just comes down to personal preference.

    ADW's dock isn't scrollable per se, but it does have two separate docks. I quick swipe up will switch between the two.

    I don't use the second dock on ADW but I thought it was supposed to be scrollable indefinitely. Add all you want to it.

    Hmmph, you made me look. :) I use the second dock. It's not scrolling for me. Just switches between the two when I swipe up.

    Maybe it does and I'm missing something?

    The app description says add all you want to it and it scrolls. Maybe if you add more to it. And its only the hidden dock not the main one.

    Hmmm, maybe it's a setting I have to change. Believe me, at this point, it doesn't scroll. Right, left, up, down.... no scrolling.

    I'll play around a bit and see what I come up with.

    Edit: Looked through settings, not in there. I have the paid version also so it's not a nerfed feature. I remember reading that about one of the other launchers and seem to remember not having that and instead having what I have now would be fine with me. Are you sure that that's not the specs for launcher pro or another launcher?

    Edit edit: Straight from the appbrain description: "-Customizable hidden dockbar easy to trigger with support for unlimited icons with scroll. Just swipe up your finger over the main dock to reveal the hidden one, swipe down to return to the main one!"

    So ya, it should scroll, and it's me! LOL No surprise there!

    Edit edit edit: LOL Ya, you were right, add another icon and it drops right in there. /sigh I'm getting old.

    Sorry for hijacking OP!
