    -ability to 'disable' most system apps, and 'uninstall' bloatware such as Kindle, Blockbuster, Let's Golf! etc. (WITHOUT ROOT)
    -screenshot function built-in (although i already paid for an app, this is still pretty cool)
    -widget previews before you add.


    i think the cons still outweigh the pros. but if you've got more pros, throw them here, because for the most part, we're stuck with ics, so lets make the best of it.

    assuming you have razr i would be surprised if you are not on ICS . go to settings-about phone - and see what it says android version is should be 4.0.X ( i dont know last number guessing a 4 but don't know) if not than hit the system update button it will see update available and install it. as of right now no way back to GB

    i used launcherpro, and although its a developer issue, i dislike the incompatibility with ics.
    i wish ics supported changing the number of rows/columns. or changing dock icons, gestures on dock icons.

    i was rooted on gb. removed root, and then tried to sideload ics, and bricked phone. i am still stock on my replacement with ics. so a lot of the new "pros" with ics were things i already had with rooted gb.
    i haven't updated to .215 yet, still on .211

    I used go and liked it, but now I use Nova and it also has all of those options as well. Both are great launchers!
