    Go Launcher EX is a replacement home app - if you press your "home" key, you should see a popup which would allow you to setup and configure Go Launcher as your launcher of choice (after you select it of course)...

    You should also have the option to migrate your home screens from your current launcher into Go (this won't copy widgets if I remember correctly)...

    Good luck!

    I used Go Launcher on my DROID 2 and absolutely loved it. Tons of customization options. You just have to mess around and tweak it to your liking. Unfortunately, it's been a while since I used it. So I can't think of any tips at the moment. Good luck!

    If you mean your home screen shortcuts are gone, that's because you need to re-organize your home screens. I love Go Launcher I use it on my s3 sometimes and always used it on my droid x. My favorite launcher app by far. And it has tons of themes and weekly updates so it is never 'buggy'. You might want to check out go locker and go sms as well for full phone customization ;)

    I love it on my S3. Incredibly smooth and fluid. Adding in Desktop Visualizer allows me to get my homescreens exactly how I like them.

    This does look good.
    A lil cluttered for my taste but your use for the DVisualizer looks great.

    I have the launcher on my droid Bionic and I've seen it on the Galaxy Nexus. Basically a home replacement app. I've never heard of that problem before though

    That depends on what a person is looking for. GoLauncher has far more pre-made themes available in the Play store and other places online than either Nova or Apex. It also has an entire ecosystem of other "Go" apps and widgets that all work in conjunction with GoLauncher.

    Used GoLauncher for 2 years, great launcher, required for my X2 to not suck. Only one I found worthy of replacing it was TSF Shell. Pricey, but awesome.

    I used to use Launcher Pro, but it hasn't been updated in over a year. Because of that, it doesn't work correctly with ICS or Jelly Bean. It's also way behind all of the other major launchers as far as features and options go. Supposedly the developer is rewriting it, but I'll believe it when I see it.

    What do you consider a major launcher though?

    Launchers that work the best and have the most support. I'd say there are three major launchers right now - GoLauncher, Apex, and Nova. Apex and Nova are ICS-only I believe, which is why GoLauncher is the most popular of the three.
