Over the last few months there seems to be a lot of new choices when it comes to your home luncher. I have had the best results with LP because you can adjust the grid to 10x10 for ultimate customization. I have seen a lot on golauncher and some new commers like zeem, and 7. I would like you post on this thread what you use and why, and please...please...please if you can lets get a screen shot. Thanks

My comments from an earlier thread. Screen shots don't tell you much about the capabilities of a home launcher. GO Launcher has the best screen transitions and animations and I still prefer it over all others mainly for the reasons below. They're adding new themes all the time and recently they introduced GO Locker too which allows you to customize your lock screen.

What sort of pluses and minuses? Other than general look and feel, what are the specific differences that make you prefer one launcher over another?

So, other than "smoother" and "faster" (which are the two words I see in about 90% of the posts about launcher preference), what are some specific features that make you choose one launcher over another?



A couple of the main reasons I prefer GO, besides smoother and faster (which it is on my DX):

- Great selection of animations/screen transition eye candy. (I love the "sphere" setting in the app drawer and use "chariot" for home screen transitions)
- Can have anywhere from 1 to 9 home screens.
- Plenty of themes to choose from (I use the black glass)
- Scrollable dock with up to 15 icons with gesture action settings for each
- Simple to build and/or edit home screens. Instead of adding apps one by one, you can add a series of them using check boxes. Very easy to reorganize icons on a single home screen, just drag and drop and any displaced app icon just moves to an empty space on the screen. In the preview screen, drag and drop to re-order home screens, change default home screen or add/delete screens.
