Launcher advice

Post by n1nj4ofshr3d »

I know I'm asking a lot on these forums, but I'm new to Android, but not to open source devices and stuff.
I need some advice on launchers. I seem to have a little room RAM wise, and would like a better looking option. Or, should I go with a lighter launcher for better widgets and stuff.
Any advice would be wonderful.

You'll get a lot of opinions, but yours is the one that matters for you.
There are a ton of free options (adw, launcherpro, go, zeam, others), try them all and see what you like.

There is also VTL launcher. I tried a few of the others and personally like this one best.

My advice may not be typical, or what you want to hear. I tried Zeam, Launcher go, ADW and a couple others and finally gave them all up for the stability and ease of the stock launcher.

I've been looking around, and I agree, the stock launcher is the best.

Has the stock launcher changed at all with the most recent firmware? I'm still on on 2.1.08, but it just seems very insensitive to swipes. Thats the main thing that I don't like about it.

That was then... Had great experiences usung Go Launcher recently. I tried it because the latest Froyo is playing havoc with the stock launcher, taking 10 or more seconds to reload. Go was a lot quicker to reload, and had to fewer times.

Zeam is perfect. The stock browser plus gestures and resizeable widgets and home screen space.
