I plan on trying it out eventually (I did download it after watching some videos showing off some just amazing features ). But so far I'm still enjoying the default launcher on my Captivate.
But I guess I wonder why people care if Launcher Pro can hide apps? Does anyone use the Applications area? I think of it as a holding area and I only really use the apps I have placed in one of the launcher home screens (and if it's not there, I'd likely just do a quick search for it). I never go no the Applications area unless I just downloaded something and want to put it on one of my homes screens.
So really just wondering ... thanks.

Re: New launcher pro update = no bloat
The calendar widget is the best I've seen, asthetically at least. And it scrolls and does everything this wannabe power user needs.
Google needs to scoop that dev up and give him a job. Along with a handful of others imo.

I think its better as well. The side swiping in the app menue annoys me for some reason. The launcher being unthemed doesnt really bother me as long as the Rom looks nice. I dont need a colored android to launch my apps instead of the square dots. I am really looking forward to his messaging app. He should also include a task/to do app to go along with the calendar.

I think the calendar wastes a lot of space personally, it seems everything could be condensed, at least having some options to change spacing and font size would be nice. switching to the panel with the calendar widget could just as easily be replicated by viewing the actual calendar via the app icon, and you would then have more functionality.

I would also request the ability to set what calendar opens. I prefer Jorte to the built in calendar.

I use Jorte and dont think its ugly. I have the black style and make the widgets almost transparent. With a darker background it looks quite nice and minimal. I use a 2x2 weekly and the 2x2 tasks side by side. To each his own but Jorte is quality along with pure calendar. The only thing launcher pro calendar is missing is tasks widget/be able to show tasks in the agenda view.

Jorte isn't ugly, the widgets are quite nice with the black blackground and since I use normally darker wallpapers they are almost transparent, like mr. miagi mentioned. So far it's the best calendar app I've used. Everybody is different though so if you like something else, that's fine too.

Another feature in the newest update I found
Long press on an icon in the quick launcher bar - you now have three options
Swipe gesture action
the last is the greatest thing - you can set your icons now to do something else when you swipe up/down on them
for example - got a quick launcher set to text your significant other? set its swipe gesture to direct dial them!
it's two for the price of one! BRILLIANT!
I'm tweaking mine as I speak!
