    Default Launchers in Honeycomb?

    Anyone using launchers in Honeycomb? I was reading about ADW and learned that launchers are capable in Honeycomb. My question is, what do they do in Honeycomb? The primary feature with phones is changing the homescreen icons (Dial, App Drawer, Messaging, etc). Honeycomb does not have those icons, asides from apps drawer. Does it customize the screen transitions?

    I'm using LauncherPro. It adds the dock for phone and messaging and such, you can just change them to whatever you want. And screen transitions are customizable. It ends up looking just like it would on the phone except everything is spread out and smaller due to the resolution.

    Just got ADW and its OK so far. I don't have a problem with the stock home launcher. I do have LPP on my DX.

    Can you link those photos? I'd like to see how they look.

    The new adw works great. Better than stock now that the resolution issue is fixed.

    Nah I'm not. The stock launcher provides all the features I would look for on my phone, such as scrollable widgets and more columns and rows.
