    Default Launcher question.

    I finally got my phone rooted with s-off. I was able to install the venisaur 3.1 Rom and I really like it except for one thing. The launcher scrolls left to right. Is there a launcher I can install that scrolls up and down?

    Almost all of the replacement launchers give you the option to change the app drawer scroll direction. Sense 4.0(and I think all Sense ROMs) scroll horizontally.

    Two popular launchers for ICS: Apex, Nova.
    Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long.
    We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things,
    because we're curious...and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

    If your using a replacement.... why not just stick with sense 3.6? The point of sense 4 is the home screen right? 3.6 works better right now anywho. Not that 4 is bad, that's what I'm using ATM, but I can't justify using a buggy rom for something I'm not gonna use.
    Took the S4 update on purpose, so I could not mess with my phone.... so so so stupid.

    The ROM isn't buggy first off.

    My use of the launcher is mostly because I can have a bunch of scrollable docks thus eliminating all icons on my home screen.

    I also like to customizing several aspects of the launcher....

    I like all the other features of the rom and of sense 4.0 just not the horizontal launcher. But I think i am just going to deal with it

    Is there a way to use the FriendStream Widget with Apex launcher? I have not been able to figure it out yet. I'm running the latest ICS leak, locked device, if that matters.

    I really like Apex launcher, it is definitely a better replacement for Launcher Pro Plus, which has always been my favorite because of the Twitter and Facebook Widgets. Thanks in advance.

    You and I are on the same paths here. Apex is better than lpp but no widgets.

    The.explanations I got was that the.widgets are integrated into sense and not separate apks. Once you take sense out of the equation, you lose the widgets. I was going to look for some after flashing pkman last night but that ended up being a bust and I did not get around to it.

    Thanks, I kinda figured that to be the case. Any suggestions on a good app that is similar to the friendstream widget or the lpp widgets? I've tried a few, none really float my boat.

    Checkout Android Pro Widgets (APW) from the Play Store. Widgets exactly like the ones used in LPP. But they work with any launcher...stock or 3rd party.

    I think I found my solution so I can use Apex now.

    The other great thing about APW is all the themes from launcherpro work with them (in the paid version).
