    For anybody who doesn't have a sense 2.1 devise can now finally have sense features in the launcher. It has the pinch to zoom out and see the screens. It spretty sick. The only downfall is the shortcuts are locked and can't be edited.

    You can find it in the market for free.

    i didn't notice any fc's but i did notice some glitchyness. the app draw is smooth as a baby's bottom but adding widgets and swiping left and right to get to the other screens can be really sensitive at times and other times it is not sensitive enough.

    once this gets out of beta i will def give it a shot. I would even pay for it if it goes paid, though i don't know if he would be able to charge for an app launcher due to he is using somthing based off of googles work

    This is the best app I've ever discovered. It's way ahead of Helix in my opinion and it works so well, thank you for sharing it!

    This is a great launcher! It's so fast. I've tried many...about 6 at least I think...lost track. Looking for something fast and that has permanent shortcuts on bottom, this comes the closest to all that I have tried so far maybe 1 fc so far in 2 days. Saw that dev posted he was working on the shortcuts...seems pretty happy with the feedback so far! I'm sure it's motivating!

    Looks good and is quick so far, only used it for about 30 min but dont see the difference between this and helix. This is very smooth but so is helix launcher 2 for me. So i guess its just preference.

    I downloaded it but it doesn't show up in my app drawer. What gives? Is there a trick to start this app?

    Hit your home key and it will ask you what launcher you want to use at that time

    Launchers are not apps. They are in somewhat home replacements. There would be no need to open it up in the app drawer.

    Is this your first experience with an external launcher? Good luck with lunched.

    Helix works great for me, I rarely get an FC and it generally seems to work really well. I never used Helix2 because of so many saying it's slower. I think I'll try out this new launcher beta though but I hate having to re set up my screen with my apps and all since I have them set up just fine as they are now..lol.

    Knowing me though I'll try it, if for no other reason than to see just how much faster it is with the additional screens.

    I love this app. Can't wait for additional customization. ditched helix launcher and helix2 never worked right for me.

    best launcher so far. much faster than helix.

    If the icons at the bottom were selectable and customizable it would be perfect!

    Thanks, and yes it is my first experience with ANY launcher.

    On another note, I notice by hitting the home button my the phone that the claimed "Leap" feature doesn't show all of your home screens. Anyone else also not get this?

    I downloaded this last night, and spent about 45 minutes putting all my apps and widgets back on the way I like them. So far it is indeed really snappy and responsive, even better than Helix which was working great for me.

    If I tap the home button it does show all 5 screens every time, which is pretty cool.

    I would like to see the option to change the docking apps, like everyone else said, but other than that so far so good.

    Just replaced Helix2 with launcherpro. Much faster. I like the way tapping the home key pops up all of my screens. Only downfall - I can't change the dock apps.

    As the dock apps were all on my home screen already, I'm good with the dock apps. It seems to be a very nice launcher. Prior to this one, GDE was the only launcher I had kept running for longer than 24 hours.
