    I've tried most of the major launchers - ADW, Go, Launcher Pro,, Holo, Nova, etc. I like that most have the option to set the app drawer as continuous vertical instead of horizontal paginated. I think it's much more enjoyable to smoothly zip up and down instead of going page by page.

    However, I have not seen a launcher which does a vertical continuous for the homescreen. That is, instead of a fixed number of pages like most, there would just be a single continuous screen that can be scrolled. Similar to Windows Phone. Closest I've seen is Launcher 7 that mimics Windows Phone and Crome, which also looks quite different from typical Android. I'd prefer something where the widgets & icons still look like Android.

    Try ssLauncher. You can definitely make vertically scrolling homescreens, but the ultra customizability might be overload for some people.

    Thanks for the suggestion! Yes, looks like you can just put icons & widgets below the current level and the homescreen will automatically scroll vertically - pretty cool. But yeah, it's quite customizable and also looks quite different so not sure how well it will work out! Hopefully there will be a new launcher or an option on one of the existing launchers (I've sent emails to developers of a couple of hem) where the homescreen can scroll vertically but otherwise the phone looks & acts more like "typical" Android.
