    Some points:
    1. Can't hide apps from app drawer
    2. Can't re-size widgets
    3. No color icons for the dock

    Sounds like a nice launcher that needs some updates to become great.

    It's got a ton of potential that's for sure. Not enough for me to give up LauncherPro Plus yet, but it could down the road.

    Has anyone noticed an increase in battery usage with this launcher?

    It's more likely that you have widgets still updating on other home screens that you "turned off" so that you can use GoLauncher.

    I noticed this battery problem when I installed a home launcher. Turns out the widgets I set on the stock launcher were still updating in the background, essentially running twice. I went through all the launchers I have installed, except for the one I am currently using, and removed all widgets. Battery life is much improved.

    I'm happy with LauncherPro. I like to be able to customize the icons.

    I am thoroughly enjoying this Launcher. I've dumped the rest for it (although have LauncherPro as backup). Its much smoother and less annoying on my Fascinate. And of course, its free. I just want to learn how to create my own icons, lock screen and top bar. I have not noticed ANY battery drain issues - in fact its been better for me now that I have Juice Defender and Advanced Task Manager working Crazy-stupid on lock-down.

    v1.3 is supposed to be released today (according to their badly worded Twitter account). I still strongly recommend using it. As soon as I figure out to how theme and make some of the minor changes myself... its going to be AMAZING.

    It doesn't state, but does it have 'scrollable widget' support?? Without this it is useless to me as my fave and most used apps/widgets are the Pure Widgets (which look and functon much better with scroll support)....

    Their latest Tweets state it will support more themes in the next month as well as custom dock features. I downloaded 1.3 the other morning but haven't noticed much difference.

    Just for updates sake... not sure how far back this goes, but you can resize widgets and change icons now.

    You still cannot hide apps from the app drawer.

    I tried it out and it does indeed support scrollable widgets (I use Pure messenger and grid calendar) I liked it but I am waiting for the ability to costumize the dock background and work out a few of the bugs although the latest update did fix the duplicate items showing up in the app drawer.

    Just curious, I seem to be having phone memory issues and until I figure out where the heck my memory is going, I am looking for launcher that supports sd card storage? or at least the themes can be stored on the SD Card. I see some other, older launchers like Ahome allow this but are there any others? Currently using ADW Ex on HTC Desire 2.2.

    Anybody knows who is behind the Go Launcher app or what is their privacy policy?

    Could not find any information on the web.

    Is it a company? Who are the developers? In what country are they located? Is it a front for the PLA?

    They get quite a lot of permissions on our phones.

    Supposedly we are getting an upgrade today to "GO Launcher EX." This new version of the program is designed to be leaner and meaner. Also it comes with several new themes. I'm hoping for the ability to create my own.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks

    I know I'm anxious to see their new EX version. I think they are updating their page as they go, I don't know. Hopefully it will be up in the market tonight. I downloaded and viewed the new APK file from their web site last night but see that it is gone now. (Edit: It is on their main page, sorry) Lots of new icons.

    I'm also a little curious: How can they produce such a great launcher without charging any $$$?

    There hasn't been any ads in previous versions. They seem to address permissions on their site but I'm just curious. I really like this launcher, I think it is the best one out there, but I just wonder how they can do this without any payment.

    Maybe I'm just paranoid. My wife says I am
