    Ok so I have tried several different launcher ADW, Lp Etc.. but I have to say GO Launcher is Off the chain since the recent updates. The transitions that was added kick A$$ team responds quickly. I'm quite impressed and loving it! I would like to know what some of you GO Launcher addicts think of the latest update. I'm just curious as to your feeling, as the update keep coming, along with there other apps Go Sms, etc.

    What else you guys think would push this launcher over the top??

    I love GO Launcher. I have been using it for a few months. I think the latest updates have been awesome. I am loving the new screen transitions and added themes. One thing I can think of that would put it over the top is scrollable widgets.

    I installed Go yesterday after using Launcher Pro since having the phone. I think I prefer Go Launcher. I hadn't messed with the screen transitions, just left them at default until I read this thread. I like them! Right now I have the roll one.

    Uninstalled it. Too much security permissions to give to an anonymous Chineese organization. Might be the MSS as far as I am concerned.

    I tried it a while ago. Using ADW right now. Might go back to LP+ for the widgets.

    Use colorize widgets with ADW. They are just like the lp+ widgets.

    Maybe there's a new version I haven't downloaded? I will check it out later. That would be sweet.

    Can somebody explain Go Launcher's business model? They don't sell anything. There are no ads (thank heaven). So, what do they get from us that makes it worthwhile for them?

    I don't see anything on their website that tells who they are, what they're financial model is, etc. No stories on AC about this either.

    Well I can't read Chinese but I still found out how Go Launcher (3g.cn) makes a living. Pretty solid business model, actually.

    "Currently, more than 70 percent of 3g.cn's revenue comes from advertisements. Deng Yuqiang, CEO of 3g.cn, said that with the deployment of the new strategy, the company will see increasing revenue from mobile reading, music, video and game services. "We hope music, game and reading services will contribute half of our total revenues within a year," said Deng."

    Not to be rude and sorry if it comes out like that, but why is this important to the subject? I just asked what people liked about Go Launcher?

    I'll tie it together this way: I like Go Launcher and will be happy if the company that makes it does not make money by harvesting any of my personal information.

    Go has some donate live wall papers. I'm actually considering buying the Sakura one because I LOVED it, but I don't want people to look at my phone and see all hot pink, haha, so I'll probably buy it so I can change it to like blue or something.

    I need to install all my Go stuff again, I've been just using stock Sense ever since I got my Tbolt, playing around with it.

    So does anyone using Go Launcher have a problem with widgets overlapping icons or what not? I am using a 5x5 grid for the homescreen and certain widgets I put on the screen overlap others or app icons. The same thing happens in the 5x4 grid as well. Is everyone just using the normal 4x4 to not have this problem?

    I have not switched to this launcher full time because of this so I am sticking with Launcher Pro as I can use 5x5 grid with no problems of overlapping or whatever.

    I fooled around with that setting but didn't see the need to cram so much into the screen. I didn't notice an overlap with the shortcuts and applications I loaded. I think Widgets require a set amount of space and some of the larger ones wouldn't play nicely in tighter grids. Anyhow, if I need more real estate for apps I can just add another screen so I didn't feel that I needed the tighter spacing.
