I am currently using LauncherPro. At first I didn't mind that there were keys that went unused (ie. phone), but now I want something different. What is everyone else using that you like? If I get the paid version of LauncherPro is there a way to get rid the unused keys.

I tried LauncherPro, Zeam, ADW, and finally setlled on Go Launcher EX.
Things I like about GoLauncher: customizing the dock, scrollable dock, screen animations, quick and responsive, gestures, resizing widgets.
Things I do'nt like about it: Icons in the app-drawer are HUGE, no way to use the standard app drawer; Dragging apps from the drawer into screens is a cumbersome process.
In the end, the deal-breaker for me is the Running tab of Go Launcher's app drawer. I can easily see all the apps I have running and close the ones I don't need.

On a side-note, does anyone know why adding shortcuts onto the rooted 1.1 home screens doesn't work? How to fix it? I have the same problem regardless of launcher: long-tap the home screen, select Add Shortcut, screen flashes black like it's loading something, then goes back to the home screen.

With launcherpro (what I use on both my nook and phone) you can change the keys on the bottom simply by holding a finger over them (both paid and free versions). They have options for what to do with that space for a quick press, long press and swipe. My bottom buttons are market, dropbox, maps, and browser. I turned off the scrollable bottom buttons. Hope that helps.

Thanks, that does help.

I was using Launcher Pro mostly because I use it on my phone and already paid for. When finally getting around to try and configure it, i.e. the dock shortcuts (or even shortcuts in general), it would just flick the screen black for a second and not give me any further options. I then loaded Zeam and Go Launcher EX and gave them both a shot. I think Zeam's minimalist setup would work for those who don't like the clutter, but Go is happy medium. I don't like a bunch of icons and junk cluttering my screens, so I use the dock for my most used apps. Helps with battery consumption since I don't really use widgets either...

I started out with Launcher Pro because that's what I have on my phone, but didn't like it on tablet. Switched to Zeam and I like the minimalistic approach much better for NC.

Home Switcher!

I would suggest installing home switcher from the market and play with all the launchers you can handle. It is insane how simple home switcher is to use and you can jump back and forth between launchers as you choose.

I have ADW & ADW EX, go launcher, HeLauncher, Launcher Pro, and Zeam. I probably switch to a different launcher once a week. And your settings are saved when you switch between launchers.

I use ADW launcher EX, I already paid for it for my phone and I really can't find any comparison in terms of functionality and customization. I'm running cm7 nightlies now, but I had it on my rooted 1.1 as well.

Same with me.

I tried Go Launcher, as it was the only I could figure out how to make the scrollable dock work, but the app drawer font for each app was wrapping the text in a undesirable way. I couldn't find the setting to turn this off (or reduce the font size)... so I loaded Zeam and uninstalled LP and Go.

Let me ask you guys as My Nook should be in today. If I root it with Autonooter, what version of Android is it leaving on the tablet?

I use ADW since its what I have on my phone and it works well enough. I habent actually tried any others but after reading this thread I may have to give them a whirl.

I recommend zeam for sure, I tried golauncher, adw, zeam, and launcherpro, zeam just seemed to be the best launcher to me.

Does anyone know of a launcher, or just a program/widget, that will bring back the ability to see the last 6 (8 with froyo) programs you used screen.

Basically I miss the ability to long press the home button to do that, it Is missing on the Nook.

Can anyone point me to a guide for Zeam? I accidentally added the Open App action twice on the same screen. I don't know how to edit or delete them. I don't even understand how to customize. Can anyone point me to a manual?

Thanks.
