    LauncherPro?

    Hey guys,

    I am building a (P-)ROM for the A2, and I'm trying to make it as smooth as possible. The time has come for me to choose what launcher I want the ROM to come with. After hearing a bunch of good things about LauncherPro, I tried it... and LOVED it. It is super-smooth, has all the options I'm looking for, and is very configurable. However, the next day I noticed a weird bug- after I reboot and unlock my A2, it takes a good 15 seconds for LauncherPro to load up and show my homescreen. After that it will work fine and be zippy, but that weird 15 seconds of black screen is a deal breaker for me.

    So, for those of you that have used LauncherPro in the past, have you ever been plagued by the black screen of death? Have you been able to get around it?

    Also, what other launchers do you guys recommend? I'm looking for one that's as smooth as can be and also has a nice amount of options. PLEASE don't tell me GO Launcher

    Thanks!

    i've used launcher pro on the atrix, the galaxy s2 and my galaxy s3 and it is truly a great launcher. i've never experienced a delay or anything like that, so i'm really sure what would be causing it.

    as far as suggestions, i would also recommend ZEAM LAUNCHER. i've tried some others, but never liked them and always went back to launcher pro or ZEAM due to the smoothness. i'm sure others can chime in with suggestions. but, if it were me, i'd stick with one of these.


    Edit: AND.. Zeam Launcher is under a MB and still awesome.

    Hm, I think I found the culprit to the black screen... I disabled scrollable widgets in the general preferences (It's disabled by default) and all is well. So it's back to LP! Thanks a lot for the suggestion, I tried Zeam Launcher and it was also very nice.

    EDIT: Well actually I don't think that scrollable widgets are causing it. I think that some of the settings are just buggy for me, including notifications in the dock and possibly scrollable widgets.

    Honestly, Launcher Pro is pretty much dead. The author hasn't updated it in over a year and has pretty much stopped responding to forum posts. A few mods respond back with the same answer time and time again.

    LP was my main launcher for almost a year, but it started to lag and force close. I tried resetting the app and everything else I could think of, but never could resolve the issue. The author has stopped responding to requests and hasn't had a release in over a year. I use GO launcher now and it works the way I wish LP still did since I payed for the pro version.

    Hmmm. Have you tried clearing defaults once it is installed?

    To many times to count... had the issue on my N1 and my Atrix so it wasn't hardware related...

    Hmmm....I have experienced no problems with Launcher Pro. I realize that it's not being supported any longer (hasn't been for awhile), but it still works fine for me. I'm not sure which launchers are still actively being updated other than GoLauncher. There's always ADW (not my choice, but....). Shame that Nova launcher is ICS ... it's a great launcher.
