Go Launcher.

Has decent folder organisation and customisation and runs fairly quickly.

No need to use a seperate app organiser type prog with that.

Go Launcher EX - Seems great.

LauncherPro is nice, but he hasn't updated it in months. Go seems to provide the same functionality (in a more innovative fashion) and it's free.

Zeam is nice but AFAIK it's been abandoned by the author, if you want something quick & simple (such as for a low-specced or small-screen device) then it's a good choice though.

If you don't mind paying wayyyy too much much, then SPW Launcher looks amazing. It's something like $20 though.

Otherwise yes Zeam is minimalist/simple by design missing lots of features the others have (on purpose).

nokeyslft: anyone tired launcher7?
good if you want windows look. The 1x1 tiles worked but the 1x2 tiles weren't great. Bought the app too? Removed adds. Tried it on HTC Wildfire.

I tried it and liked it, but the lack of decent widget options frustrated me so I went back to Zeam. I had the ad free version on the Huawei Ideos u8150 and while it ran fine when loaded up, every now and then it would unload while using a program and it took ages to reload again.

Hmm, my apologies, I could've sworn that it was Zeam that had gone on holiday for a long time, I admit that I haven't checked in the past couple of months though.

I've found Go Launcher to be very nice on the sensation. Have only used Launcher Pro previously. But until the dev finishes rewriting it I will trial other alternatives.

There isn't a version of Zeam with ads. If you were referring to my post, I meant the ad free version of launcher 7. Sorry for confusing sentence structure!
