Android launcher showdown: LauncherPro, ADW, Zeam, GO Launcher and QuickDesk (Download Squad)

Jan 28th 2011 5:08PM Really nice round up! But there's one thing I really don't understand! Why is everybody calling Go Launcher a rip-off of Launcher Pro? I used Launcher Pro for some time but then had to look for another launcher because it got slower and slower, crashed often and also used too much space after some time. I stumbled over Go Launcher and tried it. There are some similar features and the icons also look similar, but apart from that it's a completely different app. It's much faster and didn't crash in the few weeks I'm using it yet. I really love it and the developers add new features much faster than the others. There's also a really slick iPhone like folder and rearrange feature in the app drawer that you didn't mention in the article.

I haven't tried Zeam Launcher and Quick Desk yet, but I have to agree that ADW is really slow. It also crashes several times a day.
