Sorry to resurrect this thread, but why start a new one when it's talking about the exact same thing? I just finished manipulating ssLauncher to make my Play look more similar to the PSP.
I left it on different setup for the Cover Page when using Landscape vs. Portrait so that I could make sure the icons would stay in the right places. That's why I have widgets in the lower corner portrait and not in landscape.
The camera, phone, and messaging icons take you directly to those apps, but the other icons link to other launcher pages. My camera app is 360Camera, the internet icon goes to a page of internet-based apps, the music leads to a media page with graphic and audio apps, phone and messaging are stock, then there's the game page, then instead of a settings menu, the last icon is for all the other apps.
Edit: I just hid the background on my weather app, and it looks even better!
