GO Launcher v2.87 Beta.. just came out.. highly recommended!

The last one was great.. but this one takes the smoothness level to a whole new level.

My home screen is cluttered with icons.. but is finally stutter free !

Just installed. Very smooth indeed.
Do a long press on home screen ... menus are now more GUI as well.

I still prefer ADW for gingerbread and Apex for ICS roms. Seems like go launcher always sucked extra battery on my devices.

Wow its definitely a LOT faster on my Note.

The only thing that bugs me is the smooth/slow transition when launching apps. Compared to Apex in which the apps launch very quickly. It's like Go launcher is almost toooo smooth in that respect.

I'll also monitor battery use via "bad assbattery monitor" since the last version definitely used more battery than other launchers.

It is my favorite launcher even though I switched to Apex the last week. I'll give Go another try

I just installed the beta and I don't notice any difference at all. That being said, go launcher is my favorite Gab launcher and definitely smoother than all of them except touchwiz.

Take a read thru the description on the blog, all the changes are there.

Namely, the major change I like is the new method for adding shortcuts, widgets, etc. Long press any empty area on the screen and instead of the ugly menu, a list is displayed at the bottom.

Also, the app drawer (the screen that shows the list of apps) is also much better.

Is it more fluid/smooth/faster? Eh...

It could still be better but its never going to be as smooth as IOS due to how Android works vs IOS. Android physically moves each pixel around on the screen using 'math' to determine where each pixel should be drawn, one pixel at a time, then draws the frame, repeating frame by frame where as IOS uses pre-processed pictures in rapid succession similar to how film on a projector works.

It is smooth. I have noticed some lag coming back to the home screen from go SMS. It takes awhile to populate the icons then its fine.
