Aco i use go (launcher , sms ,contacts,keypad) and it works like a charm. There is Nova launcher if you use Ics.

Go launcher is no doubt the most complete, though I like very much Ftl launcher too, which is a bit faster on low end devices. It just lacks swiping to launch apps, but you can download jet launcher for free and launch up to 12 apps by swiping

Launcher pro is my favorite, it requires little resources with customization

For speed and smoothness, I recommend Nemus launcher launcher. This launcher is very fast and have a very low resource consumption.

Previously while on gingerbread I used ADW because of the many options and hiding of the dock bar. I tried other popular launchers, but didn't like them - either too many features that I didn't need or no possibility to remove the dock bar. But I got the impression that GO Launcher had smoother homescreen scrolling.

Now on ICS I use Apex launcher and like it a lot.

What a small forum, never seen you post outside the DS place

Yeah, I can recommend FTL Launcher!
