Subscribed I was looking for one that disables wallpaper scrolling to test live wallpaper performance.

Edit: Awesome stuff, apart from Microbes, no stuttering when swiping between homescreens with the new scrolling behaviour.
Using a 5x5 layout, marvelous use of that large screen.

Nice icon btw

please add a scrollable "3-dock" mode like Go Launcher (and gestures if that's not too much work)

thanks!

I have to agree! I'm running CM9 on my D3, and really, the only thing that could make the experience better is having a scrolling dock! Downloading now, and thank you for the hard work!

yeah, gestures are very important for me too.
swipe down pulls the statusbar down and swipe up locks the screen...

Installed and running fine, excellent replacement launcher!

Please add more scrolling effects like cascading, cross fading...

A novice question, is this launcher gpu accelerated? Or it's relying on the force gpu option?

Wow excellent launcher! Nice work and thanks!

Just wondering if you could add the option to have the persistent google search thingy... I kind of got used to it.

Also the ability to stick your folders into the app drawer would be nice as well.
