Even the theming was done in a way that it has no impact whatsoever on runtime performance.

But for full disclosure, here are my intended next steps for FTL, in no particular importance order, and definitely with no timeline or ETA associated:

- Fix the drawer always starting at "A". There's a guy always bitching about this
- Improve the swipe up and down actions to be more configurable (like launching apps and whatnot)
- On the theming side, find a way to change individual icons
- completely re-do the dock code to allow more stuff
- Add a configurable app filter, or some sort of means to build personalized app lists to use on the drawers

Notice that stuff like "horizontal scrolling drawers" is not on the list. Not that it won't be on the future, but I honestly don't consider it a priority. Also over-the-top effects are not, and will probably never be on the list.

Bottom line, apart from the items I mentioned, I'm very much pleased with FTL V3.

Cheers

i upfront apologize for being the BITCH in quote to the BOLDED part ;
- Fix the drawer always starting at "A". There's a guy always bitching about this

i am of course in favor of performance, as long as it doesn't bloat up (like my comment on GO Launcher)

i worship Launcherpro, and the only person so far that can match this is you.
thats what I honestly believe, and I am a mere person to help you in that direction

Sounds great lowveld!

May I just add one more thing to your list, an accelerated 2d drawer ;)

I think it's hard to see the icons in the 3d one.

And one last thing!

Remember to take some time off, go fishing with your kid or something and let us hang for a while. You totally deserve it!

Cheers!

Hey Lowveld, finally got the licensing issues mentioned previously Could only do it by getting Google play support to remove the purchased tag so I could buy it. Have just upgraded to V3 and it feels as speedy as ever . I have uploaded a couple of screenshots to show the icon size issue. One SS is ADW & the other is FTL. As you can see the icon sizes are strangely small, but the Widgets are Ok. The Screenshots are from an Atrix with a 960x540 screen. As others have suggested changeable icons would be welcome here. Thanks again for all your efforts and a speedy launcher.

+1 bigger icons would be great when choosing grid like 5x5

Would like this as well...

Also, seems to consume a lot of ram, it averages around 25mb for me...is that what others are seeing?

I have the same problem too.. Using 5 X 5 setting and all widgets gone after a shut off or restart.. Any fix particularly for this yet? Nice launcher anyhow =)

I noticed the app icon sizes small , and they dont match the widgets as well

nice picture you took to differentiate them

im on qHD (HTC EVO3D) as well and facing that same problem

on performance, its still speedy as hell regardless... Enjoy the scenery seems to be the best setting , anything else looks distorts the performance
