Hi snobrdinrtiste, could you please share some infos regarding clock and IP address widgets? Also battery level with numbers? Big thanks!
clock is mclock widget with kingdonnaz' theme
IP widget is called wifi widget by ken burger I think...available in market
the battery percentage is part of my own personal custom rom... working with task650 ... will prolly do a limited release/test for the wifi version soon

great find, but ill wait a couple of weeks.

the most annoying thing is that it keeps saying unexpected error in the notification bar and i wish we could set it to have at least 1 more row... 5 is not quite enough

This is how my app draw looks after a reboot

after turning it horizontal it fixes itself up

Hoping there will be more features coming soon

I like this one much better compared to adw and stock

Go Launcher HD is the best way for the moment to make your G-Tab 7.7 very fast.

I was surprised that Touchwiz UX is so so so laggy!!!

Thank you the Go Team

Default My opinions on some Launchers

All the customization options are gone in this HD version. Remember, this is a beta & I think these guys are awesome but it's not fully done yet.

I hate stock btw, it's waaaaaaaaaaay too slow, for now Go Launcher EX is the best in my opinion.

I bought SPB Shell 3D, it's cool & fast BUT: something's up with the graphics, they're kinda grainy, almost as if it's 16 bit color instead of 32. The biggest problem is it's so unstable. Almost unusable. I'm waiting for the next version to try it out.

I also have LauncherPro, it's not really that good for a tablet size since the icons stay small!

I've heard people say ADW is better but I haven't tried it out yet.

BTW, I don't carry my phone around with me anymore, I use my 7.7 as both phone and tablet (with bluetooth headset of course). Does anyone else use this thing as a phone or am I the only nut?

I use ADW.EX, which is definitely worth the buy. It runs smoothly, and doesn't have any bugs I've come across. I haven't tried GO Launcher so I don't know what features you require in your launcher, but I've been comfortable with ADW for a long time now.

If you look around here, lots of people use the tab as their phone. For me, even though it fits in pocket (at least, for most of my pants), it's still big enough that it feels awkward, and I don't want to step up to carrying a murse around, so it's normal phone for me, plus tablet as needed.

I've switched to it already from Go Launcher Ex which was pretty good on it's own to be honest but is much, much better.

Gone is the stupid dock left over from the portrait phone launcher days... this is a proper tablet launcher.

No problems at all here. No errors and HD Widgets work fine but would love the ability to hide apps like in ADWEX. Managing with folders right now.

Yes, but what bugs me is how this launcher only allows you to size the grid up to a maximum of 5 x 10!!

I have more real estate here than any dinky phone so how come I'm stuck with less than what LauncherPro, ADW, GO EX (10 x 10!), TW & probably others give me??

I'm sure the developers are working on a final version & I hope they listen to my feedback cuz I love it & really it's just that one thing that is bugging me.

This has become my default launcher on my 7.7. TW is horribly laggy, which is a huge surprise for me, coming from the SGS2 and Note. I tried ADW EX as well, but it looked "clumsy" on the 7.7. Go Launcher HD looks very polished and professional in comparison, so it stays and ADWEx goes.
