***EDIT*** haven't had great luck with this on XT720, widgets don't work. It's great for other phones! Maybe try it to see if I am wrong.

That's the best launcher I've ever had. Light, fast, smooth, and really nice. Thanks!

I've been using Holo for about a month now....was waffling between it and Zeam after going a long time on Go Launcher. I was looking for a way to simplify my desktop into one screen with folders that feature my most used apps and trying to get a memory use reduction out of my launcher. Zeam was doing the memory thing well, but the folders were absolutely bland and unappealing, not to mention they wouldn't close after selecting an app to use. Holo does all those things well, but my only gripe is I can't seem to keep it in memory. After using a memory hungry app on my phone for an extended amount of time, the launcher has to restart when going back home. I guess I should stop expecting "smartphone" performance out of my Milestone and realize it's a touchscreen phone that can do some smart things....eventually.
