downloading right now, then testing, will post results.

Many thanks for this i always wanted 7 Screens.


edit: working. 7 Screens!
So what did you mean with "'Prettier' Animations & more 'Friendly' feeling"? I cant see a difference.
For me, its just like the Stock-Launcher but with 7 Screens and that is everything i want

Again, many thanks for this!

edit2: not sure, but i think i just saw the prettier animation. the little slide while changing the screens?
Its a nice addition!

I find the changing of screens by dragging a little harsh hence I modified it. If you used iPhone/iTouch you know what I mean by harsh.

Glad you like it!
