If you're using a iPhone, Windows Phone or BlackBerry device you don't even have a chance to say it's weird. I used it but it does require additional work to replace my favorite launchers. It's beta so I really can't complain. But as a long time Android user I'm surprised yet again when it comes to the flexibility of Android.

Thats the brilliance of Android. If you don't like the launcher that came with your phone, change it. If you don't like the stock email, music or video app, change them. Choice is good.

Why would you buy something you don't like in the first place?!

I love my SGS3, but there are better options than TouchWIZ.

So why don't you just buy a phone that has "better options than TouchWIZ"?!

If you could buy your favorite car brand new and it was perfect in every way BUT had one flat tire, would you buy it and change the tire or would you settle for a lesser car with a different tire?

Downloaded, used, crashed...many times. I know my Optimus G can handle this app, but it has crashed 5 times in the last 3 minutes.

I might start using it when it becomes stable--it's very smooth and cool when it works! For now I'm sticking with Lightning Launcher.

I'd have to try it before I judge this one, but what about the left-handed user?

I gave it a shot, but it's way too simplistic for my liking..
