    ADW Launcher actually does have the ability to use Pinch Zoom on the home screen. I love that Feature.

    I tried it last week and couldn't find the screens option. Ppl were complaining about that too.
    Other than that ... good launcher.

    I tried it but SO missed the "swype up" feature that LauncherPro has that I switched back to LauncherPro.

    Just to set some things straight:

    • ADW.Launcher does support pinch to get a home-screens overview
    • It supports up to 7 screens - Just select "Menu"/"Edit" and you can swap/move screens delete screens and add new screens
    • What does swipe up in Launcher Pro do? In ADW you can pick one of:
      • do nothing
      • go to home screen
      • goto home; if alredy on home, show previews
      • show previews
      • open/close drawer
      • open/close notifications
      • goto home; if oalready on home, open notifications
      • open/close dock
      • start any arbitrary app

      oh, and it's in "Settings" / "System Settings"


    anything missing?
