Extra functions for a small consideration
Launcher Pro isn’t just a pretty face, though, it’s also fleet of foot. Swap to it from Motoblur, f'rinstance, and you will be shocked how much faster your Motorola handset reacts.
Get more docks than the Thames Estuary
Bung the developer $2.99 via PayPal - Market payment is coming soon - and you get a code to unlock some extra functions such as widget re-sizing and access to a selection of HTC Sense-style live widgets. None of these are really essential, and the text in the social network widgets is too small, but at £1.82 with multiple handset support it’s still a good deal.
If you're worried about how to swap back and forth between launchers, download Home Switcher, a tiny app that lets you switch between all the launchers you have installed and set whichever one you want as the default. ®

To all those moaning about expiry
It was a problem for a small number of users which the dev fixed and apologised for. It's not like it was supposed to cause you all that hassle and please stop being dramatic and saying it bricked your phone. Bricking implied that it was unfixable when in fact it was easy to fix.
What's not to like here? 95% is well deserved.
Now...where's the iphone version...oh wait.
I like these 300 word app reviews, they actually give you some real detail about what they do and how well they work, better than than the usual 50 wd "round-ups" which do little more than tell you something actually exists.
Hope the author will get around to picking a best "notes" app in the near future, there are dozens to choose from.
