I've been using this launcher since it was released, and it's been fantastic so far. It manages to keep all of the good stuff that's in android 2.2 while still allowing you to setup the homescreen so that your g-tab actually feels like a tablet.

Excellent launcher. Coming off Launcher Pro I felt I was taking a chance on it however the reputation of the author's ROM(s) put my mind at ease. Once I loaded it I was sold. Don't get me wrong, Launcher Pro is a way nice launcher but this one fits the "tablet" bill much better. For those who think they will really miss the Launcher Pro widgets I recommend you take a peek at Colorize Widgets. Very "Launcher Pro LIke" in their operation and appearance. Honestly, it was the one thing that almost pushed me back to Launcher Pro on the tablet......fortunately Colorize fit the bill. Now I couldn't be happier.

I tried this on my stock 4349 with a market fix. I had it lock up when I rebooted I was stuck at the tnt logo. I had to do a recovery I soon want to try anew rom and will try to reproduce the pproblem again. Could have been some other problem but rigging after I installed so has me worried ATM.

Not for me. The default swipe up and down action causes parts of the system to lock up. The menu keys and back keys stop working, some apps won't launch, and the quickest way out is to reboot. It's a known problem over on XDA for stock based ROMs.

TNTL 4..4 - VTL.Launcher 1.6.2

It would be nice to assign swipe up/down to do nothing.
