I snorted when I read the headline of this story about TSF Shell Pro on Droid Life. $17 for a launcher? Yeah, I think I'll pass.
Then I watched their demo video on YouTube:
That is nothing short of incredible. The ability to add apps to a quick launch drawer, easily create folders and add apps to them and to move multiple apps between screens or folders is a very unique and creative spin on replacement launchers.
I really like the looks of the animated widgets and floating objects, but I know I'd get sick of them quickly. Again, it's a very creative
Though the Market listing says that TSF Shell will run on Froyo and above, I'm going to look in to how well this launcher runs on OS versions prior to ICS. It seems that hardware acceleration would be a requirement for this launcher replacement to do all of that magic, and do it smoothly.
If you've got $17 in your pocket and you aren't going to spend it on MLB At Bat 12 then TSF Shell Pro looks to be the most features packed, creative launcher to ever come along.
