Well it seems to work ok on my laptop (The icons seem to "wrap" properly), except of course for the toolbar at the bottom disappearing which you obviously noticed. The resolution on my laptop is 1366x768 (16x9 resolution).

On my desktop with 2 monitors (one at 1920x1200 and one at 1280x1024) it displays on the smaller monitor and the icons don't "wrap", they just disappear off the screen (I didn't know about the scrolling you can do with the right mouse button but I'll have a look and see if that works tomorrow).

This was my reasoning behind using a config file as a stopgap for the moment, this way we could manually configure the resolution and number of the monitor we want to display on, which will ensure the program works as intended, which would give you time to sort out a more universal solution.

Might I also suggest having a red x in the top right to close the LaunchPad quickly, something along the lines of this (although smaller of course) :

Also, it might be nice to have a spanner icon when selecting a folder, then you could have the rename/re-order/etc options displayed after that. A spanner icon on the top right beside the red x might be a nicer look rather than the toolbar at the bottom too? Might also help with the sizing problems you see in my screenshot.

I was wondering if you can code an option for laptops too which would let us use the two-fingered scrolling in newer laptops to scroll the icons, like the actual Launchpad does. Obviously that's not a priority but maybe a nice authentic touch for later :)

I also decided to change my wallpaper to make the whole thing look even more authentic, feel free to use the pic for demo purposes (only if you want to of course ;) ):

Again, totally loving this app, it's definitely the best clone I've seen so far and seems to have A LOT of potential!!

Just thought of another nice design idea after looking at the dot on the bottom, you could have one of the reveal options be like the notification on android, i.e. The Launchpad scrolls down while fading in when opening and slides back up while fading out when it closes...or something like that. Might be sexy :)

Another screenshot for you, the program works just as well overlayed on video (XBMC) and looks damn sexy too:

To keep the Mac effect going, I found this program called Taskbar Color effects which includes a shadow effect which seems to work better than the TB Shadow app. The TB Shadow app had a bug for me where if you had multiple displays it would float in the centre of one monitor, this Color Effects app works just fine.

Here's a screenshot from my monitor in full 1920x1200 using all the apps from above :)

Lookin nice, Just wondered is there a way you would be able to enable a shortcut to open the LaunchPad? Then we could have an icon in the dock like OSX does :)

Right now i'm working on all kinds of different start up techniques
including Shortcuts, HotCorners and Multi-touch gestures with synaptics touchpads

synaptics seems to work pretty well :)
feels just like a macbook

Is that like 2 finger scrolling to move about in the launchpad? (I have a Dell L501X laptop so I can test the synaptic stuff for you :) )
