ADWLauncher Ex Updated; Brings Tons Of New Features and ICS Compatibility

ADWLauncher EX is one of the most popular launcher available for Android devices. The EX/the paid version of ADWLauncher was released nearly an year ago in the market. When it was released, ADWLauncher Ex was no doubt the best launcher available in the Android market. However, with the passage of time, and due to the lack of updates from the developer, GoLauncher Ex became the de facto home screen replacement app for Android users.


However, the developer of ADWLauncher Ex AnderWeb has released a new major update for the app in the Android Market so as to celebrate the first anniversary of the app. The developer has been hard at work since the last few months to add certain new and much requested features to the launcher.

Below is the full change-log of the update-:

A new unified Dock bar with both the combined superpowers of the previous ones:
  • Easily drag and drop icons into it.
  • Unlimited icons support with paginated scrolling
  • Options stretch, scale, show reflections, change the background image…
  • Easy icon management by double tapping them.
  • Action to show/hide the dock at a glance via gestures/launcher actions
Easier and more user friendly folders.
  • Drag a desktop icon over another one to auto create a new folder
  • Visual representation of folder contents with theming support
  • Options to choose how the folder contents scroll and behave like you do with the app drawers
  • Single/multi row auto fitting support
New desktop management system while moving items.
  • Easier visualization of desktop and drag operations
