If you are an Android user, you are probably familiar with ADWLauncher, which is one of the most popular home screen replacement apps for Android. Why would anyone want to replace their default launcher? The simple answer is – convenience. Third party launchers like ADW and Launcher Pro support more homescreens, more icons per screens, dockbars, more widgets, gestures and other convenient features.
As mentioned earlier, ADWLauncher is already one of the more popular home-screen replacements available on Android. ADWLauncher EX takes things to the next level by adding oodles of cool features, while achieving huge performance improvements.
Launcher EX features five app drawer styles – the default vertical one, a new smoother vertical drawer, the cube style implemented by Launcher Pro, the horizontal drawer seen in Galaxy phones, and a new flingable continuous horizontal drawer. The best thing is that irrespective of the style you are using, scrolling through apps (even when you have hundreds of them) is crazy smooth.
ADWLauncher EX also ships with numerous dazzling transition effects to wow your friends with. There are eight of them at the moment, and I love almost all of them. Once again, the transitions are fast and smooth and never get in your way. Check out the video below to see some of them in action.
Techie Buzz Verdict
Launcher EX is not a freeware. It’s priced at â‚¬2.50, which works out to approximately $3.50. In my opinion, the performance benefits alone make ADWLauncher EX worth buying. However, if you need more reasons, you should be pleased with the editable desktop icons for applications, shortcuts and folders, super cool transition effects, and flexible app drawers. As far as I am concerned, ADW Launcher EX is the best launcher/home screen replacement app for Android.
