There are plenty of alternative Launcher applications for Android for those that are bored with their default Android launcher options. Many have nice and snazzy UIs, widgets and extra functionality. During my time with Android I have cycled through a few; Launcher Pro and ADWLauncher being two of the most popular in the market.
I decided to try out something new ever since I upgraded to a custom Gingerbread (2.3.4) ROM. This is when I found GO Launcher EX.
“Yet another Launcher” – I thought.
I installed and started messing around with the Launcher settings and configuring it to the way I prefer. What I found were some very nice transition effects and customization options. Whilst there were also an abundance of custom themes available from the market. I settled on a Honeycomb theme, and with a few tweaks my Android experience was yet again somewhat different whilst staying consistent.
One thing I would recommend for those trying out GO Launcher EX is their Calender GOwidget, which is pretty awesome. It gives all the functionality of the Android calender in the widget itself. Very convenient for those that live forever in their calenders.
