Android App Spotlight: GO Launcher EX

GO Launcher EX

If you own an Android device, then you have most likely encountered many different 'home launcher' apps before, specifically the popular ones such as 'ADW.Launcher EX' and 'LauncherPro'. I have been testing and trying many different home launcher apps and the one I find the most easiest and fastest to use is GO Launcher EX. Let me explain a few points for you.

Description:
Extended version of GO Launcher, one of the most popular home application.

=About GO Launcher=
GO Launcher is the most popular home app in Android Market. It allows users to customize home screen, change themes, use smooth transition animation as well as various widgets and screen locks. It brings you a fresh and extraordinary mobile operation experience.

=Features=
- Thousands of personalized themes
- Various widgets and screen locks (weather, switcher, calendar…)
- Extremely smooth transition animation
- Smooth flipping operation
- User-defined folder to easily categorize apps
Many options in preferences to help you customize you phone!

Speed and Stability
GO Launcher EX is one of the fastest launchers out there that I have encountered. It is on par compared with 'ADW.Launcher EX' and 'LauncherPro'. In my time using it, rarely have I seen it lag or force close.

Customizable
GO Launcher EX certainly takes the award of being the most customizable launcher on the Android platform. It allows you to change and customize your own themes as well as change the background, edit the dock bar, change the icons' looks as well as giving your home screens many different animation effects. This is truly one powerful launcher. In the Play Store, you will find thousands of custom made themes just ready to be downloaded.

Support
You may not know it, GO Launcher EX has an extensive development team backing the project. Thus, many of your feature requests and bug reports gets addressed fairly quickly. The frequent updates just keep rolling in, which is a good thing. Since the start of the app craze, many users just love updating their apps. Perhaps its the feeling of finding out new features or getting some bugs squashed.

Cost
The 'Go Dev Team' has been working pretty hard in providing surprisingly a whole range of apps for the Android platform. What is more surprisingly is that all the apps are free in the Play Store. Of course, there are some paid themes which you can buy to support the development team.
