ADW.Launcher is a full feature, highly customizable home screen replacement for your phone. It offers smooth performance. Some of the customizable features include:
- Show/Hide Status Bar, Icon Labels
- Customizable Grid sizes (rows and columns)
- Dock size (but not scrollable)
ADW Launcher seems to be limited to 7 screens. But how many do you really need? The screen transitions are smooth and looping is supported. There does not appear to be choices for screen transitions. However, different screen transitions are more of a ‘whiz bang’/’eye candy’ and do not add to the functionality.
I had no problems setting up ADW.Launcher and customizing it for my usage. I see it is as a high quality, highly customizable home screen replacement that will serve folks extremely well.
