    I've been trying out some different launchers and I am having the same problem on all of them.

    When I go to the widget list, it looks like this....

    I've tried it on GO, ADW, Apex and a couple others.
    Is anyone else having this problem?

    Yes, I know there are issues with the "Launchers" , I had mentioned my son got ICS OTA last Friday night (a non-volunteer soaker and proud of it) He is using several of the "Go Apps" not the launcher however, GoSMS, Go Keyboard and GoPowerManager are all three(3) working no issues.

    GL looks the same on mine also. You can only see the text when you select the particular widget and its highlighted.

    Yeah Go SMS, Go Notification, Go Launcher (for the most part), are all working great on this ICS build. The widget thing is a small annoyance and I am sure they will address it soon enough, at least there is the work around.

    Edit: Spoke too soon, Go Notification is not working at all for me, no notifications on phone calls, SMS, or Gmail.

    I was bothered by this issue as well. After thinking about why this issue would exist, I came to the following conclusion. This problem exists because the stock launcher in ICS no longer has the widgets menu in the long press menu. The widgets menu in the stock launcher is now in located in the app launcher.

    Yet another neat "feature" from this "upgrade". I cannot wait for stable custom ROMs to start emerging.
