Absolutely phenomenal home replacement. So thrilled to see this in development again and you are absolutely nailing it with features done right!
Don't be deterred by the negative comments. I've tried most of the popular launchers out there and nothing comes close to the work and thought put in here. This is the best launcher app at the moment. The ability to customize the widgets is freaking brilliant, intuitively easy to create and customize. No noticable battery drain over NOVA Prime. I don't understand the negative comments I've read. I guess some users just don't take the time to read instructions. I'm so glad I didn't let any of them deter me from downloading AND PURCHASING this amazing, highly customizable launcher. Great job!!!!!!!
I have been an avid user for several years of the first version of this launcher - both the free and paid versions - and was delighted to see that an updated successor had been released! Overall I am very happy with all of the new changes, except for *one* that really, really bothers me, so much so that I took off a star, and I have recommended ADW launchers to many people over the years, as I am a huge fan. Perhaps I have simply not figured out how to accomplish it, but in the original launcher you could assign a folder a unique icon of its very own rather than the new way which is simply a collection of ways to show the icons of the programs inside the folder. I use that special-folder-icon feature a lot as I would pick an icon that represented what apps were contained in the folder, like music, system tools, excetera, and I can't do that anymore. Would that be a terribly difficult feature to implement? Or have I just not figured out how to do it yet?
In all honesty the new update is pretty terrible. I used to be able to add shortcuts to certain actions very easily but know its all confusing. And don't even get me started on how my home screen looks now, I wanted a launcher that was going to look and act different from the defualt phone launcher. Now, its nearly indistinguishable from the standard launcher. How do I undo this update? The company that makes the app also might be writting fake reviews, thats pretty shadey.
Overall I feel that it is the best launcher if you want to transform your phone into any older Android version like Android Gingerbread to lollipop or KitKat to Jellybean the latest version Android nauget then you should install disc launcher it also provides many other features like you can change the app icon and set whatever photo you want to keep. Show Thumbs up to this launcher keep up the good work
Very great launcher! I have use the Nova Launcher and the Action Launcher 3 and I totally loved both launcher but suddenly when I saw ADW Launcher 2 and tried it out, I was like COOL! ADW Launcher really changed my mind and switched to this AOSP-based launcher. I think I will keep this launcher not just for a few days, weeks, months nor days! I'll keep it forever!
