Absolutely phenomenal home replacement. So thrilled to see this in development again and you are absolutely nailing it with features done right!
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!
ADW is back, and better than ever! And now, we have come full circle. The original best is back, for the final round. No signs of ring rust here. Just the BEST desktop and app drawer effects, the BEST theme support, and wowawee is it FAST. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, the return of the king of launchers; ADW 2 POINT 0. (Now, go back and read all that again, except this time imagine ADW is the Brock Lesnar of launchers, and read it in Paul Herman's voice. It's like that.)
Didn't think a launcher would come along that I'd like more than Nova but I think this has done it. The key is that it has many of the best Nova features like gestures and swipe actions for the icons, but also has its own unique features like a widget editor and filters for icons. Just missing the ability to hide icons in the launcher.
I see a lot of (recent) reviewers complaining about a "lack of" things that are actually included. Take five minutes to learn navigating the settings menu. ADW 1 was the number one replacement on my old gingerbread Droid. ADW 2 Is a solid contender for my current default home preference. Wonderful work and good to be enjoying your product again. Will purchase premium if stability is satisfactory after a fair trial period.
Great, but still needs a bit of work. I'd consider dumping Action Launcher 3 if only there was a static, customizable bar at the top like AL3. There's nothing else worth putting there other than the Pixel pill widget and time, but they both suck here. Love that this actually implements the 7.1.1 shortcuts though. And I wouldn't say it's exactly worth paying the premium as of yet.
