I like so many have used this app for years. Hands down one of if not the best. However @developer. the last few days I have noticed an issue With widgets, Google calendar and weather clock are having random issues and failing or not loading. If you remove it and reapply it works but will fail again. Please fix. Something changed with Google or a Samsung update. Over all still an awesome app

Great Launcher app, highly customizable from colors and fonts to themes and skins all the way to dock and status bar types and window transition animations to home screen and app drawer layouts and customizations. Highly recommended for anyone still running a phone using Android 4.1 or earlier. Really fun, satisfying, and efficient and most importantly reliable Launcher app. I've got mine running with an old school cynogen mod 9 ROM. I love it.

???? I have been using adw launcher for about 10 years. I have always thought it to be the BEST launcher on the market, with so many themes that are really nice without ever looking cheesy or child-like, and so many options and customizations, resulting in phone you can be proud for others to look at, and different from the rest. Lately, however, my adw settings are not enforced and not working, and I don't understand. Getting a lot of force closes also. What is going on here?
