Mobo Launcher has really surprised us. There lots of great launchers with added-value features. However, there are just a few able to threat to the throne of Go Launcher EX or Launcher Pro. From our point of view Mobo Launcher is one of them, we truly believe it.
First off, it divides homescreen in three parts (from bottom to top): dock, groups area (apps) and widget area. Thus, first you find a dock that reminds HTC built-in dock. It's swipable so you just need to slide it to add as many shortcuts as you want. We've just found two catches: the default dock cannot be modified (you can just swipe and start a new one) and you cannot change icons on the dock.
Groups area is the most interesting part. You can hide it by sliding down, show it half-way sliding up or show it full screen (app drawer view) by sliding it up again. The middle view is the most interesting: it divides apps in groups that you can edit: default groups are games, apps, system, newest, favorite and search. However, you can remove and add groups at your whim. What's more, there are some transitions for this original app drawer.
The top slice is the widgets area. Mobo Launcher comes up with some default Mobo Widgets like creative clock, voice search, one key clean... Although, you'll have to download some of them (Mobo Weather, File Manager).
Besides the distribution, the launcher has been set in a clear and good-looking layout. It runs smoothly, with no lag even when transitions. In a nutshell, a really really good launcher worth to give a go.
