What's new in ADWLauncher EX? Now there are 5 different app drawer styles and effects, including 3D Nexus app drawer vertically scrolling and iPhone-like app drawer among other. What's more, there are different desktop transitions, faster presets mode, editable desktop icons and many more. As we said, ADW.Launcher strongest point was the scenery, that means, the appearance customization, take into account the amount of themes and plugins. This new release try to catch up improving what was its weakness: settings, transitions, effects and fast access.
Besides the new features, keep doing the old stuff. It allows you to change lots of features: icons, themes, backgrounds, among many others. ADW Launcher is a visual launcher, that’s is, it focuses on the scenery. For this reason, its defining feature is the great amount of free themes available. You also may customize drag&drop action buttons (gestures) to launch apps or to open folders, plus many other settings, especially regarding visual desktop appearance. However, it's slower than other launchers, and that goes against it. Other catches noticed are non-scrollable dock and the limit of 5 dock shortcuts. It has to be said that some of that things have been improved with ADW Launcher EX.
ADW.Launcher has been developed by Anderweb, a web/app developer who is being quite successful with ADW.Launcher. It's constantly improved with themes and plugins.
If you are into customizing your desktop and app drawer and you give more weight to that stuff we truly recommend you ADW.Launcher. Bear in mind that you will have to carry with a slower performance and fewer configuration options than other launchers.

I really like the customization. But, all the transitions and effects are arduously slow and choppy compared to other launchers I have tried. I don't know if it's just my phone or what, but other launchers don't have this problem for me. I'd really love t
