User reviews of ADWLauncher EX
Was excellent. New update, while intentions were good, has issues. Force closes hourly with the annoying "send message to developer" message. You guys gotta get this fixed.. Droid Razr Maxx

I USED to love this launcher. Updated today, and now everything is FUBAR. My widgets can't be moved or added or deleted + now SimiClock just randomly disappears from my home screen. Everything was perfect before, now I have to yell at my phone because the things I want have stopped working correctly.

Hele fijne alternatieve launcher. Werkt niet goed met ICS.

The previous versions are great. In the last one you can´t hide the trash basket. Is ultra very very very annoying. You always delete things by mistake that are near of the top.

I had fully designed homescreen. After update everything was messed up, and I cant set stuff as they were. No more hidden trashcan option which was very handy when editing objects near it. Weather icon shrinked like 30% and it doesnt scale up. Icon touch effect cant be set invisible. If I set it invisible it turns automatically to yellow efect. **/*****

Was great Have used this launcher with 4 phones, and now with KitKat S5 Duos it crashes and has multiple widget issues. I wrote the developer with no response.Will try Go launcher for a while until I see a new update with functioning fixes I hope, I did pay for this after all.

Dropped support The point of the paid app was more features and extra support, but support was dropped fairly quickly. Not ok.

Orphanware Developer evidently no longer supports it. Switched to Nova Launcher, myself.

I have tried all of the launchers I always end back on ADW, it has just the right amount of options to make my Galaxy Note 3 more seamlessly amazing . It's great for the power user as well as the novice.

No updates, horrible support and crappy documentation I've used this for about 4 or 5 years. There are some great features here but without any updates (for over a year now), minimal documentation and no support, I'm done.I've had some weird crashes while trying to add widgets and to be honest, I'm sick of looking at that black status bar. Every other launcher (at least the ones I've tried) will make it transparent - and I like that. It's too bad ADWLauncher EX can't/won't make this an option. If it is then I call you to my other point; Crappy Documentation!
