Many of you may not have the luxury of enjoying a stock or simplified launcher due to those pesky customized UI skins, but one of the better launchers in the game has just come back with a new update that’s sure to make many users happy. The latest ADW.Launcher update brings the software version to 18.104.22.168 and brings pretty much a new ummm…. “everything”— whatever that means. The hope is that there are new themes and even more customizations to make even the pickiest owner happy. As expected, users will be able to do anything from resizing widgets to developing specialized app folders and all.
The app is compatible with Android 1.6+ devices, so that means that all users looking for a solid alternative have no excuse but to give the latest update a try today.
Now, as catchy as my title may sound, all of us HTC owners can think of a more and to the point, (vulgar) thing to say about the Sense UI. Believe me I wrote a few different tittles that said exactly what I was thinking, but alas, this is still a publication and I must refrain from being vulgar, no matter how called for, it really is.
I’ve had the HTC Evo Shift 4G for about a year and a half now. I really do like the phone. Excellent hardware for what I need, and I’ve never had any major issues with it, that didn’t involve the Sense UI. I’ve had to replace it twice, once when it was stolen, and the second time I droped it and broke the screen. I would like to say that it still functioned like it was brand new. It had a screen protector over the screen when it broke, so I never lost any of the glass pieces, which allowed it to still work for another 3 months, when I could afford to replace it. My beef is in no way with the phone, or its quality, it is a solid piece of hardware, in my opinion. Sense on the other hand is half-crap, half-decent start.If you want to hear more and find out my solution to the Sense UI, continue reading on past the break.
If you haven’t heard of ADW Launcher then you are either new to the Android OS or you don’t use your Android phone for much. ADW Launcher is probably one of the more famous of the custom home launchers available and has been used in some of the more famous ROMS out there, like CyanogenMod. The free version has been around for a while but it wasn’t until a year ago that Anderweb released a pro version of his famous launcher known as ADW Launcher EX. It had everything one loved about the free version, however added some new cool features.
Well, today marks a big day for ADW Launcher EX as it is its one year birthday celebration, and just in time to for Google’s 10 Billion App Download Extravaganza. With its birthday, the launcher comes with some major upgrades. Also in celebration of the Android Market’s milestone, the launcher is available for just $0.10. While normally it is available for roughly $3.32 (Euro Conversion) this makes the premium launcher a steal.
For those of you that are interested in replacing your current launcher or were holding off on purchasing this one, I would recommend everyone going to the Android Market link below to check it out because $0.10 is a steal for this.
