We all know how popular and awesome GO Launcher already is– but the maker now has a new launcher up its sleeves for the masses to try out called Next Launcher. It’s a 3D-based launcher which has full 3D elements and 3D effects, while featuring items like an unlimited screen layout, stereoscopic screen preview and of course, those fancy 3D widgets that compliment the 3D screen. Essentially– Next Launcher is GO Launcher in full 3D— and who doesn’t want to see a cool 3D launcher to cover up their awful skin on their Android device?
The new launcher is up for all Android 2.2+ devices, but will run you about 16 bucks— which might be a bit hefty for some. Still– the launcher is intriguing enough, so if you’re willing overlook the steep price and give it a try, head on down to the Play Store today and give it a try.

One of the best launchers available is now available for Android 3.0+ tablets. The GO Launcher development team has developed an tablet-specific version called GO Launcher HD. While the launcher is currently in beta, there are some nifty highlights you can find in the launcher. For starters, there is the given ability to change your grid size in your various homescreens. Also, the launcher is incredibly fluid and smooth, which means transitions won’t be as choppy as some customized skins out there.
Although it’s currently in beta, GO Launcher HD is indeed available— though not in the Android Market at this time. If you fancy trying out having a new look to your homescreen, hit up the download link below. Don’t forget to let us know how it works out for you in the Comments section below or in our Forums.

A few days ago we gave you a rundown of LauncherPro — a great custom launcher for the Android OS. Well, there’s a fairly new entry into the custom launcher game, and Go Launcher EX is currently one of AppBrain’s hottest downloads. Is it better than LauncherPro? Is it the custom launcher you’re looking for? Read on.
