Editors' review

GO Launcher EX enhances your Android experience, replacing the default launcher with a fantastic new environment that supports thousands of different themes and widgets, sophisticated screen transitions, easier app management, and many other UI customizations. The only downside to using this app is that to enjoy all its features and get rid of the persistent ads, you have to upgrade to the paid version.

Pros

Creative customization options: With more than 10,000 themes, 27 screen transition effects, and 19 original GO widgets, GO Launcher EX can totally change the way your home screen looks. What's more, you can easily group apps into different folders, whether you do it through the auto-classify feature or manually.

Solid performance: Given how many visual changes and effects it introduces, you'll be impressed by how smoothly this launcher runs even on an older device. Screen transitions are graceful, multiple widgets coexist on the home screen without slowing down the system, and the search function retrieves results quickly.

Loaded with features: Apart from its nice visual improvements, this launcher includes enhanced system features such as an App Manager that lets you uninstall apps more quickly, GO Market integration for apps not available in the Google Play store, advanced gestures, and multi-touch for accessing functions more quickly.

Cons

Not as free as it seems: Many themes and transitions as well as nice features like Side Dock, Gestures, and Security Lock need to be unlocked. You will need to pay up if you want to enjoy this app to the fullest.

Vexing ads: If you don't unlock the paid version, you'll have to put up with constant home screen ads.

Takes a while getting used to: While it uses essentially the same layout and mode of operation as the default Android launcher, you need some time to explore its many settings and customization options.

Bottom Line

If you're not happy with what the default Android launcher offers, GO Launcher EX is a versatile, feature-rich option. And if you're willing to spend some money, you can really get a home screen that perfectly matches your needs.

    "Go Launcher is the crest of all the great GO products!"

    Version: GO Launcher EX 2.67

    Pros

    I have been using GO Launcher since my first Galaxy S and now with my Galaxy S II, I love the customization ability of all of their apps and they continue to improve.

    Cons

    Only con may be that some functionality of the app may not work on all models of Android phones. With my S II, I can not get continuous vertical scroll in the app tray, horizontal continuous yes but not vertical. To me a very small gripe for an overall excellent program!

    Summary

    To me the GO family of products are the best replacer apps available, and all are FREE. You can pay for themes and extensions if you can't find what you want in the basic program,but they include a range of choice, you can even create your own with them!
    I think that the GO products give exactly what many get Android for, great choice and fantastic functionality!!! I highly recommend them!
