I like so many have used this app for years. Hands down one of if not the best. However @developer. the last few days I have noticed an issue With widgets, Google calendar and weather clock are having random issues and failing or not loading. If you remove it and reapply it works but will fail again. Please fix. Something changed with Google or a Samsung update. Over all still an awesome app

always had this, always loved it. paid for it. but using it with icons from flight lite opens the flight lite app info and options when i go to force stop apps the icon is set to overlay. already identified adw 1 as the problem with that app's author. don't see an update for this one that might fix the problem. also clicking and dragging icons from the app draw and dragging them to the top of the screen to uninstall doesn't work. just makes the icon dissappear.

I have tried so many launchers and always come back to this one. I have no cons. The customization is endless. I have used this for years, it's the first thing I do when I get a new phone. Pros, I love the transitions and being able to customize the home screen icons from label to picture. That's just to name a few. Awesome!

Hands down the best launcher I've used on Android. Ive used many but keep coming back to this as default. Guess I missed the memo that this branch in no longer in development so ill have to try version 2. thanks for a great 6 years.

Specially I liked the option to lock desktop and apps with pin. To put folder names, double tap the folder. Don't understand why the backup can't be renamed as the base adw launcher does.

adw launcher 2 is way better. kept adw launcher 2 installed for years. its great but the thing about it that makes me stay...the customizing of individual icons, being able to make round/rounded from gallery. no other qpp does this. makes me wonder why this version i paid for has a worse custom icon editor. adw 2 feels well put together, this feels hollow and sped thru.

Have used this app for years but it will randomly decide it wants to close every time I use the back button and reverts back to stock android theme. Eventually it will ask me if I want to use one or use always and it will fix itself for a while.

I purchased this and have used it for years through different phones. It's easy to use, dependable and more customizable than most. I have tried many but always come back to this one.

Was working fine for years, then recently stopped working as a default home, all of my widgets are gone, and I can't install most of them again, as its says "app is not installed on your phone" Please fix that issue.

installed this launcher because it looked so cool but after a few minutes it started crashing as i was setting it up. i just managed to get a refund and uninstall before i was stuck with paying for it. if the developer sorts this out i will buy this again and hope it works properly. if you are going to buy and install this be careful.

So I have had this launcher app since my 2013 Moto X and I love it. I'm currently still using it with my Moto X Pure edition from 2015 but am looking to upgrade to a Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Will this launcher be compatible with the newer device? I've had Motorola for years now and I'm scared to switch but in desperate need of a new phone. I still want it to look like what I'm accustomed to though.

The best launcher ever made. So sad when they stopped developing it. Then today I find the developer has a new version availabke, but we must pay again to register it? Pay twice for one app? As much as I love the app, I won't pay again for it when I already bought precious version.

I love this launcher. Needs more regular updates though. The most recent update cuts off the top from my dock icons (can't seem to fix it).

THE BEST phone home interface EVER. All my phones have it and I can restore my interface to another phone! Incredible app organizing features too!

Was temporarily fixed, tried to use Android Pro Widgets and caused it to open, but force back to stock Launcher. Going to Uninstall and reinstall, see if that helps, bummer can't use my other paid for apps tho'... 😥

I've had adw for years, and i love it. The only thing i have to complain about is the wallpaper scrolling no longer works. I'm issuing Samsung Galaxy s8 running android 9. Can this be fixed? I really liked that feature.

This is one of the best launchers I've ever used. I find myself returning to it frequently after having used a few different others. All the ADW launchers are good in my opinion. I highly recommend trying them out.

Kev. J. Dec 9, 2019     

You should really make activities available in both Adw 2 and Adw Ex for other apps such as Zooper and Kustom. You profess freedom in customization, that should include the mentioned ability. Tons of people still use ADW 2/EX because of this. Please don't make us have to either go to Nova Launcher or go back to Nova Launcher.

It's been fun with option overload, endless hours of constant changing back and forth! Well done.

I. I. Aug 9, 2020     

Love it! Been using for years now. BUT latest S9 software update (Aug 2020) has disabled wallpaper scrolling. ADW setting is checked correctly. Hey developers... any assistance??

Phi. W. Jun 8, 2019     

most recent update made the app doc and status bar transparent instead of black... kinda hard to use with white icons now. can you fix this?

Jos. R. J. Sep 13, 2019     

I have had this launcher since it came out and it is the best hands down and anyone who complains just doesnt know how to use it; it it just flawless i come back to it no matter what launcher comes out and customisations are endless. Best launcher ever....

Yeh, i know it's 15 years old but, it's all i need and the only one i use. Ultra fast, well thought out and reliable. Thanks!

Used to be awesome. Crashes all the time now. Please fix!
