    Question ADWLauncher EX - What's so great about it?

    Hi all. I was checking out the 10-cent deals at the Android Market and noticed that ADW Launcher EX is listed. I've never been a fan of ADW Launcher, and GO Launcher just didn't work with me, so I'm currently still on Motoblur (if it can be called that) on my A2. I have a few questions about ADWLauncher EX:
    • How great is it? I want something that is very customizable, while not being extremely complicated.
    • How smoothly does it run?
    • Are there any good themes for it
    • Does it support scrollable/resizable widgets?
    • Compared to the free launchers out there, how does it compare?
    Thanks

    Along similar lines, I'm interested in hearing from anyone who's gone from GO Launcher Ex to ADW Launcher (which I splurged the $.10 on). I'm currently using GoEx, and I've been noticing that my phone tends to get bogged down and unresponsive. I don't know if that's because of GoEx -- I've seen it under both the Blur and CM7 versions of RedPill, so I don't think the ROM is at fault -- but I've seen someone else mention things bogging down under GoEx, so I'm wondering if it's a known thing with it.

    - Samsung Galaxy S3 with Quantum (CM 10.2 by PwnCakes193)
    - Asus Transformer TF101 with No-Name (CM 10.2 by josteink)
    - Motorola Atrix 4G with CM 7.2

    For me it is like putting in an old pair of shoes. It is very comfortable to work with.
    ..
    pros:-highly customizable -easy to work with-very versatile, and you can do a lot of different things -there are a TON of different themes, but you don't need them. You can find icons and docks on the web.
    ..
    cons:-I think it could be a little smoother, but maybe I need to change my settings.
    ...

    It is definitely worth the full price. I have tried go launcher and found it to be not as flexible. I tried launcher pro free and found it to have similar capacity but not as easy to use.

    I've got GoLauncher, ADWex, and LauncherPro. I like GoLauncher and LauncherPro the best. I tend to switch among all 3 as my mood suits me. I like the way GoLauncher handles installing apps on the home screens, but I find LauncherPro to run much smoother on Darkside. To be fair, I haven't used ADWex enough to really give it a good review. But for 10 cents guys...come on!

    Resize-able: yes
    Scrollable: no

    The GO calendar widget is THE reason I have stuck with GOex. Now that they've added the ability to change icon sizes, I have no reason to even think about other launchers. Although the number of themes for ADW is off the charts.

    OK cool. I think I can live with that. And I'm sure when ICS gets more widespread all of the launchers will have to support resizable and scrollable

    Thanks again everyone.

    What's so great about it?

    Sir, if you ask a question like that for an app that is basically given away for 10 cents, I'm gonna have to ask you to leave!
