GO Launcher EX (snApp review)

If you are anything like me you will have tried a few of the alternative launchers available from the Google play store, there are many to choose from such as Launcher Pro, ADW, Apex, Mobo Launcher etc. I have tried a few but have settled on the excellent GO Launcher EX as a replacement to HTC Sense on my Sensation XE! Now there isn’t anything really wrong with the Sense UI but it doesn’t really tick enough boxes for me, I would love to use a mixture of both Sense and GO but I don’t think that’s possible.

GO Launcher EX is a complete makeover including theme support, homescreen effects, dock customisation and much much more to boot! The homescreen is the first noticable thing when you first start the application, icons magically change and a new shortcut bar appears on the bottom of the screen. You can change the transitions between screens with cube, barrel, star and many more effects.

You can add up to 9 homescreens to fill up with apps, folders, widgets etc. GO Launcher also has it’s own widgets for various things like power, email, twitter, facebook and more. It has it’s own set of preferences for changing homescreen options like shrinking or enlarging icon sizes and changing app drawer, effects and gesture settings.

 

I suppose the main thing for me is having more options to personalise my device with themes, extra homescreens and effects. I’ll leave you with some screen shots of the app in action!
