You may think the original and best launcher of all time has not been updated, because people assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually* from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it’s more like we released this update 3 years ago and you didn’t realize. Don’t worry, we understand not everyone has…1.21 gigawatts!! to spend.

Having said this, we’ve been reading a lot about Google recommendations on abusing app options and settings, and we’ve talked a lot about it. But as the ability to speak does not make us intelligent we’ve made all the opposite. You know, without freedom of choice there is no creativity. The Launcher bores.
You may also think “I find your excess of settings disturbing” and we don’t blame you! It’s a totally normal reaction. I guess you guys aren’t ready for that yet. But your kids are gonna love it. In the end, the possibility of configuring it to your likeness is approximately 3720 to 1, what makes it the best launcher because maths never lie.

And yeah, we have screens, ¿and icons? for sure, ahh and we have widgets too, what more?, I mean what else?, in fact, you can make your own. And if you prefer getting everything pre-made, use themes! Or widget and template packs! ¿Is your device’s desktop boring? Change it again Sam. Your style, your rules, Do. Or do not, there’s a setting for it, tweak it, change it, shaken, not stirred.

And remember, “There’s no such thing as ‘the unknown,’ only options inside ADW Settings”

¿Are you gonna miss it?

Reviews From google play store

Been using the ADW launchers for as long as I can remember. I like having everything on one page, with no text under the icons, and lots of folders that clearly show their contents before being clicked. The missing star is because since Samsung's new One UI, the launcher no longer fills the whole screen, there's an extraneous margin at the bottom.


I really love this launcher. My biggest issue and reason for not giving four stars is the lack of ability to add web page shortcuts to the home screen. Clicking "Add to home screen" in the Chrome menu does nothing even if there is space available on the home screen.


I have tried most all the other launchers. ADW is by far the best launcher in the play store! So many options and ADW does not cause my phone to freeze up and crash like another popular launch does. Wish I had tried this a long time ago 😊


Used the unupdated original version 1 for 3 years. It was the V1 version that always wanted me to auto update to this V2. Not the rereleased V1. Decided to go ahead and upgrade. Wish i hadn't. My battery dies super fast now. It used to last all day and more, now, only about 6 hours. And i paid for the premium.


One of the best out there. . After years of gr8 service ADW Launcher started crashing in 2018 on my Asus Zenfone 3/Android Nougat. Upgraded to Asus Zenfone 5/Android Nougat and all was well again for about 2 weeks. Now it crashes many times/day 😢🤔


I had a bitter aftertaste of the way the transition to ADW 2 was handled years ago, but it's time to upgrade my rating. The good: this launcher comes closest to the customization I'm looking for. Worth paying for that (glad I could try first) The bad: Configuration Menus are inconsistent, animations slow, tutorials obnoxious. A lot of trial and error to find the correct settings. App drawer Wishlist: Separate icon size. Tab switching gestures. Let me remove hardcoded categories.


Been using for years. Last upgrade to phone has created a problem with the bottom panel. It is twice as tall as it needs to be and no way to use the wasted valuable screen space. Going to hold off from switching hoping this gets fixed.


However, as you have said, this is just the adw launcher with about 3 years plus of updates. There are still issues that remain unsolved. Basic things like the dock should be able to scroll left or right infinitely; that was not a choice on the first launcher, nor it was on this one. Overall I'm excited that there will be many more added features and updates tho come for adw2. you shouldn't spent too much time developing the extension widgets, that's an gimmick that has failed many launchers.


In your description you say to people with old devices "sorry guys, get an device". Now, could you please get up top date with Samsung Galaxy S10? I changed to Nova launcher after I realized the wallpaper is cut off on the top and the app drawer does not occupy the whole screen. But I seriously love your product and I am willing to compromise for a bit Haha.


After being a long-time user of Apex launcher (only because, at the time, the original ADW Launcher didn't support newer devices), I am now back to ADW Launcher 2. Original review: Why isn't this the default launcher app? Extremely highly customisable (1 to 7 home screens, configurable home button/swipe guesture bindings, lockable desktop to prevent accidental changes...), supports auto-rotation, and it's completely free and open source. Excellent work, and very highly recommended!


I used to use this as my default launcher on my galaxy S8. I've upgraded to the S10 and once it's set as the default launcher it changes how much of the screen gets used for the launcher. It shrinks to the size if one handed more, but stays in the center of the screen. Looks horrible now. Unusable


cant remove google bar or dock. not customizable at all. bad laincher. how did this make it into the top for 2019?!


easy to use, perfectly configurable. but the latest update had got issues. trying to scroll in the app drawer is impossible at times. very annoying. if they fix it, I'll be right back to this launcher


I really wanted to move from Nova to this launcher but had a few issues I needed to resolve first. Reached out to developer a week ago and still haven't heard back. Looks like Nova will remain my launcher of choice.


Developer doesn't care.... Waste of money... Don't buy! Buy Nova instead, you won't regret it.


I love that this app is coming back it has been a long time missed. However the new interface lacks a few customization details the original used to have.


I love this launcher and I bought the pro version which I thought was worth it but I only have 1 problem which is Idk how to get installed apps go to the home screen it's easy to take them from the dock to home screen but it'd be nice to know how to fix this


UPDATE: just updated my phone to Android 9 (PIE!!) on 4.4.2019, and all is working very well, including my Zooper and KWGT widgets. 😊😊😊😊 This is an *insanely* good launcher app with more customizations than any one person can possibly use. 😃😃 Works splendidly on my Samsung S2 tablet as well as my S8 phone. Kudos to the developer. My only wishlist item is to be able to add Chrome shortcuts to the home screen.


Every is good. just one basic fetaure is missing 'jump to page by clicking on dots of page indicator' and dots should be big and wide enough to each other to eliminate wrong clicks.


Thank you so much , my reviews are usually one word but this app is awesome, I upgraded as soon as I started playing around with it has everything you need to make your phone look good... Highly recommend
