Video: GO Launcher EX updated with new transitions, bug fixes and more


I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: GO Launcher EX is hands down my favorite homescreen replacement for Android. Not only does it offer a high level of customization and compatibility with top-notch themes, but the GO Dev Team provides a certain level of polish not many developers can best. Today, the folks at GO have released an update to their launcher that adds even more of that signature GO quality design.

Eight new scroll effects for the app drawer have been added to GO Launcher EX, bringing the number of fancy-flings up to fourteen. To set a scroll effect for your app drawer, simple press “Menu” from your homescreen, select “Preferences,” choose the “Effects” section under the “General Settings” category and, finally, press “Horizontal scroll effect under app drawer.” The guys over at DroidLife have made a video showcasing the newest effects, which you can find below.

Along with the newest animations, the GO Dev Team has also added a landscape mode and support for slide screens while dragging an app icon. They’ve also fixed the default icons issue on the dock bar.

While we’re on the subject, which launcher do you use? Are you rocking it stock, or do you need a little more customization in your life? Let us know in the comments below.
