ADW.Launcher is the launcher app that comes stock with all builds of the CyanogenMod custom ROM. It was selected because of it’s open-source core and its speed, especially on slower devices. Those without a CyanogenMod ROM could still run the launcher by downloading it free from the Android Market.
Not long ago the app developer teased us with a technology demo where he played with some insanely cool looking animations. Just before Christmas, ADWLauncher EX was released — along with those amazing animations!
ADWLauncher EX is based on the ADW.Launcher open-source core, but adds a lot of new additions and improvements, all without breaking the hundreds of themes available for the old version.
