App review: Go Launcher EX (free)

Even the menu shows the potential for customization.  

The launcher is a big part of the Android experience. Since the launcher controls many things that are going to be very noticeable while using your device it’s hard to find one with all the features you need, but for me, Go Launcher EX is the way forward. Go Launcher EX is for customization addicts. The downloadable Market themes change more than just icons: they can also tweak the wallpaper, the app drawer, widgets, scroll-able docks and much more. It also has more fancy transitions than you can imagine. But for you advanced users, you can even make your own themes with a dedicated Windows application.

Of course, all this comes at the cost of performance. The performance definitely isn't bad or unstable, but if you have one of the slower phones then you may perhaps notice some lag, especially if you use the fancy transitions (which would be recommended). That said, if you like customizing your phone, I personally think worth a slight drop in smoothness.

Just like iOS, GO Launcher EX and Android supports folders. This is a feature that hasn’t been seen on very many launchers. You can create folders in two ways, via the menu button, or dragging apps on top of each other, iOS style. 

Overall, GO Launcher EX is a fantastic launcher for Android. It provides many features that aren't in other popular launchers, however some of these features may hold certain devices back in performance. The interface the Go Launcher EX Dev Team created is extremely easy to use yet still very functional and diverse.
