Go Launcher for Android: A New And Fresh Home Replacement App

Go Launcher Android App

The newly launched home replacement app, Go Launcher, is fresh and  has every reason to become your default launcher app. It packs the goodies of two of the best launchers for android, LauncherPro & ADW Launcher, and sports features of iPhone’s home launcher. It’s really awesome!

I might sound deliriously happy for Go Launcher, but bear with it — I really liked it a lot, and my hunger for change is also profound. It’s not everyday that we see an awesome app in the market that replaces our old favorites.

The Go launcher app has the likes of iPhone and Samsung’s TwLauncher [TouchWhiz UI for Samsung’s Galaxy Devices], you can uninstall apps directly from the app drawer and navigate horizontally in there. Also you can see your recently opened apps and a task manager inside the app drawer.

Although Go Launcher for Android packs many cool things, it lacks the theming features, it doesn’t have dock background feature like launcher pro, and no gorgeous collection of themes like ADW Launcher, but it’s okay for a newly launched home replacement app. It takes time to build great apps. And I am very much sure that the developers have worked hard and I hope they’ll continue to do so. Kudos to the Go Dev Team!

Quoted features from the android market:

  • Extremely smooth scrolling
  • Convenient icon pop-menu
  • Gesture supported
  • Useful app drawer to uninstall apps and kill tasks
  • Removable screen previews (Up to 30 screens)

  1. I have purchased Launcher Pro. I was using it for last 8 months. I have tried ADW also but I was very happy with launcher pro and its awsome apps. I felt no one can make better app than this. Last week, i stumbled upon this Go Launcher. Since then I am in love with it. Its laggy sometimes. Responses are slow sometimes, But overall this has raised the quality bar much higher. I have become Fan of it. Screen replacement is very easy. Customization is awfully simple. Though I miss LP pro widgets sometimes. Overall its rocking App. And its free…. Kudos Dev.

    1. Yep! the Go launcher is quite peppy.

  3. I really like Go Launcher as well! I am however having problems changing the dock shortcuts. One video showed being able to set any app onto the dock, in place of the standard, but when I’ve tried it, it only opens a select list. Do I have something set wrong? Is there any kind of user guide available? This is definitely not a deal breaker for me. I still prefer Go Launcher to LP.

    1. You’re asking how to set any app onto the dock, right? Well, I’ve written the steps below.

      – Hold any app’s icon on the dock, and a menu will pop-up
      – select “Change Shortcut”
      – select “Shortcut”
      – select “Group Application”
      – now from the list select the app you want in the dock, and choose an icon for it
      – You’re Done 🙂

      It’s complex. Isn’t it?

  5. I love this app! Tho I have one problem with it. My husband downloaded it and uninstalled it cuz he didn’t think the settings would allow screen rotation. Now we figured that out he wants to use it as default but is not given the option to select it for default. Any ideas on how to fix this? Thank you for any help….

    1. – Search for “Home Switcher” (free) app in the android market, and download it on your phone.

      – Now open Home Switcher app, and you will see a list of all the home replacement apps installed on your phone.

      – Look for “Go Launcher” in the list and make it your default app by tapping on “set as default”.

  10. Best and coolest Home Launcher used till date….has very few themes on market available.

    1. Yea… it’s definitely cool. And I think new themes for Go launcher are showing up in market more often now. hv you tried the Angry Birds theme? I’m yet to try it but it looks cool!
