11 New Custom Docks for ADW.Launcher EX by Mowmo

January 27, 2011

Developer Mowmo from xda-developers, has released 11 new custom docks recently.  All of them were designed for use with ADW.Lancher EX but will of course work with LauncherPRO as well.

They are all fairly basic but definitely worth the download. It never hurts to have a whole bunch of dock files in your device. I change my device up almost everyday, no matter how perfect it looks.

Here are some of the cool features:

Homescreen transition effects – You can now choose different transition effects to be used when moving through homescreens. Currently there are four effects on top of the usual side scrolling: Scale, Rotate, Flip, and Cube. More effects will come in future updates. (Menu > Preferences > Homescreen Settings > Transition effect

New “Virtual looping” on homescreens! A ton of people requested loop scrolling on homescreens. The problem is that would be incompatible with Live Wallapers, and it would make most static wallpapers look weird. So instead I decided to use a different approach. When you try to scroll past the last homescreen, LauncherPro will quickly bounce back to the first. Conversely, if you try to scroll before the first screen, it will bounce you forward to the last screen. This effectively gives you loop scrolling (you can scroll indefinitely in any direction) without incompatibility issues or nasty visual side effects. (Enable in Preferences > Homescreen Settings)

New Feature: Dock Popups! A perfect complement for dock notifications and dock swipe actions, the new dock popups give you quick access to information without leaving LauncherPro. In this release I’ve included two popups: Missed Calls, and Unread SMS. More popups will come in future updates.

  • mproved speed
  • Reduced memory usage, which means fewer force-closes and possibly allow us to have up to 9 homescreens
  • Increased flexibility. I’m coding everything to make it as flexible as possible, which will allow LauncherPro to better adapt to new device form factors, such as tablets.

You can locate the thread at xda-developers and the download file can be located at MobileGeek.it.

    This article is good.
    Most of the article isn’t about “11 New Custom Docks for ADW.Launcher EX by Mowmo”.
    Its about LauncherPro, which costs money.
