    Launchers - What's your favorite and why?

    With all of the different options of launcher available today, I wanted to start a post that would be a single point for everyone to share their opinions of their favorite launcher.

    1. Please try and link back to the Play Store so that anyone who'd like to try the launcher can click on the link.
    2. Give your overall impression on the launcher, how it runs, and if you enjoy it or are just using it for now.
    3. Make sure to try and identify paid vs free differences.
    4. Feel free to edit later. Just because this is how you feel today, doesn't mean that you'll feel this way in the future.

    Hopefully this will give those who are tired of their stock screens valuable insight into other launchers that are available to them.

    I'll get us started:

    Currently I'm running the free launcher Go Launcher EX.

    I find that this launcher performs well on my Maxx. It has yet to give me the dreaded stopped process message and there are plenty of themes available for download that work well with it.

    The launcher itself is free of charge, but some of the themes are not.

    It's got plenty of customization options for me and I really have yet to find any limitations to this launcher. I have not noticed any slow down of my phone, and haven't had any issues. While I'm sure that some might have a negative experience with this launcher, I have yet to have anything but positive things to say about it.

    I like a bigger desktop, and this launcher lets you expand to 10 x 10 if you like. I'm currently running at 7 x 7 and I find this works well for me.

    I'm running the free Star Wars theme and have run the ICS theme before.

    It has a Go Launcher Lock Widget which customizes your lock screen and gives you options and theme for it. With plenty of ad-ons, you can spend quite a bit of time setting this up the way you want it.

    Another vote for Go Launcher Ex on gingerbread. For those running ICS I'm becoming quite fond of Apex Launcher. Nova launcher is also excellent on ICS.

    On GB go launcher is a great choice. I also found myself gravitating to ADW ex fairly often though. I am one of the few that actually like motoblur as a stock option though, so generally leave it at that when stock. I am running a ROM right now and the launcher is APEX (ICS).

    I'm a big fan of ADW and also tend to use Blur more these days than what I used to.

    I hated motoblur pre razr. Had the DX and could not stand it. The update to it, toss in a duel core...BAM! very functional.

    Admittedly, I have only used a couple of launchers. I vote for Go launcher. It's worked great on all the devices I've tried it on, it's fairly customizable (for a free app), and has been problem free for me.
    If you find yourself in a fair fight.....your tactics stink!

    Running a rooted RAZR MAXX! Now on ICS
