If you want ADW is clean, you must disable the cache scroll in preference system.

davfunk,

I was using the low quality cache to smooth the transitions (but it was still a bit laggy) but moving to non made my ADW Launcher EX as smooth as TW Launcher if not moother.

Just perfect!!!!!!

My Galaxy Note II is using latests Nameless ROM stripped to the bone, latest TeamWin's Recovery Project
TWRP recovery and an exFAT formatted SanDisk 64GB SDXC card
HTC Artemis -> HTC Polaris -> HTC Blackstone -> HTC Leo -> HTC Ace -> Samsung Galaxy Note -> Samsung Galaxy Note II -> Oppo Find 7a

I use GO launcher.

I used to use ADW EX but find GO Launcher mire advanced.

Lets say you have a contact shortcut on your main screen, tapping it calls person X, you can use GO launcher to ads a gesture command. So if you swipe up OM that same shortcut it'll do something else. I have it set so that it'll open that contact's chat window in what'sup.

Tapping calls, swipe up chats. Isn't that amazing and convenient.

CorruptedSanity,

I used GO Launcher for almost a year on my Desire HD, but when I moved to the Note, it was not as smooth as ADW Launcher EX.

Go Launcher has amazing features sur as dockbar icon swipe to launch actions, integrated plugins and so on that you need to find replacement for when using ADW Launcher but if you stick with a laggy launcher (as I use a lot of scrolling widgets), it ruins everything.

So now, with no cache set in config, I can swear that ADW Launcher EX is probably the best launcher for Note in terms of smoothness (and I tried a lot, including 360 Launcher, before writing that).

I use ADW with an HD2, a DHD and the Note because with GO Launcher it is not possible to hide the status bar.

Go to ADW Settings and switch the Cache to Low Quality.

Edit: Sorry, didn't see the posts above mine. :/

I have tried LOTS of launchers but keep coming back to ADW EX.

I finally have it running really nicely. I leave the cache on auto but do unclick scrolling wallpaper.

I keep using the GO Launcher after testing a lot of other launchers.
I made the experiance that the GO Launcher is the best at all. Its smooth and very easy to handle.

ADW EX works perfectly here. No lag at all. I'm using 240 DPI.
