=About GO Launcher=
GO Launcher is the most popular home app in Android Market. It allows users to customize home screen, change themes, use smooth transition animation as well as various widgets and screen locks. It brings you a fresh and extraordinary mobile operation experience.

=Features=
- Thousands of personalized themes
- Various widgets and screen locks (weather, switcher, calendar…)
- Extremely smooth transition animation
- Smooth flipping operation
- User-defined folder to easily categorize apps
Many options in preferences to help you customize you phone!

=Tips=
1. How to get themes, widgets and lockers?
a) Search ‘go launcher theme’, ‘go widget’ or ‘go locker’ in Android Market.
b) Use GO Store via menu button in GO Launcher.
2. How to set transition animation?
Use ‘Effects settings’ via button in GO Launcher.
3. Icons are too small?
Use ‘Icon Size’ option in ‘Preferences->Visual settings->Icons’ to make icons bigger.
3. Long press the app icon to enter editing mode on home screen and app drawer.
4. Glide up to open menu and glide down to pull down notification.
5. The widgets in the screenshots belong to GO Widget, attainable from Android Market or GO Store.

=Important=
1. GO Launcher is a totally free app without any charge.
2. If you cannot set ‘GO Launcher’ as the default home app, download ‘Home Manager’ to fix it.
3. ‘DIRECTLY CALL PHONE NUMBERS’ permission?
It's required by the feature to create shortcuts of ‘person’ and ‘direct dial’. GO Launcher won't make unattended phone call and cost your money.
5. ‘READ CONTACT DATA’ permission?
It's required by the feature to create 'person' shortcut as well as to add contact folder.

Our commitments are respecting user privacy and delivering cool experience. Please help us by rating this app and recommending to the others.

Want an extreme makeover to your phone? Try it out!

This has always been bugging me, but how does GoTeam actually make a living out of giving the app for free? Personal data sale?

Nice to see dev team developing :)
Go laucher is best for me, if scrolling would be a bit more smooth would be awesome.
 
I've said this elsewhere, but I'll take the opportunity to say it again here :)

I am still using v2.60 for one simple reason. Up to v2.60, when you exit an app you go straight back to the home screen. After 2.60 you go back to the app drawer. I prefer the old behaviour (and I'm not the only one who does) - why not make it an option in the settings, so the user can decide what they prefer?

Downloaded and I installed. Everything looks good so far. I def notice a difference with the transitions; feels much smoother. Keep up the good work.

Is this version or future versions going to be based on Android 4.0 source code? Because currently it lags a lot on leaked ICS roms. Not trying to be selfish, of course.

Whoa...someone that can actually hear my voice. Don't know how many times I have tried to reach out to Go to have this changed.

Moving apps from the app drawer to the home screen is horrible!!!

Change it so if you are in the app drawer and your tap and hold on a app you have two options when you slide it to the left or to the right. One being the home screen, the other being the all screens mode. Takes way too long to customize my home screens the way its set up right now.

Hey, we will bring out a new-designed app drawer in near future.
Change the method of moving apps to homescreen.

Can you please add an option to disable and hide the dock?

Also when you guys remake the app drawer, can you make it so we can drag an app from the drawer into a special area that will hide the app?

Absolutely love Go Launcher. It is the best out there.

However I would appreciate it if I were able to use my phone's built-in app transitions (opening an app from the homescreen and back) instead of the "zoom" ones Go Launcher forces on me. I hope you guys are considering adding this to a future version. Go and LauncherPro are the only launchers I know of that have this behavior and LauncherPro hasn't been updated in about a year.

Please consider letting us have this choice. You guys do great work and I'm thrilled to hear about 3.0!

    Question to Product Manager ugujun:

    Can you remove Application manager which checks for applications update and make it a plugin? It hogs in the background otherwise a very good launcher.

    Sorry, no personal data sale!
    We sell themes to get money and GO Launcher is totally free.

    it just redundant, we have physical home button man..

    Speak for yourself. Not redundant for me.

    I'm glad there is a home button on app drawer when using it on my Kindle Fire.

    I just believe we have the right to complain/ask for updates/ etc.. by virtue of the fact that we are exchanging something for a service. Its just deceitful to claim its "free" . That's all.

    Then by your terms, everything is "paid" and requires "exchanging something" ?
    The guys are working hard, and just because its a day or two late on a update, which according to me is a major update, doesn't mean their just lazy or anything. Just give them a bit more time and im sure they'll do as they said.
    I'm not trying to go out on war here or anything, just saying that complaining will not get you the update faster.
