App review: ADW Launcher

If you’re experiencing a bit of Froyo envy, you might want to try out this free app called ADW Launcher. Of course it won’t allow you to tether, and it won’t give you animated gallery previews, and it won’t increase the speed of your device. But the action buttons might help you imagine that you’re running a newer version of Android than you actually are. If not, at least you’ll have the option to tweak your homescreen experience and try something a little different.

It’s free, it’s functional, and it allows you to do some things that the Froyo launcher won’t.
