    Touchwiz vs. GoLauncherEx

    Who likes their touchwiz as opposed to a different launcher?
    Who choses GLEx over ADW or vice-versa or another one?

    I am an ADW fan...I have lots of launchers though. Touchwiz is not bad on a device that can run it smooth.
    I cut corners till I break it.
    If I help you break it, I will help you fix it...promise!

    I ran Go for a long time, but switched to ADW EX and like it better. Go had a lot of 'Gowigets" which I do not use, but some may like them, Go was very customizeable

    ADW EX little less clunky IMO and very intuitive with regard to set up. I like the icon theming in ADW. I too have a couple (ADW, Go, Launcher Pro). Most have a free version to test out prior to paying for the app.

    Remember that you will be prompted when acitivating from the screen to "use as default" If you pick that, it will be the default for all actions (app drawer et al) going forward. If you do not, you will have to manually select each time, which can get old quickly.

    Good luck, it really is a trial and error to see what you like better.

    I think you'll find pros and cons with each, but inevitably it boils down to personal preference. I like Go myself just because of the massive customization it allows.
    I stay away from all widgets except for my time/weather widg on my homescreen.
    I think you'll find both ADW & GO to be great alternatives to stock TW. Good luck!

    There are a couple programs you can use to easily switch from one launcher to the next. Go launcher suggests using "Home manger" and ADW suggests using "Home Switcher" I think. there are 2 version of home switcher, one for froyo and one for gingerbread.
    I have used them all and they work great. Check them out if you need to switch back and forth. I always download one to have just in case something goes wrong and I need to switch or something.

    I switch a lot...I use 2 launchers as standards. ADW and Launcher 7. I use launcher 7 when I am traveling due to simplicity (makes your phone look like a new windows phone) and then adw when I am around power cords...lol
    I cut corners till I break it.
    If I help you break it, I will help you fix it...promise!
