Wow! I'm amazed by this app! It made my LGP500 both more beautiful and more functional. Only thing, plz remove the uninstall from context menus. 5*

Well done. Nice alternative to LauncherPro with some unique touches. But its not as good.
I am a big LauncherPro fan, but I switched to ADW to try it out. Amazingly smooth! Very good UI also. I still think LPro has more to it, but A+++

Great home replacement. Very customizable. I seem to be unable to use the view notifications action, a small problem, but one that I noticed. DInc
