ADW.Launcher Android App Makes 1.6 Act Like 2.2

ADW.LauncherAndroid app developer AnderWeb sees a problem. Currently, a little less half of all Android devices are running Android version 1.6 or earlier according to TechCrunch, and that includes many eReaders and tablets.

His solution is ADW.Launcher, an Android application that applies a thin layer to the OS that brings features found in the later Android versions. Through ADW.Launcher, users get extra home screens and many other customizable tweaks and icons and widgets.

In a review of the ADW.Launcher, EuroDroid claimed, “ADW.Launcher is an absolutely amazing piece of work, that spruces up any old version of Android beyond recognition.” They added, “It is honestly like getting a new mobile phone.”

ADW.Launcher is free and available in two versions, one for Android 1.6 (ADW.Launcher donut) and the other for Android 2.0.
