5 Gorgeous Go Launcher EX Themes To Make Your Droid Sexier Than Ever [Android 2.0+]

It can be said that the app launcher is the defining app for the Android user experience. If you’re stuck with a crappy launcher, you may feel the entire Android experience is lacking. Fortunately, there’s no lack of excellent launchers on the Market, including such crowd-pleasers as LauncherPro and ADW.Launcher. My own personal favorite is Go Launcher EX.

The other day, I realized something that both shocked and delighted me.
