    Thanks for this version, looks great at first look on my TF201!

    Is there a way to copy/migrate the EX screen layouts over to the HD version?

  2. WascallyWabbit says:

    Hey! Nice update. Got a big problem with the new theme browser though. I am on an Asus tf700t and when I go into the themes and try to scroll down the list, it immediately crashes. If you need any more info, let me know

    • WascallyWabbit says:

      It is also crashing when I try to add more than 10 folders to a screen.

    • admin says:

      Hi.
      Can you tell me it happen once? Or every time will happen this when you do this operation?

      • wascallywabbit says:

        It seems to be more the total number of objects, of which there are 16, at that number if I press the add button it crashes.

  3. WascallyWabbit says:

    One last thing, cause my launcher is now stuck in a boot/crash cycle, I can no longer access the thing at all to test anything, so back to 1.12 for now

  4. Jon says:

    Is that annoying top/google search bar ever going to become optional?

    The update is good, but a lot of things still need improvement.

    Widget Themes

    Full EX Theme Support

    Unlimited Screen Usage

    Top Bar Show/Hide Option

    More Customization Options For Font & Colors

    Etc…

    It’s a nice App but since it is meant for Tablets I would think using the entire screen would be an obvious feature.

    I’m not trying to say you guys don’t do nice work, just giving feedback and suggestions as you’ve asked for.

    Jon.

    It looks nice. btw, why don’t you add option to remove google search from desktop and hide the tool bar? (to maximize the desktop) like other ICS launchers (Apex & Nova).

  6. Bill says:

    The additions in this update look nice, the themes work well(I can see the icon change).

    I would really like to use Go Launcher HD on my tablet as oppossed to EX, it runs much better. However, THE WALLPAPER STILL DOESN’T DISPLAY ON MY VIZIO VTAB1008. The lack of wallpaper resulting in a black background is a deal breaker.

    UNINSTALLED.

    • admin says:

      Hi.
      Can you tell me you always have this problem?
      Or suddenly appear this problem?

      • Bill says:

        After I got Honeycomb in mid March I installed the HD version, I believe that was version 1.01. Wallpaper did not display then. I’ve made a comment on almost every version since then, no wallpaper. I’ve sent a couple of bug reports as well. So yes it’s always been a problem.

        • admin says:

          Hi.
          I’m very sorry for the inconvenience.

          We will checking the problem you’ve mentioned.

  7. tomtcom says:

    The beta is fine for me. In my opinion, this launcher is smoother on Jelly Bean than ICS. I think because the frame rate is higher on Jelly Bean than ICS.

  8. Merrell says:

    Love this launcher! Really looking forward to transition effects. App drawer is not very smooth when switching from panel to panel, otherwise I can’t wait to see new features. Once there is some EX features, I’ll probably be switching to this full time.

  9. Kristina says:

    Dryad Theme beta2 crashed whent starting on Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 :(

  10. ebola says:

    Please fix the blurry icon resize method. On Galaxy Tab with CM9 with big icons all the icons are blurry meanwhile the icons smaller then on Trebuchet or on Apex or on any other ICS launcher. Go Launcher EX are lot more crisp with 84px custom icon sizes however EX also has a problems with resize. It seems to use small icons to ‘upsize’ instead of use large icons to ‘downsize’ with soft sharpening. Dynamic icon sizes are very ugly on Go Launcher HD and on EX also. Thanks in advanced!

    THANK YOU SO MUCH GO TEAM! Finally theme support! I’m coming back to this launcher now!

  12. goldie says:

    please make a support for mdpi devices, (label size option is needed)

  13. jeremy says:

    Hey guys I really like this update. Fnally having theme support is awesome, but really all it does is change the icons. I know your working hard. I’m just wondering why its taking so long to inplement all the go Launcher ex options? Also it would be nice if you guys let Android Jellybean influence the next update. :-)

  14. tanner says:

    BEST tablet launcher by far!!! One suggestion: make go EX Widgets compatible along with the themes

  15. qliu00 says:

    It is a very nice launcher,Ever since I took a look at it the first time, I love it…

    there is a tiny bug , it is too high density in the ALL-APPS,waiting for your E-mail,then i can send the picture to you,at the same time ,the Dryad Theme beta2 cannot be run.

    • admin says:

      Hi!
      Thank you for using.
      About Dryad Theme can not run problem.
      Can you briefly describe the specific situations?
      And can you tell me your tablet models and system?

  16. wascallywabbit says:

    Beta 2 seems to be much more stable and hasn’t crashed on me when doing the same under beta 1. Keep up the good wprk.

  17. wascallywabbit says:

    Spoke too soon, shoulda mentioned that the launcher crashes when trying to navigate through the theme list.

  18. TomTcom says:

    Beta 2 has better performance with speed and transitions than the latest download.

  19. Michael says:

    I wonder if you everwill drop the limit on folder that currently can hold just about 40 apps. This is very annoying since I’ve got many games on my Xoom which I’m forced to store in two folders right now.

  20. Carlos suez says:

    It is very bad in tablets with 7 “inches, the icons are overlapping the drawer, even if you change the size of the icons they still overlap.
    My tablet Genesis GT 7105, android 2.3

  21. qliu00 says:

    The GO Launcher HD v1.13 has some important bugs,why not modify it …… I have mail to golauncher@goforandroid.com, and the others also report the same problem,why the release version is also so close;
    Just as my picture show that ,it is too close ,some pad up-and-down(in all-apps) are overlapping the drawer.not just in 7 inches,9.7 pad is also as it is this.

    • qliu00 says:

      our system is android 4.0.4 and cpu is Cortex-A8, our Resolution is 1920*720, and the ALL-APPS up-and-down icon is too close , some foreign client feel bad,so can you modify the distance between the first line of apps and the second line of apps. it is so nearly that some icons are overlapped, according to the X_line apps between each other,the Y_line apps also need some distance,then it can make the desktop become more beautiful,as the same of thinking over the function,i think the display in ALL-APPS is the same important(point to the Go Launcher HD v1.13),may be we can Communicate with each other in E-mail,my e-mail address is qliu00@gmail.com,Waiting for your mail。

  22. ykb says:

    Good idea would be an option to disable wallpaper in app drawer. My experience with ics-like launchers (e.g. Nova, Apex) shows that with no wallpaper (black background) drawer transitions are much smoother than with dimmed wallpaper.
    Just one more question to Go Launcher HD users: doesn’t something strange happen to the wallpaper when you rotate the screen? Seems like it has to take a second to reposition, and during this time part of the background turns black. I’m using Motorola Xoom, Jelly Bean, but on ICS and previous versions of the Launcher the problem also occured.
    Apart from that the launcher ia great!

  23. WOW says:

    I don’t really understand people having issue with icons overlapping in app drawer..maybe I’m missing something, but I have a 9.7 inch display tablet, and if I first download this launcher, yes the icons overlap and it is too dense. But you can change the setting, so that they don’t overlap. Just decrease the number of column of apps shown in the app drawer in the preferences page. I set it to 5×6 on my 9.7 inch tablet, and it looks really nice. I’m not kind of a guy who usually makes home screens like 10×10, so 5×6 is perfectly fine for me. Maybe it isn’t for you?? If it doesn’t matter, just go to preferences and change the number of columns and/or rows and the app drawer will look much cleaner and nicer.

    • qliu00 says:

      your resolution is in the desktop,but i point to the ALL-APPS are too dense.here in the all-apps cannot be set…do you understand.

      • WOW says:

        Yes, you can set the number of rows and columns for All Apps too. You mean the App drawer, right???? It CAN be changed. Go to preferences and use the tab on the left side and chose App drawer settings, and set the app drawer grid size. Set it as custom, as that’s what I did for my 9.7 inch tablet. I set as 5 rows and 6 columns, and it looks very nice. IF YOU DID NOT MEAN APP DRAWER, I APOLOGIZE..

  24. WOW says:

    One bug: Why is it keep reapplying the theme over and over again time to time when I hit home screen? It doesn’t happen with the EX version I think. I think when the launcher is restarted, it reapplies the theme, and the spinning wheel while waiting for reapplying is from Android 2.3, and it’s ugly as hell on this large display, so please optimize EVERY element of the app to ICS and above..and keep the theme applied always..Thanks!

  25. Guru Yajaman says:

    I have installed Go HD launcher on HTC Flyer with HTC Sense. My problem is every time, I click on home button I have to chose between sense and Go hd launcher. I have been clicking use by default action every time, but still the same. I can’t remove the HTC Sense. This happens only to go hd launcher.. If I choose HTC Sense it will stay default. I would appreciate your feedback.

    Otherwise it’s the best launcher for Android tablet so far.. Well done.

  26. qliu00 says:

    thank you ,and how can i change the settings of the icon

  27. XloszStudio says:

    Please support the expansion icon of the high definition
    Same GO launcher EX

    Thank all go dev team

  28. Eugene says:

    Support GO Launcher EX Theme (Apply wallpaper and icons) and skin when will?

  29. How to remove this nagging banner ad from the notification toolbar? It shows only a diagonally placed green “Download” int the upper right corner of the notification toolbar and throws me to the Market to (re-)download the same application (Go Launcher HD for Pad 1.13). This is absolutely insane and disturbing. Please give me an advice how to remove this…

    • admin says:

      Hi.
      Thank you for the information.
      Your feedback already record.
      We will checking the problem you’ve mentioned

      • To be correct, I had once removed this Download banner but I don’t know how. My tablet is Momo8 Bird, ICS 4.0.3, 1GB DDR3, A10 CPU. Nevertheles, I am very satisfied by the Go Launcher HD – wish you successful business!

        • I finnally discovered this mystery – it is just a some dumb banner image and I have replaced it with a real Go TaskManager Ex and widget TaskManager Ex (4×1). But it is very strange because on my previous experient with Go Launcher HD this gadget is somewhat installed automatically instead of this banner.

  30. you have concluded and summarized the ideas. I never touch this kind of things ..~~so before I am a green hand~~ now i opened mental horizon~~~

  31. home says:

    To conclude, summarize ideas. getting a college student, I am produced to type determination.

  32. krissboo says:

    Good to see you working hard on improvements to go launcher hd, one problem I have is that it re-applies the theme every time i reboot my tablet, even when I have set a photo as the background. It’s very annoying!

    Otherwise all going well, and no overlap on icons here.

    • admin says:

      Hi.
      Can you tell me your tablet models and system?

    • WOW says:

      Same here, it keeps reapplying, so I just went back to the original theme. I’ll be using the theme setting after this gets fixed. My tablet is Cube U9GT2, Android 4.0.4, Rockchip RK2918 Cortex A8 CPU with 1GB DDR3 RAM. Please fix it Go Team! Thank you.

  33. Penguin202 says:

    Great, but I really, really, really want transition effects man! The features on EX make me hate myself!!! Do this and I’m getting rid of the stock launcher for good!!!!!!!! Please, I’ll be waiting, but I’m not patient…

  34. jeremy says:

    I am having the same issue. Everytime I reboot the wallpaper changes to the themes default wallpaper. Sometimes it just does it out of no where without even rebooting my tab. Please fix asap. You guys are talented ( go launcher ex) I just think you need to sit down come up with a major UI overhaul and get this up to Go standards, because right now its not!

  35. hendra wiraatmaja says:

  36. mcgee says:

    Is there a way to disable the Gesture Operator window from opening by double click. I don’t need it and keep opening it by accident.

    Also I would like to be able to add an App Drawer shortcut to the dock, like in Go Launcher EX.

    I have a samsung galaxy tablet 7″ and a PendoPad 4.0 7″. Re samsung first: do I have to uninstall the Golauncher ex and Go locker to use the HD version? and will the HD version work on the Pendopad? I love Golauncher.

  38. Andrés Basáez says:

    Hi. I have a Sony tablet S and golauncher hd have a problem in the home screen, because all apps moved or installed in the usb storage appears a green Droid icon. fix it please

  39. wascallywabbit says:

    On an Asus Transformer Infinity, this version is doing something weird when I make any changes to the layout. If I try to move folders, add widgets, add folders, etc… the app doesn’t exactly crash, but everything disappears. I have to switch to a different launcher and then force quit this and then relaunch it. It’s really strange and makes it almost unusable. It happens even if I reset all the settings to default and start adding things. Help:)

  40. Tom says:

    I really like using Go Launcher HD on my Vizio VTAB1008; however, there is one bug. Some of the icons on the home screen do not display correctly about 90% of the time. The unique icon for the app is missing and a default system icon is displayed instead. The apps that are affected are not always the same, and sometimes all the icons look perfect.

    • admin says:

      Hi.
      Can you tell me your tablet models and system?
