Review Dodol Launcher
Change your Android's entire look with ease

Various features, stylish design
Inconvenient interface, lags a bit
Dodol Launcher for Android creates a whole new look for your droid. There's tons of themes to choose from, but not all of them are great.
Dodol Launcher goes for broke. It doesn't just change a few button layouts, but revamps your entire interface to the point where it doesn't even feel like you're using Android anymore. Basically, the app is a collection of themes; just browse the comprehensive library of choices and switch between your favorites easier than you can swap shoes. There are themes to fit every conceivable mood spanning the human experience, and the best part is, most all of them appear to be free.
There are several categories to browse, but the interface is sorely lacking a meaningful search function. All your downloads are stored in a library for easy switching, and swapping between your favorite looks is just a couple clicks. You literally could change your entire gizmo on a whim, or match outfits just for fun.
The themes function well for the most part, but some display better than others. A few are more gimmicky than practical. Occasionally, the home button hangs before kicking in, as does switching between pages. It's a smooth experience overall, but not hiccup free. Most themes change all your icons too, so virtually nothing looks the same as before.
Dodol Launcher will take the boredom out of your droid. So if you're feeling a little ho-hum about the same old Android, change is just a click away.
