When it comes to insane, flashy, over-the-top launchers, two immediately come to mind: GO Launcher's Next and TSF Shell. They're both about as "cutting edge" as it gets, and have a price tag to match – Next is roughly $16, while TSF is closer to $17. Still, if you're a fan of the latter (or have been on the fence about picking it up), it just got a pretty sizable update that brings a new dock, "desktop menu buttons," and some other "amazing" new features:
What's in this version:
Version 1.9.9 Ari 4th
1.Innovative Smart Dock (free size/position/direction/capacity).
2.Desktop menu buttons integrate in Smart Dock, easy operation and save desktop space.
3.Amazing Message widget.
4.Amazing Clock/Weather/Alarm clock widget.
5.Amazing desktop transition setting menu.
6.New efficient move or delete icon mode.
8.Many known bugs fixed.
Exhilarating, no? If TSF sound like just what the doctor ordered to cure your boring launcher blues (and you're willing to shell out nearly $20 for something different), you'll find it at the widget below.
