    You say "developers," but it was really just one guy. I suspect he simply moved on in his life. *shrug*

    That's how it goes, the devs make a quick buck then disappear!

    I don't know about all that. Just because I write an app and charge a dollar or five for it shouldn't mean I now am obligated to spend the remainder of my life supporting it.

    ADW was a good launcher and lasted for a while, it was the default launcher for CM7, it wasn't just a quick buck app.

    I'm kind of latched on Google Now launcher now, but I like CM's Trebuchet also.

    That's true! But when you decide to abandon it, pull it from the play store!

    It still works; why prevent people from buying it if they want it?

    It's the gamble you take when you buy an app. I bought the app years ago and enjoyed it. If you are able to use it keep it! If not there are tons of other options as well. I have moved on to Nova Prime and love it! But thats just me.

    Ah, fellow former palm pre user *waves*. So the reason i like ADW is i need the 2 up screen gestures (not just 1) and the down screen gesture, and i live for how they handle widget adding/seeking. I think that's pretty much the only thing i use the launcher for. Any ideas where i can find those 2 features? I also love their app drawer management where you can break it down into different groups and then swipe up and down to change group access, but I *can* live without that.

    i'll give nova another shot cuz i really want the tranparent capacitive buttons bar and transparant notification bar.
