Video: ClockworkMod Launcher in Action

While reading through all of your comments on today’s poll, we noticed that some of you were not aware of our Facebook page.  And that’s important because you’ll miss out on sweet videos from fans like the one below!

A big thanks to Ron for reviewing the ClockworkMod Launcher…

  • tucker142

    I love the launcher but it lags when running live wallpaper….I'm gonna keep it for now hoping they will get it fixed

  • Chamberlan

    This may be a newbie question so please forgive, but I would really like to know. How are you getting your droid to run so smoothly. I still have a lag since I got the OTA update.

    • magdroid

      I don't know exactly. My droid had a bit of lag, but that's why I like ClockworkMod so much. It actually runs a bit smoother than stock. It even runs better than Helix1 (I haven't tried the Helix2 Beta). Did you clear all your apps/widgets/icons off your original home launcher before installing ClockworkMod? Are you using a home replacement??

      • Exodus615

        MagDroid have you heard of NexusMod? they came out with a 2.1 compatible version today could you give it a test drive?

        • magdroid

          Actually I haven't heard of it. Is it available on the market? I would
          love to try it out!

          • Exodus615

            Yes it is NexusMod 2.0 use to be a good app til the 2.1 ota came out then it stopped working now the dev says it back and better than ever and works with 2.1 Droid would like a video of the Nexus live wallpapers if you dont mind and your opinion on it .99 in the market NexusMod 2.0

      • tucker142

        ” Did you clear all your apps/widgets/icons off your original home launcher before installing ClockworkMod?”

        mag would this affect performance if you didn't clear them…i.e. lag?

  • Spartan15A

    Should i use this launcher or helix launcher 2 0.7 beta 2

    • magdroid

      If you don't want to pay the $3.00 I would say Helix. I am waiting for helix to come OUT of beta before I go back to it. I may not go back, depends how smooth it is.

  • Zazza

    Just bought it and it's constantly freezing, had to go back to safe mode and remove defaults on Launcher. Anybody experienced the same problem?

  • xFenixKnightx

    Here's a quick vid I made of it too. =) And yes that Home button is a bitch while holding the camera. lol

    • xFenixKnightx

      BTW that Android wallpaper and setup I have on there is probably my fav of all time!

      • Doolidg

        thanks for the vid you made me go and download the beautiful widgets….your android wallpaper is really cool…the one that says android with the little yellow droids….where did you get it…Thanks for your time…..

        • xFenixKnightx

          I hope this doesnt come off as a bit douchey but…I dont want anyone else to have that wallpaper. Sorry. =/

          I keed! Zedge app, should be under technology or just do a search for Android on there.

    • Jarred

      Your vid is the other one I saw, thats why I asked.

    • Doolidg

      Ok nobody asked you so I have to know where did your get that killer wallpaper
      And the weather app they look great!

      • magdroid

        I run 3 Weather Apps, LOL: Beautiful Widget, News & Weather (2.1 google update), and WeatherBug Elite.

        The Wallpaper can be found @

        • Doolidg

          thanks…I just went and downloaded the beautiful widgets WOW what a nice touch it adds….the link you sent me for the wallpaper is not the right one though, the one you have the link to is a pic of earth..
          I was looking at your home screen with the little yellow droids and says android across it….that one rocks…what's that wallpaper? And thanks for your time

          • magdroid

            I'm sorry. I must be the other dude with the video. LOL. You can try
            leaving a video comment for him, and see if he replies.

          • Doolidg

            Thanks magdroid…I left a comment well see if he gets back to me

      • xFenixKnightx

        Zedge app FTW! Search Android.

        • Doolidg

          Thanks xfenixKnightx I have it….that's really cool

  • buzweaver

    At some point won't these features be part of a future Droid update?

  • aarynk

    If I'm coming from Helix to this one should I take off all my widgets on my screens to make sure they are blank so I don;t get any FC?? I only have 5 screens going right now but would like to try this one out but dont want any issues.

    Anyone come from Helix to this one yet? BTW Helix is set as default on my phone if that helps

    • magdroid

      Yes, you want to clear your screen of all widgets. They don't play nice on seperate Home replacements. That is why some people complain of lag issues, because they keep everything on all their screens…and wonder why they get lag.

  • Jarred

    Why is it that every video I see of the ClockworkMod Launcher, that onscreen home button is a fail? Is it not very responsive?

    • MagDroid

      Because you have to hit the thing DEAD center. It's hard to do when your shooting a video and hitting buttons with the other hand. :-)

  • bladedancer12

    whats the name of the app your using to for your pictures on your page? there where four pics together??

    • MagDroid

      It's Contacts! Widget (don't forget the “!” at the end).

      • Exodus615

        yo MagDroid how is that app is it worth the money is the developer a good dev? do you have issues with it force closing and such do you recommend it to us Droid-Lifers

        • Tom

          the dev is koush and he is amazing. I can't speak of FC, because I am rooted. but koush is the bam behind the Droid ClockworkMOD.

          • Exodus615

            Tom did you go from stock 2.1 to rooted or you never updated?

  • aarynk

    The only thing holding me up in buying this is seeing how it works in landscape which of course was not shown. Is this really worth buying over Helix?

    • Magdroid

      I am uploading a landscape video now.

      • MagDroid

        BTW Texting and messaging works fine in Landscape mode.

    • MagDroid

      Here is the video for Landscape mode.

      • aarynk

        Thank you for this video!! Been waiting to see if I should drop the $3 or keep Helix

  • tneison2

    Anybody know where he got his wallpaper? Looks cool.

  • Billyhouse

    He needs to show how it works in landscape mode.

    • magdroid

      I actually just made a video for landscape mode since I've gotten a few requests.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-LlQT3Frss

      I added in the part about the Palm Pre cards as well. Thank you rdunseith!

      • maizekidstill

          • maizekidstill

            -Dave

          • rdunseith

            Sure, no problem!

          • rdunseith

            It's “Contacts! Widget”. Hard to find the developer is “zuggabecka” Costs 1 euro

          • Eak

            In his description for the video he says they are Beautiful Widgets Contacts! Widget (the one with the ! after contacts)”

          • rdunseith

            I realized that and actually finally found it. 1 euro though.

          • http://urmom.com/ Towelie

            I have not yet purchased anything with euros… ? ? I'm in america, can I do that.. Any stats on the transfer rate of Dollars to Euros?… thanks in advance

          • onetime420

            you can use our us dollar to buy it but it cost us more b/c their buck is worth more

  • rdunseith

    He didn't show how if you hold down the launcher button you get the Palm Pre like cards.

    • iammebane

      yes you do…. actually, i think you either double tap the screen, or hold the launcher down
