ADWLauncher EX dock backgrounds

ADWLauncher is generally considered to be one of the top two homescreen replacements for Android, along with LauncherPro. There are paid editions of both launchers: LauncherPro Plus, and a $3.15 version of ADW called ADWLauncher EX was recently released.

Even though I’ve purchased ADWLauncher EX, I’m still a LauncherPro Plus man myself, but EX keeps getting better. LauncherPro users have always been able to change the background of the dock, and now ADWLauncher EX fans can do the same. The new version of EX has 8 different dock backgrounds built-in, although we have the option to apply any image.

I haven’t tried this myself, but the thousands of LauncherPro dock backgrounds can likely be used with ADW as well. ADWLauncher EX is available in the Market for $3.15.
