Before Nova Launcher took off and became the best launcher for Android, GO Launcher Ex used to rule that domain. In terms of features, Go Launcher has always been ahead of the curve and the competition. The beautiful Go launcher themes are among the highlights of this launcher.
However, the launcher’s poor resource management made it drain a lot of battery without any reason. Thankfully, the team behind the launcher has managed to make some nice changes over the past couple of years. The launcher is now in a state where it can be properly used.
15 Best Go Launcher Themes For Android
The article focuses on the best free go themes you can get from the Google Play Store.
The first theme on the list is simply and aptly named “Eternally.” For anyone who is a fan of flat icons, this is the right theme to go for. With the theme, you get access to new wallpapers, icons, and design elements that apply to the rest of the launcher.
In case you don’t like the wallpaper, you can always replace them with the ones that you prefer.
If you are in search of a cleaner, more sophisticated then Lonely is the perfect theme for you. It’s among one of the cool go themes that are available in the market. It follows somewhat material design.
The icons are flat, and the colours are just the right amount of fade. Albeit it’s a paid theme, lonely would look amazing on your home screen.
The things that I really admire about all the GO Launcher themes is that apart from just bringing in new icon packs, they also introduce other elements. You get widgets, changes in app drawers, and even the wallpapers.
Miracle is a great example of one such theme; introducing several design elements, it is one of the best themes around.
Labyrinth is one of the best go launcher themes that I will suggest. The reason is simple, the theme is simple, easy to understand, and even easier to use. The design elements are plenty, and they all work together in a proper order.
All the icons get themed properly as well, so you will not be facing any missing or inconsistently themed icons. Surely, a theme this good doesn’t come for free, but it’s worth every penny.
For anyone who is in need of iOS like icons, then the Glass theme is the right one for you. One can’t really say that there is something wrong with wanting those icons because everyone has a preference to follow.
As the name suggests, the Glass theme is not too fancy; the overall colour scheme is colourful, and the wallpaper is good too. Plus, there’s a decent amount of other design elements included as well. The Glass is undoubtedly one of the best free go launcher themes you can get for your phone.
Glorious is another wonderful theme that you can use to create the best go launcher setup. The theme focuses on slightly rounded icons that have tasteful colour palettes. First look at the theme, and I was quickly reminded of the beloved MIUI themes that were all the rage back in the day when I got my first Android.
Glorious is not the most innovative themes for Go Launcher Ex, but the simplistic and practical approach makes me coming back for more.
While the name of the theme certainly makes a lot of people wonder whether or not this theme is going to stay relevant after a while, my experience so far has been pleasant. Initial Beauty is one of those themes that get the concept of rounded icons right.
The icons also have a pretty good colour palette so you don’t have to worry about the icons being too dull, or too vibrant. Plus, other design elements are also nice. Ensuring that you get one of the best go launcher setups.
Sure, the theme is paid, but at least you will get your money’s worth.
Gentleman is another nice theme for Go Launcher that you can download. Now the overall theme is pretty nice. However, the biggest gripe I have with this theme is that not all icons are themed. So you are left with some icons that look like they are themed, and some that are not.
For people who heavily rely on the stock apps, it shouldn’t be an issue but if you have a lot of apps, then it might be an issue. The design elements on the Gentleman theme are also pretty good. Plus the nice combination of black and gold makes it one of the most desired themes.
White is a colour that happens to be really tasteful when you talk about creating a home screen setup. It is also one of the most difficult colour to work with. However, if you are using Go Launcher Ex, and you want your experience to be flawless, you can go for White Soul.
Granted, it is one of the most expensive themes you will come across on this list, but after spending some quality time with it, I can guarantee that it is worth the price. All the design elements are nicely taken care of, and there is nothing unnecessary in the theme.
White Soul is undoubtedly worth the price tag it carries.
If Gentleman’s black and gold approach is not the one you are looking for, then don’t worry. There are more options available in the same colour scheme. The icons are a lot better defined, and most of the 3rd party apps are also themed.
You also get matching wallpaper to go along with it, so you won’t have to worry much about finding one after you have downloaded the theme. All in all, Elegant is a pretty decent theme that gets most of the job done and provides nice visuals as well.
If you have liked chalk smeared blackboards as a kid, this is the right theme for you. Although the theme follows the simple black and white approach, the icons look like as if they are made using chalk on a blackboard.
This theme is not something everyone will appreciate as it is very tastefully done, but it does look really well on a majority of devices. On top of that, the theme is also free, so you will not have to worry about paying.
We are finally closing in on all the amazing themes for the Go Launcher Ex, but we are not done just yet. Vividness is another gerat theme that you can download for your Go Launcher Ex.
As the name suggests, the theme focuses on colours, and saturated icons. It is not entirely bad, because I know a lot of people who would prefer having their colours like this. The icons follow a flatter design that was popularized by Google, and is still being used in many themes.
Vividness is also free to use, making it a top priority for many people.
Dark is a theme that focuses on smooth black coloured icons that are just the right amount of black. There isn’t too much colour involved in this theme, and I don’t honestly have an issue with that. Especially when I consider the fact that there are times when I prefer my themes to be darker.
The theme has enough design elements that will keep you satisfied, and I didn’t notice many missing icons either. It may not be the most exciting or lively themes out there but it gets the job done.
If you want to take a break from dark coloured themes, the Life Time theme might be the perfect one for you. The theme is actually simple enough, but it focuses more on lively colours that are going to grace your home screen in one way or another.
The icons are nicely designed, and there are several other design elements making it one amazing theme to go for. If you like icons that look like they are sketched, this is a must-have for you.
The last theme on our list is Obsidian, and it is for people who prefer a glossy look with colorfully dark icons. Yes, that can happen with Obsidian, and I can see how the theme actually follows the nature of the obsidian itself.
The great thing about Obsidian is that it actually themes even the apps that are not well known to the general public, this ensures that your experience remains uniform across the board, and you don’t end up with inconsistent icons.
Sure, Go Launcher Ex might not be in the same spot as it used to be in the old days, but the fact that people still prefer using this launcher can’t be denied. Thanks to a proper support and constant updates, the launcher is still working perfectly fine.
Not to forget, there are so many designers that are working hard to bring the best possible experience of custom themes and icons onto the Go Launcher Ex. This definitely serves as a redeeming quality of the launcher. This was all we had to share about Go Launcher Themes, let us know your thoughts on this via the comments section below.
