The finger friendliest way of Starting Apps on your Smartwatch.

Totaly user configurable:
Layouts 2x2,3x3, 4x4
Background Color
Possible to add Apps, Settings Shortcuts, Contact Shortcuts
Possible to save layouts

Swipe left or right to change layout.

Adaptive Mode:
1. Make a list with the apps launched the more often with any of the other list.
2. Allow to sort any list following their app usage.
3. Possible to stick the number of apps you choose at the beginning of an adaptive list.
4. Filter the apps usage reports (by date, hours, location...) to get the right apps when you need them.
5. Sync or merge reports between android phones using it.
6. Backup your data so that every time you get a new phone, the app usage data just get bigger and the adaptive mode better.
** This is still a beta version with only one app list and basic adaptive mode **
In current state, the adaptive mode will only sort the app list by globlal usage and can't be disabled.

Kinda nice, but there's no way to see the time on it. I'm pretty partial to seeing the time on my watch, LOL.

This should be a home screen widget.. would be perfect for novalauncher or any other third party launchers for that matter..


Kind of pointless if you ask me..

i have exactly the same feeling. no offence, but i can't find a single use for this that i won't get with nova launcher.
i'm not a developer, but i think we need more apps that are optimized for gear - and i don't mean a launcher like this, but apps like voice recorder, music player, perhaps a text reader.

It's not a launcher, it's to be used with other launchers to access easily the apps you use most.

Good for you getting an app made, can you give us some examples on where we could use it?
