Hello,

Does anyone know of a HomeScreen/Launcher app that is similar to "For 2.2+, Tag Home(Launcher)" that is compatible with Android 4.2+ ?

Namely, the categorised app drawer.

I used TagHome on my Nexus One for four years and loved it, but it's not compatible with SGS4/Android 4.2+.

I have done a lot of searching and experimenting, the only one I could find that comes close is "ADWLauncher EX".
But the setup and maintenance of app's categories is horrible compared to the simplicity of TagHome.

***
To clarify the setup, in TagHome you go: edit mode, select an app then choose it's category.
Where as in ADWex, you go: edit mode, select a category then choose all the apps that belong to it.
***

It might not seem like a big deal but it means the difference between scrolling through and scrutinising all your apps only once or many, many times.
Also, after the initial setup, when new apps are installed, there is no having to search for them among all apps in order to categorise them.

I have tried contacting the developers of both apps. No response from either.
But ADW did add an uncategorised tab, though it's pointless with the above described setup/edit mode they use.

I have a very large collection of apps and games and I like trying out new ones regularly. Being able to categorise my apps is important to me.

I'd love to hear any advice.
Thanks in advance.


Aussie Cheers,

Make me a Launcher like TakHome?
Me again..

I came across this "[HOW TO] Create your own Android Launcher (Video Series)" but its way beyond my abilities.

Would I be asking too much for someone here to please make me a Launcher like TagHome for Android 4.2+ ?


Kind regards,

Thank you LS.xD and Kobro, I'll check-out these three launchers and let you know what I think.

Thumbs up
Ok so I've played around with all three for an hour or so and I think I like Go Launcher EX, its really easy to categorise apps.
Smart Launcher was good but adding and changing categories is only available in Pro version.
Nova Launcher has no categories except in Pro version.

Thanks again
