Default [APP][2.1+] Smart Launcher

Smart Launcher

Hi everybody, i'm the developer of Smart Launcher. There were other threads on xda about my launcher but I thought it was a good idea to start another one, update by me, to talk about its development. I hope this is not against the forum rules and if it is, i'm sorry.

Smart Launcher is an innovative launcher characterized by a minimalist design, low memory usage and an user-friendly UI that let you start any application with a few taps.
It is currently the only launcher on the store to features automatic cataloging of installed apps!

The developing team is composed by just me, so please be patient if sometimes i'm late with the updates.

Version 1.2.8 (current)
You can download it from the Google Play Store.

play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ginlemon.flowerpro (copy and paste)

Here the beta tester community on Google Plus

Thank you

I'm working on a new version that bring new clock styles, new bubbles style and a strong code optimization in the drawer. There is a bug that cause the launcher to crash on drawer on some devices and I'm trying to understand why this happens. If you'd like to try the new version you can download and install this package. Let me know if any error occurs.

I really do like this launcher. I purchased the pro edition. My two complaints-
1. Can't resize widgets
2. I'd like to be able to add sections/pages/categories. For example, I'd really like to have a favorites category.

1. I hope to manage to add this feature asap;
2. It's not so easy. If the original set of categories change, the auto-catalogation will stop working. I'm searching for a solution...

What device are you using?
I'm using an LG optimus one, it seems the only way to fix the problem to uninstall and install the launcher again.
