Announcement from Suxsem: JUST RELEASED! - ☆ Slide Launcher ☆ - THE MOST LIGHTWEIGHT AND COOL QUICK LAUNCHER








INTRODUCING SLIDE LAUNCHER


0% RAM AND BATTERY USAGE!
APP SIZE: LESS THEN 2mb!


This is not a traditional launcher (like Nova, Apex, Adw, ecc...) so you don't have to replace the one that you're currently using

Slide Launcher is a fully customizable and extremely lightweight quick launcher that let you to start your favourite apps, direct messages, calls (and everything that can be started) FROM ANY SCREEN!
It uses the Google Now gesture (sliding up the home button) so will always be there, (even in the lockscreen!) and doesn't require any battery-eater service and overlay, unlike others apps of this kind.
This is why Slide Launcher will never run in background and will never slow down your phone or drain your battery.

MAIN FEATURES:
  • Supports apps, direct messages, calls, shortcuts, activities and custom intents
  • Supports themes for the most common launchers (nova, apex, go, ecc...)
  • Different icons arrangements (circle, arc, grid, bar, ecc...)
  • Launch apps in popup mode (floating window) (only for ParanoidAndroid ROM)
  • Different frames can be applied on icons to make them more stylish
  • Add, reorder and delete icons by drag & drop gesture
  • Fully customizable (icons size, space between icons, haptic feedback, background color/image, ecc...)

OTHER FEATURES:
  • Advanced cache engine for an amazing fast start time
  • Fresh user interface accordance with Android style
  • Can be launched with search or camera buttons for devices that don't have the navigation bar

Slide Launcher has just been released so expect improvements and new features in the future!
What are you waiting for? Download Slide Launcher right now... it's absolutely free and you'll love it! ♥

Don't have navigation bar, search button or camera button? We are working on a plugin to start Slide Launcher with a swipe gesture from the bottom of the screen...stay tuned!


Do you have a Samsung device with Android 4.1 or lower? Download this little plugin to avoid some problems: http://tiny.cc/slidelaunchertouchwiz
FAQs: http://tiny.cc/slidelauncherfaqs
Bug tracker: http://tiny.cc/slidelauncherbugs
Feature requests: http://tiny.cc/slidelauncherrequests

An alternative to: "Wave Launcher", "Home Button Launcher", "SwipePad", "Smart Taskbar", "Sidebar" and others.




...or click here to get the apk
Designed for Nexus devices (due to navbar) and ParanoidAndroid ROM (due to floating window) but it works on all device with Android 4.0 or newer
Please, good reviews on Google Play, bad (and good) reviews on XDA, this is the best way to let me improve this app, thanks!

Question FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions):

I don't have navbar, camera button or search button... How can I open SlideLauncher?
We are working on a "hotspot plugin" to open it by swiping from a corner... meanwhile you can download "swipe home button" (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...homebuttonfree) and set it to open SlideLauncher

work in progress
