Just gave it a quick test here and I must say it works pretty well. Specially after I assigned it to a gesture on homescreen.

Its very good, very smooth. You hace just cleared my homescreen of lots of apps. The only thing left in my homescreen are Dial an App, Browser, Google Maps and Iron Man 3.

Aesthetic wise, I feel like it needs more improvement, but hey, thats only graphical part. the core part is flawless.

Suggestion: Perhaps user will be able to 'dial up' settings? You know, like going directly to the WiFi settings, or directly to storage setting to eject USB on the go, or more importantly turning on the USB debugging inside the developer mode. I'm sure this will be a major request. Although you should also add a setting whether to enable dialing up shorcut settings or not, not all people want it.
Suggestion: I guess you need to add a setting page if you want to corporate more feature, as most people want to use certain feature and dont want to use certain feature.

Idea: There are some people that hide certain app and dont want people to see it, I guess it will be a bad situation if your app shows their hidden app.

Great app, will they be a paid version? Not a fan of the ads, would give a couple bucks to get rid of them!

I suppose you wouldn't have to type the words after the space as , as soon as you are type the first word i.e the one before the space you will have that app in the grid already, for example: typing "Google" will give u "Google Play", " Google Music" , "Google Music" etc already on scren making it easier to choose, also you can easily type just the word after the space like "Music" that will give you "Google Music" too thereby saving an additional button press for "space"

correct me if I am wrong.

Interesting app. I have a couple of suggestions on how to improve it more:
  • The app shouldn't show up in recent apps, as people will probably access it through a shortcut and use it to launch other apps
  • It would be better user experience if the dialer was drawn over your current app, instead of using your wallpaper as a background -- this would give a more fluid app launching and changing experience instead of the current feeling of being taken away from your current activity
  • It would be nice to be able to change the app icon grid and icon sizes -- some people will want fewer but bigger icons, some people will prefer longer list with smaller icons
  • Since there's quite a lot of screen space for listing the apps, you could implement (an optional) row of recently launched/recently used apps. I think a lot of users are really just switching between 4-5 most common apps and this would make the interaction faster.
  • In addition, there could be an option to pin a favorite app(s)
  • Lastly, it's not at all obvious how one can change the keypad colors (long-press on clear seems to do it), and you are left wondering if there are other settings available as well (like changing the grid size)

Like I said, the app looks great and works well too.
