Hello,

I made a video tutorial to present you how to create your own custom launcher.

Tutorial is here :

Launcher created during tutorial is simple but it's the base to create a custom launcher. With that base, you can improve and add features that you want.

Don't hesitate to give me your feedbacks.

This is awesome, I've built a launcher before but never finished it.

Any chance you know the following -

How can I use an intent to launch an app I want? Then save it so when I press the button the next time instead of asking me which app to launch, it'll auto launch the app I chose before.

Basically like a App Chooser.
You press the button, a pop up appears, you select the app and choose save. Then when you press the button again you will automatically open the app you saved. Subscribing to this thread

Thanks bro.
And nice tutorial

Awesome, was thinking of making launcher as my first app.
Only question is which version of eclipse to install? Keppler? Luna? Mars? Which one is best to start building for jellybean 4.1 and current 4.4?

It's best to use the latest version of Eclipse Studio.

Nice! I was thinking about making a launcher as one of my first apps. That will get my indie-company started!
Thanks!
