an alternative amongst launchers.

some instructions:
- at appdrawer you'll find options to set up desired providers. to get to appdrawer use any of back, menu or home buttons.
- provider icon long click reloads the content with new info, if there's any.
- clock click shows next alarm, long click opens clock up.
- item clicks in list shows detailed information where available.
- long item clicks removes them from view.
- icon in detailed view (or menu button) brings up more options, like share, comment etc.
- long click on app icons in appdrawer to create group/uninstall/hide/move into existing group

any feedback appreciated.

download at play store (or download beta below):

issues

nov.8 update:
- many, many bug and crash fixes, improvements and optimizations
- added: 7 day weather forecast
- added: extra options for cloudiness map, all layers to toggle
- added: new appdrawer indicator
- added: option to set order of providers
- added: option to switch indicator and provider layout
- added: basic music player (album palyer at the moment), more options to be added later
- added: extra messaging under sms (line, kakao, skype, whatsapp, viber, hangout, tango)*
- free version provider count increased from 4 to 5
- removed: pre ICS support. really sorry about that.

* note: this uses accessibility service. some samsung users may have to turn tts off to avoid problems. if app crashes, accessibility for listener must be turned off and on again to resume funcionality.

beta is signed with store key, so you can update your market version.

Brilliant for minimalist me

I think this is a really awesome concept and am trying to use it as a daily driver.

Of course I would love a lot more customization.

How about swipe gestures on the start screen especially to pull down the notification toggles? Toggles are something I want quick access to.

Battery notification on the screen?

Will be watching this keenly. Play store listing sometime soon?

whatsapp and viber don't provide api, the only way the get notified is through accesibility. I'll check how this could be implemented when g+ and twitter is done.
one page notification is a good idea though.

Toggles are something I want quick access to.

I'll think about toggles.
actually battery indicator is there and it notifies when charge goes below 15% or so.

Are you still updating this app? Pretty cool idea and UI. Suggestions:
1) Add Google+, Twitter, and Instagram feeds. (The app says their is twitter, but I can not enable it. Can you make it use falcon pro, the twitter client app)
2) YouTube subscriptions. We add our account and then our YouTube feed comes up in your app. Whenever there is a video in our feed, show the title, who uploaded it, and the video thumbnail. If getting the video thumbnail is hard or impossible, you could just make the picture that comes up with the video be the YouTubers account picture. Also, not asking for it to show an actual video, just the thumbnail and text. Not the description either, it would be too cluttered.
3) Adw icon themes for the app drawer.
Love this app, wish it could be my main launcher but too much force close.
Cheers!

yes, still working on it, busy coding.
g+ and twitter is greyed out as they're no ready yet.
other providers will be added later when every other is working.
if there are bugs and force closes, then please, please add logcat and a small description of it, otherwise I won't know what to fix. thank you!
