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!

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!

Swiping from the menu is not very convenient for me on Touchwiz but I understand you did this way so it won't use ram. Since I use Nova, I custom set gesture to launch from home and it works really well.

One suggestion from me pls put check box when we add application so I won't have to keep adding one app and then go back in and add another app over and over. Check box multiple apps to add will solve this problem I think. Just my 0.02c

Works well on my Note II. Though I hope in a future update an option to hide the status bar. I hid my status bar through Apex Launcher. I just want to keep the aesthetic (it looks nicer that way) and I also use gestures to access it,... But thanks for this!

This is so cool! I'm very happy that this isn't activated by sliding from any screen edges as that input is way too inconsistent or gets in the way of other swiping commands.

    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/details?id=com.matthewma.swipehomebuttonfree) and set it to open SlideLauncher

    work in progress ;)

    hi guys :) thanks for your feedbacks!

    unfortunately this is a VERY bad period for me... had a lot of university exams and i got epstein barr virus (mononucleosis) so i'm very off the game at the moment... anyway i think that i'm almost overcomed the worst part... i will restart to work on slide launcher as soon as possible, hope to release something with xmas holidays :)

    to do:
    - finish the hotspot plugin (so users without navbar can use my app without 3d party apps)
    - add some long press alternative behaviours

    stay tuned, bye and thanks for your interest! :)
