Notice 8/7/22 : The 3.0 update starts development in September as we get ready to launch our new app, Carpenter! GCA Launchers next update will be a partial rewrite as the introduction to Android 13 and new gesture changes will be effecting the current irritations of GCA Launcher. Keep tabs on the telegram channel for development!
GCAL is a launcher app that was initially inspired by Chromium OS and over the years has adapted some of its own individual features that make it unique from other launcher apps on the play store. This is a non-traditional launcher that does not follow the Grid based homescreen concepts. It instead, follows a single screen concept that allows the user to bring to the forefront, apps that are apart of their daily routines and allow quick navigation to the features that matter the most like app shortcuts, notifications, customization and widget access.
Launcher Features : Some of the following features may need to be required to purchase from the add-on store while others come preloaded. You may even notice some core launcher features that have been inspired by competitive launchers on the market.
-Customizeable Material You experience powered by MonetCompat library
-Customizeable homescreen gestures
-Pin Favorite Apps to your Shelf
-Customizeable app drawer with multi search functionality
-Traditional App Groups or folders

-Icon customization with label editing, icon masking, material you theming, icon packs and more!
-Dynamic Badges, Dots, and Badge Counts can be applied to apps to show notification counts as well as preview notifications from the popup menu.
-Indicator badges show the status of an app based on its location and type.
Premium Features are sold individually to keep funding alive for development for the years to come but we also offer oppurtunities to get premium features from the help of the community.
