2 - In the following dialog, select "Launchy 1". It should be already checked.
3 - A widget will appear on your home screen with the green Launchy "Edit" icon.
4 - Click the Launchy "Edit" icon to enter Launchy edit screen.
5 - In the edit screen, add your favorite items to the Launchy. Use the "Configure" screen to customize it.
6 - Go back to your home screen by pressing back or the home button.
7 - The newly added Launchy will show your items as a scrollable list.
8 - Resize the Launchy as you would resize any other widget.
9 - Add another Launchy with different items: add a new Launchy to your home screen, but this time select "Launchy 2" in step number 2. You can add up to 10 individual Launchy widgets. Each Launchy can have its own items and appearance customizations.

I love this app. I've used Multicon since I got my first Android phone, way back in the Froyo era, but nobody's maintained Multicon for ages and it's starting to have problems with newer systems. Launchy is basically Multicon on steroids, equipped with a jet pack and an AK-47, bringing you a slice of homemade apple pie. And icon-pack-friendly too! Nice work, developer! Couple of points in response to other reviews: yes, the UI is complicated; that's because the app has a million capabilities and you need to be able to get to all of them. It takes a bit of getting used to, but it made total sense to me after about five minutes of playing around with it. And yes, I had the problem with the widgets not reappearing after the phone restarts. I use the Nova launcher, and what fixed it for me was opening Nova's config menu, pressing the "volume down" button, which enables the "labs" menu, and then checking "Restart widgets on resume" on that menu. I'd prefer not to have had to do that, but now that I've done it everything works like a champ.

I like it a lot. And because it's a widget it doesn't screw with your phone and glitching out. It's got a lot of great features without needing to pay. I think it needs two additional features for five stars: allow the scrolling to snap to a grid, that way icons will be always aligned when you swap between pages or neighbouring widgets. Second, the ability to remove the little settings icon that I keep accidentally pressing because it's too close to the app in the upper right corner.

After trying numerous other apps this is the only one that could do exactly what I want - fit 14 apps in the space of one row on my home screen, with the option to automatically add an icon pack or customise each icon using desktop visualizer, and without needing a separate launcher. There is also a vertical scroll option, no ugly headers or backgrounds, and no silly limits to the number of widgets you can have or to the number of apps you can add to a widget. The paid-for version gives you options for the size of the donation that you wish to give to unlock full features, all very reasonable. Overall it was super easy to get everything setup exactly how I wanted, even in the free version, and every app launched seamlessly. It was worth giving a donation just to unlock the option to change the icon sizes! Only improvement I could suggest is allowing more columns with a horizontal scroll option, but really the features available make it customisable enough to keep most people happy!
