Absolute necessity--no question I have developed a bit of skepticism in deeming any newfound app/utility/etc.--whether found on Play market or no--is a merited use of my own time/energy/ bandwidth. I am rather picky & having been raised by nice, caring parents to have polite regard for others & likewise I am often even more picky in recommendations for others. This app is one of VERY few which I predict to be useful to most anyone in one or more ways for their unique purposes.
Thank you so much! It turns out all those guys in all those geeky forums don't always have the answer. I just wanted to remove the text from underneath all my icons on my home screens. I didn't want to have to root. I did not want to install a third party launcher. In this app, I was able to go to applications, create a shortcut, and in the name field it does require at least 1 character. It turns out that the space bar is a character. You have to do each app icon one by one, but that's fine with me it didn't take very long.
Works Well Does exactly what it says and I haven't had any issues. The interface is easy to follow and there not a lot of extra stuff to do. The app gives you all the shortcuts avaliable for an app. Very nice for quick access to text popups for creating text! Also you can try the popup before you create it. And it's available the 'create shortcut' menu on your launcher. No complaints. Good job!
Excellent It's very usefully to go fast wherever you want without opening an app, search and select desired point; just create the shortcut. Can select a desired icon from an external icon pack (not incuded). I like to see a light option for interface too. Only one problem, icons are enlarged and croped and that change their aspect.
Samsung Galaxy S4 KitKat Finally I found an app that can rename the home screen icon labels, AND remembers them on reboot. It may take a few tries to find the right link to make the shortcut to. If choosing the app name didn't work, use the other list and expand the app's links. Look for one that seems most likely - usually ending with "activity". Does not work on all apps that are on the external SD card. On reboot, some of the shortcuts for them disappeared completely. Otherwise a great app - especially for free!
MY SHORTCUT NO LONGER WORKS WITH MARSHMALLOW Have a Samsung Galaxy S5 that updated to android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow) and used this to make a shortcut for call blocking. Since the update, the shortcut no longer works. CONTACTED DEVELOPER WITH NO REPLY. I HAVE SINCE WENT TO A DIFFERENT APP THAT WORKS FLAWLESSLY!!!

- Adapted to AndroidPhone7 theme.
- Changed dialog UI.
- Fixed a bug that the shortcut for Google Play cannot be opened.
