No other launcher can compete with Lightning when it comes to customizability. Have a look at the full list of features and you will be convinced ;-)
And if an extreme customizability were not enough, Lightning is also very light on memory and a blazing fast launcher. It works like a charm on all phones and tablets, from Android 2.2 up to newest Android versions.
Under the hood, Lightning is propelled by a powerful and unique engine allowing you to arrange your apps and widgets using the best possible flexibility and style.
• It doesn't matter whether you want your icons to be nicely aligned on a grid, or pixel perfect positioned, or even scaled/ rotated/skewed in all directions: Lightning does it all with ease.
• It doesn't matter whether you need a single page, five, or half a million with different setups for work, private use and children: Lightning offers an unrivaled way to manage your precious screen estate.
• It doesn't matter whether your device is one of these beloved pioneer Android phones or if you run the latest and greatest flagship: Lightning doesn't waste CPU nor memory; the app strives to remain light and fast for everyone.
With its wide range of features, Lightning perfectly copes with all kind of home screens: classic, minimalist, gesture based, with side bars or moveable panels,... Lightning doesn't limit you to a particular scheme: it aims to free your creativity instead.
Key Features (not an exhaustive list):
• Highly customizable desktop: change font, size, color, wallpaper, grid lines, folder options, status/navigation bar colors, layouts, scrolling & zooming options, events, actions, gestures, pretty much everything.
• Unique limitless desktop: a desktop is a surface growing as needed, in all directions. Move an icon to the right or left and a new page will be automatically created. And it works for pages above and below too! This means as much space as needed for your apps, and also a much more efficient navigation.
• As many desktops as needed: one for private, work, party, kids, etc. Add, remove and re-arrange desktops at will, each desktop being an independent and unlimited setup.
• Combined grid and free positioning: use the grid to easily align apps, use free positioning to adjust the size, position and rotation of any item (including widgets).
• Pinned items: prevent any item from moving when scrolling your pages. This is handy to create docked elements anywhere on the screen, and more.
• And lots more: enhanced app drawer, panels, Tasker integration, Lock screen, etc. Please visit the developers homepage for detailed feature list, manual and how to’s.
Things to be aware of (please read this notice):
• With its wide set of options and switches, Lightning has a learning curve. But isn't that a small price to pay to get the most exciting and unique home screen ;-) Join the user community to get tips and tricks!
• Problem setting Lightning the default launcher on Jelly Bean? Please install this free app : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=name.kunes.android.launcher.loader

First go to the app's left swipe-in menu by choosing 'Deactivate'. Or uncheck the app from the 'Device Administrator' list under 'Security' in your 'Settings' application. This allows you to uninstall.
# Android 4.4+
Lockscreen Policy is at end-of-life and is no longer expected to work consistently across all devices, because of various changes in KitKat by Google and device manufacturers. Thanks for supporting Lockscreen Policy!
NOT USEFUL on Samsung TouchWiz devices. From version 1.3.2, the app will ask the user to uninstall when run.Tip: Use a third-party SMS app to hide SMS on the lockscreen. Uncheck 'Multiple Widgets' in 'Lock screen' system setting to turn off 3rd party lockscreen widgets.
Disables the camera widget in stock Android (Nexus/GPE). Leave this setting in 'ON' position if you do not have a lockscreen camera widget.
# Android 4.2.x
Known issue under 4.2.2 with widgets disabled:
With widgets disabled, the default clock widget toggles between the bold and the non-bold hour clock every other unlock.
If your device is rooted, use clock hack to get the device to consistently show the non-bold hour clock. Sorry for the inconvenience, but I had no control over this. This issue is fixed in Android 4.3.
If you do not re-root your device after updating to Android 4.3, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED you undo the clock hack before proceeding, or you will have no way of restoring the stock digital clock widget on your device.
1) Run application
2) Make selections, and press activate
3) In the 'Activate device administrator' screen, choose 'Activate'
4) Turn off undesired features using the toggle switches. Changes are made instantly. Make sure your lockscreen is enabled to see the results.
# Hide App Icon from Launcher
If you enable this feature, you can undo this by adding a desktop 'Shortcut' (identified as a 'Widget' on some Launcher) to reopen the app to revert.
#Clock Hack for Rooted devices:
For users running Google firmware, you can now disable the bold-hour lockscreen clock with 'Clock Hack', accessible via the action bar menu even with widgets disabled in the lockscreen.
To undo or revert this, simply rerun 'Clock Hack'. You will additionally have to manually remove the clock widget and readd the desired one for changes to take effect if your lockscreen widgets are on. Note that this setting persists even if you deactivate or uninstall this application. (Can take a couple of screen locks/unlocks to take effect)
There are several downsides to using this hack. You will also lose access to the same widget from your homescreen. This alternate clock also will not launch the alarm app on click, nor does it display your world clocks.
On Android 4.3, to restore the bold hour clock widget, you may need to manually readd the widget by first removing the non-bold hour fallback clock widget.
# Caveats when disabling widgets on Android 4.2
Enabling this will force the lockscreen to use a 'default fallback widget'. On Google builds, the default is the stock DeskClock digital clock widget (with bold-hour style). This behavior cannot be changed.
The bold hour clock only affects official Google builds, and is part of Google's proprietary firmware.
The rooted method implements the following from XDA,
The music controls will still appear as a new page when active, even with the lockscreen policies in place.
I do not collect any personal information with this completely free application.
No permissions other than device administrator required.
# Additional Notes
Uses Stericson RootTools http://code.google.com/p/roottools/

When headphone is inserted, this widget can toggle your headset audio off, to have the sound come out of your built-in speaker or even connected bluetooth.
An indicator dot tells you if sound is going to come through the headphones when there's media sound playing.
Free with no ads
Branch of https://code.google.com/p/toggleheadset2/ for personal use, with bug fixes...
Removed call detection features and on-boot settings. Supports both headphones and headsets. Playing music to bluetooth when headphone/headset plugged in is now possible.
This app just tells Android to pretend as if the headphone is not plugged in even though it is.
Icon with Android asset studio + Tango icon theme + GIMP
If headphone/headset is plugged in with bluetooth A2DP attachment, the volume control might be either bluetooth media or the ordinary media audiostream. That's Android getting confused about where the music is actually being played, because this app pulls the rug from underneath it.
If you have a HTC device with a self-toggling headphone jack, the widget will be updating itself too much.
The way this app works results in conditional unpredictable behavior, particularly with phone calls. Hence, this app is alpha and will stay that way.
Should probably merge this into another app someday, but for now it's useful for various things...
HDMI not tested, don't have the equipment
* * *
A review indicates that this allows the use of the integrated speakers with 1seg (ワンセグ) on the KDDI HTC J One.
To use this, just add 'Blank' from the new widget dialog.
Free with no ads whatsoever, no need for internet access.
Root access required for Android 4.2 and up.
Choose a font scaling size between 55% and 145% (increments of 15%). The effect of this may be limited depending on your firmware. It is not recommended to choose a size larger than 130%.
For reference, the Android AOSP 'Huge' font size setting is 130%. Stock Android selectable settings are: 85% (tiny), 100% (normal), 115% (large), and 130% (huge).
Some manufacturers have removed this from their firmware because of limited system support. Examples of this include all implementations of HTC Sense 3.6 on the EVO 3D, Android 4.0 on the Samsung Galaxy Note.
If you happen to have a HTC phone, you may not notice a difference in your stock launcher and settings, because HTC broke this functionality in their some of their Android builds.
Compatible for Android 4.0+
Requested to make changes to system settings, nothing more.
For some applications to update the chat font size, you may need to close the application and run it again for changes to be applied.
On Android 4.2 and up, FontUp will try to obtain root access on first load, and will take longer to start than usual as a result.
On newer versions of Android, this requires context switching support from the su binary, supported from SuperSU 1.97 and up. Tested by a friend on Android 5 Lolipop.
Makes use of RootTools from http://code.google.com/p/roottools/
Change and set font and text size
Once the app is installed, press the PIP button on your remote once. You will then be asked to complete the action using PIP to Notifications. You may choose 'Use by default' to always perform this action. If you do so, you will no longer have access to PIP even from the built-in TV app.
Tested on Sony Google TV NSZ-GS7 with Android 3.2. Not suitable for higher versions of Android. May or may not work on other Google TV devices.
Also takes over the PIP shortcut from the built-in TV app itself. To workaround this, this app adds a shortcut in your Launcher called 'PIP/TV' which opens PIP directly.
Free, opensource APL2 project: https://github.com/chislon/GTVPIPButtonOverride/
Reversing the changes:
To revert to original settings, go to Device Settings->Applications->PIP to Notifications, and clear defaults, or simply uninstall the application.
**This app has very limited functionality past Android 2.3 because of Google's changes to Android. The only option available for most users past Android 2.3 is the trigger that turns WiFi off when toggling on airplane mode.
Different devices will have different behavior, as I do not have the resources to test this workaround on every device. **
If you hate it when your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth get disabled by turning on airplane mode, here your fix!
Perfect for turning an old smartphone into a dedicated MP3 player or PDA. Just take out the SIM, use this app, and leave the phone in airplane mode.
Completely free with no ads
Once the settings in this app have been applied you can safely remove this application - they are written to your system settings and are permanent until a factory reset.
May not work on all devices!
Some manufacturers have locked down some of these settings, rending this application useless in some cases. I have no way around this, nor can I tell which devices specifically with which firmwares do not support the functionality in this app, unfortunately.
Known not to work in Android 4.2 because Google has made airplane mode settings 'read-only' when accessing them from third-party apps.
# Permissions used
* write system settings - that's what this app does...
# How to use this app
Choose the options you want enabled or disabled in this application. Your changes will take place immediately.
You can view the changes in Android's settings application, typically under 'Wireless Settings'. Wireless settings can be launched directly from the bottom item in this application for your convenience.
Example Use Case 1:
Allow toggling of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth when airplane mode is enabled, but still have airplane mode toggle Wi-Fi and Bluetooth off ->
on, on, on, on
Example Use Case 2:
Make Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggling independent of airplane mode ->
off, off, on, on
Example Use Case 3:
Don't let Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggle when airplane mode is enabled, and toggle them off when airplane mode is enabled ->
on, on, off, off
When launching wireless settings, your changes may not be visible right away. In this case, hit the 'Back' button on the device or kill the 'Settings' app with a task killer. Your changes will be reflected upon a new restart of the wireless settings task.
# What this does
When airplane mode is enabled, the default behavior is to disable the 'radios' on the device. That would include your cell radio, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.
A good app to go with your backup Android device to reduce extend battery life.
Using hidden functionality built into Android, this application does one of two things:
1) Prevent airplane mode from toggling your Wi-Fi or Bluetooth radios.
(This also has the effect of allowing your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to stay on after reboots when airplane mode has been enabled.)
2) Allow Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to be toggled when airplane mode is enabled.
(No longer possible past Android 4.0)
# More Notes
Your settings should persist after you reboot your device. Feel free to remove this application to free up some space when you are done with it.
The default manufacturer setting varies depending on the device. As a result, this app may not prove to be of use to every device.
Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, airplane mode, flight mode, system tool
This overrides the call button long-press action, such as Voice Dialer, with a task that has minimal overhead.
Should also work for bluetooth headsets.
Completely free with no ads.
1) Perform a long-press of the call button
2) In the 'Complete action using' dialog, check the 'Use by default for this action' checkbox, and select '! No Long-Press Call'
3) Your call long-press should now effectively do nothing.
Includes a long-press call button manager.
In technical terms, this overrides the intent action for 'VOICE_COMMAND'. If this intent is not triggered when you perform a long-press of the search button, this application does nothing for you.
This application is useless on the following devices:
* Other devices that do not broadcast the intent for 'VOICE_COMMAND'
* Devices without a call button
Used to clear default actions for Android 2.1 and below. Does nothing for Android 2.2 and up.
I had trouble getting this to work in the Android 3.x and 4.x emulators. The Android API documentation does not tell me that the intent would be disabled in those versions of Android, so I have elected to allow for these users to download this application even though it may be untested for their devices. Please report back to me if you find that it does not work on your device.
Tested for Android 1.6-2.3.
