"It’s nice to see such a versatile app intended to help you multitask more efficiently." - XDA Developers
1. Why do I have persistent notification in status bar?
From android 4.3+, system will show persistent notification for background app. This could prevent Sidebar Launcher from being killed by system.
2. Why can't I uninstall Sidebar Launcher?
The "Lock screen" feature requires activating device administrator, so you have to deactivate it in security settings before uninstalling.
There are two ways to uninstall it:
1. Open Sidebar Launcher, go to settings page, find the "Uninstall" option. (Recommend)
2. First, go to "System settings" -> "Security settings" -> "Device administrators" deactivate "Sidebar Launcher", then uninstall Sidebar Launcher in a normal way.

1. Another developer has compiled the latest launchers from Google - search for "Digital Cookies" in the play store.
2. Apex Launcher
Google's launcher from Android 4.1 Jellybean, available for you, good gentleperson, right here, right now. No ads. No catches.
WHY DO I HAVE TO CHOOSE THE WIDGETS TWICE?!
Unfortunately it has to be this way. Sorry. It is due to Google cheating slightly with widget security.
I previously said that it "will likely never be fixed by Google, 'cause it doesn't affect them". Well I guess I have to eat my words because in Android 4.1 they fixed it! If you run this app on Android 4.1 it won't ask you to pick your widgets twice. Whether you'll actually ever get Android 4.1 is a-whole-nother story.
Oh yeah, also please don't rate it low because it doesn't have many features. That is kind of the point - it has exactly the same features as in the stock app. If you want more, check out Apex Launcher. :-)
If you want ICS icons, install ICS apps! The launcher does not decide the icons.
This patch is mainly for fixing the issue that the Next Launcher cannot be set to the default launcher properly. Please IGNORE this patch if you don’t have this issue.
If you purchased the launcher from Google Play and if you have to set the launcher every time you restart your device, please follow the steps below to apply this patch.
1. Make sure your Next Launcher is already upgraded v1.19.1 or higher.
2. Install this patch and restart your device.
3. After the device restarted up, select "Next Launcher Patch" as ALWAYS use in the launcher selection window (Please note NOT to select "NextLauncher")
4. Next time you restart your device, the issue will no longer exist.
Feel free to contact us if there is any problem or suggestion.

Launch your favorite apps through the «Home Button Swipe Up» gesture.
• This works best on devices with three soft keys, like Nexus 5 or Moto G (i.e. devices that have virtual «Back / Home / Recent Apps» soft buttons).
• On some devices this app opens when doing a "Long click" on the home button (e.g. the newer HTC and Sony Xperia phones).
• Most Samsung devices are not at all or very poorly supported (since Samsung overrides 'Home Button' behavior with their own software).
→ Test this app if you're looking for a simple app launcher alternative to «Wave Launcher», «SwipePad», «Smart Taskbar» or «Sidebar», or if you want to replace the default «Google Now» home button binding
→ Also check out DG Settings, this integrates nicely into Home Button Launcher

Chameleon Launcher is a Home Screen replacement. This version will run on both phones and tablet devices. It lets you create multiple home screens, each with your own layout of Widgets and Apps. The Chameleon app includes an innovative context based home screen system giving you the most relevant information you want - when you want it.
The Next Generation of Widgets.
Android widgets are not all created equally - and that's the problem - so we decided to raise the bar. The result is widgets that look beautiful together and are as easy to layout as drawing on a screen. Take a look at some of our other widgets or build your own with our custom API.

More from developer
The project was started by me in June 2012 and by October 2012 it was accepted into CyanogenMod. Since then, users of the app have helped greatly in cleaning up the ui, improving the matrix features, and translating the app into all the languages currently available. Without them, this app would be nowhere near as polished as it's become.
Because the app is intended as a full replacement, it's recommended that you hide your default calculator by either disabling it (v4.1+) or using a custom launcher. Otherwise, the similar app names may prove confusing.
Calculator has the following features and more:
-Graphs for X,Y functions
-Hexadecimal and Binary support
-Widget for lockscreen and launcher
-History of previous calculations
-Google Glass support
The app is completely open source and the source can be downloaded at: https://github.com/Xlythe/android_packages_apps_Calculator/tree/ics
A phone dialer that can be quickly launched fom anywhere with SAO Launcher. Gives SAO Launcher the ability to become a full replacement for your native dialer. And it's themeable too, like the rest of SAO Launcher!
The Play Store forces DRM on paid apps, which messes with the extension code. That is why an in app purchase is used instead.
To apply the theme, if you haven't already, download Sword Art Online Launcher. Then, go into Options and select it from the list of themes. It should show up automatically and apply immediately.
A calculator that can be quickly launched fom anywhere with SAO Launcher. Currently only supports 4 functions (+,-,*,/). Great for simple math like calculating tips without fumbling to find the calculator app. And it's themeable too, like the rest of SAO Launcher!

What makes Bandrios interesting is that you start by setting goals. You can set as many as one for each kid on the soccer team you're coaching, or set as few as just one for yourself, to keep track of your smoking habit. Each increment saves the time and place, letting you review past events inside the app's calendar and map.
Goals can be customized and set as either good stigmas or bad, and graphically represent you getting closer or further from your goal. You can set icons, including custom ones from the SD card, and give names to your goal.
The uses are unlimited. Any time you want to keep track of something (e.g. how many goals were scored during a game and by whom, how many cigarettes smoked, how many drinks you had last night, the last time you took your medicine, what birds you saw when birdwatching, etc.), Bandrios can help.
