Great It is a fairly useful app, it can all but completely replace the standard launcher/home. Set up with a camera background it looks like you really are pulling up the SAO menu! (make sure the camera background app only has access to the camera and gallery!) there are times when the launcher doesn't start up, but this is easily fixed. Something I'd like to see, would be for more of the SFX to be put in (the SFX for when scrolling through a list of items, and some of the other button press sounds).
Quite cool The general idea of it is pretty good. The actual functionality of the drop down menu isn't too bad either like for quickly sending sms and using the calculator (which I payed extra for, so I could use it without having to switch the screen), the simple things it does well. As with other reviewers there are still niggles that need to be ironed out. Such as the mms feature would be nice, not that I use it, and being able to delete or sort messages.
90% percent ready I truly like this launcher. Only a few things are missing from it. We need the ability to turn off the wrap-around ability when scrolling through certain things including numbers and text messages. Aside from that I'd also like to see the app be a launched from the the very beginning of turning on your phone entirely instead of us having to click on an app in order to launch the launcher. Even more so any notification should allow response such as kik. Make my phone an SAO device for 5!
Issue with background apps Using the sao launcher shortcut system to access apps works fine. But if you minimise the app it doesn't remember where you were and reopen, it opens a new instance of the app, which can get pretty demanding on your RAM and cause issues with refreshing apps like facebook if you don't remember to keep on top of your background app management. Also if you're half way through a text and anything else happens on your phone like an incoming call or text or notifications from other apps, SAO launcher closes
Few suggestions I love the idea of this app and am surprised how much interaction there is between everything. I think the biggest things that need work are the messaging portion. It still works very well but one big down fall is that there is no MMS support. Also, that when you hit the red X for message the whole app closes instead of just the message. Plus it does take time for the new and sent messages to appear for the inboxes. But I do like this app alot and love how the equipment slots are for app shortcuts,
Great but some bugs I dont know if it just because i have the free version, but there are some bugs that can be worked out. The two that have plauged me the most is the app menu going blank from time to time and the sms not always getting a text though the regular messaging will. Otherwise it is amazing, and im soon getting the pro version. I suggest this app along with the sao health bar widget. One other thing that isnt an issue but qould be a great update is the swipe lag. If it could be a little more quick it'd be perfect.
