Review from Noor Ahmad
Awesome Just one complaint... the apps on my sd card have started to disappear from the app drawer. Its a hassle to transfer all my apps back to the internal storage.. Pls fix this
Edit :Was 5-star review. Ads became more intrusive and more battery-draining. Ads claim that switching to pro gets rid of ads. Fine. Went to install pro (because it really was a lovely launcher), only to find that now it ALSO contains ads. WTF, Smart Launcher Team? Guess it's time to switch to a new Launcher.
I really enjoy this launcher, probably the one that I am most comfortable with at the moment. However, there is something that REALLY bothers me. I don't understand why the Search bar doesn't use the default keyboard, and uses a custom keyboard with no prediction or any other features. I rely so much on SwiftKey and I get really irritated when using the normal keyboard. Am I missing something and there is a way to switch to the keyboard that you normally use?
Asked dev to add ability to hide the playstore icon they have on top right but there has been no response. Version earlier than this had option to disable promoted apps. But latest update silently removed that option. This is like back stabbing the users. Uninstalled!
One launcher that i'll use forever. I wasnt a fan of custom launcher when i was on my xperia. Now that its broken and i have to switch to an old LG, i gotta admit that smart launcher is one of the greatest launcher there is. Very light, pretty and functional, custom icon, great drawer and home, and tons i cant name here. Use this launcher. Youll see how elegant can a cheap phone be.
I purchased pro only for widget functionality but it Has no option to add widget on the 1st home screen. Can add widgets on subsequent home screens but not on the 1st one. The 1st screen has an option to add only clock widget which is a major disadvantage as most important widgets run on 1st screen for quick viewing. Kindly modify this issue to include multiple widgets on 1st screen also otherwise purchasing the pro version is not that fruitful....
The lack of multiple screens in the free versions makes this virtually useless. And the features of the paid version don't justify the hefty price tag (£8 at time of writing) - they're nothing groundbreaking that you wouldn't find on other home screen apps.
