Review from Jake Stumbaugh
Great launcher Really clean and simply just the scrolling for widgets through the screened is very lagging please fix thanks
After a short stint with another launcher I am back with Smart Launcher Pro. Runs very well on a Galaxy S7 Edge which has been recently upgraded to Android 7.0 I use the search box to kind my apps far more quickly than looking for them in categories but the choice is there. My one request, please, please, please is to support a live tile for calendar applications so the date changes with the day. Otherwise excellent.
I've tried all the launchers and this remains the best. Small, light, super fast, not bloated with useless features. The app categories makes it lightning quick to find and launch an app. Ideal for a phone - doesn't work quite as well on a tablet where you might want to use widgets. The only way it can be improved is to allow web apps/shortcuts in the app drawer. A few tips: Left-handed mode is actually more natural for a right-handed person; stack apps from the bottom to put everything within reach of a thumb; assign a swipe down gesture to expand the notifications panel; turn off animations to make it even snappier.
I've use a ton of Launchers and Smart is the one I always come back to. I hate icons on my home screen so a quick and organized app drawer that is access with a single screen swipe is amazing. I do wish I could place apps on the search bar like action Launchers. Also the ability to double tap on a icon and have a folder open would be great.
For me the best launcher. Tried many and always came back. Love the simplicity and customization. Only thing i would like to see is being able to choose the browser when i search via integrated search bar. It uses standard browser which sux. But overall love it.
Minimalist and fast! In the same time loaded with time saving essential tweaks. A combination of gestures and pop up widgets let me manage my phone from a single home screen for most activities. . Have been using pro version for over a couple of years now! !
I had been using this launcher for years then switched over to SquareHome 2 after the developer wrote that we'll need to pay again as an in app payment in the free version. That in itself wasn't a real issue, but I did realise how far other launchers have come compared to this launcher, which to be quite honest has never received a decent update in all the time I've had it. That being said, performance and battery usage is excellent, though I'll keep to SquareHome 2.
