About this app

Lens Launcher is a unique, efficient way to browse and launch your apps.

Instead of scrolling long lists or swiping through multiple pages, Lens Launcher implements two unique features:

• An Equispaced Grid that displays all of your apps, regardless of screen size or app count.

• A Graphical Fisheye Lens to quickly zoom, pan and launch apps using touch gestures.

The Graphical Fisheye Lens algorithm is derived from methods proposed by Manojit Sarkar and Marc H. Brown. Their original 1993 paper is titled Graphical Fisheye Views.

Lens Launcher is an Android Experiment, written by Nick Rout.

Major contributions have been made by Rish Bhardwaj (@CreaRo).

The source code and graphical fisheye lens academic resources are on Github:

I use this on my 5 year old's tablet and it's great because I can remove everything but what I want him to see. This reduces the complexity of navigating other launchers for him. Would be great for vision-impaired users too, as the apps magnify significantly when you touch them. I've noticed it doesn't always show newly-downloaded apps until restarting on my son's laggy, low-end tablet. Would be nice to have more access to administrative settings from within the launcher. Keep up the great work!

From a developer's standpoint, if you are trying to make money off of a program you've already made, make what costs money be new features, not what was previously free. Also, if you're going to block off a majority of the options for free users, just put them out of the way, rather than leaving the few remaining options that can be changed hidden among the haystack of premium options

Please, I remember using it and it was good, but now, every customization is on the paid version, like even the smallest settings are pay to get. I dont get it why you even kept this free version?? (and no, pro version is affordable but trust me, you shouldnt take the features you offered for free to be included in the paid version you will make people angry) Edit: Thanks for responding and taking actions!
