If that appears like a nightmare to you, you would possibly wish to try AIO Launcher, an fascinating new different that places ALL the data and shortcuts you possibly can ever want on a single scrollable display.
The free app, developed by Evgeny Zobnin, encompasses a easy text-heavy design with a number of sections containing all the pieces out of your final accessed apps and contacts, system data, texts, information, Twitter feed, calendar appointments, and even the present Bitcoin alternate charge in a customizable homescreen.
There aren’t any app icons: simply tags for those you used final, and an alphabetical record of all of your apps that you may drag out by swiping from the left fringe of the display. A search button on the backside left enables you to lookup contacts, apps and the net in a single place.
It’s definitely not for me, nevertheless it’s an fascinating strategy for individuals who don’t get pleasure from twiddling with icons to navigate their system’s interface, and who’d want to see as a lot data in a single display as attainable.
That mentioned, AIO launcher nonetheless wants numerous the work: I’d like to have the ability to resolve what occurs after I faucet on a search end result, customise the typography on the homescreen, add widgets from different apps, and so forth. It’s additionally nonetheless a bit buggy: the search button as soon as disappeared on me for a protracted whereas, and I can’t determine how I obtained it to return later.
If that seems like your cup of tea, give it a go by grabbing AIO launcher from Google Play.
