QuickLauncher – A revolutionary launcher

Author: openhebrew  //  Category: Apps

QuickLauncher is a revolutionary launcher for your device, it automatically learns what are your most used apps, and shows you a SpringBoard-like view of them, accessible from anywhere via a selected shortcut.

Do you have multiple SpringBoard pages, sorted in some way, and you become annoyed that each time you want to launch an app you need to find it through the different pages ? No more, QuickLauncher automatically knows which apps you use most and allows you to access them from anywhere fast and quickly.

Say you are in Facebook app and want to move to the email app, simply trigger QuickLauncher and select the mail app (which if you use frequently will show up as one of the first icons) without going through SpringBoard. As an added bonus the apps will be shown in SpringBoard-style, meaning you will see how many unread mails you have in the mail badge, etc…

The app is so easy to use, it has no settings, you can simply pick whichever shortcut will activate QuickLauncher via the Activator settings.

QuickLauncher is available via the Cydia Store for 1.99$  (Currently does not support iPad).

    Umm, I don’t really see the point of this. Where can this be useful? This looks exactly like SpringBoard so why not just use SpringBoard? The only thing of value is it sorts icons based on how frequently you use them. In terms of efficiency, what’s the difference between pressing Home (1 action) and then opening a new open, versus launching QuickLauncher (1 action) and opening an app. Am I missing something?

  2. Max Says:

    “Opening a new open” I meant to say “opening a new app,” sorry.

    Do you want to do the same for free? install categories… create a folder named Recent and respring… assign the folder to the gesture you want and you have your list of most used apps

    Exactly, the main point here is “it sorts icons based on how frequently you use them.”. When you want to launch another app, usually it will be a frequently used one, and thus it will show up first in the icon list.

    A. Catagories is slow to launch, QuickLauncher works instantly.
    B. Recent is not the same as most used apps. QuickLauncher SORTS the icon by which you use the most, given you faster access to those things. It also automatically learns which they are.

    Why not just use SpringSorter for this?

  7. Cowboy Bebop Says:

    this is the same as spotbright, cept it only keeps about the last 6 apps you used.

    Maybe because there are people who don’t like their normal icon’s layout to be touched, or find SpringSorter too confusing options.

    No, spotbright requires you to go to springboard, then go to spotlight. Also spotbright just keeps your 6 most recent apps, this keeps your 32 most used apps in an convinent way to access from anywhere.

    It says launch anywhere, right? Not!!!! It won’t launch from the lockscreen, so that’s not anywhere. I think in the description it should tell you that!

    Categories is NOT slow to launch especially when used with CategoriesSB

  13. Kingkong Says:

    Wow doesn’t seem like this app is going to sell too well according to these reviews.

    CategoriesSB is another commerical app, which does something else.

    Well, I like the idea anf the app. Kudos and thanks for your work@dev

  16. Rich Says:

    I purchased for .99 and I like it. Its not at all like the above mentioned programs. I have both but this is exactly how I want my favorites to behave. It also is very fast which was another benefit. I blown .99 cents in worse ways than this. Thanks Tom

    You don’t. Buy it from the Cydia Store, or don’t use it.
