ssLauncher Is Looking To Fit In Among The ADWs, Launcher Pros And GO Launchers Of The World

As we’ve mentioned before, launchers are a dime a dozen on the Android Market so when we take the time to show one off, there’s usually something “special” about it.  Next up of note worthy launchers worth mentioning is a little light weight launcher that goes by the name of “ssLauncher“.  In a world of ADW’s, Launcher Pro’s and GO Launchers, ssLauncher begins setting itself apart by providing animations that give it the appearance of a magazine page turning when scrolling from one screen to another.  Overall, the animation is pretty cool and there’s some great functionality as well.  The ability to theme it up is there along with an array of other features that set it apart from the rest of the competition.  Check out some of the features from the dev below:

  • Decorate screen with a variety of styles for shortcuts and widgets.
  • Easy and quick access to pages for contacts, bookmarks, application drawer, application group.
  • Many useful features of application drawer: showing/hiding app, marking star for favorites apps, changing application icon and name, uninstalling app and so on
  • Create application group and manage list by drag and drop.
  • Save and load your theme, page layouts and settings.
  • Convert the saved theme file to apk. (contact us by e-mail for more informations)
  • Hide status bar, open status bar by swiping down.
  • You can implement nice screen without launcher 7, dvr, minimalistic text, wp clock, clockr etc.

If you’re ready to give this launcher a try, then head on over to the Android Market for the download or check out the QR available below.  We’ve also provided a number of screen shots of the app courtesy of the Market after the break.  Feel free to let us know what you think in the comments.


About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.
