Let us be Honest. There is no dearth of Launchers on the Google Play Store. Everyday some or the other Launchers are ” Launched”.It is kind of good for the user who is spoilt for choices among them. Today, we are here to review ‘Launch’ By Quixey Launcher. It is still a very new app, so it might have a few quirks and maybe Pros. Read on to find out the full review.
It was a small download of about 10 MB, and we were up and running in almost no time. An amber-colored display greeted us. There was initially a double drawer one with the app drawers and when you swipe right, you would be introduced to the main features of the app which is ‘Deep View Card’ which lets you access all app contents on a single page. It was a kind of good thought to include this feature.What it lets you do is like, suppose you book a cab through, uber from there. Then instead of closing the app down or minimizing it, what you do is scroll down and use another app for instance Zomato. This feature comes in handy when you want to do something quickly or you might want to save a few moments of your precious time.
Another USP of the launcher is what Quixey calls a ‘People Hub’. The launcher learns your calling pattern and using an algorithm gets you suggested contact. It might at a later time be more improved, and we are going to be delighted when it is done.
The app also has a few common gestures, which can be customized using the settings option from the app menu. Gestures like Swipe Up to open the app drawer, swipe down for a quick search are present. Double TAp, Two Finger Swipe Up and Two – Finger swipe Down are also there.
The company also claims a Power Search which lets you search app, contact, messages, Emails, etc. This also comes in handy, and might even save you a few moments. Additionals features like customizing wallpapers, downloading them, app search. The icon could also be customized with personal needs. Social media integrations also would have made it a better overall experience, but they missed on this part.
Now let us come to the experience. The time which we spent on the product we were quite good. The features came in handy almost all the time. We were never overwhelmed with them. But the performance of the app was not very good. The app made our device slow down . Sometimes it worked well with zippy and fast performance but in some instants, it bogged us down and also sometimes crashed. This might be due to a bug or an error of some kind. Nothing an update would not fix. When this is fixed, along with the handy and innovative features, this is going to be one of the coolest launchers around. We sincerely wait for an update and we can’t really wait to try it out.
