  1. 업데이트 했는대 꼭ICS멀티테스킹 창처럼 생긴 프리뷰 화면 멋지내요 ㅋ

  2. 안녕하세요. 너무 훌륭한 런처입니다. 지금 유료버전으로 구입해서 사용중입니다. 그런데 설정을 바꾼 후 (특히에니메이션설정) 나와서 홈버튼을 누르면 화면이 깜빡이면서 런처가 제대로 작동하지않고 종료되는 현상이 있습니다. 제가 가지고 있는 베가x 겔럭시탭에서 동일한 증상이 나타납니다.. 확인부탁드립니다.

    1. 해당 증상은 수정되었습니다.

  3. The 1.5.8 update is buggy. Please read the latest reviews in Play Store.

    1. The bugs will be fixed soon.
      Sorry for the inconvenience.

  4. Would it be possible to have the option to completely disable swiping between screens altogether? Personally, I have a theme that is completely shortcut driven, so having that option would make it feel so much more refined.

  5. hi,
    first of all - your launcher is really awesome and i think it is one of the best at this stuff.

    but with the last update 1.5.13 - specially with the following it is not comfortable at all to work with the launcher anymore:

    - removed software menu key on ICS. Menu will be shown by clicking 'home key' at home instead.

    at my HTC Sensation with ICS 4.0.3 the launcher always popup the menu if i hit my hardware home button from any opened app. this is really unlovely to continue work with the launcher.

    i hope this "feature" will be canceled again at next version.

    thx in advanced.

    1. Thank you for the feedback.
      I will check about the problem. :)

  6. I have SGS2 on ICS, and although I wouldnt change this launcher for no reason any more, I'm having nothing but trouble since this 4.0 android update. On Gingerbread everything worked perfectly with ssLauncher, but now there is an issue after issue on every new update of yours...The most annoying are: Not being able to EDIT shortcuts(their size or text or anything)after initial installment, denying FULLSCREEN function in preferences(I check it but the task bar stays on after numerous apps...), crushing on most live stream applications, when trying to switch to landscape, etc... I hope you would consider this in your next version, since otherwise I have nothing but praise and compliments for you...

    1. Sorry for the inconvenience.
      I will test it all and make it better.
      Thank you.

  7. I'm having a hard time figuring out how to enter the preferences screen. My phone lacks a menu button (htc one x). Is there any other way?

    1. New features of v1.5.16:
      You can use back key instead of menu key.

  8. hi,

    Sorry for my english...

    first of all, your launcher is really awesome and i think it is the best at this stuff.

    I have just a suggest, is it possible to have a new option for positioning a new widget, with three options :

    - only and must align on the grid

    - align only other widgets, and

    - (as now) snap to the grid or other widgets.

    but thank you for this excellent launcher ;)

    1. Thank you for the suggestions.
      I'm preparing a new object positioning system now.

  9. * Force close when adding hot apps (android 2.3)
    * editing existing shortcut color/shadow/etc does not save and apply
    * sometimes unstable

    These need to be resolved for a paid app.

    1. Thank you for the feedback.
      I will check the problems.

  10. I like any changes, it's really good ;)
