  2. Hi I'm a recent convert, and only by chance did I come across the little gem while searching for tablet launchers. As I love just customising I do have a habit of messing things up, which brings me to the question how do I access the launcher preferences when I changed the default setting of double tapping the back button.

    1. You can show the menu up by pinch to zoom in gesture(two fingers closer).

    2. Thank you I have since paid for sslauncher original I'm using a different launcher on my phone and will be changing over to ss. I think that the launcher far exceeds the small amount charged. There are features in your launcher that I don't have with the one I use for my phone. While it took me all up of 10 minutes to understand the tweaks (which is nothing) compared to others I've tried and uninstalled after a few hours of trying to understand them ssLauncher is definitely user friendly.
      Thanks again.

    1. Generally, the issue is from Google Play application. It is usually fixed just by rebooting the device. If not, try to clear the data and cache of Google Play and reboot the device please.

    2. Hi when I am customising icons and choosing the style there is an additional tab shame about no integration but not a concern I'll have fun customising it as well

      Delete
    3. You can register your own style. Try to press 'save' button for a shortcut you styled. It will be added into the "additional" tab.

  5. Thanks for clearing that up I have to go through the tutorials (which I skipped), I appreciate your assistance. No matter what you always respond quite quickly.

  6. I am still using SS (I can't get used to Total yet) I have 5 pages and each page has it's own picture. It takes a second or so for that picture to show up. Is there a setting for that, I can't seem to find it.

    1. Basically, full page image requires much memory and time to load. But Total is more optimized for it than ss. I recommend you to try it. It will be unfamiliar to the ss users at first. But I believe you will find how it is easy and intuitive to use. Just remember this: You can do almost and more in Total than ss.

      Delete
    2. I know...I have messed with it. I just know SS on the back of my hand...it's hard to learn new stuff. Is there a page to explain everything.

      THANKS so much for putting out the best launcher on the market. I love it. I have used a bunch of them. I love SS/Total!!

      Delete
    3. I'll make some tutorials for it. By the way, it is not hard to learn. Here are some tips for you:

      0. forgot the way of using in ssLauncher!

      1. DO NOT turn off the tips while using.

      2. keep in mind that you can do almost everything and more than ssLauncher more easily.

      3. there are 5 types of objects: text, image, object group, "internal widgets"(app group, app drawer and contacts) and application widget(3rd party widget). That is, all is object can be resized and customizable, including even app drawer!

      4. the first 3 (shortcuts) can be assigned some actions for tap, swipe up, swipe down and so on. These are same to the "shortcut" in ssLauncher.

      5. Important: "Long press it, if you want to changed it!". (If the objects are "internal widgets", long press the edge of it.)

      6. Then you can put it into "edit(resize) mode" with the top and bottom menu bars.

      7. Investigate the buttons in the top/bottom menu bar. You can easily guess what it does.

      8. You can select a component object (like text or image) in the "object group" by tapping it again while the "object group" is in edit mode. Then you can customize the component object.

    4. WOW...this is great! thanks for sending this.

      I started working on this last night. It's different, but I think I got it.

      I would just like to know what Total could do. Like I don't know what "internal widgets" are.

      Delete
    5. re: total

      can you have a app group have 1 icon so when you click it, it will show all the apps in that 'folder'

      example: I create an app group with all my email clients in it. I want to just have 1 mail icon, then when I click on that 1 icon, I see all of my mail apps.

      Delete
    6. Just create a shortcut with an image and text, and assign the folder for tap action.

      Delete
  7. Total Launcher:
    Can i ask you to implement a features? In text oprtion and in dynamic image too there's information related to data signal (strenght or on-off)
    For me and i think for many people can be useful to have displayed the kind of signal too, like 2G, Hspa, Hspa+ or LTE.
    So, an option on text or dynamic image would be great.

  10. Hi I would like to ask you if you will update the SSlauncher in the future or only the total launcher, if the total launcher will be payed and if i can use a theme from sslauncher in total launcher

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No more features will be added to ssLauncher. This is the reason why "ssLauncher the Original" works as a key of Total Launcher. You can almost thing and more in Total Launcher than ssLauncher. But the ss themes are not compatible with Total Launcher, because there was so many changes in the source codes. Sorry.

  11. Hi! I'm here to tell you that Total Launcher is awesome. This is the best Launcher! Thank you for this app. SSLauncher orig. was also great....

  12. Thanks for all your hard work on ssOriginal. I've been using it for the last two weeks And its really fun and looks dayum good.

    Question: is there a way to hide or disable the stock battery indicator? I'd like to replace it with the Tweaksbox settings for a circle battery icon. Sadly, ssLaumcher simply ignored the setting for "HIDE CLOCK". Is there any file I can delete or script I can write to kill or toggle your battery icon. Thanks.

    1. If you are talking about the icons on the status bar, the launcher cannot customize it.

  14. May I ask you another questions? Is it possible to show the counter how many new notifications I received in my notifications bar (for every app)?
    Example: I received 1 new sms, 1 new gmail and I have 1 missed call...so there a 3 new notifications in my notifications bar...so I want to show the counter "3" on my homescreen/main screen - the counter for all new current notifications/events I missed....

  16. Hi, I'm running SSLauncher the Original on 4.1.2. I can't swipe from page to page. I've gone through every setting I can think of. I have a main page with a weather/clock widget, and an app page. What am I missing?

    1. Please confirm if "Disable swiping" option is unchecked in the preferences.

    2. I deleted the page and made a new one, and it's working fine now. Must have fell in a crack in the programming. I believe I deleted all the default pages except the credit page, made a new main page, deleted the credit page, and made a application list page.

  18. bro, im new with total launcher and im very interested in this launcher. so cool.I have some question for this launcher :
    + the vibration when tap or use gesture on shorcut only work when system vibration is activated ? if this is right, could you make it work individual ?
    + when i use dynamic image with clock type, any way to hide the clock symbol?
    + when moving or change the item size, can i put the value directly ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 1. Individual vibration requires a new permission to be implemented. My policy is "less permission".
      2. I cannot guess what "clock symbol" means. But you can change each image element in the dynamic image. If you wanna hide it, just change it to transparent color.
      3. It is under consideration currently.

      Delete
    2. thank u for reply and sorry for my bad english
      + about the individual vibration, it's just my hope :D becouse in my opinion that permission is not too important :D
      +clock symbol is hours hand and minutes hand. I want the dynamic image change according to time but i dont want to see the clock that appear above the image

      Delete
    3. You can customize the each image of the clock.

    4. i meant, how to hide the hours hand

    5. As I said before, you can customize a dynamic image.
      Just tap each of images and change it to a transparent image or color in the edit mode of the dynamic image.

  19. I remember your square home launcher that has nice image widget. Could you consider to add it to total launcher, and shortcut or customisable widget to control music. In my opinion this will make launcher more flexible in design.

    3. You can apply saturation and color filter for each of image objects and app drawer/app group.

  23. Hi, I'm trying to emulate a menu with Popup Widget 2 with Previous and Next page buttons. However, I cannot get the 'Previous' buttons to work because it refuses to open a popup that it just closed (the previous page).

    For instance, I have popup menu 1 and popup menu 2. Menu 1 has a next page button, that closes it and brings up menu 2. Menu 2 has a previous page button that is linked back to popup menu 1, however, it will not popup.

    Is there a way to work around this?

    Thank you very much.

  28. Hi, I'm using paid versione of SSLauncher on a Minix device with Android 4.4.2. I can't find a way to open the top notification bar in the home screen. The notification bar appears for a second and suddently closes up and I can't expand it.

    1. Notification bar is a part of the system. An app cannot prevent to expand it. I think it's a firmware issue.

    2. It only happens with SSLauncher. Everything works perfectly with other launchers (tried SquareHome also), so I think it's a SSLauncher related issue.

    1. It's a issue from Whatsapp widgets. Some widgets such as Google Keep and Whatsapp have similar issue and I could not resolve it in my side. One tip is to use "back" button, not "home" button when you close Whatsapp app. Thanks.
