Blur - A Launcher Replacement
by: Luke Klinker • 3.3K
The Google Now launcher offers information at your fingertips based on context. However, that info is restricted only to what Google wants to tell you. The Blur Launcher offers a customizable alternative: a launcher similar in function, but with a Pages feature that developers can modify into full-screen widgets immediately accessible with a swipe of the finger.
Choose which pages you'd like to appear when you swipe right. The default options are just standards like a calculator and a weather widget, but the possibilities are wide open for devs to make of it whatever they'd like. You can also modify what info cards appear for you when you swipe up from the bottom of the screen. Appearance is all totally tweakable too, of course.
The Blur Launcher is a good idea in concept, but more devs will need to get on board in order for it to provide sufficient added value to sway users away from the standard, pre-installed Google Now Launcher.
