Add a cool launcher widget to your phone
This app is actually a widget you can add to your home screen. It combines your favorite and more often used apps into one easy to laucher. For most apps, you can swipe out through the circle to instantly start the app. The CircleLauncher app also slightly animates each of your icons when you touch them.
This easy to use app makes your home screen unique and fun to use. It's adaptable to most apps and only takes one swipe to open.
This app can be hard to find once installed. It also can't be moved to the SD card.
!NEW! moved swipe functions to new free app 'CircleLauncher Swipe'
You can add some frequently used apps, contacts or bookmarks to this launcher and start those apps, contacts or bookmarks with one click from a circle, a horizontal or a vertical line. Use the included launcher icons, load your own image or use a icon from any icon pack (CircleLauncher icon packs, ADW and Go Launcher icon packs supported). If you slide over the icons, they are animated a little bit mac-like ... just try it!
Parallax FX [beta]: look behind the widget like on iOS7! This effect can be enabled in the settings: 'More Settings' > 'More ...' > 'Parallax FX' - the result is highly dependent on the sensor in your phone ... some are perfect, other will not work very well. Looks best with '3D Image Live Wallpaper' :-)
Additional features in the full version:
- custom icons for the icon on the homescreen
- support for ADW icon packs for the icon on the homescreen
- vertical and horizontal launcher versions
Some icons in the screenshots are from 'CircleLauncher IconPack One', 'Minimal UI', 'Glasklart Go Nova Apex Theme', 'Circles Theme', 'Motif' and 'Rain' - the clock is 'lockscreen watch'.
Please don't move the app to the sd card - it won't work!

I love this app. But hate it too. How do you get back to settings for a circle???? I need to be able to add new apps to a circle.
Slightly aggravating when testing settings
Very useful,saves alot of screen screen space
The only thing I wish I could toggle is the little menu that pops up on the bottom. I've been using this app for years and just long press the icon to get settings.
Dec 2014 As per another review, app updates and icons disappear. Samsung Note 4 with no home page program. Also have bought 3 icon packs but no longer able to apply any. In one pack 3 worked but no longer do so after update. They used to all work on my Note 2. 14th Dec: developer communicated regularly regarding investigation, even on weekend, suggested reinstall which didn't work but reinstall o
Top app buy a top developer. Great functionality and options. Good updates and amazing support!
Sony stock home launcher (Xperia Z & Xperia Z2 Tablet) both auto updated and wiped ALL icons, the phone version still had my last pre-update backup but only restored 1 of my 8 icons, not happy
