For users of the latest Android version (4.0 ICS) this application requires root.

Always looking what application shortcuts to place on your homescreen? Never sure you add shortcuts for applications that you really use the most? Stop looking!

Top Shortcuts automatically creates home screen shortcuts based on application startup statistics. This way it allows you to only get the shortcuts to the most frequently used apps on your homescreen.

The shortcuts can be added to your home screen using 4 widgets of different heights which you can highly customize. You can specify the number of shortcuts that will be placed next to each other and you can specify the number of rows that will be displayed inside your widget. This allows you to add up to 16 app shortcuts to one homescreen row.
The first widget you add contains the shortcuts to your most popular apps, the second will contain the less popular ones etc.

You can also manage your own categories. You can assign a label to a category, specify the apps that belong to this category/label and create a widget containing only the shortcuts for this category. So you can have only the most frequently used apps from a predefined subset in a widget on your homescreen. E.g. you can have a category 'Games' containing 16 games and your widget will only show the 8th most popular ones, the ones you play the most.

Top Shortcuts also detects unused apps for you which you can easily uninstall from within the application.

Initially the application will gather statistics from last ~week but will sum up all statistics it then gathers.

Features:
✓ Gathers application startup statistics
✓ Also includes your most visited bookmarks
✓ Create multiple widgets, until there are no more shortcuts to apps or bookmarks left.
✓ Create personalized homescreens by customizing the number of shortcuts inside the widgets
✓ Personalize your widgets even more by defining categories using labels and dedicate a widget to a certain category.
✓ Usage statistics and widgets updated automatically once every 24h.
✓ Adjustable widget background
✓ Hide text labels from all widgets
✓ Exclude shortcuts from widgets that already have another place on your homescreen
✓ When you delete an app the widgets are automatically updated to display the correct situation
✓ Clean up the statistics to start with a clean measurement, starting the day of clean up
✓ Detect unused apps on your device
✓ Uninstall unused (or used) apps and bookmarks
✓ Shows you when you last started an app
✓ Change shortcut labels
✓ Customize all icons: choose your own for your shortcuts

    Great idea and implementation. It's a real pity it was last updated 2 years ago

    Could be better
    Would be better if it had a multiicon function too where you could just pick your icons
