Launch Now 1.0 released! Update now and get the new features!

Launch Now is a Google Now shortcut replacement app. Where you would normally launch Google now by swiping up from the lockscreen or up from one of the softkeys you can now launch Launch Now. The main idea behind Launch Now is that you favourite apps should never be more then a swipe away. With Launch Now you can easily to right to the browser when playing a game and then go check your twitter without any effort. If you want to you can still access Google Now by adding a shortcut to it in one of the six slots.

Launch Now is built with design and performence in mind at all times. Alot of work has been put into optimizing the app to start fast without you having to wait. Launch now follows the Android Design Guidelines and therefore looks great.

Launch Now is never running in the background and therefore doesn't slow down your phone or tablet.

Another thing would be cool if you could assign activit

    Loving having more options at the touch of a button. Thanks Dev for sharing your work. Please add option for Google now icon instead of yours when sliding up.
