ReLaunch is a launcher that categorises your apps into 9 unique categories
ReLaunch is a special kind of launcher that can be accessed form anywhere at anytime. It coexist with your current launcher, that's it, it's like an addon with a specific purpose: helping you to launch apps faster than ever before.
First, once installed it will ask you to categorize your app. It does it automatically. When finished, you can activate the launcher just by touching the right or left edge of the screen. A sidebar will show up with 9 categories: read, play, work, talk, relax, etc. In a single swipe without releasing your finger move to the desire category and then select the app you want to launch. If you have issues with this, the areas for activating the launcher can be configured in the "calibrated tab" above.
Since then, every new app you download from the market will be categorized in one of those categories. You can override the automatic categorisation by long-pressing an app icon in the ReLaunch launcher and moving the icon to your preferred category. The more you use this launcher, the more it will learn from your preferences: it will automatically sort your apps by most used for a faster access.
You can also change the color of the launcher and some other preferences from settings: start it on boot, enable manual categorising, etc. The main catches are that users cannot add new categories, not even change its position on the launcher sidebar.
Besides these flaws, this is an original launcher that didn't come to compete with the other thousands launchers, but coexist with them, enhancing this way user experience. Highly recommendable.
ReLaunch does not replace your existing home launcher but merely complements it. Works in harmony with home launchers such as ADW Launcher, LauncherPro and Go Launcher EX etc.

Very good app but seems like it has been abandoned by the developer. No updates in a over a year.
This is a fantastic app, but it spends more time crashed than it does running. If they can sort out that issue, I'll change to a 5 star review.
Does not work at all. Ive loved this app forever but now it doesnt work
It works like a charm when it decides to run smoothly but then it exits or ends without any notification.
It wont even let me install it stupid app
