Speed Launcher is a lockscreen designed as a retro-phone dial (circle)
In spite of its name, this is not another Launcher, but a lockscreen. A lockscreen that looks like a circle dialpal as the old phones used to be. In each one of this circle, you can add a contact for a fast call or messages. If you hold the contact and swipe right, you will call him/her. If you do it to the left, message inbox will be launched. You can add up to 9 contacts. There's no need to unlock the device for calling or sending a message, just swipe it on the right way.
What's more, it brings some extra options that will be only available in the Pro version which only costs 0.50€. That's it, shortcuts to phonebook, call log, app drawer and settings.
We've noticed two main catches. First off, the design, it's a bit poor, it could be certainly improved. Second, when you try to add a new contact, instead of unlocking the device it self, Speed Launcher disappears, not your default lockscreen, which you will have to unlock to start adding contacts. What's there's no way to disable the app if you don't uninstall the app. Finally, there aren't options for customizing as layouts, skins, icons style, etc.
Speed Launcher is a great concept of lockscreen. However, it needs to be enhanced to compete with the amount of great launcher that are already on the market. We encourage PetalApps, its developer, to make it.

Four stars. I'd give 5 but the call log never worked
I think this is a very very useful and great app for all other people who has using the cell without unlocking. I like very much.
It's very useful when you have a lot of applications installed.
Nice, smooth, and easy to use
Overall a nice app but some features don't work even on the pro version.
