    FTL Launcher Pro's review

    Published: 2012-02-14, by .

    FTL Launcher Lite is one of the lightest and fastest launcher on the market

    • Smooth performance
    • Ease of use
    • Full version is paid
    • 480x800 devices
    • Poor options

    "Faster than Flash"

    FTL Launcher will be a great discovery for those who don't want to rack their brains with customization and millions of settings and what they're looking for is a fast and light launcher. Of course, don't expect to find here lots of themes, icons, effects and all that stuff that other launchers include. This is a naked launcher able to reach the speed of light and sound.

    FTL is based on Gingerbread Launcher2 (it really looks like it, including 3D Cube app drawer). It has been tweaked for extreme speed regarding launching and scrolling app drawer, swiping screens and launching apps. Its performance is impressive. However, its preferences lack of lots of important options. It just allows you to set infinite looping of homescreens, auto-rotation, enable/disable scrollable widgets and dock background. What's more, it allows to set maximum 5 screens in the Lite version (up to 9 in the paid version).

    Precisely this is one of its catches: this launcher is basically paid ($1.99). Although the Lite version let's you trial its performance, the basic options are available only in the paid version. The other flaw is that it only supports HDPI WVGA (480x800) devices.

    Besides these catches, we recommend you to give it a go since its smoothness is actually noticeable.

    I am bummed out. I liked FTL launcher -- fast, lets you adjust the number of rows and columns on the desktop, etc. But... I began to notice little anomalies in function that I wrote off as not important or maybe an odd feature or maybe an error on my part. For instance, when downloading a new app from the Play Store the icon would never appear on the FTL desktop, and I'd have to go add it manua

    I just wish the developer would update the application more often.

    Very nice launcher which is kept very basic and simple. That is what makes this launcher so fast and stable. I only have two issues concerning the not quiet optimal usage of display space and the missing possibility to resize widgets that already have been placed on one of the homescreens. The Apex launcher allows such widget resizement, for example. Because of the quiet broad borders on the edg

    I used to love this launcher but I'm getting too many force close issues to use it now. I had it on a Motorola droid 3 for a long time and now it's even worse on a Samsung s4.
