Flip Launcher isn’t a home replacement app. It is more of a homeÂ accompaniedÂ app. It won’t force you to set it as the primary launcher and it won’t interfere with anything you currently have set up. This is one of the reasons why I am liking it so much so far. I keep my home screens rather bare, but do have quite a few apps that I keep in folders together on various screens. Since I am still using the stock experience on my Samsung Galaxy S III, the folders are a bit ugly. With Flip Launcher I can clean up those numerous folders and some of the other apps that are just sitting around.
Flip launcher adds aÂ seriesÂ of 6 ‘flipÂ panels’ to the left or to the right of your device’s screen. They stayÂ staticÂ on any home page that you are on. The color scheme isn’t the best, but you change them to any color you want. You can also change the width of the panel tabs and how solid or transparent they are. Giving you a fair amount of control over its look. You can have any combination of flippers per side also. Meaning you can put three on the left and three on the right is you choose. This adds a little more flexibility to your layout.
Flip Launcher is a dream for power users who likeÂ havingÂ everything they need at their finger tips quickly and easily. What makes it just that much cooler, is that you can access these flippers while looking at maps browsing the web,Â readingÂ up on Google Plus, Twitter Facebook and even while playing most games.
You will probably want to fiddle around with the coloring, side for theÂ flippersÂ and transparency to make it look and feel exactly how you want. Once you get all your apps and shortcuts set up you could even make the flap panels invisible and still be able to pull the right panel out for quick access.
There are a few small details that could force you to uninstall this though. If you happen to have a case on your device that covers the edge of the device might make it tricky to pull the panel out. Since the action is determined by pulling either left or right from the very far edge of your screen. I have changed screens a few times when trying to pull out a panel. It was easily remedied by just increasing the pixel width of the bar. If it looks and sounds like something you might be interested in giving a try then feel free to click or scan the QR code below.
