A New Way to Launch Custom Apps in Jelly Bean is now Available
As we’ve seen before, some developers choose to take advantage of the Google Now shortcut in Jelly Bean, and replace it with a customized menu. The implementations available on the Play Store, two to be exact, both work fine and are a great option for any Jelly Bean User.
Launch Now does not offer more, in terms of functionality, on top of what the other apps of its kind offer. In fact, it’s quite the opposite, as Launch Now can only have 7 apps in the list it provides. First let’s get a more detailed look at what it does. With Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, swiping upwards from the Home button will let you access the newly introduced feature with the OS – Google Now.
Launch Now replaces the shortcut to Google Now with a customizable list of apps. You can have as many as 7 apps in the list that you can use to quickly access your favorites. What Launch Now offers on top of the other apps that work in the same manner is speed. Launch now has been optimized so there is no delay from the moment you access it and the list appears. You can also assign just one app to be launched when using the shortcut.
Launch Now can be purchased for a very good price – on the Play Store.
