Quick Launch is an incredibly simple, yet powerful Android app. Now you can multi-task your device’s hardware buttons. ┬áSet an app to open when you double-tap the Home button or by long pressing the search or camera buttons. Additionally, there is another option to put a quick launch icon in the notification window for easy access.

Because of the wide variety of Android devices and custom UI’s in the market, there are conflicts which can nullify some of this app’s functionality (some hardware buttons may not execute the Quick Launch preference). Luckily, the developer is very active and responsive to bug reports and feature requests.

Pros:

  • Launch apps with hardware button shortcuts
  • Increase the speed at which you use your Android device
  • Responsive developer committed to resolving device-specific bugs



Areas for improvement:

  • Enable quick launching of other functions, e.g. calling a specific contact
  • Option to turn off notification icon even when using notification tray launcher feature



Conclusion: A simple, smart way to launch your favorite apps in less taps/time.

  1. As the developer of Quick Launch I would like to provide a limited free trial of Quick Launch to anyone who wants to try it out.

    The link below contains a fully functional version of Quick Launch that works until 2/28/2011 without any license validation… After that date, it does the normal license check with the Android Market servers to check if the app has been purchased.

    If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions please don’t hesitate to contact my by email at [email protected].

    Thanks, and enjoy this trial:
