FTL LauncherFTL Launcher : The Faster Than Light Launcher, Lite Edition

FTL Launcher : Make no mistake, this is the fastest launcher you’ll ever run. Small, light, configurable. The Gingerbread launcher as it should have been. No useless stuff, no compromises. Performance and usability are the driving forces here.
On version 3.0, most of the limitations on the Lite versions 2.x.x were removed. 3.0 Lite users have almost the full 2.x.x Pro specifications. 3.0 Pro users have a all new game to play now: The Pro version can use existing ADW, GoLauncher and LauncherPro Icon and Dock themes, giving FTL and unprecedented array of possible theming. You can even mix Dock and Icon themes from different launchers. Google Play is yours for the take.

This Lite version still has some of the configurable options pre-loaded that cannot be changed. A lot more stuff is configurable on the full version, check the Pro Version Extras feature list below. Performance or user experience are in no way impaired on the Lite version.

Important: FTL supports all resolutions and ICS, but only 800×480, 854×480, 960×540 and 480×320 devices have 3D drawer enabled! Also ICS has no 3D drawer because it does not contain the “old” opengl interface. But as it is natively accelerated anyway, 2D drawer should be very fast.

Lite Version Features:

– Tweaked for extreme speed and smoothness
– Fully accelerated 3D Waterfall app drawer
– Option to use “normal” 2D app drawer
– Choice between 3 and 5 icon Dock
– Configurable Support for launcher auto-rotation
– Configurable Infinite looping of homescreens
– Configurable support for scrollable widgets
– Configurable number of homescreens: from 1 to 9
– Configurable bounce effect on homescreen transitions
– Configurable wallpaper scrolling
– Configurable transition speed of homescreens
– Configurable default homescreen
– Configurable “swipe up” to one of the following:
*show homescreen previews
*open app drawer
*hide status bar
*show and hide status bar
*open and close dock bar
– Configurable Homescreen grid: From 4 to 6 rows
Pro Version Extras:

– Theming support: The Pro version can use existing ADW, GoLauncher and LauncherPro Icon and Dock themes, giving FTL and unprecedented array of possible theming.
– Configurable support for resizeable widgets: only when adding them to the homescreen, you cannot edit them later.
– Configurable Homescreen grid: From 4 to 6 rows, and 4 to 6 columns
– Configurable Dock icons size
– Configurable “swipe down” to pull notification bar
– Includes anim speed: precise control over core Android windows/transition animation speed
Basic Instructions:

– On first boot, homescreens will be empty. Long-press anywhere and start adding stuff!
– You can add/change the shortcuts on the dock bar: Long-press the place you want, and wait for the a popup to show, allowing you to choose what activity you want there.
– You can uninstall apps directly from the homescreen: long press the shortcut (even in the app drawer), drag it to the trash can that appears where the dock was. If you drop it immediately FTL will only remove the shortcut, but if you wait a bit before droping, FTL will offer to uninstall the app.

Try it, you won’t regret it!

FTL Launcher user reviews :

after setting up the f.t.l.launcher doesn’t start at all, just black screen for several minutes (i was very patient) interrupted occassionally by forceclose-wait-report monit. so tired of all those crappy apps from google play which are not properly checked, sometimes working and sometimes not working but mostly the second option. uninstall, happy that i didn’t try paid version

Nice launcher .. is fast but wish it were smooth and not so rough, would be 5 stars if you fix.

I’ve tried a lot of launchers and this is by far the fastest. I’ve always had problems with lagging and freezing and needing to reboot but not with FTL. It’s just brilliant. I plan to buy the paid version once I get paid. It’s just that good. Well deserves 5 stars!
