[ssLauncher] The Next Features

First of all, thank you for using this launcher.
I'm now fully rewriting the next generation of ssLauncher and this project will be really hard and tough.
I hope it can be released in this year.
I'm sure that it will be a world best launcher in the customization!
The main targets are "lighter", "easier to use" and "more powerful".
Please support this project by purchasing the paid version (ssLauncher the Original).

  1. Would you consider allowing variables to be passed from Tasker into shortcut text? I know widgets like Minimalistic Text and Make Your Clock can do it, but having it directly in sslauncher would be super.

    1. Tasker is an app that provides an interface for high-level programming of the device so we can develop custom apps/tasks to automate stuff based on triggering events. Very powerful, and has allowed users like me to really customize the way my phone works. There are several apps that can integrate with Tasker, and some widgets like Minimalistic Text can read Tasker global variables and display it as dynamic text. This way, we can have Tasker work in the background to process information and have results automatically displayed in the widget.

      I thought it would be cool if sslauncher shortcuts could do something like that. Other launchers are just too way behind for this kind of functionality. But sslauncher already allows some smart dynamic info in shortcut text, so I figure displaying Tasker variable values could be an incremental extension of features. Also I'm pretty sure this will catch the attention of "power users" who will rave about this feature in reviews ;-)

    2. Wow! It sounds interesting. I will investigate about this. Thanks.

    3. As an user of both ss launcher and tasker, i am right now finding a way to do this. But sadly i meet this thread, so it means right now we don't have the function displaying a Text(which is variable of tasker) on the desktop of ss launcher

  2. Can you add a feature to change cases for the Title/Information shortcut texts? eg. ALL CAPS

    ReplyDelete
  3. why when i create a rotated shortcut, there are some hidden space arround the shortcut that can be clicked too, i mean if my shortcut was diagonal, there will be an hidden square with sized equally for width and height the diagonal outside accross the shortcut and can be clicked too, how can fix this?
    -sorry for my english-

  4. Do not have a issue.
    Just want to say THANKS for supplying us the best Android launcher!

  5. I'd really like to see a global "edit" display mode as an option, where if you enable widget resizing, rotating, etc. on one element, all the elements on the page faintly show their boundaries. The alignment lines are pretty good (and shouldn't be removed), but they don't provide a overall concept of how you've laid the elements out on a busy cover page.

  6. Hello,

    I have the paid version off sslauncher and would like to see these new functions in a futher release:

    -lock the phone by pressing the homebutton
    -more gesture-control (more gestures)

  8. Hello,

    your ssLauncher is really, really awesome.
    But I have a little feature wish:

    It would be really great when I can change the default Homescreen temporarily by using NFC tags. The background of this is, that I created a Homescreen especially for using my device in cars. It would be very nice when I hold my device at a NFC tag pinned in my car the homescreen would change to the page I created for use in car.

    It's only a wish, but I think when you implement something like that you got one more "killer" feature, you know?!

    Apart from this your App is already amazing!

    2. Or think of a page with fullscreen clock as alarm clock when lay down your device on the NFC Tag near your bed, or calendar widget page on your desk ... ans so on ;-)
      I'm really looking forward to a feature like this.
      U r really great, guy!

  9. Hi, a small request, can you add an option to add picture frames with the ability to crop the images?

    For having like a wall full of images or family photos for example.

    And take them from the SD card or wherever you store the images and not from the internal sslauncher data folder.

    Something a bit like Desktop VisualizeR:

  14. Loving the new update but I did have a suggestion which I haven't seen on any other launcher yet.

    Would it be possible to keep certain shortcuts or widgets on the screen even when switching page? For example, if I put a weather widget on the home screen and then slide to the next screen that widget does not move...it just stays there. This way its easier to make more unique layouts without the need to have multiple instances of the same widget open.

    Almost like a 'sticky' widget/shortcut feature.

    Just a thought.

  15. One of the best launcher. two tings i would like to have, first one to chane the icons in application page by applying the icon package and second one vertical scrolling option for the pages as well as each page can scroll vertically down so we have lot of option of customization.Tanks anyway.

    1. I will consider your first suggestion.
      For the second, all pages are vertically scrollable already in ssLauncher. Try to move an object below the screen in cover page.

  16. Hey man, can it be possible to disable the shortcuts animation when clicking them?

    I have a vertical scrolling page with shortcuts and I don't want them to have that "push" animation when I scroll the page.

    Another request:

    When I de-select the option "Clickable" for shortcuts I cannot scroll vertical, can this be changed?

    1. You can turn off the animation in menu > preferences > cover page > skip launch animation.

  19. Love your app! It has become my default go to home app! In my opinion themeing on ssLauncher the original is the best out there! Also updates to fix issues come really fast, and we're thankful for that!

    I'd like to put in my request though; many people use ssLauncher for creating awesome homescreens, often using vertical scrolling to their advantage. I know I do, anyway would it be possible to stop certain elements from scrolling vertically on cover pages? Could a dock type layer be possible? I imagine a part of the screen that could be enabled/disabled, that would resemble a dock from Nova Launcher for example; a lot like the page titles. This would allow users to place widgets and icons that do not scroll vertically along a page that has scrolling objects. It could be quite useful for clock widgets for example.

    Thanks!

    1. Many users want the kind of feature. I believe it will be added an item after careful consideration.

    2. You could add a 'pin' kind of feature that would enable users to stick one widget or shortcut to the screen instead of creating a separate dock. Just an idea :)

      Delete
    3. That is exactly what I am planning.

    4. Pinning definitely take our loved one ss launcher to the next level of customization, please consider this feature.

      Delete
  20. Now my review: The vertical scrolling together with the text is top notch and thus makes it my favorite launcher still BUT imo there are a couple of thing that need to improve urgently:
    1. Folder implementation by dropping an app/shortcut onto another app/shortcutDropping thus creating a customizable Folder. Being used to Jelly been and Nova to organize folders in that easy way it´s a must have and an urgently missing piece.
    2.Adding the deinstall function to the menu when clicking onto an app on the home screen instead of having "only" a delete Option.
    3. When Downloading a couple of apps from google play they are placed on my homescreen which is fine BUT they are placed ONTO each other like a pile meaning you have to work again and sort them to be able to see them at all. New positioning for each new app placed on the homescreen is needed.
    4. Nice to have would be a customization e.g. for the Top App screen not only showing a List but also the apps like in the App drawer next to each other.
    5. A custmizable Siderbar would also be nice.

    Three and four are only nice to have but 1-3 definitely needs urgent improvement (especially Point 1.)!.

    Cheers

    ReplyDelete
  21. Just remembered: To the 1-3 urgents ones i´d like to add:
    3.b) customizable swipe Gestures e.g swiping down opens up preferences (customizable), swiping up e.g. the task manager and double tapping on an emptly spot in the homescreen opening up an chosen app (e.g. Playstore or so on)...look at Nova who does this easy and perfectly.
    3.c) Deleting Apps which are on the homescreen leaves question tags shortcuts there. Each of the has to be deleted by this manually causing again work. This needs to go.

    Just adding these numbers for it together being a complete review in case I did notice/ remeber sth. else.

    ReplyDelete
  22. 3d) Rotating Text placed on the Homescreen in a real vertical Position.

    6) Customizing Labels by e.g. showing only not on the Homescreen (but on all the other screens).

    1. Thank you so much for the many suggestions. They will be make ssLauncher better.

  23. Hope you can implement some of these soon ChYK. SSlauncher is yet the best but it still needs some tweaks.

    Noticed one more (urgent) thing:
    3d)The Parcels you can create are nice BUT from the moment you try to put them on one of your screens - it´s not Handy anymore.

    Why? Because the great function of swiping all Icons out of the Parcel does not work on the screen -> meaning you can not drag them that way way out of the Parcel and fix them on the screen.
    Really sad because it looks so nice.
    Also if you doubleclick on the Parcel, it only shows you a small amount on the screen e.g. you have 30 Apps there and you want to put them on one screen. Each of them needs manually to be dragged and dropped onto the screen by also scrolling quite much through that narrow view.
    Either you implement the Function described at the top of this post or you have to add a bigger view when clicking the parcel showing all apps in it -> the view should be as big as the contents in the parcel and if it excceeds one screen, thann should be scrollable like the app drawer.

    Are you targeting one or more of this suggestions for your next release?

  25. 3e) Missing Double and Single click option for a text placed on the Homescreen e.g. clicking on the Text "Music" starting the App Music Player and double clicking it jumping to a selfmade screen named Music with more Music apps on it.

  28. Hi :)
    I recently started using this launcher and I find it amazing!
    It's just... so customisable... there's so many possibilitys with this launcher...
    However, I would like to suggest some stuff that I believe would help many users including myself.

    As for now, I believe this is the only launcher supporting vertical scroll, and that's awesome, though I think it needs some improvements...
    it's super annoying to hold a icon drag it down, click back to leave "editor mode", scroll down, hold the icon and drag it down, click back to leave "editor mode" again, scroll down, repeat.
    If you could improve it so you could simple hold an icon, drag it down and the page would scroll down slowly would make everything so much faster and much easyer :)

    Also there's something I would really love to see in this launcher that would open so many doors for customisation.
    You recently added the ability to pin stuff which is awesome, however, I would love if you could make the "pinning" more customizable.
    For example, there's some stuff I would like to pin that only show in some screen...
    Because if I pin my my music player widget for example in my Home pages, when I scroll left once I go to my second coverpage and I still see the music player as I want... but when I scroll left again to go to my applications page I still see the music player widget which I don't want, and not only I see it, it is also over all my apps icons...
    If you could make it able to pin only for certain pages... or pin to all and exclude on certain pages...
    Anyway, I love your launcher, keep up the good work :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I have the paid version of ssLauncher and overall, I'm very pleased with it. Thanks for the amazing super super customisable app! :) Here are some suggestions I think would make this app so much better (do correct me if I'm wrong about any point):

    1) Better interface for editing icons - I do like the current one, except it isn't very functional. I use an icon pack (Holo Icons) and there are some apps which I'd like to change the icon for. In the previous launcher I used(Smart Launcher), the interface is really nice and easy to change icons, but ssLauncher doesn't allow me to change an icon from the icon pack.

    2) For the labels at the top of the screen, I would like a 'wallpaper' for that too. I do know it is possible to assign backgrounds for individual labels (depending on whether it's active or not) but I would like the wallpaper to be static and not change depending on which page I'm on.

    That's it, currently. I especially love the pinning function because it is so customisable. It's like the dock but that dock can be anywhere and have anything (widgets, texts...). Thanks for the app again!

    3. About the dark icons issue, please send me a screenshot for it. And gestures will be supported in future.

  32. Pinned items are always on top of unpinned items. Please disable this so we can sort items to front/back. For example, a lot of android apps have the slide-out side menu (e.g. Google+ app).I want to do the same thing but from the bottom. But right now this is not possible because pinned items appear on top of the unpinned.

I would like to be able to bring PINNED widgets to the back so I can place UNPINNED objects to the front of it and as a swipe/scroll, the UNPINNED objects will move accordingly while the PINNED object stays as is.

  41. Hello! ssLauncher is great, no other launcher provides such flexibility in creating "your own" device.
    I love it.

    Recently, I have an idea to build an Android tablet in my car as an enterntainment/navigation system. Right now I am through some experiments of controlling a tablet only with bluetooth keyboard (launching applications with keyboard shortcuts, Alt-Tabbing them and other stuff). The goal is being able to use basic functions only with easy-to reach controls, not a touchscreen.

    ssLauncher is great in this case, thanks to its flexible widgets placement and pinned widgets. There is no "head unit" software for Android like Centrafuse, for example.

    The only thing I am missing is a possibility to assign keyboard shortcut to swiping pages left/right and no indication of selected app/parcel in app page when navigating with keyboard. Is it possible to implement?

  42. Thank you for your work, your launchers are awesome!

    I used both your launchers (sslauncher the original and squarehome, paid version) but since I flashed a CM10.2 rom (resurrection remix) Gmail counter stopped working. It always shows "0" both in sslauncher the original and squarehome.
    I tried unistalling and reinstalling the launchers and google play, but no success. This problem is only for Gmail, calls and sms counters work fine.
    In Nova launcher counter works correctly, and in Apex too.

    Can you give me a solution to make Gmail counter work as before?
    Thank you again.

    Replies
    1. The gmail counter was implemented by the official API of Gmail app. However, the issue has been reported by some users recently after updating Gmail app. Also I got the same issue a few days ago when changing to cm10. I installed ssLauncher first then Gmail app. I analyzed the logs and found the request to read-permission for the inbox was denied. I don't know why... Maybe, it comes from Gmail app. Anyway, this problem was removed just by reinstalling ssLauncher.
      The one solution I found is to install/update the launcher after installing Gmail app. If you find another solution, please let me know.

      Delete
    2. I uninstalled the launcher too, but after a new install nothing changed.
      I tried fixing permissions from recovery, but no success.
      So what to do? Maybe you can resolve this bug analyzing the official Gmail's API and updating your apps.
      I'm waiting for it, I need this feature.

      Thank you...

    But at last i found the great ssLauncher which has the capability to change anyone to became a good theme designer. In ssLauncher i can build everything from the ground up. Tons and tons of features. Really hats off to guys who gave amazing product.

    Here my fewer suggestions that i want to implement in ssLauncher. I hope you will surely consider my suggestion,

    1. I want the sliding app drawer (like in action launcher) which is should slide from left or from right in all pages of home screen. And the sliding app drawer will be customized like change app drawer bg, icon set, adding fav apps, scrolling through apps.

    2. When vertically scrolling the home pages, a smooth scroll effect should be nice.

    3. When opening a shortcut for the widget, the popup animation should be laggy. Make it smooth. I want to keep less widgets count in my phone. So i don't want to use the popup widget.

  50. Hi Developer of the Greatest Android Launcher Ever. I just want to give some humble suggestions and I hope you will read this :)

    1. So first thing. I noticed that there is no APK compiler in saving themes. (I really dont know if that is even possible for a launcher but I admired the Zooper's function that enabled making theme apks. hehe :)

    2. The vertical scrolling on cover pages are simply awesome. But the "stretch" (the colored thing when you pull the end on pages) is too long. May I suggest that the stretch-ability in vertical scrolls could be shortened (or maybe like the wp8 scroll which just stopped with no stretch) and color that goes along with it, disabled. I really hope you understand my grammar.

    3. The animation when you press a shortcut is cool :) So I thought that maybe you can add options on what kind of animation will appear in pressing shortcuts. (Just like the fly and snap animations of Windows tiles, maybe)

    4. Animations!! (again) whenever an app is opened. (just like in Nova. I really loved the slide animation there)

    5. A cover page that can be halfway scrolled. new weird idea :)

    6. The color when I click on an app maybe changed. Please? hehe


    As you might have noticed, I am a die-hard fan of the windows design interface. Thats why Im suggesting such. I hope you implement, if not all, some of my suggestions if they dont contribute to performance issues.

    Thanks !!!

    1. Thank you for the suggestions. I will consider them. For the second issue, a screenshot will be very helpful for me to understand it.

      Delete
    2. oh. Im really sorry because I have no screenshot to provide. But the one thing I was talking about was the "colored thing" when you pull the last page of any app in android. for example: Im in a gallery app. Then the last photo is displayed. I swipe to the right even though I know that it is the last photo. A color BLUE thingy will be stretched instead, indicating that there is no more photo to display in that album. It does not appear only on that, it is everywhere in Android. I hope you remove it on your launcher :)

  53. Is it possible to have a dynamic notification count (also missed calls, missed SMSs) to disappear when the count is zero? It's kind of ugly to see my shortcut with a 0 near it.

    1. Already possible.
      1. turn off 'show text always' in menu > preferences > cover page.
      2. lock the layouts.

  54. Hello once again ChYK and friends.

    Remember, silence calls the storm. :D
    Wish to see dynamic images and top secret future asap ;)

    And icon animations between screen transitions would be good. Shaking, rocking like icon efects bring dynamism to SS launcher, would be awasome imo.

  55. First of all I want to thank you for your ssLauncher.
    It's the best launcher I've ever seeing.

    But I have a little request.
    It would be great to add visualization settings for the alarm clock. That's how I see it:

    New Shortcut
    - Type
    -- Launcher Action
    - Target
    -- Next alarm time
    - Style
    -- Icon + Title
    - Icon
    -- Set two icons (if alarm is set and no alarms are set)
    - Title
    -- Text
    --- Next alarm time (checkbox)

    When alarm is set, we can see icon and next alarm time. When there's no alarms, we can see second icon only. Or just hide both icon and next alarm time (if it's hard to make two icons). And in both cases shortcut should lead to system alarm clock.

    So, is it possible to add new Launcher Action - Next alarm time and new Text/Format - Next alarm time? Is it possible to hide icon (better to show second icon) and text if alarm clock is not set?

    Hope you can make it.
    Because I really can't find any simple widget for alarm clock.

    And thank you for your app again.

  56. Hi Chyk,

    Could/Would it be possible to make shortcuts availible in "app group" pages?
    That way I can combinate links to everything and make pages like:
    WORK: contacts, email folders, apps.
    NAVIGATION: websites, software, contacts with adresses
    and so on!

    Thanks for this awesome launcher!

    Best Regards,

    Christiaan (from the Netherlands)

  57. Looking forward to multi-layered pinned objects!! :)

    Can putting unpinned objects IN FRONT of pinned objects be possible?
    That's a very powerful function if implemented :)

    The assigning of a pinned object to a certain Cover Page, and not to all Cover pages.. Can it be possible?

    Thanks. SSlauncher.. Unquestionably the BEST!!

  58. Hi Chyk.
    Can you add some "widget crop" options? I mean cropping widget while resizing it. Now it's not possible to set size less then 29px. I guess it's to much. It should be at least 10px.
    And it would be great to add something like "crop from top" (bottom, left, right). To cut out only top/bottom/left/right part of widget. Or make aligning of widget. Then it would be possible to set needed size and move widget to see only one of the corners. Now we always see center, and it's inconvenient some times.

    Multi-layered pinboards is great thing to do. Hope it will be possible to assign certain pinboard (layer) to certain page. And pinboard should appear/disappear with assigned page with no delay (like it happens now).

    And waiting for a "- next alarm time and status".

    Best launcher. Thank you.

  61. I would suggest if you can add per page gesture option something that if i scroll left i can choose what exact page i want not the type of page, sound on key tap and gestures that is also per page if possible.could also be much greater if user can customize the pin objects per page and not by type of pages something like if I can hide the pinned items per page and not on the page type. I do hope you get what I mean.... most

  62. I am 'the original' user for more than 2 years. Occasionally I go use other launchers, but keep coming back to this one. Nothing beats this level of customization.

    Quick question: what happened to align to grid feature, it was available in early versions?

    Also if I could request a feature :-) I would love if App group page could have an option to be aligned vertically from bottom. The reason is I have large screen and it is easier to reach the icons that way when using one hand. Thanks for the best launcher around :-)

    1. The grid layout is also under my consideration for the next generation of ssLauncher. Thanks.
