Aspire (with MUSE)


Aspire is a simple Home Replacement/Application Launcher for Android. It is the first commercial application utilizing the MUSE Framework and (so far) the only launcher to boast as much as a 700% documented increase to passive battery life. One tester reported as much as two weeks.

Before you install, please visit our Welcome and FAQs pages on Facebook at: http://www.facebook.com/AspireLauncher. This will explain features, information and known issues.

CURRENT FEATURES
-- Umm, its an Application Launcher...
-- Auto-senses Screen quality to determine valid Grid space (4 x 4 on most 2.1 devices, 6+ x 6+ on later versions of Android)
-- Resizable Widget support
-- Limited One-Touch Scrolling (ListViews are a pain)
-- Multiple Screens
-- Fling Up anywhere on the Home Screen for a Toolbar to place any number of Icons
-- Fling Down anywhere on the Home Screen to display notifications.
-- Customizable Home buttons (place any Icon on a button to replace it)

Enhanced By:
-> Agent - Allows the user to contact us directly via phone or email. Also connects to the Facebook page.
-> Airbrush - Gains its background and foreground colors from the currently active Style.

FEATURES MOVING FORWARD:
-- Full integration with the MUSE Framework
-- Full One-Touch Scrolling on all of our screens.
-- Resizable Icons
-- Multiple Screen Support (up to 9 screens)
-- Configurable Orientation Switching
-- Resizable Home Bar (1 to 7 buttons)

ABOUT BATTERY USAGE
Aspire improves passive battery life... by a lot. What does this mean? For many users, the phone remains idle most of the time. With other launchers, this still results in a ton of useless processing. Aspire tweaks that processing to almost nil. In essence, you are only using your battery if you are using your phone. On average, a user can expect at least a full 24 hours with Bluetooth, Wi-fi and full brightness display. Active use will still drain the battery, particularly phone calls and internet via 3g/4g.

KNOWN ISSUES:
-- See our FAQs Page for Known Issues at http://www.facebook.com/AspireLauncher

ADDITIONAL INFO
Aspire is currently feature light as the demand for this product required an early release (when, in fact, we were behind schedule :P ) We have already begun and will continue to add the features that make this paid app worthwhile. Over the next month, we will provide weekly updates until all features are complete.

IMPORTANT CREDITS
Aspire was inspired by ADW Launcher. After we tried to encourage the author to be involved, but failed, we turned it into a clone. Some of it may look familiar to ADW users, but everything was redeveloped entirely. This rework is not an insult to ADW's developer but should be viewed as a different way to do all of the same things.

Samsung Nexus St The 4.1.2 OS is a problem because it won't relinquish home screen authentication, yet my old 2.2.2 Hobbit mobile allowed me to set it permanently. Any ideas on it? Live wallpapers act up too. A great screen otherwise on this Google junker!

Nice!! Wow, so yeah I guess it does work. I was losing 10% battery (using battery hack) before installing Aspire. Now I lose 2%. This is of course with screen off but there has been some improvement in heavy usage battery drain as well. My phone does charge faster too! Moto ATRIX 2
