User reviews of Launch-X (FREE)
Many options but one big flaw, apparently, as cannot make a 1X1 widget, minimumm is 2X1. Also can get a bit complicated.

I really like this app. I set up some contacts for work and it works great. What's cool is that I can put pictures of the contacts in place of default type. I would like to but this app, but there is only one way to buy it, by registering your credit card over the phone and I do not want to open myself to card hijacking. Wish there was a Paypal way of buying this app (more secure.

This app replaced like 3 of mine. Helped me free up space and memory. I use it as quick dial. About to add another for all my fav. apps. I like how you can mix and match or just organize each widget I creat with Launch X.

This is one cool apps ...... Just 2 things missing .... option to place the widget vertically and "live scrolling" of the apps instead of clicking in the dots/arrow ..... apart from this pretty cool application ... PS :: Adding again, this apps definately needs live scrolling, after filling up with loads of apps, its not cool to click on dots to access the shortcuts ...plz plz plz bring live scrolling in the next update ..... willing to pay for that version .....PLZZZZ

way ahead of its time last uploaded 2012, but this app could do what folder organizer just did. icon packs, individual icon change, contacts and action shortcuts, different widgets and can even be used as a scrollable vertical side dock...
