Lightning Launcher eXtreme

Lightning Launcher eXtreme


Lightning is a fast, light and extremely customizable home screen replacement for Android.

And it can also be used as the most flexible lock screen replacement !

Lightning Launcher eXtreme is the launcher of choice for people who wants a butter smooth, light on memory and tailor-made home screen replacement.
This is the ultimate bundle, no compromise, simply the most powerful and configurable launcher for Android. Lightning is the only launcher with scripting support, allowing an incredible flexibility with the use of JavaScript.

Unlike most traditional launchers, Lightning lets you place items everywhere on the desktop, not only to the left or right sides, but also on pages above and below. Think at the desktop as an unlimited canvas extending in both horizontal and vertical directions instead of a strip, and you will get the idea.

This mean: as many pages as you need, more space for your apps, and faster navigation.

Lightning is loaded with powerful features, such as being able to put widgets in folders (and even other folders for hierarchical navigation), or letting you freely move, scale and rotate any items (note: detach the item from the grid to enable rotate/scale). Any object can be pinned (docked) anywhere. Much more has to be discovered in the app (panels, styles, stop points for scrolling or panels to name a few).

* Enhanced app drawer, with the ability to create folders, hide apps, change the style in all ways, view running apps, most frequently used, recently installed, direct shortcuts to kill or uninstall apps... and more !
* Included lock screen management: select one of your Lightning desktop to be used as the lock screen.
* Support for configuring up to 100 distinct desktops, with customizable label and icon, for the purpose of managing multiple independent setups (personal, professional, for kids, etc.)
* Built-in configurable messaging notifications (highly customizable badge for sms, missed calls, unread gmails)
* Full scripting support, thanks to the easy to use and well known JavaScript language
* App killer available from everywhere: long tap on an icon, select kill, et voilà.
* Built-in per desktop wallpaper, available in the app drawer too.

Things to be aware of (please read this notice):
- With its wide set of options and switches, Lightning is the most customizable launcher, albeit perhaps not the easiest to configure yet ! Agreed, as most powerful tools, Lightning has a learning curve. But isn't that a small price to pay to get the most exciting and unique home screen ;-) By default LL will start in normal mode although an expert option found in the general section will show even more settings.

- Problem setting LLX the default launcher ? Please install this free app : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=name.kunes.android.launcher.loader

Wallpaper in landscape mode is cut I want to use my phone in landscape mode however using this launcher my wallpaper is cut in landscape mode. I found another bug. When i double tap to zoom out and double tap again to get it back, some icons does not stay the way they were before. This is especially replicable when switching screens from landscape to portrait and vice versa. I purchased the app for that purpose, the way you can zoom out all your screens coz its awesome. But please fix this bug. And give some settings for landscape mode.

It was working great It's still, by far, my favorite launcher. There are just a few bugs after upgrading to lollipop. Half the gesture actions I set won't work. I used to set a Swype action to dial certain contacts on my phone shortcut, but it doesn't work anymore.

Buggy but worth it I can set up a single panel launcher with touch and slide gestures so I can access all my favorite apps with a quick touch or swipe. I can put the date and time and battery remaining in plaintext without full of themselves buggy widgets. I can back up my settings and share them to myself via gmail or gdrive and restore them on another device so my muscle memory finds what I'm looking for quickly in the remembered corner or edge whether it be a small phone or a large form tablet. Every few months it corrupts the layout for some reason but hey I've got the backup I made for device to device transfer- I just restore that. Works for me.
