SAO Launcher

SAO Launcher


The Sword Art Online system menu, for smartphones and tablets. Pay $5 inside Options to turn off ads and unlock additional features. The total cost of Pro and all extensions is around $8.

Drag down from the top left corner of your screen and orbs will fall into place, giving you quick access to various features of your phone. Call and text friends, launch your favorite apps via shortcuts, control music, and more using the various orbs.

SAO is built to be extendable. There are many free and paid themes and extensions available in the Store. Themes update the images, sounds, and fonts used in the app creating a completely different experience. Extensions, on the other hand, are additional orbs that appear when downloading other apps. SMS, for example, is a free extension for phones.

Both themes and extensions have an API for those who want to truly customize the experience. The documentation is still in it's infancy, so don't feel afraid to email us at [email protected] for additional help or to submit an app to the Store.

FAQ:

Q: Can I help translate the app to my language?
A: Sure! We'll give you (and any friends) Pro if you help keep our translations up-to-date. You can now help out with translating using Localize (https://www.localize.im/v/dq). Email us afterwards ([email protected]) to work out who to give Pro access to.

Q: Can I help test new features or recommend ideas?
A: Of course! Join our community (https://plus.google.com/communities/106623201559847991380) and, if you're interested in being on the cutting edge, sign up for Testing. We'll do our best to address bugs promptly.

Q: How do I use themes?
A: Install the theme, then go into Options, Themes. You should see it as a choice aside Default.

Q: My extensions aren't working (or... anything isn't working).
A: Try rebooting. If it still doesn't work, feel free to send us an email ([email protected]) or report it in the community.

Q: Why can't I uninstall the app?
A: It's probably set as a Device Administrator (a legacy feature from Log Out). Go into Settings, Security, Device Administrators, and uncheck SAO Launcher.

Q: Why is log out missing?
A: Log out required Device Administrator, which made it difficult to uninstall the app.

Q: How do I get sms to pop up?
A: Install the SMS extension - it's another app, you can find it in the Store.

Q: Why is there a delay launching the app after pressing the Home button?
A: Android introduces a 5sec delay for all services after the Home button is pressed. There is no way to get around this.

Q: Why can't I click under the swipe area?
A: It's an anti-keylogging feature of Android's. There is no way to get around this.

Q: Why do I still see my old SMS notifications after installing the extension?
A: I can't touch another app's notifications. Luckily, the default SMS app lets you disable notifications in settings.

Q: Why can't I hear any sound?
A: There are different streams (System, Notification, Media). Some phones disable System, the stream usually reserved for button clicks. If you have one of those phones, you'll have to change the stream in Options.

Q: This isn't a launcher! Why claim it is?
A: It is... Sort of. It launches apps. It is not meant to replace your default launcher, though.

Cool app but... Its not worth having unless you're willing to pay to get rid of the unnecessary dumb ad and unlock some features. And if you can deal with the fact that there is no way to delete sms from its interface. For now probably. It still has tons of potential for more improvement and updates("Extensions"). And tons of more ways to keep your wallet coughing up more dough when those updates come out. But It's still definitely worth checking out for the most hardcore fans and deciding if you want to spend $4.99("$8"). And be suckered in buying every update ("Extensions") that comes out for this app.
