Usage is extremely simple:
1. Touch the very bottom of the screen and slowly swipe your finger up towards the middle of the screen.
2. When you get towards the middle, the wave appears!
3. Without raising your finger, swipe left or right to select the desired application.
4. To launch the app, simply raise your finger from the screen.

This is one of the must have apps on my phone.

Best looking and is my most frequently used launcher/app. The app drawer plug in is extra cool---being able to go to the list of apps from any screen w/o navigating home first, is so useful. Update: emailed the dev(s) with a request and received a (quite promising) response. It is excellent that they consider their user base.

Still the Champ... Nothing has come close to replacing this. Having access to any of apps at any time from within any app with a simple swipe is brilliant. A backbone to my phone!

Have been using it for years. . . But I'm going to see what else there is. Guess developer didn't think much else could be added to it. Although, It gets the job done of having all your apps or most used apps at your disposal at any time so that's good

Useless - Waste of Money What's the purpose? Biggest ways of $1.99 of the year for me. I already have capacitive touch key for recent apps and an app drawer to access apps that aren't in the recents. WOULD BE WORTH GIVING THIS APP 5 STARS IF YOU COULD ACCESS IT FROM YOUR LOCKSCREEN. Now THAT would be more of a reason to claim that this app increases productivity, and it WOULD actually save a lot of time when accessing apps. But you can't and I doubt you ever will.

Wishing it hadn't been abandoned It's a very well made app, but there could still be growth to it and fixes. Developer hasn't said anything in over a year. LauncherPro all over again.
