Perfect Launcher Promises Perfection, but Does it Deliver?

In the world of Android, there are almost as many replacement launchers as there are actual Android users. OK fine, that’s not entirely true. However, there are certainly more than a handful to choose between.

With so many choices in replacement launchers, it’s quite difficult for any particular option to stand out. Keeping that in mind, XDA Forum Member for.digit hopes to make a splash with his latest app Perfect Launcher.

At first glance, Perfect Launcher looks much like any other. It’s similar in aesthetic to the stock Android launcher, which is a good thing. Long press on an app icon, and you’ll spot the first difference: a context menu appears with options that take you to app info or uninstall the app. Next, everything about the launcher is customizable.

From the number of icons in the tray and home screen to the transition animations and other parameters, Perfect Launcher offers more customization than almost any other launcher. Finally, it’s fully compatible with ADW themes, opening the door to even more personalization.

You’ll be hard pressed to find a more versatile launcher anywhere. So if you’re interested, head over to the application thread to get started.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
