Super Shortcut uses Android 7.1.1’s App Shortcuts to Declutter the Homescreen

Android 7.1.1 Nougat added the ability to long press an app’s icon to reveal shortcuts for quickly launching certain activities within the app. Super Shortcut creatively employs this feature, called App Shortcuts, to clean up your homescreen by letting you store multiple app shortcuts from inside just one icon.

Made by XDA Senior Member Geeks Empire, Super Shortcut lets you either choose your favorite apps or selects your most used apps, and creates app shortcuts for accessing these apps directly onto its own icons. What’s more, Super Shortcut is also open source and available on XDA Labs!
