Launcher Screenshot

Launcher provides an elegant way of grouping and launching applications. It features events notification too - missed calls and messages at the moment. It also has built in apps for contacts, sms and phonelog.

It is aimed at FSO framework based distributions, mainly SHR. SHR-Launcher and Launcher in this page do refer to the same app.
