Ruwaine, Feb 5, 2019 : Hello all, I would like to share my idea of a launcher that will be based on gestures to navigate and launch apps directly from the homescreen (thus named "Gesture Launcher"). Below and the attached PDFs further explain my idea regarding its implementation and its working concept, with its stated benefits. Who are the users? Everyone can use it an it will be highly customizable according to each user's liking. What is the proposed function? The proposed function is to allow the user to seamlessly and quickly launch apps directly from the homescreen using gestures (gestures which would even become second nature to users through muscle memory) What is the user value? The value it would bring to users are: - Less cluttered Homescreen - Faster access to apps directly from the homescreen, and with more use; users may learn the gestures through muscle memory. - gives users a sense of high levels customizability and flexibility. If there are existing comparable functions in the smartphone industry, how is your proposed feature superior? 1. There are similair apps in the play store, but not launchers. 2. In its working principle, those current competitor apps first require it to be open. 3. Thirdly, the predefined gestures need to be drawn within the app (draw gestures of the letter "Z" or "O",etc). The weakness of such competitor apps is that the app itself need to be open to work. Secondly the number of gestures are limited, and must be pre-assigned to each app and the user must memorize which gesture is assigned to the selected app. This Gesture Launcher idea I proposed is superior because: - launching of apps can be done straight from the homescreen - unlike those competitor apps, these gestures do not need to be limitied to certain gesture types, and pre-assigned to each apps, and gestures memorized for each app. In Gesture Launcher, gestures will follow the logic and visual cues of a subfolder system.
