    Current Version:
    Requires Android: 1.6 and up
    Category: Productivity
    v7.8.3 update:
    - Fix a particular widget update problem
    - Prevent faulty widgets to crash the launcher
    - Activate debug hooks in order to catch a few bugs (the package is slightly bigger than usual, but same performances and RAM usage). Will be disabled again on the next release.
    - Fix a startup bug due to a subtle API change

    Lightning Launcher is a fast, light and extremely customizable launcher (also known as “home screen replacement”, or “shell”).

    Lightning is the launcher of choice for people who wants a butter smooth, light on memory and tailor-made home screen replacement.
    Unlike most traditional launchers, Lightning lets you place items everywhere on the desktop, not only to the left or right sides, but also on pages above and below. Think at the desktop as an unlimited canvas extending in both horizontal and vertical directions instead of a strip, and you will get the idea.
    This mean: as many pages as you need, more space for your apps, and faster navigation.
    Lightning has some interesting features, such as being able to put widgets in folders (and even other folders for hierarchical navigation), or letting you freely move, scale and rotate any items (note: please switch to “free mode” first to enable rotate/scale).
    Oh, and did I mentioned that LL was light on memory, leaving more RAM for your apps ?
    With its wide set of options and switches, LL is one of the most customizable launcher, albeit perhaps not the easiest to configure yet ! Agreed, as most powerful tools, LL has a learning curve. But isn’t that a small price to pay to get the most exciting and unique home screen [​IMG]
