What's new in Home Button Launcher

Bugfix: do not show protected shortcuts in the "create shortcut" list

About Home Button Launcher

Your personalized Home Button App Launcher
★ On devices with Android 6 or newer the app opens through «Home Button Long Click», as an alternative to Google Now. You need to configure your "Assist" app manually, see here:
dynamicgandroidapps.svn.cloudforge.com/main/sites/m6/marshmallow.html
★ On Android 4.x and Android 5.x the app is opened through «Home Button Swipe Up», as shown in the linked video. Note this only works properly on devices with three software buttons, e.g. Nexus phones. Samsung phones are poorly or not at all supported.
★ This app is ad-free and open source

→ Test this app if you're looking for a simple app launcher alternative to «Wave Launcher», «SwipePad», «Smart Taskbar» or «Sidebar», or if you want to replace the default «Google Now» home button binding
→ Also check out Home Button Launcher Tools, this integrates nicely into Home Button Launcher
