Linpus brings launcher application to Android delivering more options to launch applications within one tap

Linpus Launcher as well as its full range of products will be on display at its booth at MWC


Taipei, Feb 21st – At MWC, Linpus, a leader in the field of open source software in the consumer space, will be officially releasing their Andorid launcher application – as well as demonstrating their Windows 8 touch gestures application and a host of other mobile applications. Linpus, one of the most successful open source vendors in the notebook and consumer device market, has recently added Android and Windows 8 applications to its product range with a Keyboard Series, a weather application, Linpus Gestures2Launch and now their Linpus Launcher, among others. 


Linpus' focus with Linpus Launcher was to provide more ways to shortcut apps and to access those shortcuts quickly within one or taps.  Linpus has achieved this objective through their Quick Launch Panel, an additional tab where apps and actions can easily be added. Quick Launch Panel solves the problem of additional tapping and clutter through its innovative method of being launched: just shake or swipe up from the outside of your screen area. 


“As a company we have always been laser focused on UX design,” said Rita Jing, vice-president of sales. “Since starting to develop apps for Android we felt we could put that experience to good use with a launcher application. Linpus Launcher is not only faster but offers some unique customization options.”


In addition to the Quick Launch Panel, Linpus Launcher has a huge number of other features focused around making it easy to personalize your device for the fun and specific functionality that suits you best. For example: it is possible to add different wallpapers to your home screen and application screens so you can make the most of your children's or pet's photos; configure application pages; choose between a number of transition effects, add widgets to the dock and easily add different Linpus and 3rd party themes.  


Linpus Launcher is available on Google Play.


Specifically, the other applications on display from Linpus' product portfolio are as follows:


Linpus Gesture2Launch – Simply write a gesture on the screen to makes launching applications and completing actions like restarting your computer faster and easier on Windows 8.

Linpus Keyboard – A comprehensive feature set delivers ease of use and speed through less key strokes and multiple methods of error correction and editing. In addition it has the most complete set of input methods for traditional and simplified Chinese.

Linpus 3D Wallpaper – This app sets the bar higher combining true 3D with the functionality of the gyroscope and accelerometer to create uniquely vivid and interactive wallpapers.

Linpus Battery Optimizer - Makes the most of your battery's power by giving you the most ways to view, adjust and control power consumption per application and function.
