Review Wave Launcher

Jay Feldman
9.3Excellent
Interesting functionality, intuitive interface, modern design
Requires calibration, lags a bit
Wave Launcher is a really cool application launcher that you can tweak and customize to your exacting standards. Why is it called Wave Launcher? Because all the apps you add to this short list, will appear on a horizontally flowing wave the moves and undulates as you slide your finger across the available apps that you've selected. Pretty nifty and cool if you ask me.
To make the magic happen, you'll have to calibrate your screen to set the exact, invisible launching point that makes the Wave kick in and make itself visible. Basically, you just touch the extreme sides and edges of your screen to activate the launches. Once it's visible, just slide your finger to the icon you want to use, then release to launch the corresponding app; easy peasy.
You can place up to 6 icons on the wave by just entering the edit wave screen. From there, just tap the position on the wave you want to tweak, and add any app you like. If 6 apps simply isn't enough for you, then you can also occupy one or more of your 6 spaces with a folder instead. Each folder can contain up to 10 apps, so you could have as many as 60 apps available on the wave by using the folder option.
Wave Launcher is truly innovative and expertly presented. The wave is fluid, fully customizable, and yes, functional and intuitive too. Yup, you can also tweak the color scheme. I really like this one a lot and will keep it on my personal short list.
