Hi everybody, a new version of ARM Launcher has been released (0.99.16). This release contains the following changes:
  • Allow custom icons in the main dock (a lot of requests for this).
  • Fixes in the desktop part that may cause widgets to overlap.
  • Fix that an item drop preview will not be shown for the top left corner.
  • Google play compatibility with devices like nexus 7 (thanks to a dear college for letting me borrow his nexus 7).
  • Improved start-up time.
  • Support for quick restart after being killed by android when more resources are needed.
Due to the change of the way the dock works, long pressing the icons it contains now starts a drag. To access the quick popup, long press the drawer icon.

Version 0.99.14 released! This version adds an application sidebar to ARM Launcher. The sidebar can be triggered by swiping to the right from the hotspot area, located at about 1/4 from the top on the left side of the screen. The hotspot area can be configured from the options menu.
This sidebar is enabled by default and can be disabled from the options menu. The sidebar has three favorites slots, displays the 5 most recent applications and all applications. On top a search bar allows you to immediately search the applications installed on your device. As always, if you have any feedback or suggestions, let me know!
