This application allows you to create shortcuts on local information and folders, purposes, settings, contacts, messages and even you'll have the ability to customise shortcuts from different apps. You can present your individual shortcut title and use many alternative options for customizing the shortcut icon: use icon of the associated application, crop picture exported from external gallery, import icons from file, use icon from exterior theme. The app also helps native widgets - you can create a widget as an alternative of a shortcut. Later the widget icon, title and appearance could be changed. In addition you'll find a way to manage shortcuts within the Collections database utilizing completely different methods like hierarchy or tags. Later you should use Collections dialogs to get fast access to the organized shortcuts.


Some options require Pro mode (an in-app purchase) but Trial mode does not block them at first and also you're given time to check them. Trial is completely IDENTICAL to Pro so do not buy Pro should you assume that one thing shall be changed.


On Android Oreo (8.0) there's a new approach to add shortcuts on the principle screen and the Launcher automatically provides a small Shortcut Creator icon to the right backside nook of any shortcut icon. I've discovered just one workaround for this - add from widgets. Please check the associated how-to video on the primary page of the app.
