Android Launcher With Gestures Support: Trigger
With an Android smartphone we can do almost anything. We can make things look beautiful as well as productive at the same time. To save time we do place apps, settings, contacts on the home screen. Wont it be a good idea if we had other ways to launch apps directly without even making a single shortcut on home screen. This keeps the home screen cleaner and better organized. So, how do we launch apps directly! Trigger is a nifty app which allows you to launch almost anything you need with hand drawn gestures. Lets take a detailed look on how Trigger makes launching anything like a breeze on your Android phone.

Working with Trigger
Trigger is very easy to use. All you need to do is open a desired event within the app and set a predefined gesture. The app creates a shortcut on home screen that opens up with space to enter your predefined gesture. So, your first task with this app will be to set the gestures. To add gestures to events you have to open Trigger from the app menu.

You can browse all the provided category, select the event and add a gesture against it. Now open Trigger app from home screen and draw the gesture. One thing to keep in mind is that the gesture need not be perfect, you can enter a ” C ” to launch clock and deviations are OK. A good practice will be to keep unique gestures to different apps. keeping close gestures will result in ambiguity while launching the event.
Trigger is not exactly free though you have a limited version. The Limited version only allows you to use 6 gestures. Well, I have put them to good use.
