My quest for the ultimate F/LOSS Android Launcher has ended.
I found this one, "Launch Time
". It has a category based app menu right on the home screen, which is completely customizable - create and rename categories, move apps from one category to another, and create symlinks to have apps show in multiple categories. Widgets per category. A favorites bar at the bottom. Apps can be hidden. The category menu can be hidden, too, but I left it visible since I don't consider it as being in the way.
I don't write that much about apps I found, but this one seems worth it.
It may not be the greatest eye-candy, but as far as usability goes, it's the best I've seen so far, and that includes all the proprietary ones I've tried (which were usually the pre-installed vendor defaults.)
