Review Launcher Planet

Brandon Girod
Better designed than its competitors, interesting card notification ui, good themes
Lots of stuttering, needs more optimization
Launcher Planet for Android is your typical themed launcher. It has a bunch of the same features just about any other themer has; but also brings a few more to the table. It has several themes you can download from the Play Store. You can set up exclusive widgets, and get notifications from its “card” interface.
The card notifications are probably the most unique idea the app has. If you swipe left a few times from your main homescreen, you’ll find 4 default cards, but you can download more from the Play Store. The default cards are SMS, Facebook, a fortune card, and one that pulls up information about the launcher. Unfortunately, the last two cards are all in Korean, so unless you speak Korean, you won’t be getting much use from them.
I do have to admit, the default theme for the launcher is actually pretty modern looking. A lot of the themes can be a bit cheesy or over the top, but the default one is simple and well designed. It also has some really cool clock and calendar widgets. I wouldn’t mind being able to download the calendar app separate from the app because it looks that good.
On the flip side, I found that the launcher was a bit less responsive than I would have liked. Pulling up apps always took about a second or two to pull up, and there always seemed to be stuttering while navigating the homescreen.
Launcher Planet is better than some of the other themer launchers I’ve tried out recently. The themes are nice, and I really liked the card interface. It’s unique, and a really good idea to boot. Unfortunately, the app suffers from some optimization issues that make it unpleasant to use.
