Launcher Modular



  • @kalco-utouch Hi, I am deleting these images because they appear to be showing some of your personnel info in detail. That's not a good move on any public forum. Thank you for your understanding and appreciation of the work put into this app by it's developers



  • @Lakotaubp OK , thanks



  • @syper I have installed this app and when you put it by default it is installed in English.is there any way to install it in Spanish ?



  • @ricardo65 it's a bug we're trying to fix. Sorry

  • Hello!
    strange observation...
    I use launch modular by defauflt.
    when i'm opening launch modular icon, my phone (bq e5) is getting faster!

    weird ...



  • This is absolutely amazing!

    I know its not finished, but I do have a few suggestions.

    • The weather widget asks for you to configure it, which is fine, however, some people wont want to have to sign up to get an API key, if someone wants the weather, they'll have to, but if they don't care about the weather app, it just looks a bit awkward, so it'd be nice to be able to remove it, which is part of my next suggestion.

    • Customization, this launcher, makes me think of a more advanced version of the OnePlus swipe to the left launcher thing, you can move the widgets around to where ever you want, you can extend widgets, or make them smaller, you can add notes (For example the todo "scope" for lack of better term, could just be a widget on the home screen) you can even add media widgets for play and pausing media, its not necessary since you can do that in your indicator or notification menu, but some people do use widgets for this, so it'd be nice to be able to do that, so basically, the ability to have smaller versions of the "scopes" that have seperate pages" and more intractable widgets.

    • Tapping on contacts faces, it flips over and quickly gives you a call or text option, depending on scale, this could be tricky to tap the right one accurately, in my opinion, I think tapping the contact should open the app its from, if the contact is from contacts, open that, if its from telegram, open the teleports app on that user, etc, and I think that if you long hold, it should then it should bring a pop up, like the one that you get from holding down on applications, with "Name" (which when tapped would take you to contacts) then select-able options (depending on what app they're from) would be SMS/Message, Call, Video Call, then another separator for removing from favorites.

    • When you do hold down on a app, you get a pop up, which is good, but I think it'd be good to go with the same design as the one in the dock/launcher, which gives you options to unpin and the such.

    • I personally am not a fan of the bottom bit of the UI, it's always there, and the pull up menu in my PO, doesn't look great, I think what would be nice, is if the menu with the little icons for scopes like home and the such, should auto hide, and then a small swipe up would bring it up, a longer swipe up would then bring up the "manage page" and the "configure launcher" icon/option would be in the top right of that page, right next to the + button.

    • If you tap the title of a certain section such as "Favourite contacts" it would be nice if it expanded, this could be just to show all your favourite contacts on one screen, or to expand to show all of your contact, but your favourite are segregated to the top, like how the app scope used to, I think it's important from a UX standpoint that this is more of an expansion of the block then opening a new page, so for example, it could work like androids folders where you only see the first icon, you tap it, it expands outwards to show you the content of the folder.

    Not quite a suggestion, but are there plans to try and bring more apps/sources in, like old scopes did? JW because I think the gallery scope where it had your pictures at the top, then pictures from your instagram feed, then under that was fb pictures, really helps customize your phone to you, and adds something new to look at every time you opened your phone.

    This could be something that developers expand on with things like creating a reddit widget that will show you the latest few posts from your front page, or from a specific reddit sub-reddit, a homepage like this, would make it look uniquely Ubuntu Touch from a UI standpoint, but would make everyone's homescreen unique, interesting, and personal, which is something I loved about scopes.

    Sorry if I'm going on to much, and overloading you guys with to many suggestions, I'm only giving so much feedback, because I love it, and am excited for this launchers future, because it looks so amazing, and I love it, and I'm really impressed with it!

    This is some great work and you guys should be patting yourselves on the back, thank you for putting so much time and effort into it, its greatly appreciated!

    P.S

    I don't want ubuntu touch to mimic this UI/UX to much, however, it was a great launcher for Android, and you might get some inspiration for how to improve, or what features you could add to the launcher.

    (I like the idea of a different background under the weather, date clock, and the idea of having a "profile picture" for your home screen even if it has little purpose other than personalization.)

  • @PhoenixLandPirat

    First of all thank you for your message!
    In your suggestions I already see things that will be integrated because already on our "to do".

    So that I can handle all these requests you would have to make separate requests on the launcher's git:
    https://framagit.org/ubuntouch-fr-dev/launcher-modular

    more precisely on this page:
    https://framagit.org/ubuntouch-fr-dev/launcher-modular/issues

    Thank you again for this great return and I invite everyone to do the same.



  • @syper (apparently) under edge it's not longer possible to set the Launcher Modular as default Launcher.
    Will that be possible again in the future?



  • we are working on it ...



  • @ricardo65 hello launcher Modular at was updated and the fix for translations is applied.
    Good fun ...



  • what will be the future for launcher modular now that drawer replaced scopes?
    It will be possible to use launcher modular like a widget over the empty screen left by the app scopes?
    Maybe that now that we have the drawer the main page where apps can be launched should be redisigned?



  • Yep +1 for those questions, edge has been merged in the devel channel so the default launcher changed and there is nothing in the home screen anymore. It would be awesome to have launcher modular there.



  • @Fla @Josué

    We try to make sure we have the same behavior as on the STABLE channel.



  • @syper I'm not sure that's possible given that scope was deeply integrated into Unity 8.
    Best thing you can do is just opening launcher modular as a normal app and maybe pinning it next to the "Ubuntu" button.



  • @kugiigi

    It is true that it is not easy and that it may be the solution that we will put in place but we try anyway.
    Thank you for your support.



  • @syper hm, with edge now merged in devel the current behavior of stable will disappear pretty soon (with the OTA-12 release). So why worry about it? You can target the new code now as that's the one which will be shipped to everybody.



  • @Fla The future of Launcher Modular depends on the use we can make of it.



  • @syper sorry I don't get what you meant?
