Application Launchers Apps and Alternatives

17 applications in this hubLast updated: Nov 12th 2018, 05:03 GMT

Typically, an application launcher is a simple piece of software which provides users with a more convenient and faster way of launching apps without having to resort to  traditional techniques. However, modern application launchers can also be surprisingly versatile utilities capable of doing so much more for your productivity.

For example, with their help, users can search the web directly from their computers' desktops, perform math calculations, create to-do lists, run custom system commands, as well as open documents, files, and even folders. From downright stripped-down app launchers to impressively-full-featured ones, some applications of this type also offer incredible customization options both regarding looks and functionality, which might make it easier for users to integrate them into their daily workflow.

Therefore, it's easy to see why some users prefer the companionship of application launchers, as their range of capabilities usually extends far beyond that of what their names imply. Having said that, one shouldn't be surprised that the the word "productivity" is so strongly associated with this kind of apps.
