5.0 out of 5 stars Very customizable! May 8, 2011
Verified Purchase
I'm not going to change the star rating, bc I still really like this app alot. But I'm annoyed that there's an update available for this app on the android market for over a month, but no update from Amazon yet. This is not the only Amazon app I've had this happen with.... if it continues, I'm not going to use Amazon anymore.

Original review:
This is a really cool app. I just downloaded it today bc it was free, but if I'd known about it before it would totally be worth the dollar. I really like how you can customize the size and location of the launch area, and how you can combine both set apps and recent apps.

5.0 out of 5 stars If only anyone would read the description... May 8, 2011
Wave launcher is not as told in the comments only accessible by swiping from the bottom to the top! it is fully customizable which makes it even the best of any competitive app! you can change the way you swipe (access it by the right left or from the bottom), even the thickness of the gesture area so that it not causes any problems with any other app (or the keyboard) and you can shorten the gesture area which is an amazing feature! I am a proud user of it! And the best thing happening is that if there is anything, any idea to make wave launcher even better you send them an e-mail which gets answered for a hundred percent! Best support for the best app the store!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! September 19, 2012
By Derek
Verified Purchase
I absolutely love this app. I use it ALL the time literally. I've added my most used apps it and the are available at the swipe of a finger. One thing to note is the location where you start the swipe. Where I had it placed before it would interfere with the keyboard, but you can configure where you want the swipe to start.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well built May 8, 2011

This app is great, but part of what makes android a great os, is how accessible everything already is. I think this is overkill, dont get me wrong...great design, very intuitive, webOS duplicate, it's just not needed in android.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely no problems June 15, 2011
By J. Pena
Verified Purchase
I've been using this app for well over a month now and I absolutely love it. It recreates the same function from the Palm pre for pulling up apps exactly the same way. I've never had the app get in the way of typing like other users have mentioned. I can't even recreate the type of problems I've read other users having. It works as advertised. Some of the negative comments are probably the result of users not tweeking the settings on the app. I've never messed with any of the settings other than setting up the apps. Great buy. Very useful. EVO.

5.0 out of 5 stars Game Changer!! November 13, 2011
Verified Purchase
Wave launcher has increased my productivity to immeasurable levels!! Being able to have access to my frequently used apps (Facebook, Pulse, Gmail, Browser, Phone, Txt, Camera, Flashlight, and Brightness Control) has been literally a paradigm shifting experience. This single app is the reason I am staying on the Android platform for the foreseeable future!! Thanks MobileMerit!!

This is one of my favorite apps for a few years. Whenever I get a new phone (not often) or upgrade my Android ROM (often) this is one of my must have apps. Such a great tool!

1.0 out of 5 stars Sure, read this review
I think this was a text input app. It failed, whatever it was. It might have improved since I first used it about 2 years ago. But it was terrible when I used it.
