Introducing the new Smart Launcher
We're finally ready to communicate some news about how and when the next Smart Launcher major release will be distributed.
First of all, the name of the new version will be Smart Launcher 5. A SL4 project existed but while we were working on it we understood it was not good enough, so we decided to postpone the release to the next year to create something truly better. We will probably tell you more in a different post.
What's new in SL5
The list of changes is incredibly long, and we're especially proud to announce we kept all the features available in SL3. SL5 is simply much better than SL3. However we don't want to ruin the surprise so we will communicate the full changelog when SL5 will be available.
How will the upgrade be distributed?
The standard version of SL3 will be automatically upgraded via Play Store. SL3 Pro as app aside will remain available on Play Store and who purchased it will be able to continue using it or to download SL5 with unlocked Pro features from Play Store.
Will it be a free update?
Yes! You will receive the update to SL5 and you will be able to enjoy the new experience while maintaining the features you paid for. However we decided to include an optional in-app purchase to unlock some new features introduced with SL5.
When will SL5 be available?
We expect to expand the rollout to beta tester in about 10 days. According to our plans SL5 will be available to everyone in March.

As you probably noticed, some links about a leaked version of Smart Launcher alpha appeared online.
We accepted only few people per time as alpha testers to avoid this kind of accident, obviously we weren't careful enough and one of them decided to betray our trust. We're found a reference to the leaker and we're taking necessary actions.
In the meantime, we won't stop the alpha test. We will continue accepting new people but we will be even more selective.
I suggest to not install any APK found online, since they could be modified to contain virus and malicious code.
Also, I'd like to share here the leaked info. We prefer you to receive the news from us instead than from someone interested in gaining some online visibility.

The early alpha of the new Smart Launcher has code name "Punta rossa" and the team is working on it from more than one year. We rebuilded or heavily changed almost any part of the "old" Smart Launcher making it more suitable for modern and future smartphones.
Punta rossa will bring some exciting features requested by the community since ages! Here is just little taste of what we're talking about:
- Smooth scroll to drawer and widget panel;
- Manual sorting mode for the drawer;
- Adaptive icons (compatible with any Android version)
- Bottom categories bar
- No categories mode
- Bottom search bar
