    [COMMUNITY MIGRATION]
    Since the feedback to our decision to move the community to Reddit was clearly positive we confirm our choice.
    Starting from today, we will start suggesting our Reddit community to new users that want to join our community.

    We know Reddit is not available in Indonesia and this is a big problem for us. We will make available an alternative channel in order to provide to everyone at least one option. We will release more details in the next days.

    In the meantime, I suggest everyone joining our subreddit if you still didn't. We just published an interesting post about the impact of widgets on any launcher in general. We found something interesting and we think you should know it.

    See you on Reddit! (anyway this community will remain active until April 2)

    [COMMUNITY MIGRATION]

    After considering all the options we came to a conclusion about where we will migrate this community after the G+ shutdown.

    Here are the updated considerations about each option and the reason why we choose Reddit.

    Hereunder we mention often adoption as something positive. This because by choosing a popular platform fewer people will have to create a new account or to install a new app on their device.

    Reddit
    Pro:
    - It's simple to access.
    - It has a good adoption.
    - It has some system that mimics similar G+ features
    Cons:
    - You can't include pictures or videos in replies (just link)

    Facebook
    Pro:
    - It has the highest adoption.
    Cons:
    - Facebook is something personal, not everyone like the idea to use their personal profile to interact in a public community;
    - The FB privacy settings are complicated and hard to manage;
    - It doesn't allow the creation of channels;

    Discord, Telegram and similar
    Cons:
    - A chat is just not what we need.

    MeWe
    Pro:
    - It's privacy-friendly.
    - It's not too different from G+
    - It's an appreciable and ambitious project but...
    Cons:
    - ...it's a young project, it's too early to say if it will last.
    - ...it adoption is very low.
    - It doesn't allow the creation of channels

    Forum
    Pro:
    - It allows maximum flexibility;
    - It's independent of other platforms;
    Cons:
    - to run a forum and keep it updated is very time and cost expensive for the team;
    - Many forum software misses a mobile app;
    - It would require to create a new account, just for this community.

    The decision will be confirmed in the next 4-5 days then we will start the migration. Also, this decision won't mean other platforms won't be adopted in the future as alternative channels. We hope you will find this solution acceptable. Please share your thoughts and let us know if you agree or not our considerations.

    Thanks to +A. Raich we managed to obtain the ownership of the subreddit /r/smartlauncher. This doesn't mean that Reddit has been chosen as the new host for our community, but we now have a subreddit and we'd like to let you know. If you want, please feel free to use this new channel :)
