    Action launcher makes it easy to find any app you have faster than searching through your whole app drawer just to search for that one particular app.

    Now available for free (pro version has more features) Took me a little to get used to swiping to get to my app/widget menu, that said this is a very customization and innovative launcher. You can bet I will be playing with it for a while.

    indefinite_denial: I really recommend this launcher to everyone. Cover is a really cool feature in this launcher and after using it, you probably won't go back to using folders. Just check it out.

    My (current) favorite tablet launcher. It give you some customisation options for your homescreen and (my favorite feature) gives you a widget page and app drawer available from any app with a simple edge gesture. It's a little pricey but worth it if you're looking for a neat and functional launcher that offers more than just pretty themes.
