Lose the fat, keep the muscle. Be warned, Lightning is a Launcher on steroïds.

Lightning Launcher is a speedy, lightweight and fully customizable home screen replacement for Android.

Main features:

- wide variety of layout modes: grid, single columns, horizontal, vertical, free positioning,...

- unlimited visual customization: change labels, icons, fonts, colors, alignment, sizes, and so on.

- innovative concept: your home screen is like an unlimited surface where apps and widgets can be placed anywhere, anyhow

- each item (app, shortcut, widget,...) can be individually customized, scaled, rotate, either to improve readability, or gain some precious pixels in a tight layout, or just for the fun of it.

- support for sophisticated folders, able to contains widgets and even other folders for complex organization. Each folder can be entirely customized, from the layout to the visual theme.

- support for configurable keys and gestures: bind your preferred action on your preferred key, launch a custom app upon swipe

- built from scratch and from the ground to be the most power efficient and the most RAM saving. The more memory you have for your apps, the faster they will run, and the longer your battery life will be.

- and much more inside...

Plus, Lightning Launcher is free, has no ad, does not need internet permission nor root access. There is no full/pro/prime or HD version. All the Lightning power is right here and available in a single, very small and efficient package. Still you may want to have a look at the extra apps. Purchasing one of these apps will bring you some more luxury features. This will also help with keeping this app alive... as well as its developer who is willing to make of this app the best launcher ever.

All comments, suggestions and bug reports are welcome. Comments on the app store are difficult to use, please email your question/bug to me at pierrox@pierrox.net.

Visit the facebook page http://www.facebook.com/LightningLauncher to learn what is currently in the pipe, or request for some feature, or simply ask a question.

Lightning Launcher: your home screen, your own style !

Enjoy !

Permission:
- CALL_PHONE: needed for direct call shortcuts, this permission is required in all launchers that support contact shortcuts. LL won't call anybody in your behalf.
- EXPAND_STATUS_BAR: as its name says, used for the "Show status bar" action.
- SET_WALLPAPER_HINTS: used to set the wallpaper dimension
- no other permission needed !

Is this what you are referring:

CALL_PHONE: needed for direct call shortcuts, this permission is required in all launchers that support contact shortcuts. LL won't call anybody in your behalf.


If yes then try reading it again as it say CALL_PHONE: needed for direct call shortcuts, this permission is required in all launchers that support contact shortcuts. LL won't call anybody in your behalf.

No I am referring of that what's written under fourth tab called permissions the tab after overview,user review... where is written this
SERVICES THAT COST YOU MONEY
DIRECTLY CALL PHONE NUMBERS
Allows the app to call phone numbers without your intervention. This may result in unexpected charges or calls. Note that this doesn't allow the app to call emergency numbers. Malicious apps may cost you money by making calls without your confirmation.

No it does not call automatically to any number. I have checked apex launcher and nova launcher permissions too and it seems this is the basic rules which may refer to calling a particular direct contact on on one click
