The stagnation of Next Launcher 3D Shell's growth rate
After Go Launcher Team released the $16 Next Launcher 3D Shell in 2012, the number of users increased sharply in the initial period, but soon the growth is stagnated. This is because the dazzling 3D effect and stunning animations can easily cause the fatigue of the users. And the excessive 3D shell as well as a ton of complicated tools and options sometimes fiercely slow down the mobile. These features can make users feel exhausted and breathless.
Solo Launcher learns the lesson
Learning from this, in 2013, Solo Team developed a brand-new Android application launcher: Solo Launcher. It is characterized in lightweight, smooth and customizable. The original theme of Solo Launcher is in light blue. As it is said "Thin as onion skin", the user interface is fresh and straightforward, bringing users the feel of oxygen.
