Are you used to an iPad or would you like to get an iPad-like experience? Then PaperPlane Smart Launch will help you get that experience right from your Windows desktop. The free app will give you a cooler experience on your desktop PC or laptop, where you will have instant access to all the files and applications you use frequently.
Using PaperPlane Smart Launch
We installed PaperPlane Smart Launch successfully although our SmartScreen filter displayed a warning message when we wanted to install it. The application scanned the programs installed on our system and listed them depending on their frequency of use when we launched it. When we tried using some apps more frequently intentionally we noticed that the sequence of listed apps changed and displayed those apps on top.
A quick way of accessing either the new or conventional desktop is to double-click on the one currently displayed. The new desktop resembles the Mac OS Launchpad.
However, we could disable that feature and arrange the application icons depending on our preference. We achieved that simply by dragging the relevant icons to the required positions. In addition to arranging individual icons, we could place files, apps, folders and other things into different groups like games and accessories.
Clicking on a category displayed its items while the other desktop icons went to the background. We launched apps or opened files and folder by simply clicking on their respective icons.
The new desktop featured a search bar on the upper side, which made it even easier to access the required items. Relevant items started appearing as soon as we started typing, and the results changed as we continued typing.
The multi-desktop feature and folder grouping option enabled us to organize our apps with relative ease. In addition to organizing apps, files and folders. paperPlane Smart Launch helped us to place the website addresses we frequently used on the desktop for quick access.
PaperPlane Smart Launch is an intuitive application that gives you a Windows desktop that resembles the Mac OS Launchpad. It offers lots of customization options that allow you to arrange your desktop exactly as you want. Some of the things you can customize include the background, icons and their layout. You will readily access the apps, files and other items you frequently use, and a search bar allows you to access them even faster. It features an automatic backup and restore feature.

Pros: at least they changed the name
Cons: a plain copy of other software, its not just a look alike its the same but with a differnt name
