Ive tried some. None of this is new, I was using a launcher 3-4 years ago.


And MS have basically been in hiding working on Andromeda Continuum which will be the ultimate single device required.


But what about those that dont own a Samsung, have you had much success with Launchers?


I personally dont need a notebook but I do want desktop features, Win 10 continuum was the best but they let that die out for the above reasons.


I thought about an iPad Pro, but you cant even use a BT mouse with it, no thanks.


Im trying out Leena right now, but there are issues with youtube, it wont resize, it is almost perfect :-(.


If you have found a good launcher for youtube, netflix, web browser, Office (or libre office etc) let me know please.


Thanks :-)

So you're asking for a Dex-style, desktop imitation launcher as opposed to a launcher in the generic Android context of homescreen app?


If so check out Sentio Desktop.
