Stardock Enhances Win8 with Launch8
PLYMOUTH, MI – Oct. 30, 2013 – Leading developer of Windows 8 customization software Stardock unveiled Launch8 today: a first-of-its-kind Windows 8 Start screen dock. Now available in public beta, Launch8 enables Windows 8 users to quickly launch their favorite apps from a stationary dock on the Start screen.
“Users with many tiles pinned to the Start screen often find them are swiping left or right to get to apps they frequently use.” said Robert McElroy, brand manager at Stardock. “Launch8 eliminates frequent Start screen repositioning and enables quick access to essential apps from a front-and-center dock. Launch8 features intuitive drag-and-drop configuration along with the rich customization options that customers expect from a Stardock product.”
“The Start screen is an integral part of Microsoft’s plan for Windows 8, and we are just beginning to focus development on the ideas we have for it,” said Brad Wardell, CEO at Stardock. “Stardock’s 20 years of expertise in improving the Windows user experience uniquely qualifies us to create high-quality solutions like Launch8 that offer the customization options our customers want.”
Scheduled for final release on November 6th, Launch8 may be purchased standalone or as part of Stardock’s Object Desktop suite. Launch8 supports Windows 8 / 8.1 and is available for download now at: http://www.stardock.com/
