Sideload Channel Launcher 3 (SLC3) is a new Launcher, which was created on the basis of the SLC2 Launcher. In it the author has kept the basis of the previous version and added a number of completely new features.

Of the innovations of SCL 3 – is the ability to create tiles with application icons, icon packs (there are built-in and third-party support), as well as images. It is also possible to create multiple user profiles using the new SQL database for fast switching.

The app so far only has an English interface, and also requires an android version of at least 8.0 Oreo installed on the device. No ads.

The Sideload Channel Launcher 3 app allows you to set up multiple profiles/mockups and then switch between them. It is also possible to create tiles from multiple sources and add website bookmarks to each tile.

There are also built-in icon packs. And from the standard Android TV – Leanback Launcher/Android Home, you can transfer the created channels to the Android TV home screen.

This app uses Accessibility services. Our app offers the use of BIND_ACCESSIBILITY_SERVICE which can monitor your key presses (KeyEvent) and can open the recent app menu (performGlobalAction) if you enable the service.

Enabling the accessibility service gives us the ability to detect button presses so that you can configure an easier/quicker way to open SLC3. Choosing your own button means that you can pick a more suitable/accessible button to launch SLC3 which may help accommodate you or another persons needs. SLC3 does not collect, store or share any of your personal information and this option has only been implemented to assist users. In certain cases we may also use the performGlobalAction Accessibility Service to open the recent app menu.
