FastKey Launcher Gives Your Phone An Always On Keyboard

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017 by | Filed Under: Android, App Reviews, Smartphones

If you like the idea of having a keyboard always at the read on your Android phone, you’ll want to check ou the free FastKey Launcher app.


FastKey solves the problem of searching through all of your apps to find the one you need. Just start typing the first letter of a contact or an app and the icon to launch the app is instantly displayed on your home screen.


All you have to do to open an app is tap on it. If you want to call a contact, just tap on their name.  You’ll be able to call directly from the home screen without having to open the phone app. And with a super-fast response time, it’s actually quicker than making a phone call without launcher installed.

Users seem to like it with 322 out of 418 reviews at 5 out of 5 stars in the Google Play store. and 112 reviews rating it 4 out of 5 stars.

The main complaints from users were that they would like a more customizable keyboard, the ability to edit contacts from the launcher without opening the Contacts app, and the ability to search by phone numbers.  Several users were also unhappy with the white background of the app drawer with FastKey installed.

You can download FastKey for free from the Google Play Store. It works on Android 4.1 and up. This app is ad-supported.
