The main purpose of using Hi-Launcher is to greatly accelerate and simplify your work with the Windows Mobile device.

This has been achieved in two ways:

  • Enhanced Start Menu
    Design the Menu yourself by filling it with commands that you use most often!

  • Instant task switching
    Switch between running programs with a single button or screen gesture!
