Since I still receive a few emails every week asking me if Launcher is ever coming back to the App Store, I figured it would make sense to post a public update now that I finally have a pretty solid answer on it.
The short answer is: No. It doesn’t appear that Launcher or anything even close to it will be making it back to the App Store anytime soon. I wish this wasn’t the case and I believe that I have tried everything reasonable that I could do to try to get it back in some form.
For anyone interested in a more detailed answer, feel free to continue reading. I’ll try to keep it as brief as possible, but I also don’t want to skip the important and interesting parts, so it may end up a bit on the longish side. We shall see.
