Linpus Gesture2Launch is a powerful gesture based application designed to for those with disabilities that make it more difficult to use a mouse and keyboard and negotiate the launcher menu system on Windows 8. It is also a useful all round productivity tool as it makes it easier and faster to launch applications on Windows 8 and help Windows 8 users who miss the Windows Start menu. It offers an alternative to the familiarity of the Windows Start menu by delivering productivity, speed and ease-of-use by means of touch gestures: simply write a gesture anywhere on the screen to launch an application or a complete a task like restarting your computer. By writing directly on the screen it means you don't have to swipe and tap through many layers of the Windows 8 unfamiliar menu system.
Linpus Gesture2Launch not only allows you to launch applications but also predefined actions like - as mentioned above - restarting your computer, turning off or on Wireless, taking a screenshot and locking the screen, among many others. In the case of restarting your computer you are clearly saving 3 or 4 taps and swipes as well the effort of negotiating the Windows 8 menu system.
