Blur - A Launcher Replacement v1.1.1

Blur - A Launcher Replacement v1.1.1
Welcome to Blur, our launcher replacement!
** Please note that this project is 100% free, the in-app purchases are solely for donate functionality. There are no ads either **
Blur is a custom launcher designed by Klinker Apps Inc. to bring you the most innovated experience on Android. With Blur, any developer can go in and create a "Page" for their app that can be displayed right on your homescreen, just a swipe away. Think about it like the Google Now Launcher, but instead of being limited to just Google Now on the side, you can use any app with a supported "Page"!
Out of the box, we have created pages for both of our newest apps, EvolveSMS and Talon for Twitter. We also have a Google Now style "Info Page" that other developers can plug into and create custom cards for.
To get the EvolveSMS page, just download the app:
To get the Talon for Twitter page, follow these steps:
1.) Download Talon for Twitter from the Play Store:
2.) Download and install the Talon Launcher Page:
The reason you need to download the seperate launcher page app is because of system limitations preventing us from reading the correct data from the normal Talon app (since it is paid).
As I said, other devs can also create their own "pages" or "info cards" for Blur! Just search the Play Store for "Blur Launcher" and they should start to appear once developers start to make them!
To apply pages to your launcher:
1.) Long click an empty space on the homescreen, then press settings.
2.) Go to the page picker, and just hit the add button on an open page (swipe left and right to get to other pages)
3.) Next time you return to your homescreen, it will restart itself and the pages will be there!

To apply info cards to the "Info Page":
1.) Add the info page to your launcher with the above steps
2.) Go back to settings and click the card picker button
3.) Pressing the "Add Card" button on that screen will then bring up a list of all the available cards
