While Linux mobile shells are still in a very early stage, touch-optimized app launchers can significantly improve the overall user experience on touchscreen devices while using less memory than a full shell. Some of these close automatically each time an app is launched, so associating them with a particular hardware key on the mobile device might work.

There are several simple Linux launchers available, columbiad is the only one officially packaged:

GTK

Qt

Others

  • XLunch: Graphical app launcher for X, using pure Xlib and Imlib2, therefore very light and needing only few dependencies (needs entries to be created manually; closes when an app is launched; screenshot)
