DescriptionAspire is a simple Home Replacement/Application Launcher for Android. It is the first commercial application utilizing the MUSE Framework and (so far) the only launcher to boast as much as a 700% documented increase to passive battery life. One tester reported as much as two weeks.

ABOUT BATTERY USAGE
Aspire improves passive battery life... by a lot. What does this mean? For many users, the phone remains idle most of the time. With other launchers, this still results in a ton of useless processing. Aspire tweaks that processing to almost nil. In essence, you are only using your battery if you are using your phone. On average, a user can expect at least a full 24 hours with Bluetooth, Wi-fi and full brightness display. Active use will still drain the battery, particularly phone calls and internet via 3g/4g.

Aspire is currently feature light as the demand for this product required an early release (when, in fact, we were behind schedule :P ) We have already begun and will continue to add the features that make this paid app worthwhile. Over the next month, we will provide weekly updates until all features are complete.
Aspire was inspired by ADW Launcher. After we tried to encourage the author to be involved, but failed, we turned it into a clone. Some of it may look familiar to ADW users, but everything was redeveloped entirely. This rework is not an insult to ADW's developer but should be viewed as a different way to do all of the same things.
