Enter Sesame Shortcuts. Sesame Shortcuts has been working on building deep link shortcuts into apps for some time and experimented with a few different user interfaces for it. They have a large database of static shortcuts and systems to create new dynamic shortcuts for many apps. But they struggled with finding the best way for users to access these shortcuts.
We're playing to our strengths. Nova provides the familiar user interface and Sesame provides the shortcut backend. On Android 5.0 or higher, Sesame can provide new Android app shortcuts and search results for over 20 apps, including Contacts, Spotify, Netflix and Tasker.


Sesame Shortcuts - Android Apps on Google Play

• Integrated into Nova Launcher App Search and app icon long press (requires Android 5.0 or >)
