After the huge start we’re off to with our Nova Launcher Prime giveaway, we got to thinking. Wouldn’t it be cool to round out the awesomeness with the total package for homescreen customization? Why not give away some codes for Sesame Shortcuts, too?!
Well, that’s exactly what we’re doing!
If you’re unfamiliar with Sesame Shortcuts, it’s a Nova Launcher companion app. Even better, it’s now totally integrated with Nova, as of a few updates ago. The fact that it’s built-in with one of the most respected apps in the game alone speaks volumes for how remarkable Sesame is.

One thing I have to mention for those new to Sesame Shortcuts – it’s not just about creating shortcuts. There’s a lot more to it, in fact. We caught up with Phil, one of the two developers behind the app, on Reddit. We’ll let him further explain his “baby” since he can do it better than I can, for sure.
With Sesame’s search, we’re trying to have it be something you can memorize and then do without thinking. That’s why it recognizes first letters of words and ranks them higher.
For example if I typed “P” “O”, then my contact for “Profoundly Obvious” would return ranked #1. Sesame learns from each choice you make too. So next time I’d only need to type “P” to get to my shortcut to text Profoundly Obvious.
After you use it for a couple weeks, the stuff you do most often is basically 1 or 2 letter taps away. Once you learn those letter combinations, you can navigate your device without thinking.
I mean really, though. Do you need any more convincing? Sesame Shortcuts is the bee’s knees and it’s only going to get better as it evolves. That said, let’s get on to this giveaway, shall we!
We’re sticking with the same format as the Nova giveaway – this is open now and will run for two weeks. When it ends, we’ll get in contact with the winners to divvy out the codes! Again, we’re building our YouTube and Twitter presence, so those entry options are mandatory, but we’ve sprinkled in a couple optional entries, as well.

Best of luck, and may the odds be ever in your favor!
