POCO Launcher 2.0
The first thing that came to my mind when writing this article was the POCO interface from Xiaomi. On a personal level, I’ve been using this interface since its release and I’m biased towards it. The interface features a beautiful and simple home screen that is customizable and easy to use. You can open the cool app drawer by swiping up the screen. You can arrange apps based on characters and the interface will also display apps in lists based on category. Best of all, you can categorize apps based on the color of their icon, allowing you to find any app you need very quickly.
You can customize the background, menu transparency, icon size, and app drawer categories. You can also customize the look of the icons. The interface is smooth, fast, secure, free and ad-free.
Launcher iOS 15
It is impossible to find a list of the best Android launchers that does not have Nova Launcher. It can be said that it is the oldest of the existing applications and therefore it has undergone many years of continuous development. Nova gives you a very wide range of customization options. You can customize literally whatever comes to your mind. App icons, their size, app drawer settings, and much much more. It also has a wide choice and plenty of theme packs that you can download and apply. Despite the extensive customization options, Nova is incredibly fast and light.
You can also back up the customization options to easily restore them when you factory reset your phone. The paid version of the app gives you more customization options to look and feel. It is also one of the most supported launcher applications as it has been constantly updated for more than 9 years.
Niagara is a new launcher, but its new style has climbed the ranks to become one of the best launchers for Android. Niagara has a simple modern user interface and very elegant graphics. You can choose your favorite apps which will be on the home screen and navigate to any other hidden app by tapping on the vertical alphabet-style navigation menu. The notification system from your favorite apps is integrated into the launcher allowing you to reply without opening any app.
Niagara is customizable, but customization options are limited due to its simple nature. It supports widgets, built-in notifications, gestures, and two options to customize the look and feel of the launcher. It is completely ad-free.
Microsoft Launcher mainly focuses on productivity which makes it a place in the list of best Android launchers. Swipe left and you will find smart cards which consist of several sections including tasks, notes, calendar, frequently used apps, screen time and recent activities.
Smart cards can be an easy way to keep up with your tasks if you use Microsoft applications. You can also edit to add or remove widgets. There are plenty of options to customize your home screen, gestures, app drawer, icon look, status bar, and more.
AIO Launcher displays items differently than typical Android launchers. Notably, instead of a home screen filled with icons, it has a home screen full of information. It includes several categories covering everything from frequent applications, notifications, contact information, mailbox, control panel, and other useful information. All your apps are arranged one swipe apart (you can swipe forward or backward).
At the top of the list is the System Information section. There is a search button at the bottom left, with which you can search applications, contacts, and even other information on the Internet. Tapping the search button opens Settings, and swiping it opens the Quick Launch menu.
The experience of customizing your Android home screen is effortless and hesitant with the best launchers. All the apps in the list have their own advantages and disadvantages and you can easily select the one that is right for you. Changing the design of the home screen is a fun and beautiful experience, and it’s worth spending some time trying something new.
