A launcher can completely change the look and feel of your Android. If you fancy a change, here are six free apps for you to try.
Although most launchers can be customised, few offer the option of mixing and matching each part of the homescreen. C Launcher lets you choose the wallpaper and the icons from a collection of themes.
If you really want to get creative with your launcher, LINE Launcher (formerly dodol launcher) is the one for you. Not only are there thousands of wallpapers to choose from, you can also add lots of stickers to your device’s homescreen.
If you like your homescreen and app drawer attractively designed and well laid out, take a look at Smart Launcher 3. Set up your app preferences and see them displayed in a wheel before heading to your app drawer that’s sorted by category.
The ultra-customisable Total Launcher has a range of widgets for you to place on your device’s homescreen. These can all be shrunk or enlarged by hand, so your clock can be as big or as small as you want it to be.
Although Nokia is no longer part of the Android family, its launcher certainly is. Z Launcher’s headline feature, though very simplistic, is the ability to scribble a letter on the screen in order to make all apps that contain that specific letter appear.
This has to be the most unique-looking app drawer on the Google Play store. While the launcher itself is standard, the app drawer is set out like a honeycomb. It looks bizarre at first, but if you value uniqueness then this is the way to go.
