Please, what are your top 10 best Launchers for Android?
Nova Launcher and Smart Launcher are two good ones.
Do people really switch launchers that much? Personally I found one I like and have pretty much stick with it. I may occasionally try another if it has an interesting feature - but otherwise, it is just kind of a pain to switch often. Anyway, I don't think I can name 10 but here are some of the top launchers:
GO Launcher is the one I personally use and like
Nova Launcher is probably the most popular
Apex Launcher is a close second
A lot of people like the Google Experience Launcher
Aviate is kinda interesting if you like idea of it customizing your home screen for context (ie at work, at home, etc)
Those are pretty much all the ones I can think of off the top of my head.
Up until recently, I've been using TSF Shell launcher. But since their latest update, the "location" permission has been eating my battery.
Now I'm using Next Launcher Liking it very much!!
I've used Go launcher in the past....the very distant past.
Other than those 3, I've not used any other launchers.
Currently Nova on my GS5.
I use Next Launcher as well!
i switch between tsf shell and nova launcher prime.
Ok , so I think Nova Launcher it' s a very good launcher. And for others users ?
I mainly use Nova, but also have Apex installed. They are quite similar, so I can use one for playing with alternative screen layouts without disturbing my current setup. Paid versions of both, so have all features available.
I've purchased Nova Prime (my current default), ADW and TSF, and used Apex, Next, HTC Sense, Samsung's TouchWiz and Sony's Xperia on various devices. Each has their own pros and cons... try each launcher out and see which one fits YOUR needs.
I don't have a top ten. My faves are Nova Prime launcher and Go launcher.
I use Nova at the moment, but I've used Apex, ADW, Go, Smart Launcher, Next, Aviate and Action Launcher in the past.
I think my favourite is Nova, but Aviate is ok every once in a while.
I only use one, Nova. There is no 2 through 10.
Holo Launcher for my previous phone (2.3). Nova/Apex for customisation or Better Launcher for something light on my current phone (4.2.2).
dam, a lot of people use Nova... I use Go.
but I have been hearing that Go slows your phone down.... I think I will give Nova a try
I Use Nova Prime For My Note 4 and have on my past phones also
I've tinkered with a handful, and always go back to Nova.
My top launchers are nova, next, lucid then action. I've purchased the pro version of each. I tried voxis launched but it's still too glitchy so got a refund on that one.
Nova Launcher Prime. Well worth the few bucks.
What Launchers let you use icon theme packs? Standard icons are just so lame
Most all of the 3rd party ones will.
You only need one - Nova ...
Yep. Used Nova for years, tried others, and kept coming back. Switched to Smart Launcher, and haven't gone back. I realized that I didn't want 7 different screens, and Smart Launcher still allows widgets, but it is so simple in its layout, my phone is a thousand percent easier to use. I personally would say Smart Launcher is #1, and Nova launcher is #2-#10.
