Launchers in Android is one thing that makes Android stand out from the crowd of different smartphone operating systems. By making use of the different Android launchers out there, your possibilities are limitless. In this article I will cover the top 5 launchers for Android which I think are the best.
Nova launcher is by far one of the best Android launchers out there with no doubts. It is so simple, very fast and yet looks beautiful. Now when it comes to the features, it is gem. It supports icon packs, offers one of the simplest launcher UI and supports Ok Google hot word right from the launcher home screen. Of course this not a complete list, so make sure you go through the Google Play listing of this launcher and see if it suits you.
After Nova, my second favorite is Buzz launcher. Buzz launcher is more of a eye candy launcher than a simple and sleek launcher. It sure has a lot of awesome features and it looks pretty cool too. The best part about this launcher how a lot of themes available themes for it. As of now there are a whopping 400,000+ free themes available for Buzz launcher which in my opinion is a great thing to have.
If you some how end up not liking Nova launcher and yet like the simple UIs out there, then Apex might be the one for you. With Apex launcher you will get a hell lot of customization features along with its simplicity. With Apex you will be able to give your phone a completely customized look. The best part about this launcher is how the team behind it keeps on adding new features to the launcher.
Now this is the launcher I use for my Android phone. The reason why I didn’t give the first spot for this one is, how many people will dislike this launcher. The Aviate launcher is not a normal launcher and it may take some time to get it going the way you want it to. The best part about this launcher is, how it changes the phone according to the time and situation. Its like everything you need to access will be right on your desktop as you need it, Avaite is capable of doing that. And this is the beauty of this launcher, if you’re at work, you will get easy access to emails, and other work related productivity tools, if you’re currently traveling, the launcher will present you with tools to make the navigation easy as possible, if you’re at night and at home, it will come up with the whole bunch of tools and applications which you may need at night. So if you think you don’t mind a completely new experience, you must give this launcher a chance. I am pretty sure you will love it.
This is another minimal looking launcher but with a lot of useful options. I am sure the developers have given it a lot of thoughts, because you won’t believe how useful some of these features this launcher have. Like Buzz launcher, this one too support themes and another good thing about this launcher is how it comes with customizable lock screens. Also this launcher is very frequently updated with new features and bug fixes.
