The big advantage in favor of Android against other operating systems is something we have repeated to the point of satiety: its capacity of personalization is almost unlimited. Every day the community impresses us with new and amazing combinations of designs with different components of the system to make a smartphone, unique to its owner.
Undoubtedly, one of the most fundamental parts of the Android system is its launcher or application launcher. It is practically the part of the interface that we use most, and that allows us to run and manage the apps we have installed on our mobile, and the best thing is that we can change it for the one we like the most. Bearing in mind that the default comes in most custom layers to the stock style is the Google Now Launcher which will disappear shortly we will introduce 3 unique launchers to give that touch to your mobile phone.
Inaugurates our list Evie Launcher, a minimalist application launcher, nice, clean and above all, very, but very complete and useful. According to the developers themselves, it is an app “developed by Android users and designed for Android users” so, sure, their customization ability will leave a good taste. And best of all, aside from being free on Google Play, we have a great video showing you in action.
Evie Launcher has a more or less main desktop where we can anchor those applications that we use more normally, but if we move to the left we will find a list of all the applications we have installed, sorted alphabetically. That same panel also offers options for the widgets, arranged in the same way as the apps, and a tab with a configuration menu with different settings, all designed to fit as you like.
Without a doubt the best thing about Evie Launcher is the minimalist style it has in every part of the application. We see it for example in the search bar or in the multiple options that it has to adjust the size of the box of apps, and others. Without a doubt, an option more than interesting.
We follow our list with a very special launcher, since the concept on which it is based is not precisely common. Hexy Launcher, a launcher that we talked about a while ago whose main offer for us is to split the applications into hexagons. Yes, in hexagons. How? Well this way. These of SwiftKey and their ideas …
The thing goes for that, basically. The launcher groups in several sections of hexagons all your apps by colors, although this is configurable. All apps in a white pattern color will be divided into one section, and so on with all. That is, you will have all your applications as in a panel of bees, something very curious. Although its only drawback is that when it comes to searching for that application, the first few seconds of use are somewhat strange.
We can say that this is not the only advantage of Hexy Launcher. Being made by SwiftKey, it has integration with its keyboard and has very interesting options of personalization if we bicheamos a little by adjustments. In addition, if you combine it with a good wallpaper …
And we closed the list with a launcher that although not as flashy as the first two, yes that is a launcher consecrated, and complete. If you are looking for an alternative compatible with root and you are going to the productivity roll, stay, this will interest you.
Action Launcher is a launcher that has lots of options related to making your apps and shortcuts much more accessible to be more productive. His options are many, not for nothing was chosen from the best launchers of 2016 and was included by default in the Nexus. With a few options, you could have all the day’s work on hand from a single widget, or at most, by sliding your finger to one side.
It is not brutally beautiful, because it bears a great resemblance to the now-defunct Now Launcher, but without a doubt, it is a very interesting option for those who are busy and with a lot of trouble not to wrap the blanket to the head and to have everything with a blow. Very, very recommended.
