About this app

The traditional home screen we know was made more than a decade ago, where phone screens were smaller than your credit card. Smartphones keep growing, but not your fingers. The minimalist Niagara Launcher makes everything accessible with one hand and lets you focus on what matters.

🏆 A standout new Android launcher for ergonomic efficiency · Computerworld

🏆 Among the best launchers of 2020 according to Tom's Guide, Android Central, Android Authority, and TechRadar

🏆 Featured on XDA Developers

▌ Top reasons to use Niagara Launcher:

✋ Ergonomic efficiency · Access everything with one hand - no matter how big your phone is.

🌊 Adaptive list · In contrast to a rigid grid layout used by other Android launchers, Niagara Launcher's list can adapt to your needs. The media player, incoming messages, or calendar events: everything pops in when it needs to.

🏄‍♀ Wave alphabet · Efficiently reach every app without even having to open an app drawer. The launcher's wave animation does not only feel satisfying but also helps you navigate your phone with just one hand.

💬 Embedded notifications · Not just notification dots: Read and respond to notifications right from your home screen.

🎯 Stay focused · The streamlined and minimalist design declutters your home screen, reduces distractions, and is super easy to use.

⛔ Ad-free · Ads on a minimalist launcher to declutter doesn't make sense. Even the free version is also completely ad-free.

⚡ Lightweight & lightning fast · Being minimalist and fluid are two of the most important aspects of Niagara Launcher. The home screen app runs smoothly on all phones. With just a few megabytes in size, no space is wasted.

✨ Declutter your home screen · Hide all pre-installed bloatware and rarely used apps to focus on your relevant apps.

🦄 Personalize your home screen · Impress your friends with Niagara Launcher's clean look and customize it to your needs. Personalize it with our integrated icon pack, fonts, and wallpapers, or use your own.

I tried this before for about a week and felt that it didn't support my workflow, although I did like it. I decided to try it again and now use it as my launcher. The last updates added pop-up folders and some other updates that improved the launcher and made it more powerful. I can start apps very quickly and if I need to search for one that is also usually quite fast. The launcher is expensive but I think it is worth the money. I do wish that searches could include internet searches as part of the sources it searches--a minor point.

Thank you for the great review Liberty Toad! We take a lot of feedback but try to keep the default UX of the app simple & minimal, many 3rd party apps pair well with Niagara for more power use & some have integrations - with the Sesame integration you get a more powerful search with web results & app quicksearch ~mug

This is my favorite launcher by far. I have only 2 issues. One is with the folders. When put an icon on the home screen and then make it a folder that main app can't be changed. So if I set Google maps as the main app then put other vehicle related apps in the folder I can't change Google maps to Waze without deleting the whole folder. Second, on the weather. There's no high and low on the current day. It shows high and low for all the other days.

Thank you for your review, Eric. Pinning items in an app's pop-up doesn't turn it into a new folder, it's the same shortcut, Niagara lets you use any list item as a pseudo-folder. To make a standard folder go to the Edit favorites screen and at the bottom tap Create pop-up folder. More here —Mug

Absolutely gorgeous launcher. After getting used to it, I can't go back. So clean, so stylish, and so smoooooooth. I love it! Edit: the recent update has taken everything great about Niagara, and turned it up to 11. Letter snapping and haptic feedback feels fantastic, and I love the smaller changes as well. Keep up the awesome work!! <3
