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.

A very modern and simple UI. The home screen animations are super fluid and smooth. The desktop itself is quite minimalist. You can easily reach everything in the launcher one-handed. The full version, which enables deeper customization costs $5.99/yr or $15 for lifetime membership. 01/26/22 Update: lost access to my premium membership. I entered my email to restore membership and it says there is no subscription associated with my email. But my old phone still has premium. I'm irritated.

By far my favorite launcher! Pop-up folders are a much better way than anything I've come across. I love the simplicity and how easy it is to navigate! 9.5 out of 10!!! Suggestion: make the coin feature so it opens things in each direction so you can still flip the thing. I give up a pop up just so i can flip it. I would give a 9.9 out of 10 then!

I would buy premium if it supported proper layout for foldables. Unfortunately it's just not good for the inner screen at all. Edit for clarification: The two columns only apply to icons and not custom widgets. For instance, I like to have my full calendar visible on the home acreen. It looks fine on the outer screen, but on the inner screen the widget is stretched and misshapen and looks unpleasant. I would love for widgets to have the option of being restricted to the columns.

Thanks for your review, Joe. I'm not sure what's meant by a proper layout. The launcher is list-based, it was optimized more for foldables by enabling the two-column layout on wider displays like the inner display which improves support for a variety of form factors, however, it doesn't save multiple different states of your home screen. —Mug
