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.

Actually bought this in Feb of 2021.. but haven't been using it until now. I love the simplicity, reminds me of the windows phone UI (which I loved), and is a natural evolution of it. Lots of changes since I last used it, all good ones. Pop up folders are especially nice. I love the way it handles notifications from the favorites list. Very easy to use. It's also seems very quick. I had some stuttering issues with the Samsung UI, none here. Camera apps seem smoother as well.

I've had a long history of not liking default UI's for phones and desktop OS's. Most replacements are just cosmetic, some feature rich, but it's rare to get something transformative. This launcher changes the way I interact with my phone in a huge way, and it's not only simpler, but it's much cleaner and very efficient. There's enough customization to make it your own, but it's all about functionality. Outstanding.

This is one of my favorite launchers! I love the way that it's so clean on the main screen and fast in the draw. The search is very snappy as well. The only thing that I can think of that would make it better is if it had the ability to backup your configuration for the settings, app names, and custom icons to a cloud service of some kind. Or even just to backup to a file that I can upload to a cloud service.
