About this app

The traditional home screen we know was made more than a decade ago when 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.

🏆 "The best Android app I've used in years" · Joe Maring, Screen Rant

🏆 "It changed the way I look at the full device—big time" · Lewis Hilsenteger, Unbox Therapy

🏆 Among the best launchers of 2022, according to Android Police, Tom's Guide, 9to5Google, Android Central, Android Authority, and Lifewire

▌ 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 · Having to endure advertisements on a minimalist launcher designed to keep you focused does not 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.

✨ Material You Theming · Niagara Launcher adopted Material You, Android's new expressive design system, to make your home screen truly yours. Set an awesome wallpaper, and Niagara Launcher instantly themes around it. We went one step further by bringing Material You to everyone by backporting it to all Android versions.

🦄 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.

Phenomenal. Everything I was searching for in a launcher. I was going to go with one of the extreme minimal launchers, black and white as a kind of phone cleanse, but I always hate how inefficient and boring they are after a while. I found this and thought it looked neat. Turns out it is. Epic customization features that give quick access to all your apps, but negate unintentional zombie scrolling and app opening. Integrated calendar looks phenomenal and the pop up folders are a game changer.

I love the simplicity of this launcher, and how it helps to make my phone more of a utility device than a source of distraction. Unfortunately, it regularly renders my 'show all open apps' (android square) button on screen ineffective. A restart restored it briefly, but quickly stops working again. I'll likely live with it, as the benefits outweigh annoyance of needing to regularly restart. However, this certainly keeps me from being willing to buy the paid version.

I tried several launchers and this one is my favorite. Every feature is carefully thought out and it as minimal as possible, yet offers some powerful features. I am very happy with the free version which is fully functional. I was always swiping among multiple screens searching icons and getting lost with the Samsung One UI. At first I was confused by the way the scrolling works. I almost gave up, but it is actually very intuitive, sensible and clever once you realize how it works.
