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.

I've been using this app for so long and it's bt far my favorite launcher. However. I wish we could get some background added to the text. It's very difficult to enjoy wallpapers when the text gets lost in it. Also I am not a fan of this new "frequently search" feature on the search bar. It contradicts hiding suggested apps. I don't want to see my recently used apps or anything of that. Why add something like that and not give us the option to disable it?

Was good until I tried adding a widget. Can't be moved to the bottom, and the app list automatically scrolls to the top after opening an app. The app list becomes redundant and slower than using a regular launcher as soon as you add a widget because it takes up a lot of the screen and you need to scroll to the bottom to open apps. You could use popup folders, but I am not spending $10/yr or $30 for the basic feature of moving a widget. Switching back to Nova.

Hello DarkLilFox, thanks for your review. We are sorry that you are not satisfied with the launcher right now, but we'd love to turn you over! Have you tried our free trial phase for pro now? There are many more features than just Popups for Pro users. Find more here: Cheers, Stephan

I had used Nova and Apex and Smart Launcher, and many others. I am still not satisfied, and still searching. I would like a launcher to be fast and minimalistic. Also, I don't like spend hours customizing it. I am glad that I have found Niagara Launcher. All controls are in one page. I love it so much I purchased it for lifetime. Also, no ads when you are using this launcher. Anycon is awesome. The solution to the missing icons when customizing icons. Keep up the good work.
