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.

This is my 4th minimal launcher I've tried. I really like it, the ability to add your own widget was great since I wanted to see weather. The two big issues that make me consider moving away are the inability to get rid of icons, and the right hand side search feature. I know you can turn off the alphabet showing, but I would love if you could get rid of the swiping search and just do a plain search instead. No list of apps, you just have to type in what you want. Would add to the minimalism.

This app is nice to have for organization. It eve has some cool effects. The issue I have is, it does not have enough personalization options, such as putting multiple widgets and arranging them on a separate page that you can scroll to. The favorites menu takes up all the space and if you want even the slim extra options, you have to pay. Please add more customizations. I use Buzz fory launcher and even with the old app fazed out, the archaic APK is better than everything else that the app has.

Could we could get some sort of 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. Last thing I want to mention. The whole UI has been buggy on my Xperia 1 V. I'm having to restart the app to get it to work properly.
