Before Launcher gets your time back, by giving your phone a minimal look. This minimalist launcher provides many useful features including:

Minimal homescreen
Quickly launch your most important apps. It’s configurable, too!

Customize the look, make your own clean style
Choose from our large list of photo, gradient and solid themes or create your own.

Fast access to your favorites and everything else
Quickly access all your apps in a scrollable, sortable & searchable list.

Favorite, folder and hide your apps
Group apps into folders, pin apps to the top of your apps list, and hide unwanted and distracting bloatware. (available)

Hide less important notifications
Our filtered notification drawer is unique. Less important notifications don't flash, vibrate, make noise or appear on your lock screen. But, you still receive them and they are accessible with an easy swipe.

Notified but not distracted
Focus on what is essential. Your important notifications work normally, so you don’t miss anything.

Truly private
We are not in the business of capturing or selling your data. We don't track any personally identifiable data -- we even allow you to turn off our anonymous analytics.

No required permissions = more privacy/security
Many other launchers want 10 or more device permissions. (the notification filter asks for one access but it can be turned off).

Go longer between charges
Use our true black background to significantly preserve your battery (if your phone has an AMOLED screen).

Take control of your phone
Before Launcher sorts apps by their size, their installed date and the last time you used them. Uninstall the ones that take up too much space, or you never use.

Style your app icons
Add our own styles and also add 3rd party icon packs (beta feature)

Easy set up
Our guided process helps you get Before Launcher set up in no time.

Selected as one of Fast Company's best new apps of the year in 2019.

Our launcher is inspired by the minimalism movement. This includes: (1) Books and authors like Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport, How to Break Up with Your Phone by Catherine Price and Indistractable by Nir Ayal. (2) Products like the Lightphone.

NOTE: We would love to hear from you. We have a development roadmap that includes future support for dual sims, cloned apps, custom fonts, Work Profile and tablet devices (but are not available in the current release).
