Before Launcher | The minimal & focused launcher

Stay focused using the minimal launcher with functionality.
Open your phone 40% less.
Reduce distraction with our notification filter. 80% of all notifications don’t warrant interruption.
Focus on what matters.

Before Launcher can help you live in real life, by making your phone minimal and keeping it smart. This minimalist launcher provides many useful features including:

Minimal homescreen
Focus on your eight most important apps.

Fast access to everything else
Quickly access all your apps in a scrollable, sortable & searchable list, with your most recent apps bubbled to the top.

Organize the clutter
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.

Save your battery
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.

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

We respect your privacy. We don't track personally identifiable data and allow for several ways to make your experience even more private.

Our product is aligned with the books Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport, and How to Break Up with Your Phone by Catherine Price. Tristan Harris and the Center for Humane Technology also provided inspiration.

NOTE: We are not done developing features for this app! We are planning on delivering icon pack support, the ability to customize backgrounds, folders, hiding apps, changing the homescreen font size & it's number of apps, partial widget support, Google Work app support and a bunch of other things as well. Email us if you have any requests at feedback@beforelabs.com. We would love to hear from you.
