Fantastic minimalistic launcher! It's easily the best launcher I've come across so far. The GUI is clean and yet there are numerous options to customize your screens with funky themes and other aspects. Looking for themes and icon packs in the Atom Store is quite annoying, so I just use Play for that. Also some themes don't allow wallpaper changing which seems odd for an otherwise fairly customizable launcher. Furthermore, using your own icons often leaves them a bit smaller than the stock icons no matter what size they are.
Balanced Used this launcher for 3 years with my previous HTC One M7, and liked it very much. It had great customisability and very fun themes to choose from, loved the sliding "folder" system, the clean look, and varied functions and gestures. Ads were also not too overwhelming, imposing, nor baiting. One downside is that even when I chose the scrolling wallpaper feature for swiping between screens, I was still forced to crop the image I wanted as a wallpaper, voiding the feature. They never fixed that...
Atom is da Bomb I've tried almost every launcher out there. I've even bought a few that weren't free. In the end, I always came back Atom and I'm staying. On my Galaxy S4 or on my old Fascinate that i turned into a media player, it always looks fantastic. It's clean, easy to use, easy to customize, and it may be the only launcher where I feel comfortable paying for themes. The themes are reasonably priced and always worth every penny. You won't be sorry for downloading Atom Launcher.
Five star so far Head and shoulders above the other ad driven browsers. They are here, but they are not announced down your throat like other launchers, I often forget that this is ad driven at all. -------------- Update: Have been using this for 30 days and it is still amazing, I still forget that this is ad driven until I open certain interfaces and see an ad icon. I love this launcher.
Lightweight Launcher I've tried several launchers and this one is one of the lightest out there. I really love the simplicity of the ui design! But sometimes it crashes randomly, not that often but still the launcher needs to be updated. I'm using Zenfone 2 running Android 5.0. Overall this is a great launcher and there's enough room for customization.
Stopped working with Android N I've happily used Atom Launcher on several phones over the years. But since upgrading to Android N, it doesn't work anymore. It closes immediately. I sure wish the developer would release an update. I miss my favorite launcher, the 1 Star will become 5 again.
