About this app

Mere Launcher is a minimalist launcher. The home screen contains your favorite apps, optionally grouped. The app drawer contains a list of all of your apps. You can have one or two widgets. That's all.

Configurable options include:
  • List your favorite apps on the home screen, or display a large widget instead

  • Display your favorites as a list, a list with icons, or in a grid

  • Set a small widget at the top of your home screen

  • Dark and light themes

  • Custom icons

  • Background tint for improved contrast and readability

  • Set a background image (for devices that can't natively)

  • Rotate or set a fixed orientation

  • Show or hide a fast scrollbar on your apps list

  • Hide apps from the app drawer


Long press on an app for options.

An app can be added to a favorite group. Each app may only belong to one group at a time. To remove a group from the home screen, remove all apps within the group.

Requests will be considered, but I'm only one person. If you'd like to translate this into your native language, please contact me.


The app drawer button is missing or hidden by my navigation buttons! What do I do? On the home screen, press the back button 10 times and enable the Enforce Spacing option.

How do I permanently make Mere Launcher my home screen? Go to your device's Settings -> Apps -> Default Apps -> Home app and choose Mere Launcher.

I had a stroke in November 2022. Since then, I've had cognitive problems, especially my working memory. I've had to go back to using Nova 7 Prime as my launcher because it is so configurable. Unfortunately, it also has three trackers, whereas this Mere launcher, if side-loaded from f-droid, has none. I highly recommend this launcher for anyone who does not have cognitive problems, and wants a very easy on the eye launcher, using it to access to your apps, and not much else.

I'm so sorry to hear about your stroke, but I'm glad that Mere Launcher is working well for you in such a difficult time. I wish you all the best.

This is a solid app. I like it. A couple of suggestions tho. Nice to haves but not essential. It would be great to be able to change the font in the home screen although I note it does scale when more items are added to the list. It might also be useful to be able to launch hidden apps from the hidden app list rather than have to unhide them first. Other than that it's a great launcher. Bravo.

So far its very good, basic, does not need a degree in rocket science to set up. Work's smoothly. I uninstalled Action Launcher that I have used for years due to constant annoying upgrade adds. It doesn't have all these bells and whistles of other launchers, but if you like minimalist and simplicity it could be for you.
