About this app

Slim launcher only allows you to use fewer apps on your phone. Giving you more time to enjoy life as it was intended. Also a perfect app for a minimalist lifestyle.

All you need is less.

But this launcher comes with a twist
#1 No wallpapers: Of course Slim comes with a few color themes but that's it. (This is a good thing, trust me)

#2 Slim only allows you to use 5 apps on your mobile. Of course, you can switch and choose the ones you want but cheating slim by always replacing your choices becomes annoying.

#3 No app icons on the home screen. You make your pick to the apps you need the most and they will be displayed by the name on the home screen.

This gives you a pretty simple theme with no sudden distractions.

Don't be afraid to try it out! It's best for minimalists, students who want a strict routine or just about anyone who wants a cleaner, less cluttered home screen.

I love the simplicity of this launcher and how it focuses on what's most important to you. The home screen has everything I need EXCEPT customization. I love the fact that a tap can open your alarm or calendar but I hate that it's the default app. So default calendar is Google Calendar but I don't use that. I have a different preference. Fix that and I'd give you five stars but for now I'm uninstalling because it's rigidity makes it useless

I like it. Not sure how practical it is. I need to use banking and financial apps and definitely don't want those on my homescreen. Also when I hit the switch app/multitasking button on the phone, it shows the GUI of the system installed launcher (not sure if that is caused by my tablet or the app). It is great for someone wanting to go back to an old feature phone but still has a need for a few apps. I give it 5 stars for that reason. All in all, It doesn't meet my needs, but I like it.

I would appreciate an option to remove the phone and camera buttons, and a way to access other apps maybe? also would be nice if the way to get to settings was a little more hidden for an even more minimalist experience. I do like the Solid background color. A color picker would be nice, but not necessary. I'm testing this launcher with my work profile. Reply if anything changes and I'll give it another test =]

There's an update out. Not really what you were looking for but going forward, I think I'd try out something with the phone and camera app

What's new

Removed "about slim" from options as it led to a broken link
Code cleanup and dependency updates
