About this app

Yandex Launcher is a smart app that lets you both customize your Android device to suit your style and needs, and optimize your smartphone or tablet.

Popular features
• Wallpaper collection and themes – choose one that suits your mood
• Fast search – look up contacts and apps on your device and online

Wallpapers: Enjoy built-in collections of wallpapers, such as landscapes, cities, animals, space, sports and more – these collections are regularly updated. Live Wallpapers are also supported.
Themes: In addition to classic light and dark themes, you can set the colors of menus and other interface elements in Yandex Launcher.
Apps menu: Navigate your apps with ease – Yandex Launcher arranges your apps by category or color.
Stylized icons: Use one of many built-in stylized icon packs for Yandex Launcher, or download third-party icon packs.
“All apps” button: Choose the size, color and shape of the button that opens the app menu – for example make a star with a zebra skin, or a round circle with a dog’s face.
Home screen manager: Change the order of screens, select which one to see first, remove the ones you don’t need, add new ones and switch on infinite scroll – all in one menu option.
Screen grid: Change the number of icons displayed on screen and their size.


Quick search: Swipe down on the main screen to open quick search to find your contacts, applications and information on the internet.
Speed: Yandex Launcher works quickly on all devices regardless of their generation. It won't slow down your system, and animations run smoothly even if you're using an older device.
1-Tap Boost: Track non-essential processes that are taking up your device’s memory and close them in just one tap with this widget.
Clock + Weather: See not just the current time but the forecast with this weather widget.
Smart folders: Give every folder its own screen with widgets and a background.
Icon color search: Find an app by its color even if you forget its name, or what category it belongs to.
Notifications: See when something new has happened with your apps so you never miss an important message or update. Notifications on icons can be disabled in the settings.

Super smooth, nice customization. Their assistant is NOT in English, just switch it over to Google in the menu. This app would be perfect with a customizable "widget screen" like other launchers such as Microsoft do where that 1 screen can show calendar, upcoming events, frequent contacts etc. They have a news feed which is nice but it should have an option to make the individual "cards" a little smaller. I have a big phone and they are so big it takes a lot of scrolling to see more content. Also the menu on the top of that screen is not in English.

Thank you for your interest in Launcher! We will consider your suggestions while working on the future updates. Zen is no longer supported by Yandex Launcher, but you can download it as a separate app from the Google Play Store.

I've used Yandex Browser for years and love it, so when Yandex Launcher popped up in suggested Apps I had to download and try it, and I'm glad I did! It's beautiful, highly customizable, and loaded with useful features. I love the stunning wallpapers and the ability to place widgets inside folders (most other launchers I've used only allow widgets on homescreen not in folders). So, now my phone phone is both beautiful and very well organized! Five Stars!

I love it!! It's a fine launcher with a nice and fulid fast display. The assistant that comes with this launcher (Alice) is not in English but you can always opt for google or bing. You can even search yours apps based on app colours. My dislike is that there doesn't seem to be any option to create folders for your apps - you can on the home screen but not in the app grid itself. There is an option to categorize apps automatically but I'm not very fond of it.
