Best launcher I've ever used and ive used all the major ones (and many others too). Too many are focused on all these useless gimmick features. All I wanted was a nice clean, empty, screen. This launcher achieves that perfectly. Been using for almost a year now with no issues. I would like to see some additional gesture support but other than that I have no suggestions. It's perfect and exactly what I've been looking for. Oh and it's FOSS. I'd give this 6 stars if I could.

REPLY- Thank you for responding! I am aware of the tags option, personally I find visual folders easier to work with (in the app drawer). Grids are better than lists IMO. But, that's not a big issue for me. I did realize one other thing missing, and this is more important, that is quick actions app shortcuts. Hope to see those in the future. FIRST- It seems very promising. I REALLY appreciate the lack of network permissions and the non-invasive requests overall. I adore the overall look and feel + the straight to search on pressing the home key. However, I am waiting for more widget and general customization options (font & icon size, number of icons on favorites bar, folders in app drawer, etc.) I understand your focus on simplicity, but there's 2 kinds of simple, and one does not necessarily equate with easy. Anyway, I am excited to see and enjoy more good work from you dev Neamar. Thanks for sharing your project!

More icons on the favorites bar are coming soon! For folders, see http://help.kisslauncher.com/tags/use-tag-bar/. Finally some more work is underway for widgets, but we miss manpower here and could use some help!

Simple, elegant and efficient. I discovered kiss a year ago and it effectively ruined all other launchers for me. I tried going back to the slick looking and feature-packed launchers that I used to have before because I was getting a little bored with how my phone looked. I COULD NOT STAND all the extra little touches and steps I had to do to perform basic tasks despite how slick it all felt. I switched back after 2 days. If you're lazy like me, this app is for you.

Thanks! It means a lot to me as that's why I started the project a long time ago.

What's new

* Option to default to a web search on enter (@harshad1)
* Improvements to "show history when keyboard is displayed" (@feilen)
* URI search. If an installed app matches the URI, open it directly. Try searching for `geo:48.8,4.83`, that's my home :) Each app provides different URI, check their documentation or manifest for additional information. (@marunjar)
* Custom icons fixes
* Link to KISS preferences from Android System
* Translation changes
