• Automatic app sorting

Apps are automatically sorted into categories, you won't have to waste time organizing your icons anymore! The advantages of automatic app sorting have been recognized also by Apple which introduced it in their App Library in iOS 14.

• Ambient theme
Smart Launcher automatically changes the theme colors to match your wallpaper.

• Designed to be used with one hand
We moved the items you need to interact the most, in the bottom part of the screen where they are easier to reach.

• Responsive build-in widgets
Smart Launcher includes a full set of responsive widgets.

• Customization
Smart Launcher is completely customizable. You can now modify every single color of the theme unlocking infinite possibilities of color combination. Change fonts on the home screen choosing among thousands of fonts from Google Fonts.

• Smart search
The Smart Launcher search bar allows to quickly find contacts and apps or to perform actions like searching on the web, adding a contact, or performing a calculation.

• Adaptive icons
The icon format introduced with Android 8.0 Oreo is fully supported and available for any Android device! Adaptive icons mean not only customizable shapes but also beautiful and bigger icons!

• Gestures and hotkeys
Both gestures and hotkeys are supported and configurable. You can turn off the screen with a double-tap or show the notification panel with a swipe.

• On-screen notifications
Smart Launcher will now show you which apps have active notifications without requiring you to download an external plugin. This makes the feature more stable and reliable.

• Ultra immersive mode
You can now hide the navigation bar in the launcher to maximize the screen space.

• Protect your apps
You can hide the apps you want and if you want to keep them secret, you can protect them with a PIN.

• Wallpaper selection
Smart Launcher includes a very efficient wallpaper picker that allows you to choose between many sources of pictures. You can also backup your wallpaper before trying a new one!


Smart Launcher is a community-driven project, regularly updated with new features to support the most recent Android APIs and new devices. You can join our community and find out how to become a beta tester using this link:


Smart Launcher requires access to the Android Accessibility API in order to provide some features like turning off the screen or showing the notification panel with a gesture. Enabling the access is optional and in any case, Smart Launcher will never collect any kind of data using this API.

So close to great... But the constant freezing where icons aren't accessible until I lock/unlock (this works most of the time) plus some odd design choices/omissions like making it really hard to add apps to the 'app page' or move between categories, or having a "news page" that forces you to use something called "Microsoft Start" as a news source which can only seem to find clickbait trash... Back to pixel launcher I guess :/.

UPD: Often freezes and shows no icons, just the background wallpaper. When I click around some random screens show up. Like it reacts to my clicking but shows the screen from two clicks away. Have to uninstall unfortunately. Since it is almost unusable now. OLD: I am using this launcher for a very long time on all my devices. I really like that I can organize all my apps into spearate tabs and how quickly I can navigate through them.

I have the new s24 ultra, and immediately downloaded SL bc I enjoyed it on my s20. Ever since, I've had issues where it freezes randomly my main screen so I can click to open apps, nor scroll up down right or left to other pages on my phone. I have to put it in sleep mode and then reactivate for it to stop. But, sometimes it still won't unlock, so I have to do it multiple times. What's that about? It's disappointing.
