Best launcher if you want a clean interface. You can customize every part of this launcher and you don't have to deal with the clutter of all of your apps being on your homepage. All of your apps are organized in a start menu style app drawer. I have been using Smart launcher for years, but I downgraded to this version due to the recent changes in the current version. You can't go wrong with Smart launcher 3

Sadly still the best launcher on Android, much better than their launchers since, by far. This is in spite of things like the notifications plugin being no longer available and backup/restore not working and searches failing if there's an ampersand in them (still a problem in the latest 5, despite my reporting it long long ago and a number of times). It's light, fast, and just works. It's sad people have forgotten that customizable minimalism is a thing.

Ita good. Version 5 was great but they ruined it with the new update. My only complaints are it is difficult to drag icons since I have to go into manage on the app to drag it rather than holding down on the app. Also, it seems more difficult to swipe left and right on this ui than on version 5 making it slightly more difficult to access my wigit and app screens. But otherwise, very good app and serves my needs.
