About this app

Lens Launcher is a unique, efficient way to browse and launch your apps.

Instead of scrolling long lists or swiping through multiple pages, Lens Launcher implements two unique features:

• An Equispaced Grid that displays all of your apps, regardless of screen size or app count.

• A Graphical Fisheye Lens to quickly zoom, pan and launch apps using touch gestures.

The Graphical Fisheye Lens algorithm is derived from methods proposed by Manojit Sarkar and Marc H. Brown. Their original 1993 paper is titled Graphical Fisheye Views.

Lens Launcher is an Android Experiment, written by Nick Rout.

Major contributions have been made by Rish Bhardwaj (@CreaRo).

The source code and graphical fisheye lens academic resources are on Github:

I use this on my 5 year old's tablet and it's great because I can remove everything but what I want him to see. This reduces the complexity of navigating other launchers for him. Would be great for vision-impaired users too, as the apps magnify significantly when you touch them. I've noticed it doesn't always show newly-downloaded apps until restarting on my son's laggy, low-end tablet. Would be nice to have more access to administrative settings from within the launcher. Keep up the great work!

I use this with one hand (I have a disability) I had to change the review from 4 to 1 star because of the developer greed. In the last update you've introduced the Pro payed option. Now, since I had the app installed the icon pack, background, highlight settings can be changed, only if I pay. If you want money you should put donation options and when you introduce a PRO version you should ask money for FUTURE developments, not for the settings that where there, for years, free. Thank you!

Hi Liviu, sorry to hear about your experience. The PRO version is quite affordable and we encourage you to try it out (you can always get refunded if you aren't happy). We also have some exclusive updates planned for the app in future :-)

Unique and fun. Great idea, needs a little refining. One suggestion is to have an option to "Do not automatically activate newly installed apps. I'm using it more like a folder and everytime i install a new app i have to delete it from the launcher. Keep it up, I'm curious to see where this goes.
