About this app

A launcher is not just a home, it needs to be an experience.

👨‍💻 Support Chat: t.me/HyperionHub
🗞 Hyperion Dock (Enable Google Feed): prjkt.io/dock

We believe that not only should everyone deserve a sweet, feature-filled launcher with a beautiful UX, we wanted it to always be up to date with the best of what Google has to offer at a consistent pace, as well as consistently pushing new tweaks and customization options that users want...without the bloat!

We streamlined this launcher for ourselves; by bringing the best features we love from many launchers found on the market and creating a unified experience - we can truly call this home. As usual, we have everything that a typical Launcher3 based launcher has, but much more!

Had to drop another star because the same issue still happening and many icon revert to the original after being changed. I had to drop it down a star because when I hide certain apps they pop back up within a day and it's very irritating and it's been going on for a long time. Otherwise I do like it but I'm going to have to uninstall because it's messing with my design aesthetic.

So far, I've had no issues and I'm finding it better than the popular (overrated) launcher I'm replacing. I'll run it for a few days, then buy a license (donate, or whatever IAP model they use). It's very customizable and I'm finding it snappy (especially with animations set to fast). I'm not big on animations, but I leave them on so I can test my own apps. Good job, developer (only the bottom item on an icon context menu - like hide - is not selectable when the navigation bar is "hidden").

Ok I have 2 issues. 1# when I am using an app, any app, and slide up to go to home screen it takes almost 1-2 seconds for the home screen to load up, it's like a refresh but in my opinion, that's a lot of time for something as little as a launcher 2# when on the home screen, I can't slide up and hold to get into recent apps, I have to really good the slide for 5-10 second... It's annoying
