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!

Good launcher, sometimes app icon changes dont stay, and can be slow at times with loading, especially the drawer. Could also use an option to change individual folder backgrounds (maybe even with images? Could be with the extra charged version to make it more worth it) .Definetley doesnt deserve all the flack it gets, has great customization and usually works well

Pretty buggy experience. Using folders in the drawer and not having sorted apps appear in the drawer sometimes causes the entire drawer to be blank. This occurs after restoring from a profile as well. Importing from Nova completely breaks the launcher and app data needs to be wiped in order to for the launcher to work again. Saving changes for some settings will cause hidden apps to reappear or custom icons to change. Want to like it but it feels pretty under baked

Fails to have good organisation options in the App draw. I want to be able to orangise the entire app draw. Not just a-z but in a custom order that includes folders of my choosing. A-Z organization is just useless. Add folders above the A-Z list is also useless because I want some apps not in a folder but above the folders. Take a look at HTC sense from years ago. You could or organise the app draw exactly how you wanted it to be. Why is that no longer a thing? You were so close.
