Must Have Android Launchers

Go Launcher EX

Go Launcher is to this date, the most popular launcher in the play store with over 1,000,000 downloads.  What makes go launcher so successful is its endless expansion opportunities.  Go launcher not only has 100 of themes, but even their own market  dedicated to their launcher. t’s fast response, and highly customizable, the way any android launcher should be.

smart Launcher

Smart launcher takes minimalist to a whole new level.  There are no traditional home screens when using smart launcher.  Instead, you have 6 shortcuts that can take you to your most used apps.  The app drawer itself divides the apps into specific categories to make it  more organized.  Smart launcher also has different themes and customizations that can be applied. A little goes a long way with this launcher.

swipepad

Swipepad isn’t really a launcher. It’s an overlay that sits on your screen; allowing you to swipe in the corner to get shortcuts to any app you want.  It’s a simple and easy way to navigate between multiple apps, and gives your device some cool gestures.

atom launcher

 Atom launcher, similar to smart launcher, has a minimalist approach. It’s fast, efficient and provides a good amount of customization, allowing for different themes and an unique app drawer.

ADW Launcher

Another fan favorite is ADW launcher.  ADW launcher might not have all the bells and whistles of Go launcher, but it provides you a solid ICS (Android 4.0) like theme, at no cost to performance or space.  It also allows you to change up the theme with whatever you desire.

Launcher 7

If you’re looking for a Windows Phone style look on your android, then Launcher 7 is the answer.  Launcher 7 is amazing because it provides the full Wp7 feel on your android device.  You have live tiles, and the ability to make your own.  Also, everything is fast and visually appealing.  You can even create app-specific live tiles.  Overall, the best option for any WP fan out there.

Espier Launcher

Of course, if WP7 doesn’t appeal to you, maybe IOS will.  Espier Launcher is unique because it gives your phone the “iPhone look.”  The icons all have that blocky shape to them, and your home screen is just an endless scroll of all of your apps. Definitely a worthwhile theme for anyone who might be making the transition to android from ios and is feeling a little nostalgic.

Apex

Apex launcher, like ADW gives you a solid stock like experience, with the ability to customize however you please.  Apex launcher is extremely fast, and offers all the custombility that you would expect.

Swapps

*/My favourite app/*
Here’s another launcher wannabe Swapps.  Swapps allows you to swype to the side of your screen to launch any app that you want.  You can access shortcuts, and browse your app drawer.  Another great option if you’re looking to “gestureify” your device.

Nova Launcher

Last but not least, is Nova launcher.  It’s pretty much the same old story, Like ADW and Apex.  Nova provides you a smooth stock experience with the ability to customize your home screen, app drawers, folder, possible anything that you can think of. You can even import data from any of your previous launchers.
