8 Best Free Android Launchers
The Android platform is arguably one of the most flexible
mobile operating systems in the customization stakes. Almost every part
of the Android interface can be modified to meet the requirements
of the user without having to gain privileged control (often referred
to as "root access"). Customization extends far beyond simply changing
the wallpaper, sounds, and widgets.
When the Home button on an Android phone is pressed, the stock
launcher is displayed. Whilst the concept of this launcher is well
thought out, its implementation is not to everyone's taste.
Fortunately, there are a whole raft of home replacement applications
available for Android, ranging from the slickest and most feature-laden
launchers, to the decidedly weird and wacky.
Given the plethora of software, the purpose of this article is
to provide an insight into the best free home replacement apps
available for the Android platform. Hopefully, there will be something
here that will rejuvenate your phone, however old it is.
Now, let's explore the 8 launchers at
hand. For each title we have compiled its own portal page, a full
description with an in-depth analysis of its features, screenshots of
the software in action, together with links to relevant resources and
reviews. We give our highest recommendation to LauncherPro,
ADW.Launcher, and GO Launcher EX.
