* Attention * Android TV of "All version" can not use this app as home app! When google's apps are updated, they change system settings automatically and stop to use other than default home app. Even it's older than Android 6.0...

[Update 2017/04/08] Following command was banned by Google's security update.
$ adb shell pm hide com.google.android.leanbacklauncher
So, if you was using HALauncher as home app by this, maybe OS would be unstable. Sorry.

* Attention * Android TV 7.1.1- has some problems. "Landscape lock" and "Blue Light Filter" are not working fine...

"HALauncher" is a launcher for displaying and opening non-Android TV applications quickly on the Nexus Player, ADT-1, Nvidia Shield and the Razor Forge, Fire TV.

Usually, Android TV's home launcher doesn't show sideloaded apps. By using the "HALauncher", you can display and run apps designed for smartphones and tablets using a 1-click operation.

This launcher is recommended for all users who sideload apps and all apps will be available in the “Apps List” section.

HALauncher was designed using Android 5.0 material Design so it fits right in with the Android TV. It is highly customizable allowing you to change the color scheme, background graphic, icon graphic, add widgets to the home screen and remove the side panel completely to facilitate a cleaner home screen appearance.

HALauncher lets you create shortcuts to applications, webpages, IPTV channels and videos stored on your harddrive by using the “Create Shortcut” feature.

If you sideload apps on any Android TV device, you need HALauncher!

Reviews From google play store

I use this launcher for my Nvidia Shield and it has replaced the pre-installed leanback launcher. lots of settings to setup your homescreen the way you want. they have an option to turn off ads for free which is great but it almost makes you feel guilty if you turn it off :(


Great launcher for android tv, although I have noticed the newest version is crashing a lot on my tv boxes. The fact that you can save/restore settings is awesome and makes it very easy to re customize my box. However this option is not available on amazon devices. Will it be in the future?


One of the most customizable tv launchers, but clock error at noon, date/time too close together and many copies of same app in all apps list should be fixed. If these problems are fixed, plus add weather and calendar widget, it would be the best launcher.


I installed HAL on my android TV device and it's been working great. I feel that it can be difficult to upload images for backgrounds but was able to find a workaround. One thing is that it seems with a recent update my icons for apps have defaulted to a default android guy. Plex, pandora and Google music are some of the apps affected. I'm unable to figure out why this is. Not sure how to get HAL to check for these icons again. Overall really like the program but support and documentation is hard to come by.


The only thing this app seems to be missing is a start from "all apps" screen or boot into "all apps" or just an "all apps" section only no need for anything else other than settings/halauncher settings/os settings. I hope that made sense


Great launcher, if you could please have the apps organised into categories like games, movies, tv etc rather than handheld, tv etc... Because most people use this in addition to leanback not as a replacement, and we already have tv apps on the apps page and if we had a separate category for games it'd be useful


1. whenever I press back button on the remote, launcher blinks. 2. whenever installed apps get updated, their icons are getting messed up and I have to manually remove them from the apps list and add them back. Please fix it.


Amazing, with some tweaking and tinkering, this can easily be your go to console style launcher for tablets and android tv devices.


Fantastic app, not as smooth as the original Leanback launcher; but, a lot more flexible and customizable. Only wish it didn't crash/reloaded when i reached the end of the channel and actually looped back.


An excellent option for the Android TV platform. Easy to setup for your individual tastes. Thanksa


The only app that transfers apk and directly installs on my android TV. The Launcher itself is customisable and looks good.


Great launcher, great customisation seen as H96 mini launcher isnt that special....good work A***


crashing all the time


Can you add support for magic dosbox


WHY IS NOT A LAUNCHER?


Help alot on android tv indispensable


tv


I used ADB to delete the Leanback Launcher from my Shield. I did not like the default launcher after the Oreo update. I'm now using HAL instead and so far I prefer it to my previous launcher. I am still trying to figure out how to make the settings icon smaller. I enabled the setting to use an icon for settings instead of text but the icon seems to big. That's just a minor quibble however. Overall I am satisfied with this launcher. Thanks to the developer.


Was nice when the developer used to listen, but I've tried alerting him numerous times to the fact that when shadow around apps is disabled, they overlap incorrectly while scrolling through them.


I really can't see how widgets can be added to the home screen, but other than that this is the launcher that I'm using on my TV's Android box.
