    I'm liking it. The more I use it, the virtue of simplicity is actually very powerful and efficient. I would only wish for leaving a couple non-scrolling rows at the top excluded from history to be utilized for regular widgets like clock and calendar. The displays of new taller phones support this well.

    just what I need and everything works fine. Been using for 3 years and no problem so far

  3. guest-avatar

    So simple, and works so well! Perfect fit for my Blackberry Key2 🙂

    Since I'm one of those folks that like to get the job done and that thinks that tools should get out of the way, when I tried this launcher, I knew I had found my hammer. As with everything, this is not for everyone. Its simplicity may be too limiting for some, confusing at first for others. But give it a try with an open mind, allowing yourself time to set it properly and to your needs, maybe you'll be finding your hammer too.

  5. guest-avatar

    Great concept, very light-weight, easy to use. The idea itself requires you to remember the names of apps though since there really is no drawer or "see all apps" option. However, the search is great and if you only really use a few apps often, then this app is the fastest way to launch them. Cool idea, been enjoying it but, the concept takes some getting used to. --- edit --- Developer pointed out you can touch the green circle for all apps! Made a good launcher now great! Nice work!

  6. guest-avatar

    Been using this launcher for a couple months now. I think I've found my forever plan. I love how its UI forces you to only have the most important apps on your home drawer (else icons will get too small to be useful), thus prioritizing the absolute necessities. I find it helps me keep away from the screen a lot more than the og launcher did, ergo my phone addiction is being cured little by little everyday. Yay!

  7. guest-avatar

    Almost the perfect launcher for me. Clean and minimal userface. Easy to use. Three things are missing. 1. Adaptive icons 2. Popup window after longpress on apps. 3. Give an option to change the green colour to something else in the app I would definetly change my rating to 5 star if these will be added with an update.

  8. guest-avatar

    Simple, straight forward, light, fast, adfree, and no data collection. What more can be asked ? May be double tap to lock/unlock screen other than that, must keep as is. It's the best launcher I've ever tested. Bravo et merci.

  9. guest-avatar

    Lightweight, fast and clean. Realy good for me.

  10. guest-avatar

    'K.eep I.t S.imple S.tupid' imo best balance of minimalist/clutter-free interface and functionality. I used Evie for years and was happy with that but tried this one on a whim like a year ago and it rocks even harder

  11. guest-avatar

    FOSS, lightwieght, and efficient. Unfortunately the one thing stopping me from using this launcher is not being able to choose icon of an app.

  12. guest-avatar

    An option to be able to choose the specific icon to be used on the favorites deck would be cool.

  13. guest-avatar

    The only minimal launcher that's truly customizable in both, interface and experience. Along with Substratum this launcher helped make my entire phone and most apps consistent with my amoled theming. Thank you 🙏 cheers 🍻

  14. guest-avatar

    Simple and convenient. And the most important thing is. It's fast.

  15. guest-avatar

    The best launcher I have ever use...very fast and smooth✌✌

    Found it months ago on F-Droid and it has been my launcher of choice since then. Like it even more thsn Nova Launcher Prime. Looks especially good in combination with the Frost monotone icon pack. It's very clean and efficient. Comes of as minimalistic but is actually more powerful than it looks. It's also great that you can use whatever search engine you like, even a custom URL. Thank you for this great app.

  17. guest-avatar

    Best minimalist launcher I have tried Because: - Widget on top half of screen - Favourite app icons in the middle - Search bar for apps and contacts in the middle - Keyboard is on per default in bottom half - Has tags = app groups Things that could be improved: - Customize number of favourite bars (currently the icons are too small when you add too many) - Enable multiple widgets and improve performance during usage (my device needed several seconds after resizing the google calendar schedule)

  18. guest-avatar

    This entire launcher is just a search bar, but it's a good search bar - pulls up contacts (with option to message/call) and searching an app pulls up its shortcuts as well. Maybe not quite sesame search level but it's better than most basic search functions of other launchers! Wished I could add more than 1 widget.

    Great launcher, Easy to use

  20. guest-avatar

    Absolutely rubbish interface, nothing works and does not allow you to even find all my other apps. Somehow i managed to uninstall it. The app takes over your system not allowing access to any other app nor does its own icons or apps even work. I think this is some rogue app or malware. Dont install this. Its not what it says it is. Mr developer, reply: after installing the app nothing worked. Somehow I manged to get in the system and uninstall it. No other app denies access to all other apps

  21. guest-avatar

    This one simple, light and highly usable launcher has kept me away and has superseded Nova Launcher in my eyes. It is quick, gets me to the info I need to get to in a flash. This is a labor of love for Neamar, and it clearly shows both in his attitude and in his work. If you are looking for a different launcher than give this one a try. The fact this app is privacy-minded and is provided free of charge is quite the treat to the user base. Thanks!

  22. guest-avatar

    If you can deal with only having a few shortcuts on your home screen, it's great. I found the limitations to be too restrictive. I appreciate the excessively light footprint but I can't do without some of the stuff I've come to expect from launchers.

  23. guest-avatar

    As a first time user it was not obvious how to use the launcher. There was no user documentation to help me learn. This might be a good app, but I don't have the interest to learn by trial and error.

  24. guest-avatar

    Great launcher, intuitive and much quicker than scrolling through pages of apps.

  25. guest-avatar

    Good: Doesn't ask for too many permissions, no internet access, no ads. Bad: Way too simple, only one page, only room for one widget.

  26. guest-avatar

    REPLY- Thank you for responding! I am aware of the tags option, personally I find visual folders easier to work with (in the app drawer). Grids are better than lists IMO. But, that's not a big issue for me. I did realize one other thing missing, and this is more important, that is quick actions app shortcuts. Hope to see those in the future. FIRST- It seems very promising. I REALLY appreciate the lack of network permissions and the non-invasive requests overall. I adore the overall look and feel + the straight to search on pressing the home key. However, I am waiting for more widget and general customization options (font & icon size, number of icons on favorites bar, folders in app drawer, etc.) I understand your focus on simplicity, but there's 2 kinds of simple, and one does not necessarily equate with easy. Anyway, I am excited to see and enjoy more good work from you dev Neamar. Thanks for sharing your project!

  27. guest-avatar

    Awesome minimal launcher. I've been using it for a while and I'm not planning on using anything but KISS in the future. Sometimes a bit buggy when activating the keyboard, but it's not a big deal. It seems like when I have the keyboard set to 'always show' it will sometimes not register when typing. sometimes it's just the first character not getting caught.

  28. guest-avatar

    Great launcher !! Loved it !! It is on of the few app to provide productivity in the app !! This app makes me be product everyday and I would ask for some features - 1. add as many as favorites in dock and slide more to view more icons 2. Option to search music from the search bar !! (This would make the app insanely easy to use ) 3 . In beta there is only option to add one widget , we want a new page in the homescreen to view all widgets I wish you would take this into consider and make the launcher yet more powerful !! Will be waiting for the update

  29. guest-avatar

    I love the launcher and being able to search multiple search engines. but it's really annoying that Google is always the default search if its enabled. Theres no way to change it and I would MUCH rather DuckDuckGo as my default. Also it would be nice if the semi-transparent themes made the search bar semi-transparent as well. (I had to uninstall and reinstall the app for the play store to let me leave a review wich sucks.)

    Simple, elegant and efficient. I discovered kiss a year ago and it effectively ruined all other launchers for me. I tried going back to the slick looking and feature-packed launchers that I used to have before because I was getting a little bored with how my phone looked. I COULD NOT STAND all the extra little touches and steps I had to do to perform basic tasks despite how slick it all felt. I switched back after 2 days. If you're lazy like me, this app is for you.

  31. guest-avatar

    My new favorite launcher. It's ridiculously simple, well made, and does it's job perfectly. Everything you need is a click away. Need to call someone? Just type. need an app? Just type. Settings? Just type. Recent apps and contacts are listed above the search bar. Highly recommend.

  32. guest-avatar

    Osm 👌👌 add grid view and select multipule items for add in favorite and favorite area too much Senstive If there is one icon if we touch empty space on favorite open app History should show on double tap and also as grid view

  33. guest-avatar

    KISS is the best minimalist launcher, hands down. It is extremely customizable, from the colours (my homescreen is all black, it looks blank if you didn't know better!), to tagged and favourite apps, to app history (or lack thereof). The very slim install makes it a great choice for any phone, but the fact that it is free & open-source makes it the best one out there!

  34. guest-avatar

    this launcher is great. but it can be improved by adding 1. lock desktop to prevent unnecessary and unplanned changes when we touch, especially on the favourites 2. adding guestures eg swipe up, swipe down, swipe left, swipe right. 3. adding support for short cuts on the favourites.

  35. guest-avatar

    🙌 LOVE IT. I've been bouncing around with Search Launchers for 2 years and they keep being abandoned. This one is fast and regularly updated. The only thing I wish it had was a swipe screen to the right and left like Where Dat (app). I miss my Google Now screen on the left

  36. guest-avatar

    Great launcher.. simple n powerful.. its lightweight too. You can search anything from the get go, also u can "pinned" your fave apps. Can i suggest some feature? Like keyboard shortcut or gesture shortcut? That will be perfect.. thanks!! Edited: Thanks for your reply. I see.. i dont know about the gesture until now. But if you can customize gesture that will be great, such as double tap to sleep. Also what i mean about keyboard shortcut is you can tap and hold a key and it will perform a specific task. As for the alias and tagging thanks for the info. I really like it. I really believed this is one of a kind launcher.

  37. guest-avatar

    Love it love it love it. Some shortcuts are missing, but as i've read this is Android O issue. Would like to see more actions when searching for a name or for an app. It's simple and it helps a lot to combat compulsive swipes and unnecessary scrolling. Thank you for your work.

  38. guest-avatar

    Dusan Vasiljevic


    I absolutely love it! I only wish it had swipe down for notifications as most phones today are massive. Ok, not only that, but having additional endless scroll screen for widgets as well (like oneplus 6t). If first notifications get implemented, Ill give it 5. Re: Any way to set the width to be custom percentage and allow swipes?

  39. guest-avatar

    Not perfect, but BETTER THAN every single other app that tries to do the same thing, and with a lot less storage, cpu, & RAM usage. Installed + storage + cache is still under 1mb! better than even just simple stand alone app drawers. I'm using this for my work profile.

  40. guest-avatar

    Boy o boy, this launcher is superb. I prefer it to the original launcher my phone came with. I recommend it to all Android users who like good apps. I have not seen any ad and that's commendable. I hope it will continue being good even when improved to have lock screen and Google news feature.Thumb up and bravo to the developer.Israel Nzeadi is mine name. Thanks.

  41. guest-avatar

    For an option "on click show frequently used" , after i click it is showing the frequent used apps on screen, but as i lock my screen & open it, it is showing a glance of frequent apps... Soo please add "on lock open hide frequentapps" thank you dev.

  42. guest-avatar

    Yes, if i press the 3 dots there is available tags and kiss menu options which are ok. Then also available actions, which i think can only include 2 items, show history and show untagged. I can remove from options show untagged, so now i have only show history but history already on my desktop so better to hide available actions altogether in my mind, and maybe the extra space could be used to add more than 5 tags

  43. guest-avatar

    It's simple, easy to use and very lightweight. Features get added from time to time. You want to keep it practical - find everything fast and have great battery life + it looks very good = this launcher.

  44. guest-avatar

    Brilliant and simple. Using KISS launcher for the past one year. Less consumption of the RAM and battery. ****The lag in app search: KISS launcher is my default launcher. ++I will recheck the lag following the new update, and will let u know if it persists.

  45. guest-avatar

    Dont know why i resisted using this for so long. it just seemed too simple. i tried othet launchers first. all were way too complicated. i really did want something simple, easy, effortless. if theres something better, id like to see it. this should be everyones first install.

  46. guest-avatar

    The best of the FOSS launchers

  47. guest-avatar

    This thing is the best thing you will ever want for your android. It's the best launcher I've discovered so far and use it everyday. It makes you focused like an eagle. Just what you need, to stay organized and focused. Highly customizable.

    Free, fast and simple launcher. No adds, love the search function. I have a separate app in nova so I can search all my apps. It can easily become my default launcher. Thank you for a very quick reply on the review. Initially I tried to download it from F-Droid but it gave me an error.

  49. guest-avatar

    Very superb launcher . pls include the following: 1: Notification count badge 2: allow home button to go back to home page and then lock phone. 3: desktop lock to restrict access on phone apps etc. This is for the main time. Need ur response and implementation soonest.

  50. guest-avatar

    Honestly, it just works. Its a great launcher and has become my default for about a year now.

  51. guest-avatar

    Best launcher around! Simple, effective, performant, and each feature added makes it more intuitive and convenient. Among the first applications I install on a new phone/ROM. Plus, it's open source!

  52. guest-avatar

    Best Idea, but can not add more than one widget on screen, please add multiscreen feature... Scrolling app main menu app crash sometime, add voice search feature

  53. guest-avatar

    this is really good.its fast and light,but i just found a launcher called "a decluttered launcher" which opens the appp your searchinh while your detects and opens automatically so i find it much better.if this launcher could use that feature as well,this launcher would be my fav.

  54. guest-avatar

    There is no faster or cleaner launcher that this one. Exactly what I was looking for, open source, privacy aware, fast and no bull. Massive thanks to the developer for this great app.

  55. guest-avatar

    I like the minimalist look of this launcher. But it's always non responsive after I restart my device. The latest update hasn't fixed this problem.

  56. guest-avatar

    Simply the best launcher. Fast, lightweight, especially no ads!

  57. guest-avatar

    Best launcher i have ever used. me, a longtime nova launcher prime user abandoned that for super intuitive kiss launcher. its just fast. it replaced my dialer app also. super light, simple, fast. please don't add unwanted features. keep it like this.minimal.

    Gaëtan Guéraud


    Awesome launcher, excluding an app doesn't seem to work if there is a reboot or update. Also I like the Amoled theme idea but I'd like to be able to still have a wallpaper.

  61. guest-avatar

    Kacper Kowalczyk


    Nice and simple, but lack of any swipe gestures (especially for notifications drop-down) is an absolute deal breaker. Edit after dev reply: Turns out there is limited gesture support but it really isn't up to scratch for my needs.

  62. guest-avatar

    don't get me wrong, it's pretty great as a launcher but I personally need to be able to have more than one widget for this app to have any proper integrity. great idea though, not knocking it. 🖐️😅

  63. guest-avatar

    It's so gosh darn simple. Think what you want, type it, get it. No searching through an infinite number of apps you don't care about.

  64. guest-avatar

    I feel that most launchers are based on the grid model and I hate that. as a minimalist this is my favorite luncher... it automatically sorts out all of the stuff that you like to the bottom.

  65. guest-avatar

    Lawrence Lagerlof


    Super small after installed. Super fast start. Super fast search. Super memory friendly. No in-app purchases. You devs are super cool.

  66. guest-avatar

    I search for launchers,install this and that and ultimately fall here,always.Its simple,and fluid. It has some problems with widgets and putting apps on favorite bar.Please make them more user-friendly.

  67. guest-avatar

    Amardhruva N Prabhu


    Very fast launcher app. Very low memory footprint. Has only the features you use everyday. Very good app.

  68. guest-avatar

    It has a very small memory footprint and it's incredibly fast and responsive. The perfect choice for a smartphone with 1 GB RAM or less.

  69. guest-avatar

    Everything is great except ONE IMPORTANT THING: SHORTCUTS. I can add neither a playlist shortcut nor any other shortcut. Very disappointed.

  70. guest-avatar

    fast and low memory footprint. keep the good work on and this concept and you might find it goes OEM... Good luck.

  71. guest-avatar

    Only feature I'm missing is donate button. I would love to support future development and maintenance of this launcher.

  72. guest-avatar

    Samawaat El-3ulaa


    needs pull down to show notifications option even on full mode. not just mini mode. and support for multiple widgets. at least 3.

  73. guest-avatar

    nobody reads comment names anymore


    d best if u love a powerful launcher that weighs less than 1 mb that also has a beautiful minimalistic touch edit: please return z-a option for listing apps. also another cool feature would be hide apps where only typing specific characters would reveal the hidden app/s thanks man u the best. i had edited a few stuff from the apk to really suit my needs as its super intuitively written app its a breeze to edit if thats ok with you

  74. guest-avatar


  75. guest-avatar

    Superb launcher, You can operate mobile within seconds. I was looking for this kind of launcher from longtime. Thank you

  77. guest-avatar

    Best launcher! Fast and simple! Focused only in the necessary options for a launcher.

  78. guest-avatar

    I really enjoy the clean layout, as well as the customizability.

  79. guest-avatar

    Would give 5 if notification dots were available. Also, it would be nice if web search results opened in Google app not Chrome.

  80. guest-avatar

    Finally... we're at home Baby... The kiss launcher is all I ever wanted! Minimalistic, Apps reorder dependent on usage, fast, intuitive... I just love it!

  81. guest-avatar

    Best launcher for minimalist users who prefer clutter free screen. Highly efficient and very customisable.

  82. guest-avatar

    Hi developer. i would like to appreciate your efforts. it is one of the best launcher i ever used. i am using it since 1 year. i just want to request you that add double tap to sleep on homescreen in next update it will be to helpfull for all.

  83. guest-avatar

    Everything is awesome!!! But, please add changing the name and icon for every single (particular) app, please.

  84. guest-avatar

  85. guest-avatar

    Best ever but need security password for exclude application

    I love it. I actually found this through a feature request similar to one here so I decided to check it out myself.

  87. guest-avatar

    this is a smooth, fast, beautiful launcher with nothing spare!

  88. guest-avatar

    A moderate usage, not that smooth there is always some hickup and why is it trying to read my contact all the time?

  89. guest-avatar

    Great launcher. Love being able to make and apply custom icons.

  90. guest-avatar

    Taking a star for the addition of a calculator.... Don't ruin it with gimmicks! Always loved this on F-Droid.

  91. guest-avatar

    fast, simple, beautiful and open source

  92. guest-avatar

    Does what it says in style. No ads. Well done!

  93. guest-avatar

    It's awesome. Could you possibly add a setting to switch between descending and ascending order for the app display?

  94. guest-avatar

    The best launcher I've tried. Superfast, superlight, customizable, useful, opensource.

  95. guest-avatar

    Most efficient launcher Please add support for multiple widgets.

  96. guest-avatar

    Best launcher, simple, clean, useful, just perfect!.

  97. guest-avatar

    less permissions, less storage, no stupid feature, simple and NO ADS‼

  98. guest-avatar

    Works great with my BlackBerry! Keyboard + KISS Launcher is a match made in heaven.

  99. guest-avatar

    Google app Salaam I love kiss launcher. But my search results redirect me to web browser like chrome isn't there feature from where it can be redirected direct to Google native app? Thank you

  100. guest-avatar

    really love this, but please add lock menu, and quick whatsapp button while showing contact, it will making more fun
