More than a simple launcher, Lightning is a fast, light and extremely customizable tool to build the perfect home screen. To build your home screen.

No other launcher can compete with Lightning when it comes to customizability. Have a look at the full list of features and you will be convinced ;-)

And if an extreme customizability were not enough, Lightning is also very light on memory and a blazing fast launcher. It works like a charm on all phones and tablets, from Android 2.2 up to newest Android versions.

Under the hood, Lightning is propelled by a powerful and unique engine allowing you to arrange your apps and widgets using the best possible flexibility and style. 

• It doesn't matter whether you want your icons to be nicely aligned on a grid, or pixel perfect positioned, or even scaled/ rotated/skewed in all directions: Lightning does it all with ease.
• It doesn't matter whether you need a single page, five, or half a million with different setups for work, private use and children: Lightning offers an unrivaled way to manage your precious screen estate.
• It doesn't matter whether your device is one of these beloved pioneer Android phones or if you run the latest and greatest flagship: Lightning doesn't waste CPU nor memory; the app strives to remain light and fast for everyone.

With its wide range of features, Lightning perfectly copes with all kind of home screens: classic, minimalist, gesture based, with side bars or moveable panels,... Lightning doesn't limit you to a particular scheme: it aims to free your creativity instead. Essentially, this home screen can do everything you can imagine.

Key Features (not an exhaustive list):

• Highly customizable desktop: change font, size, color, wallpaper, grid lines, folder options, status/navigation bar colors, layouts, scrolling & zooming options, events, actions, gestures, pretty much everything.

• Unique limitless desktop: a desktop is a surface growing as needed, in all directions. Move an icon to the right or left and a new page will be automatically created. And it works for pages above and below too! This means as much space as needed for your apps, and also a much more efficient navigation.

• As many desktops as needed: one for private, work, party, kids, etc. Add, remove and re-arrange desktops at will, each desktop being an independent and unlimited setup.

• Combined grid and free positioning: use the grid to easily align apps, use free positioning to adjust the size, position and rotation of any item (including widgets).

• Pinned items: prevent any item from moving when scrolling your pages. This is handy to create docked elements anywhere on the screen, and more.

• Scripting support: use JavaScript to unleash the full Lightning power. Load user contributed scripts to extend your setup, or create your own. With Lightning Launcher scripts, only sky is the limit!

• And lots more: enhanced app drawer, panels, Tasker integration, lock screen, floating desktop,... Please visit the developer homepage for detailed feature list, manual and how to’s.

Things to be aware of (please read this notice):

• With its wide set of options and switches, Lightning has a learning curve. But isn't that a small price to pay to get the most exciting and unique home screen ;-) Join the user community to get tips and tricks!

Lightning is in constant evolution thanks to a continuous and incredible user feedback (first release in August 2011). All comments, suggestions and bug reports are welcome. For bug reports, suggestions and any other questions, please visit the Lightning Launcher Community at

Reviews From google play store

Disappointing. It might be my fault but having the proper version of Android does not ensure that the app is tailored to your actual screen. It happened with three smartphones all the way from 4.2 to 9, being the phones relatively common ones (note 2 Samsung to Xiaomi n8t).

- Not compatible with Android 10 Gesture Navigation (gestures cannot be enabled when set as Home App) - setColor does not work from Android 10 - ClearText HTTP requests do not work since last update (14.3) Developer does not respond to the emails.

If your into Customisation , Just forget any other launcher this is the King ... More options and settings than you could possibly imagine also super lightweight ...! Never going to use anything else now that I've started using this launcher .... Amazing work Pierre 🙂 Edit: Tried a few launcher in-between different lightning launcher setups, but I'm addicted to lightning as nothing comes close to it's level of awesomeness .... ! 🙂

No other launcher comes any close to this one in terms of customization and adjustability. 7 stars for this.

This is without a doubt the best launcher ever. I am very sad that I just found this now since f***in next launcher started acting up more and more. I hope that the dev at least keeps it running. I am a tinkerer and this launcher let's you customize EVERYTHING. It takes a bit fiddling until you get the hang of it but from that point on its pure awesomeness

My absolute favourite app on the Play Store and one of the main reasons I could never switch to Apple products. This is the first thing I download when I get a new phone, and one of the few which actually works. A recent UI update to the editor has made it so I can't figure out how to change the events on my app/folder icons, nor the icon style or text style or etc. Could you please let me know how or revisit that menu?

This app by far has the most options in regards of customization, such as nested folders, widgets in folders and much more. However, for all it has right, this launcher has also had a drought of updates, and when it does update, the app breaks even further, leaving this as a buggy mess. I sincerely hope to see this app prosper again.

Extremely customizable, really a launcher toolkit. I desperately want to use this because it does things no other launcher can but there are some shortcomings. The documentation wiki is incomplete, the Google+ user forum is about to disappear (has been relocated 😊), and the app has bugs on latest hardware and software. Hoping a new release improves things.

I have used Lightning Launcher for several years. It was fantastic. Unfortunately something has changed in the creation of new folders. When I select a new folder and place it on the desktop it is now transparent instead of black with a cross to separate the icons of apps inserted in the folder. When I am able to install the earlier type of folder I will award 5 stars.

After Android 9.0 update on an S8+....the default Phone app will not work. If I use Lightning...then I have a smartphone that can't make phone calls. DUH! Which is ridiculous! I have emailed this developer multiple times over the last 2 months....ZERO response back. I hope the HECK your read this Pierre and get off your butt and answer!!!!! Especially seeing that I'm a PAYING customer. This is inexcusable and NOT how you run a business!
