    Had it on my lg phone now i have a Samsung so we will see if it holds those 4 stars or not. To those that agree thinking of switching just don't unless you want to relearn a phone because they are different. I will say the a 20 feels better then the stylo 4. I was going to get a 5 but nikki inner had them in stock and i had the just 4 and this one had better specs. Only downfall is it only goes to 720 but with the aspect ratio you don't even notice. Sorry for the rant.

  2. Dee Maison-avatar

    Please help Thank you for this amazing app. I have been using without issue for a long time, until recently. Phone S9+ OS: Android 10 Recently after the Android 10 upgrade, the home screen looses all of its icons. I can get to the app by scrolling up. It eventually comes back, and I have yet to figure out what triggers this. I am ready to wipe and reload, but without a backup and restore feature for your beautiful launcher the prospect is daunting. Thank you again in advance for any help

  3. AJ Argie-avatar

    I switched from an Original Pixel XL to a Note 9. I loved the way Google Layed out their Home Screen and UI functionality compared to Samsung. This Launcher gave me all that back and after a year of using it I love it! I really have only one complaint at the moment. I've been using Dark Theme since it's released on Android 10 but when ever I scroll to the left the Google News/Search is bright white because of this Launcher. Devs please look into adding in a small update to allow dark mode!

  4. Jerry Cerkez-avatar

    Works great! I really missed this launcher. I've been having nothing but problems recently. The navigation bar and home screen go blank and I have to restart to get them back, this still remained a problem after factory reset

  5. pavan Vajra-avatar

    Yet this is the best app I have seen but the google search bar can be made smaller in size and just to keep the logo in the sides of home screen, if we just press the G logo the search engine should start, as this is my suggestion.

  6. Dave Logan-avatar

    One major issue, one smaller issue. Major issue is you can't folder apps in the up swipe (please change this ASAP). Other issue would be to add the pixelbridge into one app. The only reason I wanted this was for the google news feed

  7. Angelia Gayle-avatar

    Very smooth. Although I can feel the low resolution, it helps to use my phone efficiently and it makes me feel the speed of a pixel phone, very clean and organized. Would recommend if you feel like your android phone is clogged.

  8. Michael Jay Castillo-avatar

    Michael Jay Castillo


    i love this launcher, simple, smooth, lightweight. However whenever I reboot my phone, the resolution of the wallpaper decreases so i need to reset the wallpaper again to fix the resolution issue. Please fix this. Thanks

  9. Mike Lee-avatar

    Installed on my Galaxy s10e. I keep two phones, one personal, one work. My other phone is a Pixel 3xl. I REALLY love having standardized experience between the two and this almost gets me there. The only thing missing for me is the single button navigation where I can use the middle button to navigate between apps and swipe on the right side of the screen to go back. That's been a tough one to live with, but hopefully, we'll see that in future updates. Thank you so much for your work on this!

  10. MOHIT-avatar

    there are some minor issue in this launcher. i am unable to open launcher settings by tapping on screen. and why there is need pixel bridge for google feed. plz resolve it fast. i like your work more and i know you can do it. and hope will do soon. 😊😊😊😊.

  11. Fabio Kinolli-avatar

    Pretty nice experience overall, would like some degree of cusomtizabiliy when it comes to the home screen, more than just which Icon pack to use. Couldn't figure out how to switch my default home screen.

  12. Baivab Jena-avatar

    Only need gesture support now so that I can double tap on the home screen to lock device or launch an app of my choice. I feel that is a necessary feature. Everything else is top notch.

  13. Bayu Chandra Sukma-avatar

    Bayu Chandra Sukma


    One of the most lightweight and easy to use launcher. Only refrained from using it since one of my Apps recognize everything with "Root" as a cheating programs.

  14. Rubina Bano-avatar

    Weather is missing in 'At a Glance' Please improve 'At a Glance' Weather information is needed. Plus I had to manually download pixel bridge app for google feeds on left. A link should be provided or it should be a part of app.

  15. Michael S-avatar

    Great imitation launcher! One thing that's frustrating is trying to group icons into folders. It keeps moving the icon instead of grouping into a folder until dozens of tries. I keep hoping the icon grouping would be fixed but it never does. I spend 5+ minutes trying to just drag an icon onto another but all it wants to do is push the other icon out of the way. Rather frustrating.

  16. Ray VM-avatar

    By far the best! Works flawlessly and gives that final stock android theme to my phone. Just add the 'pixelbridge.apk' to get the Google app working and it's now perfect. Cheers Update: Just noticed there is no 'Clear all' to close all your open apps at once. Be great if that could be added 👍🏼

    Hello. I had problems with Huawei Honor 20 on MagicUI 3.0 at Android 10. A connection with Google app doesn't work, can't be possible to change shape of icons, at Glance feature doesn't work (it doesn't refresh) and it doesn't work correctly with dark mode (all light). It is good app, but it seems that there are a lot of problems at Android 10. Thx.

  18. josesy-_- boi-avatar

    Very smooth and has a little extra features that the regular pixel launcher does not have. I uninstalled my pre-installed launcher for this app. There is one major issue however. When swiping right for the Google Feed page, it lags horrendously. especially when scrolling through feed. My device is the Huawei P20 Lite, ANE-LX2

  19. Evan Bergan-avatar

    I would really love to see a tiny bit more customizability in this app. I just upgraded from a 16x9 phone to an ultrawide one and the app dock has a weird spacing issue where the icons feel very far away from the search bar, and the app drawer arrow feels far away from the dock. I'd love to see an update to address this or a slider to let the user define the spacing. Otherwise amazing app!!

    It was awesome. Its a shame that is crashing on Android 10. We gonna have to wait for the developer to update it. Until there I am going with CPL.

  21. 00Swifty00-avatar

    Used to work well but after android update the all the icons on home/other pages dissappear randomly and the Google feed that is on the left page does not appear

  22. Paul A C-avatar

    Decent launcher, a few gripes. 1. Unable to show weather on at a glance. 2. Unable to resize icons 3. Unable to allow more than 5 icons in the dock or change columns or rows in dock or desktop. 4. Not fully themeable. All the above is quite achievable, fix this and five stars is yours




    I am facing some problems for few days that whatever I have installed the app failed to launch it in app drawer and home screen also...

  24. J T-avatar

    Great app, immensely better than Samsung's attempt... but, any chance you could loose the google search bar at the bottom or make it optional?

  25. Paul Atherton-avatar

    I like the simplicity and clean layout, but a few bugs related to widget operation. One example is BBC weather widget taping the widget supposed to launch app but does nothing. Same with business calendar Pro widgets. Hoping the dev can fix this then will give 5* review

    I am in love with this launchers interface. Best one ive ever installed. I hate looking at a cluttered phone screen abd, this solves that problem.

  27. M. Wiguna Saputra-avatar

    M. Wiguna Saputra


    Almost cool, but this launcher can't separate dual apps icon on MIUI, when you click the original app icon that will show optional icon for parallel version. It's annoying, wasting time. The icon should be separated and be able accessed directly like default launcher.

  28. bd504840-avatar

    Using this on a Samsung S9. It worked great until the Android 10 update. Since the update, the main functions of the launcher still work but the icons don't change from system default and sometimes the textual names of the icons disappear.

  29. D3ATHMORE-avatar

    Just do it. Before I had the slow Samsung home screen and it was so slow it shuttered and lagged but this is quick elegant and easy to use

  30. Katie-avatar

    This app is great! But it needs an update. After the system update my icons no longer show circle even though in the settings I have circle selected. Also the notification Icons dont show at the top of my screen unless I pull down the notification bar

  31. Johannes Venezian-avatar

    Johannes Venezian


    Very good launcher, but needs to be updated to the new gestures used in Android 10, with which it is currently incompatible. App drawer shouldn't open when swiping up from the very bottom edge of the screen.

  32. Vanessa Riley-avatar

    Followed the instructions in the description and it works flawlessly. Put this on my spare/gaming phone, LG G6, to mimick my Pixel 2 XL.

  33. A Google user-avatar

    Decent enough launcher. Two things would be worth at least one more star: ability to backup and restore settings (a bonus would be importing from other launchers) and remembering the scrolling position in the app list. Need to make it as painless as possible for people to move from one launcher to another, not to mention from device to device. To me, there's nothing at the moment to really set it apart from other launchers.

  34. Yoan Karaivanov-avatar

    The launcher is great. I've been using it ever since it came out and I've had zero problems with it... Until a few days ago. The weather icon and temperature from the homescreen are missing. I haven't changed anything, my location is aleays on, but they disappeared two days ago. I can check the weather in Google Feed, but I was used to seeing it on my screen right away and using it as a shortcut. Hope this gets fixed!

  35. Alessandra LP-avatar

    So I have a problem: I installed the bridges and all, but when I tap on the weather thing on "at a glance" it can take up to 5 seconds to load up the weather app, which is quite annoying. This was on a Samsung S10

  36. A Google user-avatar

    This app is very close to the stock pixel launcher. There are just a few issues I have. First, the "dark" theme seems to be the same as the transparent. Second, "display Google app" gives "the bridge to connect..." error. Lastly, the "widget" built in on the top links to the calendar appropriately, but does not display the weather. Also, it isn't removable. Awesome job overall imo. Address the "issues" above and definitely worth 5 stars.

  37. Mark Rodgerson-avatar

    Hands down the best launcher period! Clean simple and fast, highly recommend. Would love to see a premium version with a few more features like layout backup\restore and ability to hide icons in the app drawer. Keep up the great work.

  38. Omen Boy-avatar

    A bad choice because the icon shape settings don't adjust non-adaptive icons. The same developer has an excellent new launcher Shade launcher!

  39. Jordan York-avatar

    I have been using this as my main launcher since early on in development and i am a huge fan. For some reason, switching between pages on my Galaxy S10 stutters if I leave it alone (on the home screen) for 6 or more seconds before swiping the page. Once the stutter happens, i can smoothly swipe between pages again until i let it sit for a little. This seems really odd to me, and i have done a lot to troubleshoot with no luck. If i figure out the solution, I'll let you know! Thanks for this app!

  40. Kenny Khamly-avatar

    Great work! Was looking for a standard and light launcher, this popped up. It doesn't have all the bells and whistle that some of the bigger launcher has but it doesn't need it. It is a launcher that is simple for anyone who wants the standard look. With the bridge companion, it is spot on! The At Glance feature does have moments when it doesn't seem to connect. Normally this can be triggered again by putting At Glance widget on homepage. But great effort!

  41. A Google user-avatar

    Overall great, but when it glitches, it's annoying! Like I can't access Settings and Widgets page, when I press and hold a blank portion of the home screen. It does not work sometimes even after restart. Also, when that happens, the notification dots are also compromised, showing up on icons despite not having any notifications, also, when that happens, I cannot access the notification shortcuts when I press and hold on the respective app icon. All of this happen altogether… occasionally

  42. Freddie Lo-avatar

    Everything looks great. Just one thing that is a little off: adding new app to a folder on home screen is way too hard. I mean the folder is too "slippery", before I drag and reach the folder, the folder already wants to slide away and therefore create a cascading slipping with the other apps on the page. Also, even if the fold didn't slide away, and the app I wanted to add is right above the folder icon, And even the folder icon responsed by enlarging, which typically means the folder knows that a new app is wanted to be added to the folder, when I release my finger, the folder just won't accept the new app and slide away. My only success in adding apps to a folder is mostly by a abnormally fast speed to reach the folder when dragging the new app. If you want prove I can sent a screen recording to u. I think this is a bug as I don't remember my old pixel xl behaving like this before I "upgrade" to the oneplus 6t I now use. Thanks

  43. Adrian Kerry-avatar

    Looks fantastic and has made my Galaxy Tab S6 look like my old Nexus portrait. The landscape orientation drops the google search bar (which is annoying for a tablet that I used in landscape more than portrait).

  44. Kishore Ravisankar-avatar

    Kishore Ravisankar


    Thanks a lot for this update. I was waiting for the weather bug to be fixed. However exactly after the update, I have lost the ability to see Google doodles in the feed, and customise the search bar. Please fix this. Update: I'm also unable to use the At a Glance settings. Not happy with the developer response regarding the Google feed.

  45. Allen Soberanes-avatar

    Allen Soberanes


    This app is perfect and you're a great developer! Thanks so much for creating the best launcher out there for free! I only had one complaint: sometimes if I'm off the homepage for a long time, once i press home, it takes a couple of seconds to load everything, so I'm suck on the homepage for a while. Idk if that's the app's fault or if my phone has garbage memory. What do you think?

    Updated to Android 10 (OnePlus 7 pro). Weather doesn't show in "at a glance". Reinstalled bridge. Restarted. Display Google app on/off. Feed is there. Seems like it's broken

    Was the best launcher on the Play Store for anyone looking for stock Pixel Launcher functionality. Now Lawnchair 2 is the best.

  49. Ryan Parrish-avatar

    Everything works great! I've been using this app since it's inception on GitHub. I had an issue with the at a glance not showing the weather, and the Developer replied to my comment quickly. It ended up being even simpler than his suggested fix. Thanks for the rapid response. I didn't have the bridge app installed, after I installed it, everything worked perfectly!

    You will understand the concept of the Google Pixel's launcher (home screen), but when I swipe up to see all of the apps, I experience the slowdown between the transition animation about the home screen and the app drawer. Please optimize the performance of the app for older devices. Also, this Pixel launcher is nearly perfect because it has a similar look between the actual Pixel launcher and this launcher. I mean by "Pixel" the latest Pixel XL or later.

  51. TA Music-avatar

    This is a very good launcher, and I only have two conplaints. Firstly, when you chage the theme of the homescreen, it deletes all the homescreens that you are not currently on. This is very disappointing as I spend a lot of time figuring out my homescreen layout. Secondly, when you tap on the google widget on the bottom of the screen, the animation is not smooth going into the search. This is more minor, but I would be grateful if it were solved. This is very good otherwise; I highly recommend it

  52. EskeRahn-avatar

    In contrast to many others landscape is supported, but rather poorly, stretching the grid. Landscape is crucial to me. Otherwise nice and simple.

  53. Aaron Simmons-avatar

    Recently there seems to be an incompatibility with the Google App/Feed. Then you try to enable the "Display Google App" the error, "Rootless Pixel Bridge - The bridge to connect or the Google Feed could not be found, or needs to be updated.": This now leave this app undesirable and because of this, I have to rate it a 2. I couldn't find "Pixel Bridge" on the Play store so I ended up going to the github site and sideloading it from there. Got it installed and it's working but not a smooth transition from 3.8.3 which included the bridge.

  54. XxFaisalgamerxX-avatar



    Hi, i have been using your Rootless launcher for some time and it's really good, the only problem is that when I'm using system default icons, it doesn't show the system icons but for some reason it shows some other icons, but on some other launchers it works so I think it's a problem with the launcher itself and not MIUI and adaptive icons don't work, I use Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 please fix this. Thank you.

  55. Aurius Ananda-avatar

    One big feature that is missing from original google launcher is that long pressing an app would open a menu with various startup options. For example i was able to open chrome in incognito mode directly etv - now i can't. EDIT: fixed. One more thing - switching to dark theme does not make google now page dark although it does on my mothers phone. Why? Android 7 vs 8? EDIT2: Weather keeps disappearing for some reason. Comes back after restarting phone and next morning it's missing again. Everyday. :)

    When I first installed this app I had a Launcher 2 version I used but when it installed it uninstalled ot and applied itself. I got really mad for the fact and I was used to a 4 row grid. I got used to it and everything went fine until the Google app on the left stopped opening. I tried turning the feature off and on in settings, restarting my device, but nothing helped. please find a solution to this...

  57. Lindsey Malkiewicz-avatar

    The most recent update has impacted the Google Feed. There are times it will not display at all, and when it does, dark mode seems to be broken and most articles are displaying a white lightning bolt icon. I am still able to tap on them and open the article, so it seems to be more visually broken than operationally, aside from the somewhat common failure to load. Both app and Pixel Bridge are updated to the most recent versions. Edit: Fixed! Not sure how, but everything is working great again.

    Wow amazing launcher. I'm a big fan of stock android. I'm using it on my poco f1. But I face some problems like on landscape more the home screen rotates but does not support the Notch. I thing it just support 18:9 screen but not a deal breaker. But just work on it. Yeah also faced another problem the stock days and weather widget is not availabke in widget and also cannot be moved.

  59. Anthas Roomi-avatar

    Always the best is the worst. Please note the Launcher is not showing cut and paste option and even seletion as well olease fix it otherwise its a well fine apo

    It worked perfectly in my Galaxy S7 edge. But in my S10 plus 'Google Now' feed is not showing. Also weather is not showing in 'at a glance'. In home settings "Display Google app" is not working. Is shows a message "the bridge to connect google app could not be found, or needs to be updated". Please solve this issue. Sometimes while scrolling though home screen a stutter can be found. I this this app needs some update for Android pie users or One UI users.

  61. Gerry Ricarte-avatar

    Why does the At A Glance and app labels are not turning into black colored fonts like it was shown in the screenshots, also I tried to make an event on a Google Calender but it seems not to appear on At A Glance widget as an upcoming event, lastly the Google Feed at the left side feature seems to be a little buggy as its not stable for me, I can't access it from time to time and I need to re-toggle it from the settings to make it functional again, please fix those bugs, I loved this app but it's inconsistency killed this off. Thank You.

  62. lukman mustafa-avatar

    Nice UI, clean and smooth. However I can't seem to use my google feed? Can anyone help? It says the bridge to connect cannot be found

    Very very great... But I cannot enable "display google app"... It says "The bridge to connect to the Google Feed could not be found, or needs to be updated"... My device is Redmi Note 5, Miui10 Android Oreo... I'll give 5 stars if you solve this problem... Thanks... *update: I just read the description in playstore... And now I able to enable google app... Thanks...

    Great app but not having the ability to have the mic button or assistant button on the static google search bar makes searching google a two click process that is annoying. Now the new pixel launcher has the assistant button on the far right to make launching searches, etc easier and other launchers (Nova) allow you to choose the old Google voice search or assistant on the search bar for quicker access. Why has this app not gotten an update? But otherwise this is a fast and easy to use launcher with low ram usage.

  66. Jack F-avatar

    Brilliant - no ads and once you install the pixel bridge apk from the description there's even the google news feed! Works flawlessly, and there's a much appreciated grey/dark mode too! A black theme suited to OLED displays would be much appreciated, but other than that I'm very happy with this launcher - I can't stand the Samsung default! EDIT: Jusy realised the weather shortcut on the "at a glance" widget isn't working anymore, and as such I've knocked a star off. It's brilliant otherwise!

    I've been using this app as my main and only launcher for quite a while, with much satisfaction. However, for a few days now I've not been able to use the "at a glance" feature correctly. That feature still shows my appointments and the current weather correctly, and clicking on the date opens my calender correctly, but clicking on the weather icon now gives an "app isn't installed" error. I have the bride installed, and no other launchers installed. Any idea what is going on?

    Edit and reply to developer: I mean the Samsung system feature, which can duplicate the social apps like whatsapp or telegram, it isn't an app which you can download from google play, it is a Samsung system app Original message: The Launcher seems ok, but with galaxy note 8, appear every 5 minutes a notification from dual messenger which ask to set a new icon in the home screen, if I tap on it, the phone go in freeze, but if O delete it, it will come again and again and again every 5 minutes

  69. Aaron Osteen-avatar

    I love this launcher. Its minimalist design makes it perfect for people like me. I installed the Pixel Bridge update and it fixed the at a glance screen and the weather info, the latter being a little slow. My only problem now is like that of others; the search feature is in dark mode, which is annoying. Once that's fixed, this will still be my favorite launcher!

  70. Mayank Thakur-avatar

    I have tried all Android q launchers. But nothing comes close to this in efficiency and lightness. Have just one request, Please update it regularly. Less smooth when swiping left to Google app

    I have been using it for a few days, really starting to like it. My only comment is about the At Glance feature, it's not showing the weather, only day and date. Anyway it's a very good launcher, Keep up the good work! EDIT: At a Glance now working, all you have to do is reboot your phone after installing the bridge. Thanks!

  72. Mark Student-avatar

    This is a nice and minimal take on the Pixel Launcher. Coming from a Pixel to a new phone, this makes me feel at home. Runs flawlessly and the theme options are a nice touch. My only complaints are that the added custom options aren't done yet. For example: I can choose a custom icon pack, but I can't change the app's icon to one of the alternative icons for that specific app (sometimes the alternative icons for apps are preferred, that's why they're there). I can hide an app in the app drawer, but ONLY if I have an icon pack applied. I can change the shape of the adaptive icons, but I can't remove the shapes altogether. These are great starts, but these few things make the app feel incomplete. I understand and prefer this minimalist approach, but adding these last few options won't take away from that, seeing as these features are already halfway there.

  73. Crimson Titan-avatar

    At a glance not fully working on Note 9. Will only show date and day. I have the latest version and the bridge installed. The Google now on left works fine but at a glance will not show weather or commute info. If you uninstall the Google app updates weather will come back but then never update and vanish again as soon as you update the Google app. Will improve rating if this is fixed or the issue is found. Weather toggle is enabled in Google app. Still not working.

    Oh man how good, simple, small yet featuristic it is. One thing i want to mention is that when you scroll through app drawer it will increase the icon's size which is first of that alphabet. Maybe it's a feature of stock launcher, i don't know as i use miui. This launcher also gives option to see app's details which is not given by miui launcher, such a simple feature which was given in my older jellybean device. Otherwise miui launcher is very featuristic(as deleting multiple apps simultaneously please include this feature Amir if possible), just without this small feature. BTW if you are searching for a simple stock launcher, this is definitely for you. Developer is a trusted XDA developer. Lawnchair is very laggy & pie launcher is only different for its full screen display gestures which is useful but interferes when typing & when accessing quick ball in miui, & given its bigger size i preferred this one.

    Update: Everything works now! Great launcher, have been using it for a long time now. It's simple, clean, looks good, and easy to add some customization to without anything looking outrageous. Only complaint is a recent one. Cant click on weather icon in "at a glance" to get to the weather page. Easy enough to just put a shortcut right below it so its no big deal. But was wondering if there is a way to fix this? I installed the latest pixel bridge, but still not working. Let me know!

    Finally a Launcher without "Full Network Access"!!! No launcher needs this, or to collect data. I hate all the largely used launchers have so many permissions! Luckily, I found this launcher and it only has what it necessary. NOW, this does come with some down sides. Example: can't get rid of google bar at the bottom (I don't use it ever), would like option to hide it. Also, can not increase icon column or rows, we're stuck with 5x5. Don't really like that with a large smartphone screen. Other than that this launcher is the way to go for security purposes! Have fun.

    When going into "Home Settings" you are able to change the theme, but it does not work properly. When setting the theme to default, and if you change to dark mode on the phone it does not get toggled for the launcher or discover feed.

    News feed doesnt work after update. Edit- 5*. Works great

    Looks good overall but my biggest issue is with the ability to add apps to a folder on the home screen. Instead of having an add button where u can select all the apps you want in that folder, you have a drag and drop each one. Very time consuming. Fix that and I'll use the launcher and give a better rating.

    My favorite launcher. Very minimalist, fastest, most stable, and allows for a good deal of customization. My only wish is to add the app "edit" menu from CPL, particularly the option to change a particular app's icon (if you don't like the icon pack version and don't want to remove the entire icon pack). How the app shortcuts use the app's color for their background is also very beautiful, and something I'd like to see here. Also, the multitude of on-click options on the On Glance widget.

    This app is the closest thing to the stock Google launcher available for non Google devices on the Play Store. The "Now Feed" feature is a hit and miss on my device (Huawei P20 Lite) but it works very well on my wife's device (Xiaomi Note 5). I cannot seem to figure out how to unhide apps from the app drawer, please help. If possible, please add alternative variants of the search bar and the ability to change individual icons. Your app is excellent. Keep up the good.

    Excellent, great job dear Amir. Loves from Iran. But I have an issue with the theme color choosing; although I select the dark theme, the theme is light yet, in the notification area only! It seems the automatic theme select is always on the priority. I must note that my background is somewhat light, but the purpose of these options u provided there, is to giving us the power of selecting freely what we want, isn't it? A million tnx ;-)

  83. Master Blaster-avatar

    My favorite launcher as I'm not into tons of mindless "bells and whistles". This one is super clean, simple and allows rotation of home screen. But for some reason my Weather Bug widget won't work and upload info to it in this launcher. Also, I prefer the Google search bar at bottom as it is but it would be nice to have the option to eliminate it as that's exactly what I would do, lol.

  84. James Oliver-avatar

    very good app works great apart from the at a glance not allowing preference to be made, like other people have said... i just turned at a glance off & used the Google at a glance widget instead working well. i really like the dark theam when interacting with Google search bar, shame the feed is still white. i suppose we will have to wait for Google to flick the server side load for this to happen ? . would it be possible to add gesture so i can double tap screen to view notifications shade ?

  85. Robert Martin-avatar

    I would give this launcher 5 stars, except I can't get folders to work. When I drag one app over another, the background lights up, but when I drop the app they just bounce apart. Otherwise this is the best launcher out of 100 that I have installed and tested. Simple, compact, solid. *Edit* Back to looking for a launcher. The folder creation problem is just too annoying.

  86. Cole L-avatar

    I wish there was a slider for icon and font size. Icons are a little small and font is way too big

  87. Noosey-avatar

    Great, however the Google feed option is broken, because I know for a fact on other launchers it will let me swipe left and I went in settings to turn it on and it said a error. And also the weather doesn't show on the widget. There should be an option in the settings where you can tweak the widget. Other than that great app.

    I have been using also older version not on play store and was very happy. Play store version on Galaxy S9 does not show weather on "at a glance". Pixel bridge and Google feed is enabled, Pixel launcher is set as default. Is there a solution? EDIT: It just appeared on its own. 5 start for me now!

  89. A Google user-avatar

    Excellent Launcher, giving us the perfect solution for non stock Android users. Please add option to hide apps from Launcher/app drawer. I have a Samsung Galaxy S9+, i pretty much use everything "apps" from Google instead of those from samsung. I even use their Phone & Contacts App. The only problem is i can't disable their Phone, Contacts, Calendar & Clock app. It would be so good if i can completely hide those from app drawer

    display google app to the left of the main home screnn not working after this update... please fix it soon.. after updating to v3 only not working... last update v3.9.1 ... i have tried to enable but it is saying that, The bridge to connect to the google feed couldn't be found , or needs to be updated... yes, give ur e mail id, ill send you the screeb shots..... sorry , its working after installing pixel bridge, thanks a lot and sorry for the inconvenience...

  91. A Google user-avatar

    Launcher is pretty good and simple. Following are a few enhancements that dev team can perform. 1. Add the functionality to add custom icon if icon pack doesnt have the one. 2. Add the feature to rename the apps. 3. Give the option to enable/disable bottom located google search bar. 4. Option to change the size of icons and grids on home and app drawer screens.

  92. Gary Dignam-avatar

    after updating the launcher and pixel bridge (V3) the at a glance widget no longer works correctly. when i tap on date that takes me to my calendar, but the weather part does nothing. it updates (when i refresh the google app for the weather) but i cant see the weather chart and the frog no more.wiped the google app(and deleted the app and reinstalled it and rebooted the phone) but still the same. UPDATE... as a workaround, i used the widget from the app widgets, and that one works.

  93. chindenine-avatar

    Love this app and the developer (; honestly he's been working on this app for a long time through GitHub and it has always been open source and free. Cool that it's now on Google Play, very smooth and optimized launcher, makes everything much more fluid on my S9. Many thanks to the developer, highly recommended!

  94. Fauzaan Ahamed-avatar

    problem with home screen disappearing, the second home page keeps disappearing on my OnePlus 6 and that makes this launcher unusable, setting up the second homepage takes a long time but it does return when i uninstall and reinstall the app, Also, once you fix that, can you introduce a true dark mode, that would be really useful, other than those, this launcher is the best

  95. German Sanchez-avatar

    The Theme setting is broken after upgrading to Android 10, the Google feed remains light. Only works if I turn on the phone dark mode/night mode. Seems to only be functioning in the setting tied to system theme.

  96. Jesse James-avatar

    This is an excellent launcher! You get a Google Pixel style launcher with the added benefit of dark and light themes, and the ability to apply icon packs. I'm running a Moto G6 Play with a near stock version of Android 8.0. This launcher makes it feel a lot closer to the experience you get using a Google Pixel.

  97. Alex Arnan-avatar

    it looks really clean but still buggy specifically with the at a glance feature, u can't access the weather, u can see it but u cant click it(or touch it) when you also hold then select preferences it doesn't do anything, I am also experiencing lag with just scrolling my home screen, but i think this is the best alternative for all the pixel launcher out there because of the simplicity IMO

  98. Hritesh Mallik-avatar

    It's a great launcher that and I've used it for more than a week. Just three things, 1. when i have a white wallpaper the Google search bar does not turn black even when ive have set the theme to automatic. 2. the app drawer needs some polishing, it looks a little old school 3. We need those customisations where i could set the icon's size, its font colour and size, etc. i hope im getting through and all this will get added soon.

    I like this launcher far better than the standard Samsung launcher, and even the direct ports of the Pixel launcher that I used before. My only complaint is that I can't click on the temperature in At A Glance and be taken to the weather information, I miss the weather frog! I just get a popup saying "App isn't installed." Otherwise, Im happy to have normal looking icons, and more dark mode settings. Keep up the good work! Update: The weather frog is back!

  100. Josh N-avatar

    Thank you! This is perfect to replace my Google now launcher. I love how you have added icon pack support and the ability to Hide uninstallable apps. if there is one feature I desire is the ability to organize my drawer. to be able to place apps into a collapsible category (exp game,work, and system) and then arrange the categories from the top to bottom of my drawer. PLEASE make my dream a reality! well beauty is simplicity, organization is Godly.
