Reviews From google play store

Just started using it, very simple and smart UI but the only let down I've noticed so far for me atleast, is the search bar it doesn't respond very well leaving me to press repeatedly and even then the keyboard doesn't come up until you press it again. I have lots of apps and games so searching is a big deal for me anyway, but it would be ideal if when a user clicks on the search bar the keyboard then appears.


In new update the task bar not showing. When we use a wallpaper from our gallery... Plz fix it... No fix in new version.... Plz fix it...


Its great with many features like changing the font and different wallpapers and theme with a beautiful culture paint in the wallpapers and themes


After perchase with in a 3 month phone very slow working phone risponse is very slow... I am very satisfied this phone in purchase time bt after 2 month very bad responce...


Best launcher for infinix! Though I don't like that it forces us to use this launcher. Thanks.


Graphic design is nice. The daily quotes too are nice. It's sleek in usage..makes it feel good while using my device especially when scrolling through the menu or pictures or any other thing. Sometimes just feel like scrolling when I have nothing doing in particular. Lol. Update: After the last update, The daily quotes are gone. Now i have done another update, i hope it comes back.


Not encouraging at all XOS Launcher, why can your FONTS applications work on all applications like Whatsapp, Facebook, Messanger and so on.... Please work on it so we can enjoy XOS Launcher Please modify FONTS settings to work on all applications


Good app but need more functions like shutter icons doesn't change on themes,less widgets and screensavers.


Please improve the Camera when we take the picture its give no detail on face like blur and very poor photo fix this ! And portrait mod the picture is too much black and Dull ....no buty please fix this ..by give new update


I'm just head over heels right now for this app ever since I had the Infinix Note 4... this was the built-in launcher and maaaan... the graphics, features, themes, everything is just so super amazing. The quality is superb. This launcher makes my phones appear super expensive. Thank you to the developers. Kudos to you on a job well done.


I hate those instant games and instant app that keeps showing in my list of apps,even if you click on "hide instant apps" they still find their way there . And the 2nd thing why cant i remove the news from the "manage cards" like the other cards like whether and the rest? . Its like you guys want me to read every single stupid celebrity story about their fake lives on the internet and one thing it takes my data away i have more stuff to read for me to keep reading news .pls make it an option


Would have loved to give it a 5 but a particular thing I hate about it is that the badge counter stops at 99+ and it doesn't support all apps... For instance, doesn't support WhatsApp or Instagram, Twitter or other apps... It once did when I bought my device and I recall, but after an update(I guess) it stopped... The badge counter that stops at 99+ ain't cool at all... Would have loved giving a 5 star but I gat honest


Xos.... The best launcher ever! ......A very smooth and friendly interface......the font can be changed.... That alone is superb! Organized App & Settings!!!!..... ThankYou to the developers... It's awesome!!!!!! Keep improving!!!!! I believe there's more to come!


I think it will be nice to see developers respond to the complaints of people here. If not on all but at least on one or two that are most asked questions. Each update of this app is making the worae instead of inproving. First it was the font now the daily motivational wall paper. And it is making the launcher becoming more and more boring .


I once gave this a 5 star but now am taking it back. After series of updates my phone hangs alot and after a while it crashes with message popping up saying Xos launcher not responding. I dont enjoy my phone anymore ,i click on something it hangs and take time to open when it finally does it suddenly crashes then starting afresh again its becoming frustrating


XOS Launcher lacks lot of features.. 1. I can Use geasture by sliding up to all apps but i dnt have any geasture like slide down to home screen screen 2. We have a 5*5 destop icon grid but on drawer scren we dnt have option for an 5*5 icons Screen . 3.We can not customize icons..there should be an option where we can change icon shape like round sqare iphone style .and replce any apps icon from another icon pack.. If u guys solve it i will give you a 5


Hello sir, There is a difficultly to download application and the updated for the same... The network connection is stronger but the launcher do not support LA the downloading.. It takes sometimes a month to download or update the same.... Please look into it... Very disappointed 😞


This is obviously and clearly the best launcher for infinix... everything about it says a lot. I'm giving 4 stars though because it takes forever for you to release a system update for our devices... I see a lot of updates on the internet every now and then made by individuals or a private organization and sometimes I feel like trying them out because I personally don't wanna be left behind as far as system updates are concerned...so kindly provide frequent updates for devices.. great job anyway


The first time thay I used this launcher was a great exeprience, until the latest update I had with it. Everytime that I delete an app, a message will pop up saying, "XOS Launcher has stopped working", the I have to select the " Open App Again" button everytime it does appear. It's not that irritating but if it is broken, it needs fixing.


I just love it...i am using infinix smart 3 plus....this new update made my system 2 times faster...Everything is working with buttery smoothness. But after updatation daily quotes are not coming. so what i got a faster system so i have no complain...many many thanks to the developer team...you did great job. But everyone should remember,infinix smart 3 plus is not for heavy gaming...if u use it for that your phone will be always slow it does not matter whatever software update you do...


It's wonderful fabulous great unique I love it Everything is great, memory is also full, there is an option, click, empty, keep sending the wallpaper theme of your choice, always great, my mobile has become absolutely beautiful. Enjoyed for a long time. I was searching for a launcher then I thought why not Find the same launcher that has been used on the mobile launcher, found it in the play store, then when I used what to tell, my heart was really happy developer your best job


Fast, smart, battery is reliable. Camera is gud, i love dis phone tho the snap chat video shakes and its very annoying


Many glitches and small bug's I've encountered. Like there are few apps installed but it's not showing them in apps. Not even in search. And those are not in hide section. Plus many times it goes unresponsive at fingerlock and i try to tap my finger again and again to login. Kindly improve the quality and working of the app regarding multitasking and fix these issues. When i switch from one app to other like fb where I've written some comment and when i switch and comeback that comments gone.


Great app! but "hide app icon" on the menu doesn't give room anymore for anyone to hide apps. just a tap on it, gives exposure to the so-called hidden apps. please the developers should do something about this in the next update. Thanks. please include freezer in your launcher on non- infinix phones. keep up the good work. Thanks again


Thank you for such an amazing application. This app is exactly what I've been searching for for years. My phone is so much more organized and everything has it's niche. I appreciate your hard work! And to the person whose phone keeps hanging on them.....get a better phone!


Best launcher i have ever used. It is amazing. Has many cool features. And its easy to navigate through. Even has a hide apps options, for apps you dont want to be visible even in app search. Love it. 5 stars for sure.


Xos have XHide Which is a good application.Note3pro Zero5 has very good performance. In these models, it acts as a separate application itself. Other applications can also pictures videos and there is such a great hide system that it does not even show notification on on screen. For example, if you hide whatsapp, even when the internet is on, there is no call or notification. But there are also new mobiles such as HotS HotS3x Hot7pro S4 etc All of these mobiles have Nothing.


There is a problem arise that's I didn't receive the messages from block contacts..kindly give that option back.and there is something wrong that when you hold the screen the menu comes and when you tap on hide app it opens without password but when I use hide app with gesture to open it want password I want xos to fix this problem.


Bring back the fonts! I just updated the app and found out that fonts no longer work. I really need to change my fonts back to normal or I might just uninstall this app. It would just be a shame.


this is the only free launcher that has many features that others dont. its very different and its very unique. most people are copying this because its pretty neat. id suggest adding more features like, icon style in the store which you can download or buy. this launcher is just almost the definition of perfection.


hi! I am Qamar Hussain from Pakistan. I am using XOS launcher this is very good. but, his badges are not accessible with TalkBack. A blind person can't read how many notifications are in any app by touching on app icon. I suggest you please make accessible your number badges with TalkBack. This is very important. I am using infinix S4 please add this feature in next XOS launcher update. Thank you!


Hot 7 pro launcher has following three errors which needs to be updated 1. In lockscreen flashlight do not open 2. If flashlight is on, when you press power on button in lockscreen mode it become off 3. when anybody call you its do not override over other apps and you have to go back to attend calls


Themes are cool ...but the performance are not that smooth n stable..it would be much better if the notifi..toggle is customizable n additions to that ;add animated themes ...for instance miui third party themes it looks very cool ...n abt that ...umm 'sliding upwards for all app' that should be fixed ,it used to get stuck most of the times.....i hope with this ...features it would be the most stable launcher..


I am now using infinix hot 7 pro.. nd xos launcher is good. But two or three things have to be improved.. My request for the developer that please bring some more customization like change the navigation bar, options to change the status bar.. also some new Google, one plus theme.. that's it.


In this recent update, hide-app is visible alongside other home screen menu when one press & hold on the home screen, please remove this option from there. Hide-app option/menu/button should be hidden, it's better how one do locate it in the previous version. I'll give 5 star if you can work on this.


Excellent launcher. It work wery well and it has good themes and having hide apps and so many features are there


That is very nice and good launcher . When i bought my phone infinix smart 2 hd x609 so this launcher was already installed on my phone . But the problem is that it doesn't show icon badges i like icon badges but it cannot show . Plz fix it . Without 5th update it also don't show.


Sorry for editing the review . I really like the feature " hide app " on this launcher since this feature is removed from "xhide" . But after the update , there's a problem where we can easily see what's on "hide app" without even using password . Please fix it .. thanks ( nicely done !) .


No cheetah update for infinix zero 5? Still using old update. Phone hanging after the last update.


You guys are not trying even with the new update still yet your font is applying on all the apps, not even on what's app. please try to work on this or yet still meet infinix and get their authorization. I know you guys are doing a great job but please just do this for us. Thank you so the developers of xlauncher.


Hello, I noticed that since I updated my XOS last week, my phone Infinix hot 6 Pro has been overheating and hanging. I have been restarting the phone since then maybe it'll be better but it's not. What can I do because it has really slow down the efficiency of the phone.


XOS Launcher is cool, Smart and UI is excellent. I love it. Only that the font is not applying to the whole phone system. Work on it and bring in more nice bold fonts (e.g. POPPINS). I personally need Poppin font. Thank you. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


The launcher update comes with hide app icon which when tapped on the screen takes one directly to apps which one has intentionally hidden and encripted with a password.This hide app icon bypasses the password to enable an unauthorized person access the hidden app or apps on the phone which I think is unfortunate and suggest that something must be done to solve this issue.Apart from this issue I think the update is a good job done and deserves my four stars.


Literally ruined such a good launcher with this latest update. Hide app feature has been made so vulnerable that anyone can open it as it no more requires a pattern to open it. So, why am I hiding those apps if anyone can open them and see. Such a disappointment. There is an option to set pattern for hidden apps but what is it useful for when while opening any app, it does not require the pattern.


The latest version of xos launcher is not Working in my phone after I have update my phone.


The data speed icon is showing in between the screen which is disturbing for us. It is clicked while tapping some thing other options. It should be shown at top of the screen like Xiaomi mobiles beside the network and battery icons .


I love it, I'm so glad that my infinix hot 7 never have any system problem like my previous phones,due to the help of this app.But needs improvement . Try


Hate the shalltry passport thing. It pops up and stays on one side of the home screen until I have to click on it, which adds the zero screen and I have to go to theme settings to sort it out...EVERYDAY! Could you get rid of this needless occurrence please, cos this is otherwise an awesome launcher.


The update is nice, but font is not applicable to all app except that it writes the name of the apps in that font. But contact, messages, whatsapp etc are not affected by the font. This is should also be considered.


The app is great and cool, actually came preinstalled in my phone as default launcher. The only thing I'd like for the developer to fix is the apps view, you swipe up to view your apps but it would have been great if you could swipe back down to go back to your home screen


I have a problem downloading any font, theme or wall paper from the xtheme and it's not cool. Also, the daily quotes are gone. Where did they go? I wish you'd so something about it


Too many ads....and there is no uninstall button


The older versions had the badge number counter which was really nice but in the recent updates, they are no longer showing, just notification dots and it is disappointing. Please restore the badge numbers on the icons. Thanks.


I can't access "Fonts". Wheneve I click it, it just buffers and does not show anything,.. Other work fine, only the " Fonts" part...


The BEST launcher since I don't know when. What is so cool and unique are the 3 to 6 newest themes added every day and appear at the very top of the theme store page. I get a surprise daily. Beautiful and classy. Love the wallpapers and fonts. Its refreshing to finally have a great launcher app to enjoy again!


I used to love XOS and recommend it to my friends but then the font issue started. I can no longer download a new font for my Infinix X599c anymore. It will load till eternity. The only Font I have Is the default fonts. Please fix this. Please always work on updating new DIYs


Nice but at least the font should have been included in the pack rather than downloading it again after upgrades and most annoying is that is works only on the user interface, other apps dont have the effects of the font changed


Love it the theme, animation and got all requirements in one app but after using 5 hrs the smart charge stuck like when sliding to unlock it never response or gesture some time doesn't work and i also noticed my home screen is also not responding freely like the before it happens once, and the rest function is awesome.


A very good and awesome launcher; I really hard great experience using it, so smooth and fast in use.kudos to the developers, and also hope they keep bring more great and interesting features in it subsequent upgrades!!....


This is a great launcher but why can't I have the double tap option in the gesture menu to turn on and off the screen? It would be wonderful if this is included... This is why you are getting three stars


At first I wasn't sure if I want it but after ten minutes on the XOS Launcher(2019) I'm trilled. It even help me detect my charger was bad by telling me it will take one day and 18hrs for my battery to be fully charged


I dont want to give one star as well... What the hell you people are doing man... I am requesting from about year that please fix the fonts issue now u have put the fonts back in xtheme but same issue they are not applicable on the other apps just main screen only on the names of apps on the home screen. What the hell..... Serously


I am not totally happy with the theme esoecially the font theme, why is it that the font is not applicable to all the application like telegram, facebook etc. I hope there should be a font that will work in every part of the phone not only on the Xtheme only.


The best launcher I've ever used. It perform its best on infinix. I'm using Vernee V2 Pro now, it's not working as the same on infinix. E.g freezer is not working on vernee etc. Anyway, I love it. Put more effort to make it work for all smartphones 👏👏👏


I really love the launcher, i even do install it on phones which are not infinix, but what i hate about it now is that its not showing pictures behind my menu again for newer updates... And thats one of the reasons why i so much love it in the first place... Please fix this


For some reasons it just doesn't load font styles unlike theme and wallpaper. I hope this could be fixed, other than that its a nice app ill just like to change my phone's font from the 3 defaults.


This font issue why can't you guys fix this it's really wack..... We can only change the fonts of our home screen and app names ... The fonts don't even change on the phone completely . If not that it's a must to rate 1 star I wouldn't even give you guys 1 Star this is a bad issue


I love this app alot..i love how it makes my phone look so expensive..its so easy to read and understand the steps to follow when setting it..what I'm thrilled about the most is the wallpaper n theme it has😍


This Launcher will be the first Launcher I truly like. All of the other launchers I've tried, have sucked and didn't work properly. 5 out of 5.


It's great, but I'm having an issue. The fonts never load up, I can seem to be able to switch fonts cos I don't see any fonts on my list. Please fix this if it's some kind of bug.


Dont know why purchased infinix mobile after paying all money what i got was all adds please never buy infinix mobile in starting the phone was good but after 2,3months lot of adds and android updates made the phone worst ...the phone keeps on hanging sometimes when i called someone i have to restart the phone to talk just do not buy infinx if you thinking these infinix phones are cheap tobuy really these are too cheap


The font doesn't change in other apps and that's annoying. The font style only shows on the home screen and names of apps. Please you people should fix this so the font can be effected on other apps.


We need FONT STYLE to be part of the themes just like the old gold days. We don't want to installing another font apps, that doesn't even work well on phone. I mean what's the point of font style if it's only working on "surface" 🤷‍♀️


This is cool. Thanks for the new system. I have been battling to download font for my phone but didn't work for the phone until the new update for the luncher.


Why can't I download fonts after the upgrade, in the previous before the upgrade, I had a lot of font but after the upgrade just 3 fonts and I couldn't download more fonts, please fix this issue


Awesome features, I love it when you can switch folders quickly by swiping. Although half the files in my folders go missing every now and then and I have to keep adding them back over and over


Very very very very very very very very good launcher i use many launchers but it's my very nice experience


Am giving this new update a 2 star because it has some bugs that needs fixing. On the fomer update, i could hide my apps behind security but now i can no longer do that and my private/hidden apps can be accessed by everyone. Please this should be fixed


It's the best launcher i have used so far. Only if the ads can be cut a bit i expiriance so many ads that i do not even wish to see work on that please. Best launcher ever.


Every launcher has an option of hiding the 'most used apps ' coloumn whereas XOS launcher makes it compulsory to see most used apps which I really dont want to see. It is a sinscere request to allow users to remove most used apps options and then I would definitelt grant it 5 stars...


I install this Launcher on every new phone I buy, I love it. You won't regret installing it on your phone too. I never had any problems at all while using it.


Ooh yeah! The fact that i could change my font made me to rate this launcher. If there are other stars i could tap on, i wouldnt mind at all. I'm delighted! Sweet!!!


It's good but if you cld just add like a swipe down feature in app drawer to close its gonna be better coz evrytime I swipe up open my app drawer I have to press the back key to go to home screen.


It's so good to using XOS but now there is one thing that has to be considered or improved it brings a lot of notifications when the data is on even too much of applications for the XOS.


It's cool.. Have amazing features... And also looks good and nice on the phone... Buh sometimes crashes and have to be restarted.. This must be worked on as soon as possible best......................


Exquisitely,and marvelously i like the app ,really is working good for my infinix s4, but the boost must to work automaticaly if you delete some thing else, but anyway i appreciate it thanks and good experience to you with increasing idea for you all.


Its nice ... Now we have Fonts , But make it work in our chats ... Its only showing on names of apps .. After you open them .. I return back to the normal font .. So still lame to me


This app is awsome .Its very easy in terms of accessing your apps,scrolling through your apps too is very easy .What makes me enjoy this app the more is the fonts its comes with and the themes .In fact ,i really like this app


It's really good in terms of design and composition but there should be a little improvement on the speed I guess


This app is alright.. but the fact that the zero screen keeps mysteriously showing up after I turn it off is very annoying. Please fix urgently!


Thus app is great and interesting but you guys still need to work on this front so that it can really work not that it will only work on home display and app. You guys can do better.


Everything is okay with this app except: 1. No option to unhide an app 2. cannot lock accidental modifications:- every time I press the middle of the screen does not mean I want to modify the app settings.


The latest update allows people to access hidden apps without using password when you long press on home screen and click 'hide apps'. This happens even when password is enabled. Please rectify this issue.


Experience with the XOS Launcher (using S4) has been super amazing. No need to look for other launchers as it serves its purpose.


In latest update, when I tap and hold in display, it shows launcher's home menu. From there, when I click "Hide apps" it goes directly hidden app section without asking pattern when I enabled pattern for "Hide apps". Why it happens?


I am. Wondering why the app updates keep making the launcher worse. Widgets don't work... No background pictures. It keeps hanging. Please fix it. It was working way better before. Thanks.


The daily quotes/wallppaper that appears on the A-Z menu just stopped working all of a sudden. Its saddening. I also cant edit my my music to play as a ringtone else it won't show on the ringtones list.


It's awesome. Just improve on response when someone clicks s program. Sometimes it takes a bit of time to open up. Increase on ram


I can't review my font styles and choose one again, it keeps writing no network access and I have enough data, I just don't know why.


Fast, good software but some improvements in pre-installed Apps are required like weather condition app, keyboard writing mistakes especially in Urdu.....
