I really hate Android for a simple reason, it's a monopoly of Google, just as iOS is for Apple, they claim it's open source but it isn't, not real open source. A real open source mobile OS would be the likes of Jolla Sailfish and Ubuntu Touch. Can you change your engine search from Google to another one, with this launcher? mainly an open-source based one that doesn't track you, like Duckduckgo? Or at least Firefox? At least on my iPhone I can change the browser/search engine from Google to Duckduckgo, but with Android it's harder, with Google's own software it's almost impossible, they will force you to use Google, and then track your location and all your information as usual. I'm not stupid. But Android is still better than iOS and Apple which I completely despise

for all those of you who dont have the option of changing icon shape or missing option in the google pixel launcher, you have to enable "developer options" and then the setting just appears in the spot automatically... To enable developer options, go to Settings-->System-->About Phone, and tap on where it says the build number over and over until it tells you developer options are enabled. the change icon option then appears ..

The UI/UX and icon design still look old and dated. Having multiple icon design languages and styles on the same screen sucks. Installing a new app and then realising its icon is of a totally different style than the ones you have on your home screen sucks. Installing custom launchers and icon packs won't fix this, as no icon pack contains icons for all apps out there. I changed my phone a couple of weeks ago and could have gotten any phone currently on the market, but since I have OCD, I am horripilated by Android's UI and UX. It's sooo unfinished and fragmented. I really wanted to buy an Android phone, but just couldn't! I have used Android for a couple of years and I found myself constantly wanting to change icons, menus, lists, fonts, colours, etc. all day long, constantly installing all kinds of launchers, icon packs, everything - but just could not get the feeling of a solid UI with a solid UX that looks like it's part of a whole. And now I'm stuck with an iPhone and although there's almost no customization available, at least the OS looks like it's part of the same design language. And the icons as well. ...

First link doesnt work for me. Second one does but the "At A Glance" widget doesnt appear and there is an annoying white shade at the top and bottom of the screen. Also, is there a way to use icon packs with this or at least get rounded icons in this launcher?

Anyone else can't stop seeing the jelly effect on the op5?
Sathira Katugaha (2 months ago)
Saurabh Bahmani I'm pretty sure it's the 5 unless he uses both in the video. This one has more rounded corners like the 5 rather the more square shape of the 3t
Saurabh Bahmani (2 months ago)
Sathira Katugaha The phone used here is OP3T and not OP5. And that is not the jelly effect FYI.

Mihai Lazar (2 months ago)
J Ξ T L A G TSF launcher yes I have been using it since 2012 on my Galaxy S2 ... All the way to my Galaxy A3 and still use it on my LG G6 now I can't find a better one ... Once you get used to the non grid based layout you can't go back I just find it a LOT easier to reach all icons when placed in a roughly HEXAGONAL pattern because out fingers are just better at moving in circles naturally, and once you get used to the folders opening in a circle at the bottom half of the screen for maximum reachability and no need for pages in folders even if you have 16 apps inside It's just too convenient Now please note that this is not for everyone and if you don't know how to set it up properly you're going to have a horrible time but I do suggest you at least check it out (just don't judge by the play store photos ... They're really old ... Like really REALLY OLD )

The only thing that sucks about most launchers is that some native widgets don't work. I happen to like the native ones like the clock, calendar and a few others over the Google and 3rd party ones
