Nova launcher

Well because we do not like or because we are tired of our custom launcher mobile, sometimes is good to opt for using a customization layer as offered Nova Launcher . It is certainly one of the most customizable you can find in the Play Store.

default theme is the interface Nova Launcher Vanilla typical Google Nexus phones. However, you can use a lot of custom themes, and also there are many options settings as transitions, icons, gesture control …

ADW Launcher

Formerly one of the most used Launchers Smartphones Gigerbread , was updated to have a more modern interface, more similar to the Stock Android.

Go Launcher

For quite I used time Go Launcher on my end. I must say that I liked many of the options bringing this Launcher . Simple to use, but extremely configurable . It also has its own store of themes, icons, and custom widgets so with this Launcher your smartphone or tablet can be different every day.

By putting a downside to this Launcher, l have many customization options and if you like installing and testing, it is certain that your device will end full of small applications, but not necessary . It is clear that not everyone needs the same features and, of course, is fine to have much choice, but between weather widgets, control, cleaning, themes, keyboards and so on, have your phone set will cost about 10 applications installed as little, which is enough for a single Launcher.

is available for free on a very full version and also a paid version that costs 4.56 euros, pretty face and with very few new options (is best considered as a grant application).

Action Launcher

The Smartphones most of which we have spoken above are quite similar, however, Action Launcher , despite having a native interface with Vanilla Android if it offers something different , with a sidebar from which applications can access directly from the desktop, give it up. You can also access this menu from other parts of the device, such as adjusting or messages by moving your finger around the rim (although the activated form can be changed in the settings).

In the drop-down applications are sorted by alphabetical order , can click on a letter for easy access to an application that is very low (Whatsapp, without going further), and of course, Action Launcher allows configuration settings , though not as extensive as Nova or Apex, for example. Also, if price is a little high for what it offers, 3.19 euros . Application on Google Play

Chameleon Launcher

If all previous Launchers seemed quite enter if this does not happen with Chameleon . This is a Launcher to try, and actually gets, transform your device . For starters, on the desktop, we’ll only find widgets, or icons, or folders, only Widgets . The application itself incorporates some very interesting as the climate or profiling.

Although initially could not add Android Widgets own in the second version of this device was launched, if it add is allowed. For applications, accessed from the menu button on the bottom. The downside of this is in the Launcher 2.25 euros for the mobile version, and 3.12 euros tablet version . Priced a bit high . Application on Google Play

Atom Launcher

Atom Launcher is at the same time, similar to previous different because it provides some interesting extras . For starters, the interface allows you to change themes, multiple desktops exist customizable mobile docks and widgets themselves. However, and unlike the rest, can apply transparencies and filters, increase the size of folder (the icons within the new size will be adjusted to show, and you can even slide between them without opening), and added a menu that unfolds to hold the application drawer button.

Also, this Launcher is free and has a pretty slick minimalist style. The downside is that it has less than others Launcher configurable settings that are also free.

Buzz launcher

At first glance, Buzz Launcher looks like a Launcher like others, themes, menus, boxes of applications and settings, however, the main attraction, which is also what they are unlike the rest, is that to share your desktop, as if it were a social network . Thus, we have access to tips and user reviews to configure your desktop in a way that we be as helpful as possible.

Of course, we can download or na configuration of a Launcher that we liked and, if we have some of the widgets or applications, these we appear on the desktop with a brand to differentiate, to click on them and download directly from the PlayStation Store. What’s more, it is free. The downside, again, back to being adjustments. Sometimes they fall short and we left with the desire of wanting to set up some small detail. Application on Google Play

BIG Launcher

If the above Launchers of you have complex seemed very similar, BIG Launcher will make life easier and certainly will seem different. How often icons, letters or phone numbers seem too small to press them right the first time with our fingers more or less awkward? BIG Launcher For with no problem because everything is huge , indeed, is so great that could be called GIANT Launcher without any problem.

simple interface (and large, do not know if I’ve mentioned), adapted to small needs (which, for example, will go nicely our elders ) and with icons for easy access. not expect great or customization settings , because neither does, nor what you intended.

It is available in two versions. A free, with many limitations , as in the history of calls and messages, desks and personalization columns, and a paying, terribly expensive in my opinion, 8 euros .

Next

Launcher

All previous Launcher customization layers are flat. Not the case of Next Launcher , which has quite resultón 3D animations (not only transitions). With it, you can do more or less the same as with other Launchers, but animations, effects and transitions worth seeing . One would expect that a pitcher like this battery drain like crazy, though, but if you’ll notice a slight difference in the battery life compared to other, not spend as much (even less than some layers like Sense or Touchwiz prior to 5.0).

Moreover, apart from show to your colleagues and leave you with your mouth open, Next Launcher is a little slow, fluid will not because, but because c on much animation times the speed of access to certain functions and applications resents (especially if you need to open any application with urgency). The other downside is the price, very expensive, 12.17 euros , but is available in free trial .

Apart from these Launchers possibly exist only as you may know, Smart Launcher , LauncherPro , SPB Shell , TSF Shell , Rabbit Launcher or Launcher 360 , which we also discussed in The Free Android and we may well be included in the list above, but for reasons such as their usefulness, popularity and small details have preferred to analyze the 10 that have seen.

Do you like? What is your favorite? Do you use any particular that is not listed here?

PD: Sure ye miss many, such as Apex launcher, but being as Nova, we consider best, and being both very similar , or have left out in order to add other different options.
