There are pros and cons to about every phone out on the market. The best thing about being an Android user is that you can swap out the look of your interface by simply downloading an app. Launchers are a fun and sometimes productive way to switch things up. The name “launcher” is used to refer to any app that lets you customize your interface.
Some launchers serve to recreate the stock Android experience that Google does not. And others exist to solve a particular problem. For instance, if you’re too distracted from life, maybe you can try a minimalist interface for your smartphone. Or, if your phone still hasn’t updated to Android 12 or Android 13, a launcher can help you emulate some of the elements of Material You.
The other upside to Android launchers is that you can always use more than one at a time. I used to switch between a launcher for the workday and the nighttime. So let’s dive into how you can customize your phone using a launcher, and the best ones you should try out.
