Do you like to try out new things and want your Android phone to look and feel different? If yes, you must try out a new Launcher. The default launcher is quite boring in that it does not have many features and is very static. What you need is Launch by Quixey Launcher. This app comes with a host of new and exciting features that will ensure that you do not get bored of the interface of your phone. It redefines the style, functionality and home screen of your Android device.


This app has a few innovative features that define it. They have not been seen in any launcher till date. The first among these features is the ‘Blocking Mode’. In this mode, you can block people and apps both. You do not have to download separate apps for either. The app blocking feature comes in handy if you do not want someone to get their hands on a certain app, even if by mistake. Adding people or contacts to the Black List is extremely simple too.


What if I told you that you could use your search bar to search your entire phone for just anything you want? Sounds overwhelming right? This is exactly what the search bar in this app enables you to do. Anything from Settings to Calendar events to Browsing History to Contacts to Apps can be searched in with ease. To open the search bar, you merely have to swipe down your finger on the home screen.

This launcher combines your messages, call logs and People into a single ‘People and Messaging’ app. This helps you manage your contacts with more ease and efficiency. Everything you need is put under a single umbrella for you. This way, you can save yourself the time of having to switch between apps. It also comes with its own ‘App Drawer’ that features a neat and cool look. This one is simple and elegant and does not add many features over the default Android lollipop one.


Another very convenient feature is the Side bar. Located on the top left side, this side bar has the commonly accessed features like Launch settings, Connect, Wallpapers, Widgets, Device Settings, and Phone settings. You can access all of these with a single swipe of your finger.

To give your phone a personal look, this app allows you to customise your launcher. You can add widgets to your home screen and install icon packs. In the app drawer, you can create folders, rearrange apps and even set and number of rows and columns and their size. It also has native support for call log, email, SMS and other accounts.

Launch by Quixey Launcher adds an intuitive touch to your home screen for you. With just a few gestures, you can accomplish and access so much via this app. While some of the apps make a lot of changes, a few do not add features over the default Android launcher. It helps you add a personal touch to your mobile, beginning right from the home screen.

Good: Blocking mode, search bar
