Its super amazing to get such realistic and nearly true iOS experience that is crafted for an android device. The launcher adds iOS like widget screen, option of remove and rearrange apps on long press.

Its free but has a major obstructive ad problem, i.e ads are shown too frequently and ruin the all over experience for a user.

Still it worth a try.

Apex Launcher

Visually stunning and comes up with 1000s of themes and icon packs, this is truly a Jack of all kind of Launcher for your android device. It will take up days to all that is offered by free version alone.

You can add up to 9 customizable home screens and hide apps in your app drawer that you don’t need. The launcher sorts apps in the app drawer according to the title, installation date or how frequently you use them.

Its fully optimized not only for smartphone devices but also the tablets too, you can get more feature if you buy its premium version. It will give you gestures and more cool stuff to play with.

Smart Launcher

Smart Launcher is also kind of lightweight still filled with a lot of customizations. Its latest verison in Smart Launcher 5 which is out for download on play store.

Its user centric design make it better than the rest,  The app drawer consists of a sidebar that divides the apps according to a category.

It has ambient theme, which means it changes according to the wallpaper which is yet a cool auto feature. One more thing it asks for default apps while setting up, So, no more annoying opening pop ups.

Being a free version, ads disturbs too much, but one may get pro version if he finds this suitable for him.

Microsoft Launcher

Okay, this is as name suggest, are you a microsoft fanboy or just a casual user of windows like nearly 70-80 percent of computer users.

This is a launcher my Microsoft itself, It can sync between your microsoft account and show the Microsoft Timeline feature resembling “Google Cards.” Also, the Recent panel shows the recently opened media or recently used contact.

The only drawback of using Microsoft launcher is that it doesn’t allow much customization as in the other best launchers for Android here.
