Let’s put it like it is, Android is popular because of the sheer customizability of the platform. And frankly no other OS offer this much flexibility. And as a testimony to this there are a whole bunch of launchers out there on the Google Play that offer evolved visuals and interface for those that want them. We use our phones dozens of times each day and the home screen and interface becomes important, and the launchers alter that to make it feel different in ways the developers think the users will like.

One such new launcher on Google Play is the Niagara Launcher, and this offers a minimalistic experience. This launcher is from 8bitpit and the developers have taken into account necessity and the notifications are integrated in the home screen of the launcher with the icon of the app. And though this might just see like a good thing, the devs took it further and even lets the user look at the whole content of the notification by swiping right. User can even write a quick reply to the notification right there.

Those user that are on Android 7.1 Nougat and higher will have Android App shortcuts available for them as well. 8bitpitis created by a XDA Junior Member, this app was made to make life of the user clutter free. All the apps on the phone are available with just a swipe from the right to left. All the apps are tabulated in a alphabetical order and can be accessed quickly by clicking or sliding to the starting alphabet on the right.
