Tech Homie Quick Tips – Android Launchers

DSC04358 (4)


Have an Android phone but bored by the way it looks on a daily basis?  Many popular manufacturers including Samsung, LG, Huawei, and others have conceptualized their vision of a perfect looking smartphone.  However perfect the companies may feel their devices respond to customers, sometimes, they might be looking for something a bit more.

With the iPhone, you may have a trickier time of dealing with this, due to Apple locking the look of the device and the operating system down.  With Android, however change can be a bit easier to come by.  Customers can get rid of the uglier OEM interface in favor of a nicer look.

One of the perks of having an Android phone is the ability to use different Android Launchers, or Homescreen replacements.  Android Launchers give you the ability to change the look of your device to make it pretty, or more adaptive, or even hyper productive with a simple download.  From Nova launcher, to Microsoft’s Arrow Launch, to Evie, (the Android Launcher that I personally use) , Android Launchers give you the ability to change the look of your Android device to something that’s a little more. . . pleasing to you.


Ever since the beginning of mainstream Android devices including the T-Mobile G1, and the beginning Galaxy series of phones,  Android users have been looking for ways to tweak the look of their devices to their liking.  There are even ways to make your Android homescreen look like an iPhone, if that’s your thing.

Android Launchers come in as many variants as there are types of shoes in shoe stores.  You have the ability to change your phone to match your favorite color, your favorite superhero theme, or to the feeling that comes over you at the moment.  Another benefit of Android Launchers deals with the ability to change launchers with ease.

This is because Android launchers only require an app download; instead of a firmware download which requires more work.

To download the Android launcher, all it takes is a trip to the App Store, to download the launcher of your choosing.  Once the app is downloaded, you have the ability to work within the settings of the application in order to fine tune the look or the productivity of the device.

Feel free to take a look at some launchers below:

Nova Launcher

Evie Launcher

Launcher 10 (do you really want your phone to look like a Windows 10 device?)

BlackBerry Launcher (this is for those who may miss their BlackBerry, or really are all about the BlackBerry Hub)

Hopefully this can help you guys change the look of your device to make it look a bit more interesting, if you’d like.

Stay tuned for more tips and tricks to make life easy!
