This is my go to launcher on Android.

Pros

  • lightweight(uses about a MB of storage and 30-65MB of RAM)

-clean (this is subjective, I love having almost nothing on my home screen, see here: https://imgur.com/a/3hXgeV7)

-extensible (now has support for ONE widget, gestures, transparency effects, and icon themes)

-fast(Literally the more you use it, the better it becomes. You can set up your history to populate by usage, and the most recent selections will occur.

Cons

  • I would like for there to be an export settings function, it's very useful between flashing ROMs and device resets, helps me get back to speed faster.

-I also can't get rid of that little circle that indicates the typing prompt. I get why it still remains, but I'd rather it come in with the 'tap to show history' gesture. Perhaps a future option?

when people say lightweight they dont mean its great for ram but for storage. Its not 250kb the google play is 447kb, f-droid is 449kb. The total memory it will eat up is 16mb which automatically removes it as lightweight because many other luncers do the same thing. i do not think it will save your battery if you hate background apps running like this one. Fast? nope because again it is just another launcher that will take 16mb of memory. This does not go fast, less code does not make something go fast.

This Launcher is very simple and its

  • Able to hibernate apps
  • Lightweight (200kb)
  • Only list view available

it has weakness like :

  • cant view apps on grid view
  • Widget not supported

so i will just give 3 stars
