8 Best Free Android Launchers

The Android platform is arguably one of the most flexible mobile operating systems in the customization stakes. Almost every part of the Android interface can be modified to meet the requirements of the user without having to gain privileged control (often referred to as "root access"). Customization extends far beyond simply changing the wallpaper, sounds, and widgets.

When the Home button on an Android phone is pressed, the stock launcher is displayed. Whilst the concept of this launcher is well thought out, its implementation is not to everyone's taste. Fortunately, there are a whole raft of home replacement applications available for Android, ranging from the slickest and most feature-laden launchers, to the decidedly weird and wacky.

Given the plethora of software, the purpose of this article is to provide an insight into the best free home replacement apps available for the Android platform. Hopefully, there will be something here that will rejuvenate your phone, however old it is.

Now, let's explore the 8 launchers at hand. For each title we have compiled its own portal page, a full description with an in-depth analysis of its features, screenshots of the software in action, together with links to relevant resources and reviews. We give our highest recommendation to LauncherPro, ADW.Launcher, and GO Launcher EX.

LauncherPro Super-smooth home app replacement
ADW.Launcher Jam packed with features, eye candy, functions and hugely customizable
GO Launcher Ex Brings a fresh and extraordinary mobile operation experience
Zeam Launcher Minimalistic and lightweight launcher
MXHome Launcher Sports a 3D cover page and a classy coffee theme
QQLauncher Pro Good screen and program management
