The Best HIDDEN Android Launcher of 2018?

Diving a head first into this list and starting off at number 10
Android Launcher

Bubble launcher which as the name might suggest has one key mechanic behind it, all of your icons are placed into these nicely animated circles and the order they're presented in is roughly alphabetical from the top left to the bottom right, so it makes it fairly easy to navigate, you then hold down the screen if you want to open up the customization menu fair warning though and the reason this isn't higher up on the list customization is very limited, you're pretty much limited to changing the size of the bubbles and changing the wallpaper.

Textual launcher- again this is another one of those where the name kind of gives it away, it is very much a launcher focused on practicality there is next to no visual flair here and all your applications are words rather than icons, nonetheless it is surprisingly fast to navigate once you get the hang of it and rather generous to your battery life.

Strip Launcher- this is a curious launcher because whilst most Android home screens try to give you a base that you can build your own perfect setup on, strip launcher almost decides it all for you the caveat of that that you don't get much in the way of customization, but then the upside is that everything just works and you've got pretty much everything that most people would want, you've got an app drawer you've got widgets you've got a music player it's all here.

Sesame Launcher- as we're moving up the list we've got a couple of really great apps that whilst you can't call them launcher in their own right can enhance your existing setup, the first one being sesame which is a really fantastic all-in-one search bar so you could be using whatever launcher you feel comfortable with place this on top of your screen and all of a sudden you've got a search bar that actually learns from you and creates all sorts of very interesting very unique shortcuts that genuinely make your life faster.

Jina Drawer- arguably even better than this is the Jina draw which is an application drawer replacement so you can slap this into a set up on any launcher and you get not the prettiest app drawer, but almost definitely the most functional, you get everything from automatic app sorting to being able to fine-tune the way it looks, not to mention it is packed with these little surprises like being able to sort for only the apps you paid for or only the ones that are not in a folder, you can get it to suggest games you might want to play or you could even dig into some pretty heavy-duty app usage stats.

Peek Launcher- whilst it's pretty atypical in the way it looks and works for a certain kind of person, peek launcher will be the fastest way you can navigate your Android phone, you just start typing into your doll pad and almost every application setting and even contact becomes a couple of clicks away.

Sense Home- HTC's Sense home is not an application that you can find on the PlayStore with most phones, but it's surprisingly easy to side load and is in my opinion one of the better-looking slicker faster launchers out there, it's one of those ones that a lot of people never think to install on their phones, but once you have it on your device you rarely will want to switch to anything else and of course you get blinkfeed as well as all the HTC themes bundled in.

Pear Launcher- we're getting into the top three and in third place is Pear launcher now in some ways this is less exciting than previous ones in that it's quite a standard launcher it's quite a trying to please all kind of launcher, it's not got some really unique characteristic about it, but it's got a sprinkle of new ideas which I do like, you've got an up-to-date Android P style dock at the bottom, you've got the option to have folders within your app drawer which is something I really wish more launches would start to adopt and not to mention really fast, really responsive gestures such as being able to double tap the screen and for it to then turn off.

Flow Home- something you'll again struggle to find on the Play Store is flow home it has almost all the features of more traditional launchers, the abilities to customize, the abilities to add widgets, but that's presented in a very different unique way. Your primary home screen is just a combination of cards showing you your current notifications which if you think about the reasons you should actually be using your phone notifications make sense to be right at the forefront and all the widgets you want to put on your homescreen can be shown and disabled within one and tap.

UR Launcher- in this whole list my favorite is UR launcher, something which can be quite overwhelming when you first open it because there's a lot going on here, you've got a screen on the left which gives you quick access to little toggles as well as recent applications, but the primary element here is that the UR launcher tries to adapt based on your mood, so you can switch between the mood when you're at the gym, the mood when you want to play games, the mood when you're just lounging around at home and if you want you can even set it up so the launcher will automatically change these moods for you based on certain triggers.
