Android question

What do launchers do?

Someone just asked me which one I'm using and I don't think I am.

They launch

Think of it like a small program that kick starts apps etc...

Dunno how you would find your version though...Mebee it's in the 'about phone' section in settings?

iirc the launcher is how your apps/home screen are displayed.. If you download a launcher it can change things to suit you.. e.g you can have a row of 5 apps instead the stock 4 etc. it can turn your app tray into a cube etc.

Your android device is usually installed with the default launcher..perfectly fine...but you can also download others from google playstore which can tweak preferences a wee bit more

Type in launchers free and download what you want.

I prefer the Nova launcher myself but it's horses for courses !!

Nova launcher for me. Apex launcher is good too.

Best part for me is that the home screen and app drawers rotate, the default ones don't.
