If you use a budget Android smartphone or your phone manufacturer has pre-installed a bloated launcher on your smartphone, resulting in sluggish responses when returning to the homescreen, trying out a 3rd party app launcher might just give you better performance. Here are some app launchers that I have found to be fast:
Smart Launcher is fast and has a unique UI that looks and feels different from the default Android OS user interface. But it is handy and easy to use too.
solo Launcher is light, fast and elegant. The UI has no significant departure from the default Android OS UI, so it all feels very familiar to Android users.
I am told that Zeam is screaming fast. It is generally acclaimed as the fasted Android launcher. Unfortunately, development work has stopped on Zeam. Chances are that it won’t work well on smartphones running the newest versions of Android OS.
All the above apps are available in Play Store.
