  • After 7 years of using Google phones I went back to Samsung. Here's my thoughts.
    If you do wind up missing the pixel launcher Lawnchair launcher is awesome. Google doesn't allow it in the play store though so you have to get the APK here. - Source: Reddit / 28 days ago
  • Hi all I need to purchase but I press that button then no response anything...
    It sounds like a rip off of the Foss project lawnchair. I wholeheartedly recommend uninstalling the app before reinstalling the official version from: - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • I'm a bit confused on the versioning

  • /e/OS Review – “forked from Android and completely ‘ungoogled.’”
    Android launchers are like Linux desktop environments. There's plenty of options, and everyone can pick the one that works best for them. /e/'s Bliss Launcher is going to feel more familiar for people who are coming from iOS. For a more traditional Android experience, Lawnchair* would be a better fit. It's just like how GNOME and KDE are closer in design to the desktop environments of macOS and Windows,... - Source: Hacker News / 8 months ago

    Lawnchair (version 5): Homescreen based on on Launcher3 from AOSP. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Looking for a search based launcher with browser integration
    Lawnchair can do that, at least on the older version. The devs have come back from hiatus but I think the new version is being remade from scratch (so it doesn't have many features yet). - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Does Launcher & keyboard matter for Privacy?
    What does Lawnchair offer that the AOSP launcher doesn't? Their website doesn't explain much and is still referencing Android Oreo. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • How can I remove this search box thing ?
    Nova has Google analytics in it, meaning that it is not a good recommendation for those who come to Lineage for privacy. Either use a modded APK of it (security risk but good if you know a modder), or use Lawnchair, a libre launcher that has most features you'd like while not watching what you do on your phone's desktop. :). - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Is there a similar, feature rich home screen launcher to nova launcher?
    r/LawnchairLauncher is FOSS but unavailable on f-droid for some reason. This is the website, this is the source code. I recommend the 10.0 Alpha 8 release from their Telegram channel. I found it to be most stable and most feature rich compared to even Android 11, that is newer, releases. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • How do I get rid of all this blank space that showed up in Android 11 (app suggestion area)
    Lawnchair is great, because it's based on stock launcher but very customisable and open-source! You can get the latest release from the Telegram channel. There's also an official subreddit r/LawnchairLauncher if you want to find out more. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
  • So who still actively uses their pixel 2
    You can use a custom launcher (i.e. Home screen and apps drawer) on the stock OS, such as Lawnchair or Nova Launcher. Much more customizable! - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
  • Is there a way to get rid of "at a glance" in your home screen?
    If you like the Pixel launcher, give Lawnchair a try! I've been using it for a good now and it's my favourite launcher ever since. - Source: Reddit / about 2 years ago
