Android 101 – What is Launcher ? Can I change it ?

Introduction :

Launcher is the main GUI for your “Desktop” , while unlock your phone, that screen is the Launcher.

This is the original Google Build-in Launcher .


Unlike iOS, All of the Android can be install other Launcher.

Actually, when you buy most of all brand of Android Phone, Tablet, each brand had their own Launcher already, like Samsung , it’s call “Touch Wiz” Launcher as known as “TW Launcher”.


I Feel boring on iOS GUI …




HTC Sense Launcher, I guess you should remember this, I saw this while using Windows Mobile Phone few years ago.

So, if I feel the launcher is bad or I would like to get more customization ?
