Hi everyone!

I’m happy to share my app, Octopi Launcher, which I’ve worked on for quite a while now.

Octopi Launcher is a launcher for Android, built with the latest trends in mind, which includes visual and haptic effects, and support for foldables.

Features:

  • App drawer, dock and homescreen
  • Different homescreen for different screen layout/ orientation/ size/ foldable position
  • Widgets and (autoscrolling) widget stacks
  • Home screen folders
  • Fine/ free positioning of home screen apps and widgets
  • Big home screen icons
  • Swipe actions for icons
  • Display drawer items as icons or tiles (or single list); sort by installed date or updated date
  • App search + instant launch
  • Icon pack support
  • Wallpaper blur when opening app drawer (on supported devices)
  • Work profile support
  • Fun animations, reflections and haptic effects

    Fair comment. I do not have trackers that may pose a privacy issue, and it will remain so.

      When software is open source, people can know if they should trust you. When it’s proprietary, they need to have faith in your good will.
