Unique quick open feature, do-it-yourself theme builder
Limited DIY options, the language in the store hasn't been translated
360 Launcher for Android is a do-it-yourself theme launcher with a unique way to launch your apps. Rather than simply pressing the button for the app drawer, which you can still do, you can open a large wheel that has apps already categorized for you.
Launchers on the Android OS are basically a dime-a-dozen at this point. What this app does slightly different is the quick open feature along with its customization. The quick open feature can be accessed two ways, one by pressing a shortcut button on the homescreen, and also by swiping from either of the bottom two corners. The animation as the quick open UI opens is actually very smooth and looks great.
The customization options are somewhat limited, however. You’re able to choose from several wallpapers, different ringtones, and other lockers. There doesn't seem to be anyway to change icon packs outside of simply importing icon packs from third party sources.
Besides just trying to create your own theme, which could be a total disaster depending on how creative you are, you’re also able to select from a pool of themes you can download for free or purchase via their store. Fair warning, the whole store isn't translated to English, so it can be difficult to navigate your way through the themes. The rest of the app, is easy to understand, though.
360 Launcher is a fresh looking launcher that performs well in just about every area I could have thought to test it under. Performance begins to slip when you’re in the store. The themes are pretty sleek, and it’s one of the only launchers you can customize yourself.
