Review Launcher Lab

Brandon Girod
Has a huge amount of customization options, has beautiful themes right out of the box, performs really well
The tutorials don't go into enough detail
Launcher Lab for Android is the first launcher that has actively thrown me off from the extensive amount of options available. There are so many that I really don’t even know where to begin. So what exactly is it? Well, it’s a launcher, but it’s a lot more than that. You can completely design your homescreen from the ground up. And I don’t mean you can throw in a few widgets here and there. I mean you can literally draw things onto the screen and save it as a launcher.
The first thing that immediately caught my attention with this app is that it has legitimately good looking themes that the developers seemed to have put together themselves. It doesn’t link you to a third party marketplace written in a language you don’t understand. The downside to this is that there are very, very few themes, and they’re only one page each. It’s definitely clear that the developers want to encourage users to utilize the tools they’ve build inside the app.
The options you have to customize your experience are pretty crazy. You can stamp different shapes, customize the navigation bar, and even create your own bar menus from the side. It’s a much different experience than putting something together with Nova Launcher and Zooper.
Launcher Lab is a really good launcher. It’s rare that I say that, but it’s great for people who love tweaking their homescreen. That said, I don’t think it’s going to pull over regular users who like customizing their homescreens via something like Zooper. But only because they both seem to aim and cater to different demographics.
