Open Source Android Launchers in 2020

Bliss

This is an iOS knock off without the benefits of iOS. There’s no customization. There’s literally not so much as a home settings menu. Apps are laid out on the homescreen with a widgets screen on the far left. It will almost convert your Android into an iPhone. Thankfully, its almost. Ironically, Bliss was built for /e/ which sells Google free devices in the name of privacy.

The icons do look nice and the developer has done well creating an iOS look alike. I can’t fault them there and its a refreshing change from the many Pixel style launchers available. While I would personally enjoy more options, I don’t think Bliss needs them.

When trying the widget screen, the weather widget crashed. Adding my own widgets, like the SolarEdge power widget, worked fine.
