Focus on what matters.
Before Launcher can help you live in real life, by making your phone minimal & decluttered. This light minimalist launcher provides many useful features including:
Focus on your most important apps.
Customize the look and feel
Choose from our large list of photo, gradient and solid themes or create your own.
Fast access to everything
Quickly access all your apps in a scrollable, sortable & searchable list.
Prioritize, group and hide your apps
Create folders of apps, pin apps to the top of your apps list, and hide unwanted and distracting bloatware.
Hide your less important notifications
Our filtered notification drawer is unique. Less important notifications don’t flash, vibrate, make noise or appear on your lock screen. But, you still receive them and they are accessible with an easy swipe.
Notified but not distracted
Focus on what is essential. Your important notifications work normally, so you don’t miss anything.

Save your battery
Use our true black background to significantly preserve your battery (if your phone has an AMOLED screen).
Take control of your phone
Before Launcher sorts apps by their size, their installed date and the last time you used them. Uninstall the ones that take up too much space, or you never use.
Style your app icons
Add our own styles and also add 3rd party icon packs.
Easy set up
Our guided process helps you get Before Launcher set up in no time.

Our product is aligned with the books Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport, and How to Break Up with Your Phone by Catherine Price. Tristan Harris and the Center for Humane Technology also provided inspiration.

Minimalist launcher user reviews :
The experience that this launcher provided is great! I’m able to put my phone aside during times I don’t need my phone; it’s made me more conscious of how much I’ve been using my phone all day. I have a small problem, though: my phone seems to vibrate with notifications of apps I whitelisted on mute. Is this meant to be normal? If not, I hope it could be fixed; nevertheless, it’s a great launcher to try!
This is a really fantastic launcher which seriously helps simplify my life. My experience has been great, but I do wish there were a couple features. I’d like there to be a search bar on the home screen (just a Google search function of some sort) and I think the notifications panel needs a bit of work. Currently notifications cannot be expanded and dismissing the notifications sometimes doesn’t work. Honestly this app just needs minor tweaks. Otherwise it’s amazing.
I love this app! It’s all so simplistic, plus NO ADS, and that’s exactly what I was going for! I I love the notification filter, the layout is great, the color selections are superb, and I’ve actually realized I don’t use a lot of apps on my phone since I mainly only ever use recent and pinned apps! I wish it had wallpapers, but ah well, whatever keeps my mind away from all the other distracting apps on my phone I used to habitually open at one point! 🙂 *EDIT* Wallpapers have now been added!
Great! Wish I could add a folder to my main page. Also more or less options on main page and more customization (font / alignment) and allowing to hide the add app button if less than 7. There are a number of other little things I’d love to see to make this truly perfect , please don’t abandon this dev! Willing to pay $5-10 for a pro version . Update: Paid for pro, thanks !!
