Download Lean Launcher from the Google Play Store

If you prefer the debug version, no worries, you can download it from Github, here. Look for "LeanLauncher-1.0.0-5-play-debug.apk"!

  • - only for debug builds for now
  • Search UI

  • - lock your desktop to prevent accidental changes
  • - double tap to lock

What has happened since 0.3.0?

First of all, I wanted to create two companion apps, one for At A Glance (this is ready), one for Google Now. Sadly, so far all of my implementations sucked for one reason or another, so I still need time for that. If you can't live without Google Now, I suggest you to use the debug build from Github. If you don't really care, use the Play Store version.

But than, Amir released version 3.2 of Rootless Pixel Launcher, so I changed my mind: rebase Lean to make use of 3.2, and implement a few more requested feature. Look at the changelog, I think it looks nice.

What's next?

I have my eyes on two things:
  • stabilization, this is the most important. I have now included crash reporting in the builds, so I can monitor if I need to act on something.
  • proper implementation of Google Now companion app.

TL;DR: Download Lean Launcher from the Google Play Store!

This launcher runs flawlessly on my Pixel 2XL! Just one question - is there a way to turn off at a glance? The option in Lean setting is grey so I cant turn it off. I'm using the debug version 1.0.0-5 from github (the google now page works perfectly btw)

This is a mishap from my side, in the next version, you will be able to turn it off!

It seems at a glance weather is not working in the debug version even after installing and launching the companion app...

That's weird, it should pick up messages from the Google app sooner or later. Once it only started to work for me after I launched the Google app manually, than launching the companion app one more time. Does that maybe help?

Really loving the 0.3.0 version. I have a request. Is it possible to turn off the scroll bar in the app drawer? Scroll bar is really messing up the immersive experience for me. May an option to toggle in the settings.

Thank you for lean launcher

Hi,

Your Pixel launcher runs really smooth on my Note 8 (and I've tried others Pixel launcher less smooth for me), great work!

I love the options already present, maybe an option to change per app icon, but maybe not a good idea to clutter your launcher with a ton of options and loose the performance...

I prefer stability and performance instead of having options slowing down the launcher.

keep up the good work and thanks again!

@Anand durai: I will see about that, not yet sure.
@fullmetal509: For the weather to show, you need to install a companion app, which you can download here. After installing it, launch it once, and then it should start to receive and forward messages from the Google app to Lean Launcher!
@Manson79: actually, per app icon change is planned for the future
