Before Launcher maximizes your time by minimizing the look of your phone. This minimalist launcher provides functional features including:

✅ Minimal homescreen
Quick launch of your most important apps. It’s configurable, too!

📱Customize the look, make your own clean style
Choose from our large list of photo, gradient and solid themes or create your own.

🚀 Fast access to your favorites and everything else with one swipe
Fast access to all your apps in a scrollable, sortable & searchable list.

⭐ Favorite, folder and hide your apps
Group apps into folders. Pin apps to the top of your apps list. Hide unwanted and distracting bloatware (*available in pro version)

⛔ Hide trivial notifications
Our filtered notification drawer is unique. Trivial notifications don't interrupt you with vibrations, pings or noise. They won't clutter up your notification bar. But you still receive them and they are accessible with a quick swipe.

🔕 Notified but not distracted
Focus on what is essential. Important notifications (defined by you) still notify you, so you don’t miss anything.

🤝 Built to be private
We are not in the business of capturing or selling your data. We don't track any data that identifies you. We even allow you to turn off our anonymous analytics.

🔒 No required permissions = more privacy/security
Many other launchers want 10 or more device permissions. (the notification filter asks for one access but you can turn off that feature).

🎯Take control of your phone
Before Launcher can sort 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.

⚙️Suite of custom widgets designed for wellness
Practice mindfulness using our free widgets designed to reduce screen time. See date & time, battery, weather, and your average screen unlocks for the day and week.

🦄 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.

❤️No AI, just humans
We’re here for any questions, comments, or concerns about the launcher.

The Before Launcher app, with your consent, uses Android's Accessibility Service API to enable the double-tap gesture to quickly turn off your device’s screen. Your use of this feature is optional. The accessibility service in Before Launcher is disabled by default. Your consent is required to allow the accessibility service to be used by the Before Launcher and when consent is granted it is only used for the double-tap feature. You can revoke your consent at any time. The feature and the service do not collect or share any data.
