LAWNCHAIR - Customizable Pixel Launcher with Google Now


Okay so you might know that the Pixel Launcher is not available for most of the Android device except Nexus & Pixel smartphones & there are two problems with Google's Pixel Launcher :
  • It requires ROOT if you want to have Google Now Integration.
  • It has absolutely no Customization Options.
So we have LAWNCHAIR the ultimate Pixel Launcher with Google Now Integration and Customization Options. This app was created by Senior XDA Member deletescape, it is a promising new  launcher that does not require root. Especially considering how fully featured Lawnchair already is in such an early state it's definitely worth trying out and you might even decide to keep it as your default Launcher.
