Home Switch

Apk file size: 2.3 MB

A little app that will wipe your current home screen and then prompt you to select a new one. Can be used instead of finding the app that is the default in settings, and wiping defaults.

Whilst this app does list in the launcher options, it will force you to keep picking another one, so please do not select it as your launcher. This isn't a bug, it is by design - It is not a launcher replacement, merely a tool that lets you easily clear your defaults.

Home Switch does not work with devices running:

EMUI (Support is added in Beta)
And FireOS (Amazon Fire)

Or anything else that sets a home launcher without using the standard Android defaults.

The cleanest And simplest! Just asks for the new default ,just like when it is first. So about 3 clicks. Some app switches might get by with only 2 clicks, but the are uglier and still don't offer the ability to REMOVE ONE OF THE LAUNCHERS FROM THE MENU! Why would you want to you might ask? Because on Samsung I have an launcher called EasyRetardHome. Don't misinterpret_ me. (it is a great feature. I just would like to have the option to hide easy whiz.

The #1 Launcher Switching App This is the only Launcher switching app on android that deserves more 5 Star ratings. The app has the simplest interface you click on Home Switch a tiny window pops up with your installed launchers then click a launcher and set it to always and then your done. The app is perfect there are no stupid ads, no IAP, just completely free and awesome. If you want a easy way to switch launchers get this app and rate it because the developer of this app deserves it for such a well but simple developed app.

This is my go-to switcher app It is rock solid and always does what it is supposed to do. Nothing more needs to be said.

Ben Stichter

Worked fine until... It worked just fine on my Fire Phone until the added code to check for FireOS and make the app disable itself... Thanks for nothing.

Michael Roney, Jr.

This app was working fine until the most recent update removed Fire OS support. Now I can't change the launcher on my phone. Otherwise, the app is great.

... You can do it manually from settings, but this application made it more easier to change the launcher than the normal trick... thank you :D

This is the best quick switcher I've used On my Sophone i6 plus, the custom is designed like the iOS So there is no "default app" selection like I have in my Samsung device. I like to use the custom launcher which looks like iOS 8, but I also like to use either arrow launcher or Google Now Launcher. That's as of right now, I switch launchers constantly always looking for better ones, next launcher has been the best for me actually. with this app set on the home screens of every launcher, I can switch instantly!

Bex McD

Doesn't work anymore Recent update broke the fire phone, now I can't use the google launcher anymore.

Very much convenient App for switching between launchers easily without any issue awesome app

Says no fireos Still works when you press home you can switch launcher. So...

Harold Herstein

Used to work on Fire Phone When I got my fire phone a while back, Home Switch worked great. After an update that included a "feature" to block Fire OS devices, it stopped working and hasn't worked since. As an alternative, Home Switcher / Manager by Twisted Apps works. Message to Stu: The Fire Phone never directly included the Play store. It had to be side loaded along with Google services and the Now Launcher.
