When it comes to launchers, there are many many choices around the Play Store. But if you’re a fan of the stock Pixel design, then I’d say the best is “Rootless Pixel Launcher” that was up till now only on the developer’s GitHub. Now, the app is also available on the Play Store. However, there’s one small catch. To use all the features of the launcher, you’ll have to install another app called “Rootless Pixel Bridge”.

We will leave a link to both these apps at the end of the article, so don’t worry about that. Rootless Pixel Launcher brings all the niceties of Google’s stock UI and some nifty good additions of its own. My personal favourite is the support for custom icon packs. You can now also change the shape and design of the icons and enable notification dots. The Rootless Pixel Bridge app will add Google’s Feed to the launcher which is a necessity to the app in my opinion. You will also get “At a Glance” feature with the bridge app.
It is not as versatile as the Nova Launcher or Action Launcher, but then, it was not intended to be. It is currently free on the Play Store and it is available on APK Mirror as well. If you haven’t tried it, give it a go. You won’t be disappointed. Links below.
