You probably have heard words like keyboard, Blackboard or cupboard, but have you ever heard about Launchboard?
I know it sounds quaint, but never mind let me introduce you to this amazing launcher called ‘LaunchBoard’.
Its prominent feature is that it will help you in accessing your applications with just one click on the keyboard.After downloading this application, you can set it in the dock or can place it on your home screen.
When you want to open any application just tap it on Launchboard icon and then the keyboard will pop up in front of you.
All you have to do is type the first letter of the name of the application, then the app icon will appear on your screen in no time, which you can easily access it.Like, write ‘g’ for an open gallery on the keyboard instead of searching throughout all the apps.
This Launcher saves you from all the tizz which you get while finding the apps on your phone.
Favourite box of Apps
With the LaunchBoard launcher, you can set some of the frequently used apps as ‘favorite’ apps.
Above the keyboard of this Launcher, there is some blank space reserved which shows you like apps.
You can make your app favourite by long pressing on it.
And you can access it clicking on the heart shape key located in extreme right position of the keyboard.
We like things by our own choice and that includes to choose icon pack on our own also.
Well, this app doesn’t set up a barricade for you so that you can choose any icon pack patently, downloaded from play store.
The shiny armour, with which you open your apps in snapping of fingers, in the LaunchBoard launcher.
Yup, the keyboard.It has got some colour themes which you can change in settings easily.
Just choose any of the colour including green, red or white to make it flamboyant.
Some other Features:

2. Lawnchair Launcher
For me, the moniker of this launcher is punny, just try to speak its name quickly you’ll find why I’m saying so.
In the game of launchers, this launcher is providing you with the pixel effect in a substantial way.
Because everyone is not a fan of apple or windows themed launcher, there are some people who are fond of Google Pixel also and this launcher is ready to give them feels in their bones just according to their taste.
This launcher has not released yet, but you can install it as a normal application.
The features of this Launcher are:
Lawnfeed is as just as same as google news feed which you can access quickly with just one swipe of a finger.
Like the Lawn which usually situated alongside your home, the newsfeed will also abide next to your home screen.
When you will long press any application a small box will pop up which will show you the current activity of your apps and will also show you all notifications like the message,call etc corresponding to the type of app.
This launcher will never create boredom with the same shapes and themes of apps but can entertain you with the amazing sizes of icons which you can find in the setting of this application.
3. Aio Launcher
Aio Launcher is a type of launcher which will provide you everything in just one home screen.
There are times when the user doesn’t want to have chinky icons, themes, extra features.
For them, it is just a big complexity or we can say a ball of mess.
Instead of running from post to pillar in your android phone, this launcher will provide everything important on just one home screen.
From all of these you may gauge the features of this launcher but still, you need to check out these features.
Monitor on your homescreen
All the information which you need, about your phone, will be shown to you in the monitor section of this launcher.
It will apprise you about how much battery has been used, the usage of Ram or Nand.These little pieces of info will be shown to you in just one slab.
Handy App drawer
When I told you that you will get everything on your home screen, you may have wondered how you will access all the application in a tiny place.
The answer to your question is Handy App drawer which will be hidden on your home screen and you can easily open it with a swipe of your finger.
Mails, Twitter and NewsFeed
If you are an avid user of Twitter and have a habit of reading tweets from time to time and you can’t stop your fingers from checking news feed, emails then this launcher has just got at the edge of your needs.

And one more thing you can easily check the bitcoin price on your home screen also.
Don’t assume that your interface will not look attractive after having everything -be it an application, widgets and much more on one page.
In fact, you can make it look winsome by resizing the widgets or applying themes which this launcher provides you in the settings.
4. Microsoft Launcher
No, No…Just because it is built by Microsoft, this launcher is not going to give you the feels of the window but surely much more than that.
It was formerly known as Arrow launcher when it has slid into play store like three or more years ago.
But now its name has been changed to Microsoft Launcher.
This launcher will give you convenience from connecting your personalize feed with pc to having awesome bing wallpapers.
Let’s have a look at its features.
Personally, this one is my favourite, the chief Utility Page.
Pretty much this page provides you everything including your favourite contacts, frequently used apps, pics and all that stuff.
To get this utility page you have to swipe right in your phone and then there you are in a whole new arena which will show all of your interests things.
You will even get your calendar events, contacts icons, clicked pics news on this page.

We all have seen the dock on the home screen of the android phone, but have you seen the extended Dock?
That comprises of notifications icons also.

Another prominent feature of this search Engine is that it will show your frequent used apps if you will wipe it down and plus you can also launch any application by typing its starting letter in the search engine.
Customization is something which every Android user wants including changing of Icon pack giving them a furnished look.
Microsoft launcher has the inbuilt function of changing the size of apps in case you don’t want to use the icon pack installed from play store.

Things look great when they are perfectly maintained.

Like you can maintain a different group for all the games installed on your phone.
There is something different about the Dock of this launcher, like any other conventional Launcher, it doesn’t let you place your frequently used app in Dock.
But it gives you the unlimited space for storing as many apps to the Dock as you can.
Well, this has given some extra edge.
