Android is currently the leading mobile OS platform in the market, and it has been that way for quite some time now. Google's Android OS is kind of unique compared to other OS', mainly because it's an open source platform (and always has been) which offers consumers quite a bit of option. Not only does the platform offers tons of customizability as it is, some built-in, some through third-party apps (depending on the Android skin), but you can also root your device if you really want to dig in deeper. The point is, this is a very versatile platform, and there are tons of applications available in the Play Store which let you take advantage of this OS.
Launchers are actually the best example of Android's uniqueness, no matter which Android skin comes pre-installed on your device, you can throw a launcher on it, and make it either look completely different and offer new functionality, or keep the looks of it and just add a ton of functionality on it. The 'Edge Launcher' is actually the perfect example of the second scenario. This launcher has been available in the Google Play Store for a while now, but it has received a new update quite recently, and a rather big update at that. The developer has released a v2.0 update, which brings forth a card UI, new sleek animations, and a and a material design for the app settings. The developer has also said that he's working on a ton of new features, such as adding contacts, shortcuts and theming support. He did not give us an OTA on that though, so we'll just have to sit tight and see what happens.
What is Edge Launcher? Well, think of it as a layer of usable features which you can access from the edge of your screen, no matter what are you doing on your phone at that very moment. You can, for example, switch between recent apps really fast, or you can access various quick settings. The app also offers some customizability, in order to adapt it to your needs, of course. This application is free to download and use, but there's also a PRO version which puts even more functions to the table. If you'd like to try out the Edge Launcher, follow the source link down below.
