LINE has released its own free Android launcher

1 min read

LINE doesn’t have much of a userbase in the West, but the Japanese app is one of the most popular messaging apps in Asia, and if you’re one of the millions of people that use it on a regular basis, you might be interested in the new LINE Launcher for Android. Available for free on the Google Play Store, this Android launcher focuses on customization, and boasts more than 3,000 free icons and wallpapers that users can choose from. Also, if you feel like the launcher looks familiar, that’s because it’s pretty much just a re-branded version of the Dodol Launcher, which definitely isn’t a bad thing.

Rakuten-owned Japanese messaging app Line has launched the Line Launcher for Android users. The launcher is free to download from Google Play and features themes based on the app’s three popular characters – Brown, Cony, and Sally. Other themes are based on scenery and animals. Once installed, the Line Launcher lets users customise the home screen by adding stickers; change the appearance of apps using different icon packs; add widget shortcuts, and more. Users can mix and match any wallpapers with the icon packs. In addition, to change the look of the device, users can download a new theme or just tap on the ‘Shuffle’ widget to set a new wallpaper. The Line Launcher also recommends users what apps to download and view Push notifications for the Line app. However, users have the option to disable the features under the Advance Settings menu of the launcher. The new Line Launcher includes over 3,000 different themes for users. Other widgets sported by Line Launcher are battery power monitor, one-tap boost to free-up memory, a ‘comprehensive’ search engine, contacts, Wi-Fi, location services, and others. Use of custom shortcut to apps or URLs is also possible. Some of the other customisation functions included are tweaking of dock, lock screen, folders, app drawer, and gesture-based activities.
