Dozens of launcher apps are available for Android OS, but Hola Launcher might best them all. Unlike other launchers, Hola takes a simple approach to Android smartphones and tablets. This particular launcher favors simplicity and performance with a dash of customization. The skin over Android doesn't change things too drastically or try to reimagine the entire Android experience.

Hola Launcher gives users a simple home screen that doesn't swerve too far from stock Android. However, users can customize their icons and backgrounds in the launcher. Hola Shine is an app wheel that pops up with a simple swipe. It includes apps and commands so that users don't need to head back to the home screen. For the most part, Android users will feel comfortable using this launcher after a few minutes.

A power manager and battery saver are included in Hola Launcher by default. Combined with Hola Boost, Android devices will run smooth and even achieve better performance than without the launcher. An Applock feature protects apps, images, and other content from prying eyes. Plus, apps can be hidden from the home screen, and users can take advantage of many other features to improve their daily experience.

In daily use, Hola Launcher doesn't experience too many bugs or glitches. The launcher runs smoothly, and its features succeed more often than they fail. Android smartphone and tablet users will enjoy the simplicity afforded by the app. On top of that, customization options ensure that each Hola user can personalize the experience to their own needs. Not all launchers perform as well as Hola with constant use.

Potentially dangerous permissions

  • ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION: Allows an app to access approximate location. Alternatively, you might want ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION.
  • ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION: Allows an app to access precise location. Alternatively, you might want ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION.
  • CALL_PHONE: Allows an application to initiate a phone call without going through the Dialer user interface for the user to confirm the call.
  • CAMERA: Required to be able to access the camera device.
  • READ_CALL_LOG: Allows an application to read the user's call log.
  • READ_CONTACTS: Allows an application to read the user's contacts data.
  • READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to read from external storage.
  • READ_PHONE_STATE: Allows read only access to phone state, including the phone number of the device, current cellular network information, the status of any ongoing calls, and a list of any PhoneAccounts registered on the device.
  • READ_SMS: Allows an application to read SMS messages.
  • WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to write to external storage.

Other permissions

  • ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to access information about networks.
  • ACCESS_WIFI_STATE: Allows applications to access information about Wi-Fi networks.
  • BIND_ACCESSIBILITY_SERVICE: Must be required by an AccessibilityService, to ensure that only the system can bind to it.
  • BLUETOOTH: Allows applications to connect to paired bluetooth devices.
  • BLUETOOTH_ADMIN: Allows applications to discover and pair bluetooth devices.
  • CHANGE_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to change network connectivity state.
  • CHANGE_WIFI_STATE: Allows applications to change Wi-Fi connectivity state.
  • DISABLE_KEYGUARD: Allows applications to disable the keyguard if it is not secure.
  • EXPAND_STATUS_BAR: Allows an application to expand or collapse the status bar.

  • RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: Allows an application to receive the ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED that is broadcast after the system finishes booting. If you don't request this permission, you will not receive the broadcast at that time. Though holding this permission does not have any security implications, it can have a negative impact on the user experience by increasing the amount of time it takes the system to start and allowing applications to have themselves running without the user being aware of them. As such, you must explicitly declare your use of this facility to make that visible to the user.
  • SET_WALLPAPER: Allows applications to set the wallpaper.
  • SET_WALLPAPER_HINTS: Allows applications to set the wallpaper hints.
  • SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW: Allows an app to create windows using the type TYPE_SYSTEM_ALERT, shown on top of all other apps. Very few apps should use this permission; these windows are intended for system-level interaction with the user.
  • USE_FINGERPRINT: Allows an app to use fingerprint hardware.
  • VIBRATE: Allows access to the vibrator.
  • WAKE_LOCK: Allows using PowerManager WakeLocks to keep processor from sleeping or screen from dimming.
