Smart Launcher 6.4 is here! Discover what's new

Smart Launcher 6.4 has just been released. Find out with us what's new in this new version of Smart Launcher.

๐Ÿ“ธ Photo Widget

The wait is over! Display your favorite photo right on your screen. Plus, get creative with customizable click actions. Tip: Pair it with Icon Pack Studio for big and awesome app icons.

๐ŸŒ™ Automatic Daily Backup

Set it and forget it! Your device will back up your setup every night, as long as it's charging and has enough battery. Don't worry about storage; each backup replaces the previous night's.

๐ŸŽจ Themed Widgets

Not exactly new, but soon available for all! We moved the toggle and now it is easily accessible in Preferences -> Global Appearance -> Widgets.

๐Ÿ•ฃ Clock Font

Customizable clock fonts are back! Choose a unique font just for your clock, perfect for when you want it to stand out from the rest of the app.

๐ŸŒŒ Blurred Wallpaper Effect

If you are running a recent version of Android, you may have faced the issue where the blur effect is not working for your wallpaper because of an Android limitation. We implemented a workaround that allows Smart Launcher to access your current wallpaper by requiring you to take a screenshot of your wallpaper.

Now, if the Blur Effect stops working after changing your wallpaper, you can enter "Preferences -> Global Appearance -> Theme," and click "Blur Effect" to access the wallpaper capturing screen.

Other changes
  • The Wallpaper Cropper now includes a button to help you horizontally center your wallpaper with ease.
  • The Calendar Widget now features a button to quickly create new events (only in the larger formats)
  • Fixed a bug that slowed down icon loading in folders
