Since we got our hands on the Samsung Galaxy S3 we have been playing with this device to test functional and aesthetic improvements.

This is precisely one of the biggest advantages of Android, where the possibilities for customization are endless with the Launchers.

These are kind of GUI (grapichal enviroment) managers who are responsible for managing the windows, screens, icons, and switching between applications.

The default Launcher Samsung Galaxy S3 is the user interface called TouchWiz Nature. However, when installing an alternative launcher, pressing the button ‘Home’ you will see a list from which to select the one you want to use.

Most of the approaches to the functions and operations of the launcher come from the sidebar, but the sidebar column can also be customized.

In fact the only negative aspect of this launcher is its price as it is available in Google PLAY for 16.80 dollars.
