Niagara Launcher has been updated to introduce a format fully adapted to folding smartphones like the Galaxy Z Fold3.

It may not be an application as well known as Nova Launcher, but in recent years Niagara Launcher has been gaining more and more followers, especially thanks to its simple appearance and its unique format, features that make it especially comfortable and easy to use.

Precisely the creators of Niagara have launched a renewed version of his Android launcher, which takes advantage of its format to convert it into the perfect launcher for folding smartphones like the recent Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3.

The new version of Niagara Launcher is aimed at improving the experience in “foldables”

The team behind the app explains that, taking advantage of the popularity of folding smartphones, they have decided to make sure that Niagara offer the best possible experience on this type of device.

For this, it has optimized launcher interface, so that I can quickly adapt to any screen format – folded or unfolded –, without affecting the organization of the home screen chosen by the user.

One of the changes consists of move the content that appears on the screen and slightly increase its size when the screen is displayed. That way, it’s easier reach the different elements of the interface while the device is held in the hand.

The Niagara Launcher interface adapts to the horizontal format of the screens.

Besides that, bugs have been fixed that had appeared in the launcher when the landscape format was used, and have been added new size options for icons. Also, the support of the “app continuity” function makes it possible to unfold or fold the mobile and continue at the same point, without having to reload the interface.

About the landscape mode, it must be said that Niagara is working in an experimental landscape mode, intended for use in “conventional” smartphones. This mode uses a two column format to make better use of space, and it is possible to activate it entering the command “secret” / landscape in the app search bar integrated in the app.
