Should I be concerned I seem to be the only one using Smart Launcher Pro (at least partially for the KDE theme)?
I really like Smart Launcher. You can set it to a completely clean home screen or have a selection of most used apps with a "drawer" on the left side that separates apps by category.
Outside of that I simply try to keep installed apps to a minimum. I used to run custom ROMs which were awesome for really paring down what I had on the device, but it can be a headache to get working and maintaining.
Smart launcher Here's one setup I use a lot. Started out using Google launcher, then switched to Nova for awhile. Found Smart launcher and its my favorite for sure.
Seems like it would look good with the smart launcher fallout theme. Though i think you need the paid version to replace the clock with a widget.

Install the old pro apk, it unlocks stuff for you. If you buy premium you can uninstall it.
Right now I'm using Smart Launcher Pro 3 since my phone only has, at most, 1Gb or RAM left to use. Before I was using Evie Launcher, I quite enjoyed it.
Smart Launcher has this built-in. I have it on my edge and Tab S2 9.7 -- I can say, "Ok Google" and whichever is closer (and sometimes simultaneously) will respond.
So what are we looking at here?
The launcher I am using is Smart Launcher Pro 3 modified to my likings.
I picked up the background from this album and made it work using the app GIF Live Wallpaper.
The icon theme is Glasklart.
And that is basically it. I don't usually like live wallpapers but I kinda like it in this setting. I also like that the whole theme becomes so minimalistic.
Edit: Oh and Hi guys! This is my first post on this sub. Finally had something post-worthy.
Here's my setup
Using smart launcher with various themes. The wallpaper is live too
Here's my setup right now. Last image is a gif to show animations. Using Smart launcher with two different themes. Whicon icon pack for the app tray.
Edit: lock screen too
Smart Launcher 3
Pretty bland, but I love how empty it is. Sometimes I even hide the app flower thing.
App drawer as well.
Launcher is Smart Launcher Pro 3.
Icon packs are:
Some of my favorites:
Smart Launcher (paid)
Lightning Launcher (free)
WP Launcher (free)
Here is my homescreen
Launcher: Smart Launcher Pro 3
Clock Widget: Zooper by Beard
Icons: Mix Icon Pack
I use Smart Launcher Pro
phone: Nexus 5X, Android Marshmallow 6.0
launcher: Smart Launcher Pro 3
widget: Zooper Widget Pro, "XXXX - Zooper Widget" weather and clock skin by mowmo
icon pack: Adastra, Alos
First theme submitted, found lots of inspiration via other people's efforts here.
I kind of have ADHD and I sometimes get overwhelmed looking at homescreens full of seemingly disorganized icons everywhere. I've literally forgotten what I wanted to do after unlocking the phone before.
I needed a functional system, one that would work well for me while still being pretty.
The first thing I did was download a different launcher that would make android easier to navigate. Out of all of them on the Play store, my favorite was Smart Launcher.
Next, the icons. I had this movement of vision--an epiphany, if you will--when I realized that the reason why iOS only has the same shaped icons across its homescreen is because of the visual uniformity and organization it provides. Boring but with the right icon pack it can be interesting. I decided to go with Adastra and Alos because neither had everything I wanted.
I always want to know what the weather is. Instead of launching Google Now or whatever, I replaced the time/date default widget on SL's homescreen with one of the many options in XXXX's widget pack (sounds like a bad porno, I know). To do this you need Zooper Pro, money I felt was well spent to get what I wanted.
I modified it so that whenever I touch the time, the default Clock app launches. Touch the date, and the default Calendar app is launched. Touch the weather icon, and the beautiful Yahoo Weather app launches (with animations!) with all the weather info I would ever want to know.
Everything is pretty and minimalistic to look at while also being functional. That was very important to me.
Double tap the Chrome icon, and Feedly launches. Double tap the book icon, and it's Pocket (single tap is Google Play books--I like to read a lot). Music is Google Play Music, double tap starts Shazam. Double tap the phone icon, and the Contacts app launches. Double tap the Messages app and that's email right there. Double tap the camera and hello, Google Photos gallery.
See the theme I'm going for here?
Now, for productivity: Swipe to the left to go to the launcher's widgets pages. I only have 2 widgets: Google Keep for my never-ending to-do lists, and a calendar widget so I can visualize what the rest of my day/week looks like.
Swipe to the right to go to the launcher's app "drawer" where every app is auto categorized so I can easily find what I'm looking for. Neat. This is why I loved this particular launcher.
Anyway, I hope this was helpful to anybody who wanted to know how (and why) everything was set up the way it was. Comment or message me if you want to chat about it, I'd love to swap notes or help anybody out.
Thanks! here's my whole theme
Theme album, last two are gifs
Using Smart launcher
Combination of the Glitched theme and Futura theme for SL on the home screen.
App drawer is from the Whicons pack and the Ultron theme/icon pack for the app categories side bar
Lockscreen is from the Futura theme for SL
Album for the Lockscreen wallpaper and some other space related ones I've been collecting
The home screen itself is Smart Launcher 3 (that's the Pro edition, but they have a free edition too); the icons are from Nate Wren's Lines Icon Pack (which also has a free version); while the widget driving the core of my home screen is Chronus and its ability to use DashClock Widgets. Chronus isn't free, but DashClock is and does much of the same stuff (but a bit uglier, IMO). The erroring DashClock widget is Ambient Weather.
Oh, and the backgrounds are powered by Muzei, Pics From Reddit for Muzei, and a selection of subreddits from the Imaginary network.
Remember that you can get it now for 0,50€/0,99$ as it's on sale alongside Nova and many other apps.
I'm using Smart Launcher Pro 2.
Yes with smart launcher on the play store. You can have as many apps as you want on the lock screen. I'll send a link.

Using Smart Launcher Pro
Smart Launcher Pro is what I have been using. Makes accessing any app as quick as 2 presses.
Launcher: Smart Launcher PRO 3
Icons: Cryten - Icon Pack
Widget: High Box Zooper Theme
Wallpaper: From this folder
This is mine.
I've made it so single click opens one app and double click opens another app.
eg. Single click on the messaging icon opens Whatsapp, double click opens Google Messenger.
Rom: Chroma Rom
Launcher: Smart Launcher 3 Pro
Wallpaper: Muzei (with /r/earthporn /r/spaceporn /r/ExposurePorn pictures)
Clock: FORM Clock Widget
Icon Pack: Long Shadow
For the lazy.
I can't live without Smart Launcher on Android. It has spoiled me as far as home screen replacements go. It may only be one screen, but gestures and the few app icons I do have allow me to get to things quick. Plus the minimalist theme allows me to show of my many wallpapers that I cycle through using Wallpaper Changer.
