Japanese messaging app Line has launched the Line Launcher for Android users. The launcher is free to download from Google Play and features themes based on the app’s three popular characters – Brown, Cony, and Sally. Other themes are based on scenery and animals.
Once installed, the Line Launcher lets users customise the home screen by adding stickers; change the appearance of apps using different icon packs; add widget shortcuts, and more. Users can mix and match any wallpapers with the icon packs. In addition, to change the look of the device, users can download a new theme or just tap on the ‘Shuffle’ widget to set a new wallpaper.
The Line Launcher also recommends users what apps to download and view Push notifications for the Line app. However, users have the option to disable the features under the Advance Settings menu of the launcher.
The new Line Launcher includes over 3,000 different themes for users. Other widgets sported by Line Launcher are battery power monitor, one-tap boost to free-up memory, a ‘comprehensive’ search engine, contacts, Wi-Fi, location services, and others. Use of custom shortcut to apps or URLs is also possible. Some of the other customisation functions included are tweaking of dock, lock screen, folders, app drawer, and gesture-based activities.
The Line Launcher app weighs 11MB, requires Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich or later OS versions to run, and is available to download from Google Play.
