    While feature-wise Niagara Launcher by Peter Huber is too limited (for now,) it does amaze with its sleek looks and outstanding, yet simple UX. It gets quite far from traditional Android launchers by ditching the homescreen+drawer combo altogether in place of a simple list of apps, but with a twist - you always have an alphabetical scrollbar on the right-hand side and access to a search bar with a tap on the home button if its enabled (because it is off by default.)

    Support for widgets has been the number one request by many users since last year, and in the latest set of alpha releases, the developer has finally made this wish come true. Perhaps, why don't we go through the changelogs for all of these updates and then give you all of the nitty-gritty details about the current state of this feature?

    What's new

    alpha1

    • 🔣 Widget support - you can add one widget above your favorites (Niagara’s settings > Features > Add widget).

    • It’s vertically resizable (hold on the widget > Resize). Horizontal resizing and centering will come in the second alpha.

    • Fixed a bug in the most used algorithm and made it more precise

    • Replaced a couple of icons (e.g., in Niagara’s settings)

    • Large parts of Niagara’s source code have been rewritten to improve code stability in the long term and to make adding features easier.

    alpha2

    • Fixed a crash that occurred after replacing a widget

    • Widgets can be moved (almost) to the top part of the screen.

    • Updated translations (You can submit your own at http://crwd.in/niagara-launcher)

    • Enhanced app suggestions

    • Changing the widget’s width and alignment is still not possible, but you’ll be able to choose between three different modes in the future (more at the end of https://github.com/8bitPit/Niagara-Issues/issues/117).

    alpha3

    • Provides a fix for a bug introduced in alpha2

    Widgets

    The implementation is not final, so expect in the next alpha builds to see more refinements and other options. Otherwise, settings for customizing the widget height as well as placement are there.

    It has been a month since our last Instagram leak summary, so the time for a new one has clearly come. We have gone overboard trying to find as much nitty-gritty stuff over the Internet regarding upcoming feature additions and UI updates that are expected to come out to the Facebook-owned social media app. Remember that all of these are just leaks and they may not make their way into the release versions at all.
