How to get Lawnchair Launcher v2 alpha & beta

  1. Join the LawnchairCI Telegram channel Lawnchair Cl.
  2. Tap on the pinned post.
  3. Download and Install the *.APK file from the pinned post

The popular Pixel Launcher fork called Lawnchair Launcher is under preparation for a version 2.0 release. Version 1 was quite famous due to it packing the same Pixel style UI with lots of customization options in tow. Now the goal is to bring the Android P launcher user interface to all users including some personalizations. Keep in mind that not all features from v1 are available in these alpha builds, but they are going to be added gradually.

If you have any issues or feature requests, you can submit them on Lawnchair's official Telegram group chat. At the time of writing, the latest available alpha release carries a version number alpha_317 and there are some issues with it on my Huawei P8 running Android Marshmallow (6.0). Please, check out the screen recording.

Bugs and issues

  • The animation to open up the app drawer is laggy.
  • If you tap on any contributor's name, the app restarts.
  • Icons for app shortcuts are missing.

That's it for this time. Do you use Lawnchair alpha? If you do so, please, report on Testing Catalog, if you are facing any issues with it.
