Barephone

A minimal zero-clutter Android launcher

Featured Embed

Barephone is a minimal launcher for Android that lets you see only the apps that you choose.

Select just 5 apps to see on the home screen and choose a few additional apps in the app drawer. It lets you hide all the distracting apps and make it a little harder for you to open them.

It has a dark theme too!

Hello Product Hunt 👋 I'm a 14 year old developer and this is the first Android app that I'm publishing on the Play Store. Do try it out! I look forward for your comments and suggestions 😊

@anharx Nice concept BUT i just downloaded it and have the following to say: - the 5 icons are not centered or even spaced evenly on my phone (Galaxy Note 9), no idea why - icons a bit too small on large screens (they should be resizable IMO) - I cannot add the "dialer/phone" app. It does not show up in the app list. - no icons in the app drawer is a big negative for me since it takes me longer to find the app I'm looking for (icon = instant recognition.) I was thinking this would be a cool launcher for my grandma but without icons, it would be pretty useless Not meaning to sound harsh by saying any of this, just my honest feedback, hope it's useful!

Thank you for making this, looking forward to using it! Tried NoPhone for a while and while it was a nice change, it was a little too restrictive to be practical
