    Your personalized Home Button App Launcher
    On devices with Android 6 or newer the app opens through «Home Button Long Click», as an alternative to Google Now. You need to configure your "Assist" app manually, see here:
    On Android 4.x and Android 5.x the app is opened through «Home Button Swipe Up», as shown in the linked video. Note this only works properly on devices with three software buttons, e.g. Nexus phones. Samsung phones are poorly or not at all supported.
    This app is ad-free and open source

    Test this app if you're looking for a simple app launcher alternative to «Wave Launcher», «SwipePad», «Smart Taskbar» or «Sidebar», or if you want to replace the default «Google Now» home button binding
    Also check out Home Button Launcher Tools, this integrates nicely into Home Button Launcher

    Does what it's supposed to. Perfect for getting rid of awful Google Assistant and getting Google now on tap back.

    Awesome app. Great workaround for the issue where pressing and holding the home button brings up "Google Assistant" instead of the normal search app.

    Great app, except on Galaxy S6, you have to go to app settings, device assistance app, and change it to Home Launcher instead of Google, before it will work. Also there's no way to just go to the home screen, which is what I really want. Samsung Galaxy S6 has a bug where short press is lost, and long press becomes default, so it's difficult to get back to the home screen.
