    Your personalized Home Button App Launcher
    On Android 6 Marshmallow the app opens through «Home Button Long Click», as an alternative to Google Now. Note 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

    Thankyou, one of the most useful apps I've installed lately. To disable google assist you have to set as default assit app in: settings > apps > setting icon > assist & voice > assist app. After that you can enable auto start in the rocket launcher app to bypass google assist and go back to google now or whatever app you prefer. Only thing im not fond of is the rocket icon that pops up on long press home.

    This app saved me from having a mental breakdown. It completely rids of that god awful google "assistant" on my S7 edge and gives you the good old google now which is much faster and easier to use. I applaud the creator of this app as I now don't have to go to the Verizon store and make them uninstall the updates to my phone.
