Samsung Galaxy S8 is the only thing that any tech Blogg(er) talks about right now. The phone was unveiled a couple of days back and the initial reactions has been positive so far. People seems to love the idea of large screen real estate on such a small form factor. Just like every year, the latest flagship comes with a new revamped version of TouchWiz. I have only seen a few videos but I’m guessing it’s definitely better than the previous iterations. Today we have the Samsung Galaxy S8 Touchwiz Launcher available for all Samsung Devices running Android Nougat.
Galaxy S8 Launcher Features:
Below are a few key findings about the new TouchWiz launcher:
There are two styles if app drawers. Pixel Style and iOS style.
Pixel Style: Just like the Pixel launcher, you will swipe up from the Dock area to summon the app drawer.
iOS style: No app drawer. All the icons are laid out in the homescreen. Just like the iOS.
