When it comes to mobile phone operating system, two things that come to our mind are Google’s Android and Apple iOS. Each one has its own fan base. But over the recent years Google’s Android has increased it’s market share manifold thus becoming the most widely used mobile OS. One reason can be because iOS is limited to Apple devices which are in fact highly priced!
However, the reason can also be the high level of flexibility and customization that Android offers. On the other hand, an iPhone offers only a limited customization options unless you jailbreak the device. Lets just cut the comparison and get to the point.
If you are currently using a mobile with Android OS, but thinking of switching over to iPhone then I suggest you to try out these iPhone Launchers on your Android phone. Well, you can experience the iPhone’s user interface without shelling out a dime!
Apple iPhone Launcher for Android Mobile Phones
Check out these apps can magically transform your current UI and switch you over to the rich iOS user interface. This along with the iOS Emulator for Android mobiles can definitely give you the best iPhone experience right on your current device.
When it comes to giving you the best iPhone experience, One Launcher is second to none. Soon after it was released, it became the most popular iPhone launcher for Android devices. It is pretty easy to use and customize. Once you install this app from the playstore and open it, you’ll be presented with an ‘Experience’ button on the screen. By clicking on it, your screen will be transformed into an iPhone-like home screen. You will witness a user interface which is similar to iOS 8 along with an iPhone-like icon set and all the iOS transition effects. The developers of this app took care of patching up even the tiniest of detail that could give away the iPhone-like user experience.
Once you install this app, you’ll find a ‘One Tools‘ folder on your home screen. Here you will find the settings and additional features and themes that you can hook up with the One Launcher. You can tweak the user interface by clicking on the Preferences icon. Here you can change the lockscreen settings, gesture settings, change animations, shadows and effects.
Just like you’d do on an iPhone, when you press hold an icon to make it wriggle and then you can drag and drop it anywhere on the home screen or place it in a folder.
The old lock screen will be replaced by the iconic ‘slide to unlock’ lock screen which you find on iPhone.
The transition graphics were up to the mark and would be even better if your Android mobile has a powerful GPU hardware. Further more you can actually tweak use new transition effects which is only possible on a jailbroken iPhone.
Another surprising thing is that this app doesn’t hog much of your phone resources. Also, your won’t notice any considerable battery drain issues.
iLauncher – OS 9
This is the free version and can be upgraded by purchasing the Launcher Pro License. Although its a free version, it provides most of the features you’d expect. This iPhone home screen launcher runs smoothly and provide decent iPhone like user experience without any lags and flutters. You can press hold the app icons to move them around or delete them. Also, just like on the iPhone, you can set gesture commands. For example, you can set a gesture command to perform specific tasks when you swipe up/down or press home button.
The main drawback with this app is that it displays too many ads if you are on the free version. These ads are just a distraction to the user experience. You need to purchase a Launcher Pro license in order to prevent the ads and get access to some more additional features.
OS9 Launcher HD
This is another good application which provide you with the best iOS 9 experience. Once installed, the app switches you over to the new interface which looks and feels like an iPhone. The developers have made sure that even the size of the icons is same as the ones you’d find on the iPhone. You get all the bells and whistles like the transition effects, sliding effect, themes and iPhone wallpapers.
The OS9 Launcher has a OS Booster option which clears your phone RAM, in case you feel a lag while using the app. There is also a OS Search feature, where you can find details like last used applications, recent contacts, received messages.
This app offers a simple and clutter-free iOS user experience. The interface is similar to the one you’ll find on an iPhone using iOS 9. The developer, TopMobi made sure this app uses less memory resources and thus making it lightweight and quick.
It offers 6 transition effect for the home screen. Once installed you can tweak the settings to hookup icon packages, live wallpapers and other third party themes. Additionally, this application also gives you a privacy option to hide apps.
Don’t confuse this with the iLauncher OS9
This app is simple and doesn’t have many unnecessary features which you find on other iPhone launchers. The best part about this iPhone Launcher is that its free and displays no ads at all (at least I haven’t seen any!).
To conclude, I suggest you to try out each of these iPhone interface launcher and choose the one which you like the most. You can select the best iOS launcher based on the quickness of the interface and low memory usage. Don’t forget to let me know your choice.
