Launcher or Slovak launcher - is a graphical environment in which we move when using the phone. Since its inception, Xiaomi or Redmi phones have used their own MIUI graphical extension, which is built on the Android operating system.
The MIUI interface is an integral part of Xiaomi
MIUI launcher is especially popular for its simplicity and clarity. The MIUI launcher graphical environment contains application cards. One of them is the default as home and among the others we scroll by moving our finger from right to left and vice versa.
However, for most non-Android phones, the graphical environment has been divided into a home screen and an application menu. The first pioneer in this area at Xiaomi was the Pocophone, whose POCO launcher already had a similar interface.
The new version of the launcher can significantly change the graphical environment
Now the latest has been released by the developers in Xiaomi alpha test version of MIUI launcher, in which the option to display the application menu appears. This is a big innovation, as such a possibility has not been available in the MIUI environment so far.
In the display settings, the user can choose how his launcher should display the menu. One option is to display the home screen and the application menu. As you can see on the screenshot, the option is still in Chinese, as it is only an alpha test version.
After starting the display of the menu with applications, an icon for entering this menu was displayed on the home screen. In the application menu, the most frequently used applications are displayed at the top. They are followed by all other applications in alphabetical order. The layout of the icons on the home screen and in the menu can be changed to 4 × 6 or 5 × 6.
Application menu in 4 × 6 and 5 × 6 icon layout.
Another novelty in the new version of MIUI Launcher is the display of shortcuts during the application. Holding your finger on the application icon expands the submenu. This is different for each application. For some, it may just be a display of basic information. Some applications offer more options.
You can try it too
You can also try the trial version. You can download it directly to your phone from this link. You must be allowed to install from unknown sources in order to install it.
As we have already noted, this is a test alpha version of the launcher, so its functionality or the functionality of some applications may be limited and may contain bugs. We were just pleased with the new graphic display options and settings.
We expect that the novelty will soon appear in the final version of the application on our phones.
