note 7 launcher

Once you turn on the screen on the brand new Galaxy Note 7, the first thing you’ll notice that it has a brand new launcher which is quite different from Galaxy S7. Samsung calls it the GraceUX, the new TouchWiz UI for Samsung devices, which is a lot smoother than the earlier versions of TouchWiz UI. GraceUX is a bit new to the Android world but it already managed to get the attention of many users and developers. One of the noticeable things is the latest Note 7 launcher app on the Galaxy Note 7.

Luckily, one of the developers has extracted the GraceUX Note 7 Launcher from the official firmware and ported it to all the Samsung devices running on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow TouchWiz ROMs. So, any Galaxy S5, S6, S7, Note 4, Note 5 users who are on Android Marshmallow can install the Note 7 Launcher. Your device must be rooted in order to install the Note 7 launcher.

Many users have confirmed it working on Galaxy S6, S7, and Note 5 devices and it is highly likely that it will work on Galaxy S5 and Note 4 as well provided you have TouchWiz firmware based on Marshmallow. So, without any further ado, let’s see how to download and install Note 7 launcher on your Samsung device.
