    i loved my pixel launcher on my pixel xl. i got my keyone yesterday, and i just couldn't give up that launcher, so i went on the hunt. i found Rootless Pixel Launcher.
    this is basically the pixel launcher that works on any android.. and boy, does it look and feel great on the KEYone. complete with the good menu pull to news news and info, weather on top right, without any addition setups and icon packs. give it a shot

    Is it worth giving up the 52 keyboard shortcuts?

    absolutely. in my opinion its no slower to just type the first couple characters for an app or whatever i'm looking for.

    what do you mean? if you hold the screen, the settings for launcher comes up.. there are only 2 settings there.. there was 1 option on the previous build. so i think the dev is still incorporating all those options. you're not missing much..

    launcher 3 settings:
    app suggestions
    allow home screen rotation

    pixel xl launcher settings:
    app suggestions
    display google app
    add icon to home screen
    change icon shape
    icon badging

    the only settings I see are app suggestions. it looks ok, but you can get the exact same look and way more functionality with many other launchers. The only thing this has is Google now swipe on the left. So if you really hate getting to Google now by pressing a button, this launcher is for you 😛

    I guess I'm used to gestures, icon packs, folder options, etc

    *Also doesn't bring up clock app when you tap the date on the top right. Big NO NO!

    i understand. a lot of people love the customization. for me, this looks exactly like my pixel, and i dont need to sit there for hours and installing icon packs and modifying things left and right.. too much of a time waste, imo.

    That's the one thing I miss from my iPhone days. I don't think I even had to pay extra for it but I might be wrong. I'm on Rogers

    Google pill widget or vizorg widget also work great for getting the pixel look. both are in the play store
