GEAK OS Review

GEAK OS iconWhat happens if you take a typical Android launcher, and turn it into a launcher with everything bundled? A phone, a calculator, a news reader – GEAK OS is everything and that. GEAK OS, at the time of writing, is a launcher, together with a news reader, text messaging client, dialler, market, and contacts management client.

This launcher takes on the form factor of the MI Launcher as well. This means that instead of the typical app drawer and home screens interface, it has all your apps listed out on the home screen itself, together with any custom widgets or shortcuts you may have added. You can also put icons together into separate folders to easily organize your apps and shortcuts. GEAK Mobile is also working on the ability to hide icons, according to one of its representatives.

Pros:

  • Clean interface
  • Could potentially be an all-in-one solution for all built-in apps
  • Custom icons look really clean

Cons:

  • Translation needs a bit more work
  • Icon packs not supported, could be added in the future
  • Updates sometimes break Market app

If you want to try something new, you can get GEAK OS here:

Alternatively, if you are unable to access the Play Store, you can use evozi’s APK downloader to sideload the application onto your device.
Stay awesome!
