Fairphone 1 Launcher

Launcher originally designed for the Fairphone 1
The Fairphone First Edition Launcher was the default launcher in the official operating system for the Fairphone 1, based on Android 4.2 "Jelly Bean". The launcher was superseded by the Fairphone Launcher 3 in 2015 with the release of the Fairphone 2 model.

The Fairphone 1 apps were designed by Kwamecorp and released as open source software. The WeAreFairphone community makes them available for those users who want to keep the original Fairphone experience.

You may want to take a look at Fairphone's Recent Contacts and Clock widgets too.


Edge Swipe makes it possible to quickly access frequently used apps with just a swipe of the finger from the left or right side of the screen towards the center, and then release it on the desired app. With this feature you can keep your home screen clean and tidy, and only access your important apps when you need to see them.


Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
