About BlackBerry Launcher

You can personalize your home screen and organize your apps, widgets, and shortcuts just the way you want.

BlackBerry Launcher includes different types of shortcuts to make it easier to perform the tasks that you do the most.

  • You can add a shortcut to your home screen (for example, to call or text a contact, or get directions).
  • If your device has a physical keyboard, you can use existing keyboard shortcuts or create your own shortcuts.
  • You can turn on pop-up widgets so you can see content for an app quickly, without adding clutter to your home screen.
  • If you have a BlackBerry device, you can use a swipe gesture to open the BlackBerry Device Search app, the Phone app, and the BlackBerry Hub from anywhere on your device. You can also customize the actions for this swipe gesture.
