About Linux CLI Launcher

Are you sick of all those colorful and chaotic launchers?
Did Icons, App Drawer and Dock bother you enough?
Do you miss those times when you could do whatever you wanted with a simple command and the enter key?
Then, T-UI Launcher and its Linux-like CLI (Command Line Interface) are a must for your Device.

T-UI commands (like uninstall, open, sms, ..)
Native Android/Linux commands
aliases, use your favourites commands faster
suggestions, to help you compose your commands
tuixt, in-app text editor
• widely customizable launcher
CLI music player
• full Linux-like CLI interface

Some T-UI commands:
uninstall [app]
sms [contact] [text]
call [contact]
calc [expression]
search [google, playstore, youtube, files]
share [file]
mv / cp [file] [dest]
+ many other Linux commands

Thanks to Luke Winward for his original idea and for the beta testing. Without Luke this Linux CLI Launcher wouldn't be as it is.

TIP: don't install this if you don't like having a CLI as your home Launcher, if you hate Linux or those two things together

by W####:

It suddenly shown me appinfo app uninstalled and again installed for most of the apps in phone. I am not able to share screen shot here

by D####:

Absolutely beautiful launcer for cli nerds, with some work I got it to get pretty close to my i3-gaps setup. Absolutely recommend this launcher

by V####:

Great launcher.. It's really cool, i don't have to think about wallpaper that match my icon or vice versa, and it makes me look like a smart person.

by U####:

quite awesome. i wish in future v can do $WhatsApp .. and things like that.

by I####:

I love the nerdy effect it has. I can start apps far quicker with this launcher. I do miss the 'ddate' gimmick most linux distro's have :P

by T####:

Thank you! What an idea! Amazing! Well done. I feel I have a new phone! :) The suggestion feature should be improved in the next releases: often used apps should come forward in the list. If I press "c" chrome should be the first not chess since I start chrome more often. While using external (eg. Bluetooth) keyboard, pressing tab should function like in Linux command prompt.

by L####:

I love this, I wish for there is more customization, like disable android status bar, recent keys, or even add lock screen menu with password

by S####:

There are bugs and the launcher forecloses. It leaves a black screen that is irresponsive. Kindly fix.

by G####:

Most productive launcher ever. Period. I found this more than a year ago, loved the idea but it was buggy enough to drive me away eventually. Just gave it a try again and was impressed. Smooth and beautiful and the customisation availiable is over the top! ❤️

by Q####:

This is the ultimate Windows Task Manager Plus Command Line all in one, much better looking, and for the Android variety. I've been messing around with it for less than a day, and the possibilities which await me once rooted are very exciting A really nice snapshot of what your phone's up to when, normally, you'd just think it was just sitting there. I recommend it.

by B####:

First of all, it's an awesome launcher than other launchers out there. ... I would suggest you to add text widgets on the screen similar to the way RAM is displayed on the screen you could add "time","to-do list",etc.. ... it would make it awesome

by M####:

After the update when you tap the middle button of android to minimize all, it redirects to access notification page. And I juts gave permission to it. Please, fix it, and I also would like to not give permission for access notification too

by P####:

Its all good and stuff but for somereason twitter, fb and other apps crash quite quickly using this launcher, fix ples. Also a wallpaper support would be great, i have smexy live wallpaper that goes well with this

by X####:

Awesome application ! A must-have. Thanks to the developpers. This app is really easy to use, fully custumizable and fonctional. Often updated with a lot of new fonctionnlalities. No serious bugs. Amazing. Download and try !

by O####:

Best launcher on the play store!! It's so unique in its ability to use commands to perform root actions. If you don't understand what I'm saying, this launcher isn't for you.

by K####:

really good launcher, easy to use with hardly any CLI experience. also no more thinking about where to put icons and no more mindless staring at the icons not knowing what to launch lol. i miss widgets though

by H####:

This is the best launcher ever. I have gotten tired over the years of watching the launchers grow, while the capabilities remained the same. This one in my opinion actually gives more capabilities with a smaller footprint on the device.

by N####:

Amazing launcher, love it. If possible I do have one feature request, is to have integration with termux, or at least the ability to set the path variable, cuz then I could set the path to include termux's path. I tried and it doesn't work. Other than that it is still an amazing launcher. Edit: Just realized that this request isn't possible, or at least I don't think it is.

by E####:

This app is brilliant, very customisable, does everything a launcher should and even makes me look intelligent. Dev fast to respond when I accidentally deleted my apps.xml file after a night on the whiskey... The online tutorial could be a bit more detailed but it's a minor point in an otherwise faultless app. Worth 5 stars all day long.

by C####:

I really love this app! Especially this new design, didn't really like the old design. It would be nice if it could execute Linux commands on here like termux though. I think I have encountered a bug or something, when I used the command "apps -rmfromgp Games Pocket Mine 3", the game doesn't get removed, instead an "apps" help gets shown.

by F####:

Really great app. I like the customization options available if you're willing to read. I've always preferred a cli to a gui but I'm not sure how well it works on a phone. I like what I've seen so far, but I'm interested to see if this becomes less novel and more trivial in the future. Would also like to be able to hide the clock in the status bar via root, like in Nova launcher. Seems cluttered to have battery and clock in the interface and the status bar. Would prefer the in-app clock to the status bar clock without using fullscreen.
