Launcher

The most visible part of an OS, where users launch apps. Depending on the OS, this may also include home screens, the lock screen, and other screens such as settings.

Some OSes - such as Android - make it easy to replace the default launcher with a third-party launcher. Third-party launchers may offer greater customization, added content, and alternative ways of navigating the OS.
