Also, you can transform text with the transform option. It lets you add special characters such as quotes and brackets to the selected text and change the case. The app is working well, but the features are limited. Hope it gets a few more in the future

52. Linksheet

If you hate it when any web link you click on your phone opens on the default browser, then this app is for you. Linksheet brings back the Android 11 app chooser for you to choose which app you’d like to open the link. You get these options when you tap on any web link on any app. You can then choose the browser to open the link. It’s easy to use and handy if you don’t like to open every web link you click on your phone in one browser all the time. The bottom sheet can also be customized to show the options you want.

53. OpenLauncher

OpenLauncher is as its title says, it’s an open-source Android launcher that’s minimal in every sense. The home screen features nothing but a date widget and a search button to search for installed apps. Swiping up at the bottom of the home screen or tapping the app drawer button launches the app drawer. You can long press on any app to access additional details of it. The standout feature of the launcher is its mini sidebar that can be accessed by swiping left to right on the left edge of the home screen.

This sidebar consists of a few buttons letting you perform a few actions quickly. For example, changing the volume mode, launching the camera, locking the phone, accessing settings, and more. The sidebar can also be customized to your preference in the launcher’s settings. You can add a few more options or remove the options you don’t want to be on the minibar. In addition, the launcher allows you to customize the dock layout, app drawer style, theme color, change icon pack, support gestures, and more.
