    What is it? Why is it on my phone? Is it a must to have?

    Welcome to Android Central! That's the launcher--the graphical user interface that encompasses the homescreen, the App Drawer, etc. It's akin to TouchWiz on Samsung, or Sense on HTC. Nexus phones have the Google Now Launcher.

    You have to have at least one launcher on your phone, but you don't always have to use the preinstalled one. There are many launchers you can install from Google Play, and you can switch between them if you like. Check out Google Now Launcher, Nova Launcher, and Action Launcher for starters.
