How to Install Blloc Ratio Launcher on any Android Phone?

After canceling their much-awaited minimalist phone the Blloc Zero18, Blloc announced yet another hyped-up product named the Blloc ratio, and everyone was super excited to install the Blloc Ratio Launcher on Android Phones. Their invite-only system is what made it super-hyped.

The Ratio is a minimalist android launcher created to help you minimize your smartphone usage; The basic rule here like many other distraction-free minimalist launchers is to make the launcher simple and minimal by using black and white as the base colors in most places. The cherry on the cake, however, is the ability to use many other functions inside the launcher like App lock, etc which makes it stand alone and unique.
