I have tried other launchers for more customization options but keep coming back to this one because it works so well and lets me get on with life. The one thing I would like to see in future updates is a dark option for text in the launcher so that it is visible against a light wallpaper. Right now the white text only works well against dark wallpapers. Overall the best launcher if you don't want to customize the entire home screen.
Really fantastic. I love the smooth app drawer and clean placement of the weather. The circular apps feel clean and modern, and I find the simple long hold for actions more usable than the equivalent force touch on iOS. While learning how the UI worked took a few minutes at first. It really is a pleasure to use. The lack of an icon for the app drawer makes perfect sense and fits the clean no-clutter simplicity of the Pixel devices themselves.
Never seen an update with so many malfunctions. 1. Right swipe Google now is unresponsive. 2. App icons sometimes become blurry. 3. Widget setting sometimes doesn't come out. 4. The launcher appears as a running app in task menu, kind of annoying. 5. Newly installed app doesn't show in app drawer, have to restart phone. Pixel phones are great, this launcher is not.
Can't move Time / Weather widget. Such a waste of space. If another home screen could be set as default it would cure the issue... I guess since I have paid for Nova Prime it's back to old trustworthy...
That little pill thing at the top is laggy with the animations on a brand new Pixel phone. Don't believe me? Set the animation speed to 0.5x in Developer Options. It's really annoying
I thought you fixed the "weather" problem. My clock lost its weather function from one day to the next (just got my phone a few days ago!) and I've tried all the suggested fixes I could find, including reinstalling the launcher update, and it's still gone! So irritating. I loved my Samsung weather widget! And at least if that disappeared (hey, no brand is perfect) I could easily get it back!
As of October 2016:
• The weather appears in the top right corner for your current location
• Visual refresh of wallpaper picker
• New circular folder presentation
• Shortcuts on long-press of supporting apps
