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.
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...
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.
Well, it works but some of the decisions taken are really infuriating: * non-removable weather widget; * round icons are nice if custom designed, but the ones that are cut down from standard ones ugly as hell * launch bar folders look messy Come on, Google, you can do better. Don't make us want to go back to third parties bloatware.
Love the overall design and visual layout of the whole thing. So happy that Google decided to keep the g pill and not revert back to the rather intrusive annoying space wasting search bar
Folder option isn't attractive... Don't want weather app on home screen, not that one anyhow. Anyone root their P XL?
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
