Great but would love some notification badges. This launcher is possibly the best for Android phones as it is lightweight, compared to other launchers and seamless integration with Google Now is a good thing by swiping as other launchers are lacking this feature. However, the only reason I'm not using this launcher is because it lacks notification badge, which is a vital feature. Would definitely switch back if Google could include this feature!
Simple, clean and smooth which is exactly what I wanted. Works well on my S7E and I actually prefer it to Go, Nova launchers although they're highly customisable. Just one thing though wish there was a way of removing/disabling the Google search bar and app drawer icon. Please allow that option in the next update. Other than that it's almost perfect!!
Good Launcher with Drawbacks It's a good launcher. Fast and speedy and love the simplicity of stock Android BUT i wish it had more. For one I would love a black theme version especially at night where the drawer is very bright and annoying with its white background, overall a whole system black theme would be great*. Secondly wished we could customize the app icons which other launchers have especially with awesome icons found on the store. A whole system theme engine would be excellent. Come now Google
if there was a way to import the settings and home screen setup from other launchers ( like what NOVA, and APEX do ) it would be much more usable and helpful. it' OK if you have a fresh phone but if you have been using your phone for a while you have the home screen set the way you like it, you should be able to at least import the setup to the new launcher making the transition much more easier. I'll happily give Google Now Launcher a try when they implement a import settings and home screen function. Until then I'll give it a miss.
Search bar locked to every home screen! Just bought a new phone, finally moving away from Samsung. Found I was getting upgrade to 6.0.1 and still the Google search bar is locked to every single home screen. IT'S MY PHONE so I wanna be able to move things that I don't have a use for or that look a disgrace blocking my personal photo I use for wallpaper. Come on Google. You're getting like Apple these days forcing settings onto us! Possibly the main reason I haven't entertained Apple at all. However, may as well consider them again!
Best Android launcher I have ever used. I use this launcher on all of my devices because it looks nice, is easy to use, still has the app drawer icon, and I like the look of the Google search bar instead of the slide to search option and constant date showing up in the corner. If I want to see the date all I have to do is pull down the notification bar.
