I have used this for years and it has been great. I like the flexibility of making small tiles and sweeping the app drawer left and right amount others. Very recently I lost the ability to do split screen, which I use a lot. If I switch to the system launcher it is no problem. Please fix. oneplus8T latest update (which is probably when the problem started)

Been using nova for easily 7+ years. Loved this app but their disregard for foldables has been frustrating to say the least. I'm only upset because I want to use their product but can't and they seem not to care. It sucks when your faves basically say your dumb for wanting to try a new piece of tech that at this point seems like it's going to be a part of the mobile landscape for a while. I hope the change their minds and make a stable version for foldables.

One of the best launchers out there. You can seriously customize nearly everything. Launcher remains super fast and intuitive to use. With Prime, you can create a folder, and then select apps to be placed in it. The launcher remembers what apps are in the folder, so if you select other apps, the ones already in there are selected automatically. This really makes it easy to organize your home screen, especially if you have a lot of apps.
