Highly configurable, very stable and super fast. Unfortunately it could do much more but developer is slow in providing new features. It could add some security features such as passwords on configuration, folders and drawer tabs. Folders doesn't have a dismiss button, what could be very usefull when you have many icons on folder . Activities shortcuts are so slow that is better to use a third party app. Other enhancements could be implemented but they are delayed forever and ever... App is great anyway, probably thebest launcher on market
Since day 1 this has always been the best and most professional launcher. Glad to see a few enhancements to bring it a little more up to date. One thing with the adaptive icons I notice is if you use your own icon image then that will not convert to the new selected shape, even with the legacy setting turned on. Also when using an icon pack and a certain app isn't in that pack and the pack puts a default mask on, then the new functionality changes the icon shape inside that mask as opposed to the external shape of the mask. Also the adaptive does not work on the app drawer icon. Otherwise the new functionality is great.
Nova on a whole is a brilliant, sophisticated launcher, which provides some cool features from AOSPs and Google Phones (Pixel) to anyone. It is generally beautiful and I really enjoyed the features. However, my experience has been hampered by the constant redraws of the launcher, resulting in a rather disturbing empty home screen at times after re-entering the home screen. This may be however, only affecting my phone, namely the Redmi Note 4G, running on resource-heavy MIUI. Help would be appreciated Re: Developer was quick to attend to the issues. Kudos dev
Continues to be the absolute best. Love the Pixel support but it needs a bit of fine tuning on the Pixel C especially for the desktop when rotated to landscape view. Wish you could show Google app (left swipe) like on the Pixel Launcher, but I understand why you can't. To the person who said this is no different from the Pixel launcher hasn't looked very far. You can make this look like anything you want. 5 stars if the landscape issue in Pixel C is fixed.
Whenever I used to re-install Nova Launcher, I was asked to keep one of the two different presets of either going for swipe to app drawer or button-press to app drawer, which were sort of initials whenever reinstalling Nova Launcher. Now that has been removed. And the rounded dock background, now looks weird. Previously, the rounded dock background was different, and I liked it. This is a kind of rounded dock background which leaves a gap between the screen and the dock background which looks super weird. Please fix this as not everyone wants a Google Pixel Launcher customised homescreen.
This was a 5 star app when I used it on my older devices. I now have an Nvidia Shield K1 running Marshmallow and the app just shows a blank screen. A real pity as I loved the app. I eagerly await a solution. I scored it as one star Update: And the solution came so all is well and back to five stars!
