Review from Fraser Harvey Ridout
Smooth I wanted my GS3 to look like stock Android because I don't like touch whiz. This is smoother than touch whiz. However I would like to have the notification add on included in the free version. Smoothest launcher I've used so far.
Without doubt the best. I've tried them all, including the fancy 3D expensive ones. But Nova is the one I always end up with and recommend to friends. If you want productivity speed and reliability then get this. Straight to your apps in a flash. Superb.
Seriously broken after new update. Have had to reboot my phone now 7 times in last 4 hours. Just plain locks up and you are trapped. It freezes entire screen.
Tried helluva lot of launchers and always came back to this one. They do what works, keeping it functional and straightforward (without compromising on customisation options for the OCD folks).
Love using Nova but the fact that the widget resolution is screwed up and overscaled always makes me move back to TouchWiz (yeah I know, fight me). So other than widgets it's recommendable
Every part of it i love but there's one bug that continuously disturbes me... When i am in launcher home screen or in app dock my volume keys don't work. Other than that i love the app
Tried this one and a few other premium launchers out there and this one is by far my favorite. Tons of customization, which is one reason Android is vastly superior to Apple, and almost all the settings you could want. There are a steady stream of updates
