Take Android to the next level So much customization. I like to have only two screens: one for widgets and top apps, and another for miscellany, grouped by purpose. I had run out of room and had a bunch of folders.. with a 5x8 grid, I laid out all my folder contents into columns and it is so pleasing. To boot, home screen gestures make a lot of sense and i couldn't go without them now! Highly recommended.
Huawei Mate 9 3/64 I would love to give 5 stars but found 2 bugs on huawei mate 9 (maybe on other device). 1. Gesture to lock screen is worked well but to unlock using device fingerprint wont work. Must enter password.. 2. Emui app twin icon wont shown on nova's desktop or app drawers. Please fix. Love ur launcher nevertheless
Very good solid app I have used Nova for years and whenever I get a new phone it is one of the first apps that I Install. It works well and has a lot of options for power users. It also allows you to back and restore which is a real bonus when you have to wipe your phone, or if switching from one phone to another saving you lots of time. It's not 100% perfect but it probably is closest to that than any other Android launcher. I have the paid version to support the developers but the free version is also very good.
Is there anything better? The first app I always install when I get a new phone is Nova Launcher. The things that Nova launcher can do compared to GO launcher, Lightning launcher, Smart launcher, KK and even Google launcher is outstanding. Customization down to every aspect of your home screens, folders, app drawers and even has gesture control. Nova 💩's on all the other launchers on the market right now. BUT I still have one issue that Nova hasn't gotten back to me about yet. don't download the beta. Nova email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Great launcher, easy to setup, stable I have several Samsung devices running Android 4.4.2, Android 5 and Android 6 with different versions of the standard Samsung Touch Wiz launcher which is frustrating. Using Nova I can give my devices the same look and feel. I love the App Drawer and the extra config options. I can now run everything off 3 home screens. I recommend trying Nova if you have multiple devices, it greatly improves my Android experience and battery life is not compromised. 18 months on very stable, no issues, brilliant.
Almost Perfect It is not a theme oriented launcher but you can change most everything from the icons size and image to making your screen transition with lots of different effects. I want to change my setting menu background color to dark so it's easy on the eyes and less power consuming. It doesnt seem any app offers this with out using exposed though which is not currently compatible with my version of android so poo. But this is the best launcher I've used so far and ive been through, solo, smart, & action launchers.
