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.
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.
I can't believe it Was very happy with the launcher. Very fast. Customizable...buttttt you can't rearrange apps in the app drawer.... whyyyy nova whyyyyyyy. It just ruined the whole launcher. Everything else amazing. You have so much to customize. But u can't even put the apps in the order that you want. Bought the prime version thinking it might be a prime feature but I was wrong. Even the stock launcher has this function. I mean you would just assume nova would. If you bring can do it with the next update then u get 5stars.
Fingerprint scanner to unlock the lock screen stops showing up after updating to Marshmallow on LG V10. We noticed that it is somehow connected to Nova Launcher's double tap to lock gesture of which after you double tap to turn off the screen, if you try to wake the V10 up with either the power button or double tap, 95% of the time the fingerprint unlock will not show up but whatever you set as the secondary lock would (pattern, pin, tap, etc). But if we revert back to the stock LG UX launcher, the fingerprint to unlock prompt always work. Kindly look into this as the fingerprint unlock was working perfectly with Nova Launcher on Lollipop. Thank you and also for your wonderful launcher.
awesome, have a suggestion have been using adw for 3 yrs.. shifted to nova prime now.. can u plz allow us to protect our locked desktop by a pin or password.. this used to happen in adw.. so instead of just showing us the pad lock on desktop (which can be unlocked by any other user also), let us use a pin so that only WE can unlock the desktop in order to rearrange icons or do whatever we want.. also the same with NOVA SETTINGS, let us lock them with the same pin or password so only we can access them
