Ever since bought by yahoo, not even single customization feature added. All they have done is ruining this app by adding their own content and taking away every possible customization. Widgets, themes, spaces, everything good with this launcher is gone. Really want to use this launcher. Just look at the amount of customisation offered in nova. All 4 and 5 star reviews must be from new users who haven't seen aviate in its original powerful form. Hate you yahoo, a little more every day.
After having used another launcher for more than a year, I relied on online comments saying that Aviate had improved, and gave it another try. I am sorry to report that it's still lacking. Aviate doesn't allow me to choose my preferred search engine as its default, necessitating additional steps in order to get to it. It defaults to Samsung's Internet app for browsing from its excellent search bar rather than allowing me to set the app of my choice. I'll miss Aviate's search bar, which does its work well, but the two concerns above are deal-breakers for me. I've left comments on the launcher's Help area, to no avail.
I really like it and it's so simple, but been simple sometimes means the lake of some other useful functions & ideas, witch some other lunchers have. But even though I like and respect this luncher and the effort that was put into it. Keep it up guys.. Thank You
Great way to organize my most used apps by category for access within two clicks. Loving the news widget. Haven't experienced any bugs in a long time.
I love the concept of the launcher, but it's quite slow on my device which has a snapdragon 810 and 3gb ram. When I press the home button, I have to wait a good 3 seconds for it to load up my most recent screen. I do love the integration of a smart stream though. Also, I would love the ability to change individual icons and have a dynamic calendar icon. The app is also quite resource heavy (about 120 MB of my RAM).
Better than galaxy s5 stock u.i. the worst thing is the hourly notifications from yahoo news articles which are left wing columnists to put it lightly... get rid of that and it's 5 star
