This launcher is amazing and works exactly how the description on the play store states it should - I've tried many previously which do not or they are full of ads! The launcher itself is easy to navigate, simple and categorised for the apps. And the aviate search bar is as good as the Google search bar with personal suggestions, but also gives quick links to select entertainment, news, location - all with relevant apps or recent place names in the feed! The choice of wallpaper in the settings is also great and amazing quality definition. However I do not like creating personal widget's to add to your home screen. Overall I am very pleased with the launcher and will be using it for a very long time.
Latest update radically revamped some things. Spaces are gone, and can't be manually set any longer. No more flicker wallpapers or news feeds, and the redundant top bar icons are now gone. So it's been simplified a bit but some of the features that made Aviate unique and appealing are now gone. If you liked it's core launcher functionality without these extras then it's fine. If not, then look for older versions of the app, or give Lucid Launcher Pro a try, its a nice clean launcher from a responsive Dev..
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).
Best Launcher, hands down. Forget what you know about ANY phone's UI. This beats them all. Everything is organized perfectly. First page, 5 or more icons at the bottom. At each unlock this is the default screen and you get a nice view of your wallpaper each and every time you unlock your phone. One swipe to the left gives you categories of apps (automatically categorized!). Pick the categories and apps you use most. Another swipe left gives you all your apps, organized by alpha(!), with very visible distinctions between each starting letter. No more clumsy searching of your app drawer for apps. The only suggestion I have is to make the wallpaper page's gesture of swiping down customizable so I can view the notification bar instead of search.
I've been using this launcher since early 2013, and I do think that it has improved since it's launch. However there are a few things that I think it still needs: widget page/more home screens/smarter "cards." For example, I'd like an easily accessible way to get to my to-do lists, and it makes no sense why the weather doesn't show up on the morning page. There are also tons of other recommendations on Yahoo for Aviate that haven't been addressed yet. Otherwise this is one of the cleanest, most functional launchers out there. Yahoo, Aviate still has a lot of potential.
Simply the best launcher. Very interactive, organized and informative. The only issue is widgets, otherwise this app would have been way above others. I've had to delete all other launchers in my phone including the popular paid ones cus they simply don't match this. Please work on widgets and multiple drawers. Cheers
