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.
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
Easy to customize. Love it. I have tired other app's like this one. This is by far the best one I have used. Very minimal in concept. Easy to organize. The only issue that I have had is that I had to reinstall it due to phone issue and the short cuts to the wallpaper does not work but by going into settings and selecting a new wallpaper it works just fine.
It's a great launcher, but the lack of updates and the lack of providing ways to include widgets in the 'smart stream' panel brings it's rating down. Currently you can only see what Yahoo wants you to see. I'm hoping they'll update the app to extra cards of widgets to be displayed in the smart stream, but after the acquisition i'm not holding my breath....
