Expert's Review

"Make your Android look gorgeous"

Reviewed by / Dec 02, 2014

A beautiful, smooth and highly customizable launcher

TeslaCoil Software's Nova Launcher has been around since Android Ice Cream Sandwich but it's been tuned since then, widening its functionality and adapting it to every new Android OS. Nova Launcher is currently one of the most well-balanced launchers on Android regarding amount of features, usability, design and responsiveness.

Tweak it at your whim: amount of home screens, scroll effects, app drawer's grid size, gestures and buttons, icon size... And a zillion more options. Tune it to the limit.

Besides functionality, Nova Launcher has been enhanced regarding both design and performance: it feels neat, polished and smooth equal parts. The only thing missing is a theme store accessible and navigable from the app.

Regardless, one of the best launchers on the market so far.

Developer's original description available here

    It's truly an amazing launcher, with amazing features. However, can you make it an option in one of your future updates, to add icon shadows? And is it possible to change the shadow's color to match the persons color scheme.

    I've tried out several launchers, but I keep coming back to Nova. Was a little faulty in the beginning, but the latest version works flawlessly! Love it!!

    Spruced up an old phone which in turn gave it a new lease of life. Highly recommend.
