    Yahoo Aviate Launcher's review

    Published: 2014-05-07, by Manu Galvez.

    An organized, routine-adaptative and beautiful homescreen replacement

    • Innovative
    • Auto-categorizes apps
    • Phonebook-style app drawer
    • Spaces: homescreen changes throughout the day/context
    • Just a few themes, appearance customizations
    • Just a few performance tweaks

    "Welcome aboard"

    Getting close to people who are smarter than you can ease things for you. Aviate Beta takes that idea and applies it to your phone: an intelligent launcher that simplifies your homescreen.

    Aviate Beta is one of the most innovative Android launchers you may find out on the market. It puts upside down the way you organize apps and widgets and the way you interact with them.

    First, it auto-categorizes your installed apps and put them into "collections" (work, music, social, news, games...). Of course, you can set them at your whim after Aviate's proposal. The app drawer looks like a vertically scrollable bookshelf where each collection is a shelf.

    Secondly, there are the "spaces". Aviate automatically re-organizes your homescreen and make it look like Google Now card-like layout. The good point is the layout changes throughout the day depending on the time and the situation you are supposed to be. For example, there's a preset space called "Morning" which, obviously, pops up only in the morning and highlights those apps, widgets and info you always launch/check in the morning (calendar, news, weather apps, email, event edition...). Edit and switch spaces or wait for Aviate to do it automatically.

    Finally, there's the A-Z Apps section which is actually the app drawer sort by alphabetically. Scroll down or tap on the letter to jump to it as if you were browsing a contact on your phonebook.

    Those are the added-value features of Aviate. What makes it stand out from others. However, it falls shorter on themes, appearance customization and performance tweaks (still in beta though). It is what it is. And it's great already. Highly recommended.
