    Starting with a 4 hopefully to go up. Although the swipe as you all said with Android 10 not quite ready. I just can't figure out how to close all open windows in the background. Other then that I've tried this launcher a few times on different devices. Fire 7 couldn't get it too take a ZTE Z worked fine. Now on Motorola E working great other than my one issue. So thanks devs for your hard work.

    prime apk Love it! I have been using the full version since 2013. Tried it then. Upgraded to Prime and never looked back! This launcher is great for anyone. I've had old phones and new phones over the years and Nova will make your phone have the latest features possible for whatever phone you can afford at the time. And that's what makes this launcher so special to me. Also I'm a crazy customizer too! My layouts aren't basic and doesn't look like the average person's phone. And I also love that as well!

    prime A friend suggested this UI and i haven't looked at others since. Great Launcher n UI. Easy and Consice, Attractive, Clean and Efficient. In my opinion the free version is fantastic! I used it for the last 2 years, trouble free on my old phone and loved it! Going Full ver. today! Thanks Nova! You Gal's n Guy's Rock💯! Keep on keepin' on!

    apk Do you have an old android phone? Then this is the best app for getting features that are only available for newer androids. It will also give gestures in the pro mode, but use Fluid Navigation Gestures for disabling navigation bars and enabling the new gestures. I just loved the combo, and I recommend to anyone who have an old phone and android like me (Mine is a Blackberry Priv android V 6.0). I'm very much impressed by this app. Hats off to the creators

    pro So far it's free and good. I've been using this launcher for a while and I appreciate having it to use for free. I got it because another app for making icon packs worked with Nova. Since then I've kept it because it's just an all around good launcher. I'm half scared to give a good review because every time I like an app that's free and ad free, as soon as I leave a good review they change everything I like and either put in ads or make you pay for features. Please don't do that, guys.

    7 Overall, this app is great, I would however, love an option to disable rotation of the whole screen, and instead only rotate the icons when in landscape view, right now, I'd say it stretches everything and doesn't really look good in that orientation.

  7. Jonathan-avatar



    настройка A cool app and love the macro features so I can create shortcuts. For instance I set a Bluetooth shortcut to go directly to my list of connected devices. Placed it right next to my media app. Saves me from Having to go to settings, find Bluetooth, then long press or navigate another menu. Very cool and highly customizable!

    prime скачать бесплатно This app is great! Unlike other apps, it doesn't make ur phone lag & I've never seen an add on this!(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*.✧ Also you can choose any photo unlike other apps that already come and you can't change them... I recommend this app if you are bored with your icons and it works on any phone! (Coming from a fellow android user(◠‿・)—☆*.✧ )

    prime скачать apk Generally a good app with high customization service. A major flaw I have with the app is that it requires a fix such that it won't ask for accessibility service to be enabled... I reinstalled the app as I was told it mitigates the issue; however, the issue returned after a few weeks again.

    backup It's great for customizing your phone and bringing a new look and feel to even older phones. My only complaint is that the home screen does not rotate the image smoothly to landscape. This happens also when I use an app in landscape and then go to the home screen. The background shows up with large portion of the wallpaper showing black where it should have resized to fill the screen. This is on a razer phone 2 that comes preloaded with nova launcher

    This is the best launcher ever! Although I have some suggestions: 1. A scrollable widget page, like in Microsoft Launcher; 2. More gestures, like swiping left, right, etc; 3. Presets. It's annoying when you want it to be like the Pixel or Samsung launcher, so implementing this is great. Other than that, this is a great launcher. :)

    This launcher is the best launcher I have ever downloaded!! It has a lot of customization that you can do to your phone. The feature that I hope will be added is the 'double click to turn off' feature that is included in samsung new update. When I have this launcher as default, I cant use that function anymore. If this feature is added this launcher will be much more better😁.

    Since android 11 it has stopped working all the time! And people are reporting this and you guys are doing nothing about it, not even a response back! A great pity, because like many and I too, we have the prime version and paid for it! Please do something about it and make it work on Android 11 and later the higher versions too

    I've been using this app for several years now across several devices... I can't say enough good about it. There is a learning curve to get the most out of it, but it's not overwhelming. Worth the money for the premium app. I was not paid by the devs or rewarded in any way (except for loving the app). Get this launcher and actually enjoy your device.

    Mike Island, Google SC ctos harder to customize when every update which ducks cud customization is easy made Droid differ freedom to do it. Rooting the phone no problem. They gave u adt to help. Now it's about security. I haven't seen root files of uprooted in long time and with ADrd 10 can't even C files in Android folder on sdcard. It looks empty but their there. J.S. maybe that can't fix nova for Adrd 11. SCKS... Linux supposed be open source platform

    Would like to report a bug when using Nova in Android 10 (on Cubot Note 7). I can tap the square button to see all previously used apps, but there's no way to shut down one or all of them. Just says 'Quik Step has stopped working'. EDIT: Almost a month later, and still no solution offered, apart from an automated Email basically saying "It's not our fault"...

    I've been using this for years and I think it's the best in the store. Only issue I have found so far is the homepage sometimes just freeze and I can not press any of the icons on the Home sceen. I always had to restart nova by pinch with 2 fingers press Settings,scroll to the bottom and then Kill&Restart nova. Everything works again after that. Fix this issue please. From Samsung Galaxy S8+

    Second time I downloaded this app. And only because I wanted to use certain icons... Does all I need it to except gestures ( have to pay for those) but it warned me beforehand that this would be the case. I'm not upset about it. Overall excellent experience.

  19. Warren King-avatar

    Love this launcher BUT recently every time an app updates via the Play Store, the icon gets removed from my folders or homepage. This is REALLY annoying as I have to manually add the app icons back. And sometimes I can't remember which app updated, only that one has because there's an empty space where an icon used to be. This is on a Realme X7 Pro. Hope they can fix this. Edit: took one more star off now as the issue is still not resolved months later. Super annoying.

    Organizing apps in apps drawer is very time consuming. Instead of drag and drop, I can add apps into their own folder by scrolling through my 100+ apps and check them one by one, there isn't even search function. I will stick to my default ASUS Launcher for now just to note, I own the prime version.

  21. Cindy Herrin-avatar

    I really like this launcher. It is my favorite of any I use. It allows me to adjust how my screens fit together, how big or small my icons are, and I can set the grid sizes for my screens. Also, I choose my home page, and can add or delete pages. I love the cube style of going from page to page.

    This app finally helped me make my homescreen worth looking. When I got my phone for the first time I didn't even feel like using it because of how bad the UI was. I don't want to sound like a choosing beggar, but it would be great if you add an option for serif fonts to it as well. I mean, Redmi's Themes has it so obviously it's possible.

  23. Backlists-avatar



    I have used Nova launcher for years now, on multiple handsets. Currently on an S21 ultra. Nova has always functioned perfectly, and it can make your phone look truly beautiful. It provides a minimalistic, functional and fast interface, gestures are useful, the compatible icon sets look lush, and it's customisability is incredible. The only criticism I have is that the double-tap and swipe gestures will confuse themselves with swipe only, maybe 1/10 times. For me it's a 5 star app regardless.

  24. Sandheep-avatar



    I just installed nova launcher 30 mins back. Half way through, I started liking the free version and I wanted to contribute/appreciate the meticulous work by opting for paid subscription. But after the payment, subscription didn't get activated but my money got deducted. I have mailed you the details.

    This is by far THE BEST launcher for Android. It reminds me of GoogleNow which was my favorite back when I had a Note 3. This isn't exactly fancy but the customizable layout makes using my phone far more efficient. It even allows widgets from other launchers. It's simply amazing, great job TeslaCoil! 💯

    As of March 2021, others have written about the smoothness of switching apps with nova launcher. I'm in the same boat with app switching slightly lagging if I go back to home screen and then choose a new app or folder to open. I have the navigation bar gestures enabled. Screen very briefly flashes white and nothing happens. Have to tap on the app again for it to actually open. Still think nova is still better than OneUI, but very very annoying!

    I and the wife both have Pixel 4a 5g's. We love the phones other than Google's attempt to tell us what we can an can't have on our home screen by not being able to disable the At a Glance feature on the phone. I have tried this app for a week now so far this is by far the best launcher we have tried. It solves the At a Glance problem and disables the google search bar at the bottom that you also can't move or get rid of! App is very lite and have noticed no bugs so far.

    I've used Nova for years without problems. Most recently I was using Smart Launcher, but decided to switch back to Nova. I don't know whether it's the fact I'm running Android 11 on a Pixel 3, but it is now TERRIBLY glitchy. I frequently must restart my phone. Folders black out, gestures stop working are they most prominent issues. I've uninstalled the app.

    The app is good doesn't give any battery issue. But from past 3 days i am experiencing a bug. When i on my phone the recent screen stays already there with the nova app opened and when i close it the screen becomes empty it just displays the wallpaper. The back key doesn't work. I have to off it then on it again. Please resolve this issue. I will give 5 stars then

  31. の神カーミット-avatar



    It's been one of the cleanest yet most fully featured launchers for years now. The one thing I wish it had was ability to choose other search providers or remove search entirely from app search. I don't use it, and if I did, it'd be DDG.

  32. María Paula Cardona-avatar

    I can't believe this could be real. If you want to put a widget on the homescreen, Nova "asks" you that you need to share all the info showed in the widget with them. If you reject the deal, the don't allow you to put the widget. Unbelievable >:( . Great app, bad policies.

    I love this launcer and I use it from the very beginning. But unfortunately now on my Pixel 5 Screen Lock widget doesn't work stable. I have to reboot my phone to make it work again. I'll give again my 5* after an app update. Thank you very much.

    I have the paid version and year after year I regret it more and more. They keep changing it and making it less user friendly. Most recently took away the option to move an app to the bin from moving it around on the home screen. Most widgets don't even work with it. Waste of two or three bucks.

    Pretty fast and impressive with nice free features. However Nova doesn't need to continually ask for my location. Remove the unnecessary battery and data drain from asking my location and I'll give it 5 stars !. I will have great delight over the next few weeks in spoofing my location for Nova to truly have a 'location workout'. Enjoy the world tour.....

    I've been using this launcher for years and have always LOVED it! But, for the last couple months (at least), if my phone dies, it won't retain Nova Launcher as my default launcher. Even when I go to the settings at startup and select Nova as my default, it still switches back to my standard home screen if I swipe up to go home or exit out of all my open apps. Please fix this, it's been going on for far too long to not have been taken care of already, since plenty of others have mentioned it.

  37. Adam-avatar



    Various glitches caused me to contact the Devs over the years, reply time is A*, but follows the pattern of "that's coz of Google changing X, etc". Finger-pointing and evasion are a template for replies, a pattern. Asking for help has consistently been met with an almost standoffish tone and comes off as unwelcoming. After years of emails, I honestly believe feedback is not welcome and support requests are at best dealt with reluctantly. Alot to like, but the app is not the problem.

    I've been using this launcher for years (paid version) .But lately, it always keep crashing. Becoming incompatible with my Huawei Mate 10. I guess it didn't suit well with this phone. Sadly now, I need to change my launcher to Smart Launcher 5 to solve the issue since nova launcher developer didn't update this app frequently.

    Samsung S21ultra It's an awesome app amd the ampumt of customization is phenomenal. BUT if you run a ton of app like i do and have background feature apps running then the OneUi gets confused sometimes and i could see a crash log in my s21ultra settings. So all and all its up to you if you an deal with the errors that oneUi and Mova have

    Still better than oneui, although Samsung has improved oneui over the years, it still feels 'heavy' to use, with nova launcher, it seems much more responsive and animations work much better and look and feel great (like they should) on my s20fe. Awesome stuff

    I would've rated it 5 stars but the it continues to lag while switching b/w apps. I use paid version but still no good. Swipe up gesture doesn't work sometimes and app drawer closes all by itself sometimes. Kindly fix it with an update or something. I'm using s20+

    I don't review things really unless I love the product and they ask me to review at a good moment. I went out of my way to review this 5-stars. Periodically I do try to use/find other launchers because I love change, need it. This is it. The only one I enjoy. It doesn't support Flipboard Briefing and honestly that's probably a plus. Highly recommended from me 👍🏻

  43. Tobias Söderblom-avatar

    Definitely the best launcher, there are many reasons for why it's known as the best. Allows so much customisation and depth that wouldn't normally be possible with default launchers and many other third party launchers. Definitely recommend. The only issue I've had is that when enabling auto screen orientation, some widgets get cut off in landscape mode. To fix this I've had to make them bigger, but that takes up more space on the screen. Other than that, it's been prefect so far!

    Loved the app originally and used it for years but after the latest update it got totally glitchy and buggy, i got a brand new phone two days ago and installed to give another try and my phone got totally laggy, apps taking forever to open, my music app closing at random without me even touching the phone, and when exitng an app it goes to the origianl launcher screen before it remembers thats its set as the default im hurt, I used to love this app

    Installing on a replacement phone, same model as I had before, and I cannot get the app drawer to show me the apps I have installed. It only shows a blank screen and "search apps". What is happening? I enjoyed the app drawer feature immensely but now it isn't functioning as before.

  46. Alex-avatar



    Love this launcher. One small issue, when I open multitasking and close all apps it reverts back to the stock samsung launcher home screen instead of nova even though I have Nova set as my default. I have to hit the home button to then get nova back. On S21+ with the latest software.

    Perfect, until recently. For some reason within the last coiple months or so the it has just stopped showing me the icons for my recently used apps section. It's a minor issue, but it has been bugging since it started, and there has yet to be a fix.

    I have used this launcher for many years on multiple devices with few issues that were readily fixed. So far my S10 is trying to use the default launcher but flips back to Nova quickly. I think it is the Samsung default shell that doesn't like Nova, but I do. Until this is fixed, it is a minor inconvenience. I fully recommend this launcher in the premium if possible, it's much easier to customize and use.

  50. Asia-avatar



    I've been using this app for years now and can honestly say that I have been consistently pleased. This is amazing, and you can tell they care about their customers because of how many options they have for free, and they don't bog you down with ads.

  51. ClaytonTDM-avatar



    Awesome app! I have used this before and it was great. And it still is! My default launcher is really bland, so I searched "Launcher" about 2 years ago and found this! Would definitely recommend this app. [I am on a Lenovo Smart Tab M8]

    Oh people and star ratings. It's always a 1 if there is anything close to an issue. They say they've used it for years and leave a 1 star. I can guarantee they never left a 5 star review while enjoying its features and benefits. Nevertheless, rant aside, my launcher has recently started to crash. I've had maybe 3-4 crashes within the last 2-3 days. There hasn't been an update so I'm not sure what's going on 🤷‍♂️

  53. Val-avatar



    Been meaning to install this for a while . . . only wish I'd done it earlier. Simply amazing and when you incorporate the compatible icon packs - WOW ! You end up with a fone that you can tweak so much to suit. Mine's a Samsung and it has made it look so much better. The developer has done a great job and I am gonna pay for the prime to unlock those little extras.

    Great app. In the last day my phone auto launches default UI and once I use the two finger gesture to pull up Nova settings it goes back to Nova launcher. Nova is set to the default launcher. Other than this minor inconvenience, I love Nova launcher!

  55. Jonathan-avatar



    Used it for several months before leaving a review. I am very satisfied with this launcher. So good and problem free that I never need to go into it again after the initial set up. I prefer a very clean, very minimalist, fully blacked out theme on my phone and this has let me acheave that perfectly. Free version has excellent features to the point I didn't feel the need to buy the full version.

    I really love the app... However I'm having all sorts of issues since my S10+ updated to Android 11. Sometimes my phone switches me back to the standard home screen instead of nova's and it's really annoying... Also not sure if this is related to Nova somehow, but my default spell correction keeps switching from Google to Samsung's...




    i've been using nova for a minute, it was great 6 or 7 years ago when i first tried it and it's still great now. tons of features to keep everything just the way i like it, and it's all super simple to set up. one of the rare apps i didn't mind spending money on

    This app is extremely customizable, but for some reason the menus for settings still look like they're from 2015. You guys gotta refresh the app with a more modern look - and while you're at it, add an option to change the font for the name of a folder once it's opened, it's stuck to Condensed and is unchangeable and it's a bit annoying.

    This is a great app. It's very useful. You can costumize and design your phone. It lets you arrange and style your apps. Ever since I used this app, my phone has looked so much more organized and neat. There is so much you can do. The only downside to this, is that it is pretty complicated. A lot of buttons and things that can be confusing and overwhelming. But once you get used to it you can easily change things on your phone by using this app. Overall... I'm impressed!

    Great app! Seems to run seamlessly without any major battery drainage. Big plus for me is the scrollable dock icons. Feature i use most is icon customization. Once i set this launcher to my liking, i often forget it's even installed. Haven't run into any bugs so far. Have had the app installed for a few years or could be longer. It just seems to be the norm. Many customizable features. Enjoy creating my own lock screens and home screens to compliment how this app is set up on my device.

    Does everything it needs to. Improvement possible: you cannot choose a different search engine than Google. I want to use duckduckgo. And in App drawer search, you cannot change the background colour of search. I have white-only app icons, and you cannot differentiate them from the white search background.

    Installed it on my android car stereo and must say it looks and works great. If Nova Launcher gets more work towards landscape orientation devices, car stereos will be pretty at last! I made my custom CarPlay-like icons and the stereo looks very nice in the car. I can point some things so the developers can check. First of all, we need antialiasing on the home screens! Icons and text look a bit weird now, so please fix this! Second, please allow icons to be larger than 150%, so that we can render larger icons on the car stereo! Maybe 300% ? Thank you, I hope you take these notes in consideration

    Reccomended to me by my partner who got it from their IT dad. Great app!!! Its been way better than default. I don't even have premium, but I will be investing in it when I have the money. You don't need premium for it to be much better than default.

    I've used this launcher for almost two years and liked it but lately it's started to crash and the features are acting glitchy. Very disappointed. May come back later if they fix the issues.

    Excellent launcher! Have been using it for years, never looked for a different one. Prompted to leave this review today as I faced the issue after switching the phone, and support resolved it quickly, another positive experience!

    I have been using this app from several years, and it was great. But recent updates have broken it. I am using One Plus 8 Pro, and the app hangs randomly. The home button, and the task switch button stops working, in any app randomly. The back button works, but stucks before coming back to the launcher home screen. This happens in no specific app, but in any app randomly.

    Switched to a new phone running android 9.0. Installed Nova and everything works fine except when I try to bring up the recent apps list / overview. Then the built in quickstep launcher will stop working and Im not able to see my recent apps list, Does ANYONE know how to fix this? PLEASE? Thanks.

    This app gives full customization options but the 2 reasons to deduct 2 stars are, 1. When you want to navigate from home screen to app screen, you need to swipe up from a specific point (which is very bottom of the screen) where as i was able to switch between app and home screen by just swiping up anywhere on the homescreen on my one UI 2.5 2. I have installed a latest version but can not make folders on app screen.

    On Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, sometimes the app switching is glitched. It sometimes doesn't happen quite right, resolution changes, and there's delay. It really kills the experience of a smooth usage. I really like Nova, but if these little things are not fixed I have to go with Samsung's one UI as the only viable option. It sucks, but at least it is smooth.

    This launcher is awesome! You can customize almost everything! A little feature which is missing is that you cannot change the font of App Labels in the app drawer, and also, to open the App Drawer, you need to swipe from the bottom of the screen (compared to other launchers where you can swipe up from anywhere and launch the App Drawer), but overall, this launcher is great!

    I love novas customization features and I've used it since having an android. However, their lack of gesture navigation support has me using Samsungs launcher. It's 2021, gesture nav has been around for a minute, there are plenty of ways to implement it, and there are plenty of launchers that can effectively use it. They blame oems for the lack of support, yet will not adapt to Googles navigation standard, which has been around for two releases now.

    I really loved this app but I had an issue that spoiled my experience ... When I choose an image as a wallpaper I choose "home and lock screen" option but when I choose it the wallpaper just apply on home screen only... Strange thing is lock screen wallpaper changing to anther pic that I didn't choose Phone: infinix hot s3 Android 8 Notice .. i also using prime nova

    This is my favorite launcher. Unfortunately, it doesn't play well with Android 11s gesture navigation system. When using Nova launcher, the issue I have ia within apps, the bottom portion of the screen becomes unresponsive to touch. So, interactions within apps that are occured near the bottom edge are effectively inoperable. The issue only persists when using gesture navigation rather than 3-button navigation. Until this is fixed, I will just use the stock pixel launcher.

    Love the app, but it's currently broken with MIUI 12.2.4. Recent apps tray won't open, some apps behave abnormally (Facebook Messenger, floating picture from YouTube and Twitch), as well as overlapping notifications (notifications from different apps stuck together in one box). When I switch back to default launcher, everything is fine, but I don't want to have to do that. Will change review back to 5 stars if this gets fixed.

  77. M30WZK3RZ-avatar



    There are many bugs. Although I like the experience and settings, there are major bugs ruining everything. When I try to change an app's icon, it redirects me to One UI, not saving my changes. When I hit an app's back button (not the one in the navigation bar), It will also redirect me to One UI. Please fix this as it is ruining some of the UI in Nova Launcher.

    Always been a huge fan. Something I notices since android 11(which I think has some hits and misses) If I have apps open and close them all at one, my home screen becomes becomes the default launcher until I press the home button and it istantly turns back to Nova. I'm on a Galaxy Note 10+. Anyone else experiencing this? It also has just started today. Had Android 11 for over a week. Keep up the good work

    App keeps crashing. This never used to happen before. It's been many years since I've used Android and this has always been my go to. I'm looking at other launchers to see if they are more stable. Notifications rarely work. Apps disappear when exting an app but comeback quickly. Still annoying. I've always remembered nova for it's smoothness. Now I have to keep resetting my phone when Nova freezes up or gets buggy. Admins please fix.

    Duplicate icons!! Emailed support 2 weeks ago, no response whatsoever! They have the money so no interest in fixing anything. If you get duplicate icons in folders like I have there is nothing you can do about it! Very poor support!!! Well a year on and even more duplicate app icons and no workaround or fix! Come on nova, sort it out!!

    Love this launcher and been using it for so long! However lately it has been crashing quite frequently by reverting to my default launcher (S10+) by simply clicking the home button. Then if I click home again it reverts back to Nova. Quite an annoying inconvenience. Mind you that to me this issue never happened before

    After the Android 11 update on my Xperia 1-II device, the App Switcher button causes issues. The last active app freezes it's last screen and the display shows it instead of the App Overview. If I toggle to a next app, the screen remains "frozen" until I return to the previous app and then initiate the change once again. Happens regardless of App load - has happened with 2 opened apps and 7 as well. I hope this can get fixed soon, as there is no issue with my default Launcher. Thanks!

    It is a great app and a great replacement for any default launchers, although It does have some issues with basic system settings. Setting like double tap to sleep and the option to swipe down anywhere for the notification panel dont work because Nova controls your home screen. Still very nice, a few minor issues though.

    I wish I could rate this app 6 stars, really. It made such a diffence to my phone. Not only customisation is amazing, I downloaded this app because scrolling through forums I saw it was good for sluggish mobiles! Guess what, it did speed up my phone! I had factory rest phone twice to no avail: it was a slow sluggish mobile. After installing and using this launcher I had no more issues!

    Best launcher I had. I even have the paid version. But recently I have some trouble with the app, everytime I reboot my phones (Samsung Galaxy A10s and Samsung Galaxy A12), it reverts back to the devices' stock launcher -- One UI, tapping the home button enables Nova again. Upon checking my phones' settings, the default launcher is unselected, so I had to do the same procedure everytime I reboot my phones.

    Best launcher on the market. But as others have said, on Samsung phones (S20 FE in my case) it reverts back to the stock launcher at times when using the navigation buttons. Pressing 'home' again gets you back to Nova, but it's turning into a bit of a hassle... :( Edit: there is a fix posted in Nova Launcher's official Discord, check it out!

    Lightweight, Without adds, Plenty of settings, and with an excellent backup - restore system. Maybe the best launcher for Android 8.1. The only that would be nice to have (also all other launchers don't have) is a workaround to automatically fix some icons of SD card apps. Right now I have to restart the launcher to make the grayed icons work. If it had a delay on starting the launcher (until the SD card apps get detected) I believe it would solve it. Issue on all launchers not just NovaLaunch

    Found this last year and been using it since on my S10. Incredible customisation options that allows you to set-up your phone how YOU want to use it and not dictated by companies that don't listen to their consumers *cough cough* Samsung *cough* Apps like this could teach such companys a thing or two about what people really want to see and do on their phones.

  91. Zealous-avatar



    This app is just.. it's crazy as to how they provide such a premium experience for free! I normally see other launchers have some hiccups and borderline make it an ad fest this is a beautifully smooth experience. I hate the Google pixel launcher due to how you can't move the peek widget so this was an absolute life saver ❤️ definitely consider donating, this is a perfect 10

    My favourite launcher and has the most customisation. Usually a 5 star rating but after I updated my Samsung to one UI 3.0 Nova has become a hot mess. Apps Continuously crash and it takes two times to click on an app to get it to open. The home screen flickers and jumps around every 10 or so seconds. Also my phone is completely laggy with Nova on as my default launcher. Tried it again a few weeks after and it's still a mess. Sad because this is my favourite launcher and it's unusable

    so I explored every feature for 1 whole hour... and it was awesome.. I was able to make custom icons for apps by tap and holding the icon/logo and a edit button will pop up and tap the image and you could change it! and many features like sliding dock bar, hide dock bar, black page for wallpaper viewing, and many more!!! I'll be back after making a video on it :)

    So far not bad, but with having tried 5 different launchers, I have to conclude that an all close button must either be a premium feature or only an original launcher feature. On my original launchers of all my devices (Samsung, Lenovo and LG), when using the change window button I can easily force all open windows to close in a single click. But on the five different launchers I've tried, none have that feature and I have to swipe each one away to remove them all. But so far not bad. I like the ability to fully customize the layout of the home screen from the original 5x4 to 8x6. Even my Samsung Galaxy only had max 6x6 to utilize the newer 2410x1080 screens. This one allows me to go over that not to forget to mention, the ability to change or remove icon sizes and their labels. I have yet to bump into an ad unlike the other launchers I tried. p.s. I normally like the Samsung default One Home Launcher, but my newest phone is no longer a Samsung. I'm using a UmiDigi Bison and for the cost of a quarter of a Samsung Galaxy premium device, I can get same specs by trying the UmiDigi Bison... so far so good, but I hated their launcher which is why I am trying the Nova Launcher.

    Quite incredible... Samsung should take notes. I think it's amazing how incredibly easy and great looking this launcher is and how fluid and quicker it makes the phone in relation to opening and closing apps and just accessing what you want.I had heard about this launcher a long time ago but it is so much more better now and I'm about to pay to get the full version. There's absolutely no question about it you should be downloading this now. INSTALL IT!!!

    Great App - Have used it for years. . Three recent bugs are frustrating over the past month, possibly related to a Samsung UI update. Firstly, the "overview" or third button is not working - can't see the apps that were previously opened. Secondly, pressing the home key, screen defaults back to Samsung One UI despite Nova Launcher being the default App. Thirdly, integration with Nova Google assistant - swiping left from the home screen to get to google feed is intermittently broken.

    This was working great for so long and now for some reason there's this bug that isn't allowing you to open the screen to close apps. (the one to force close apps that you swipe from the left side of the screen). This needs fixed asap.

    This app is simply great and suits my needs. The last android update on navigation bar had nothing to do with the developers of this app (which they clarified first thing when I opened the app after realizing the bug). Wonderful app overall and very thoughtful people behind it. Five stars, no doubt. P.s.: Navigation on my phone is back to normal.

    Absolutely GREAT! I use it on my TracFone LG K31 Rebel and gives me what I want for customization, except for one thing. I miss the "Carousel" effect I had on my LG Rebel 4. It was a pleasing way to transition between screens. HINT: Add "carousel" effect for future builds.

    The best of many launchers I tested. I've just updated my tablet and most launchers (including ADW which I was using) now don't seem to support "save to home screen" from within Chrome. NOVA does and I was also able to import my settings from ADW so that saved me a huge amount of work. Works well and very customisable.

    Overall Nova launcher is really good! I have the prime version and it's easily the best launcher available. However it is not well optimized for Android 11 and has a lot of bugs I'm using the S21 ultra and a lot of gesture navigation has a lot of lag and random crashing. Sometimes when in the app switcher I'm not able to select an app to go back into it'll simply crash and go back to the homepage. Hopefully you guys can fix this!

    Having issues where the launcher suddenly stops working, doesn't allow me to switch between apps while on the home screen and keeps Google Now from launching. Started having issues on 02/06/2021.

    Simply remarkable. 😉 Nova allows me to take customizing my smartphone's screens to another level; unlike the default Home Launcher, Nova grants me the ability to modify the size, color and appearance of the fonts, icons, and folders on my screens; I can even edit the names of my apps and alter my desktop grid, its icon layout, and the dock. Such little details can make a big difference in personalizing my device...One suggestion, tho: Could y'all make it possible to install new font types? 😁

    Weird ! G play store not showing updates. Found update on aptoid and afterwards my nova settings were totally screwed up. I had to delete and redownload everything including prime.

    "Currently, Nova sorts all apps and folders alphabetically in the drawer, and there isn't a way to customize this behavior." Not sure how much effort would it take to implement this feature but I belive this feature is missing. Launchers are all about giving users extra power to customise things in variety of orders and shapes. I hope someone from your team will look into this.

    Breathing easy Every new android device gets Nova Launcher before anything else. Yhis makes everything so much neater and easier to find. I love having my app drawer right there, control of my icons and my night mode. When i went looking for a new launcher to replace the default, everyone said that Nova was the best and they were correct. I'll never use another launcher.

    Better for customizing than your average launcher, how ever I recommend an app that does not have you make the changes again each day. I keep losing half my widgets and just creating the homescreen pages for the lost ones over and over is a huge drag

  108. Jessica C-avatar

    Jessica C


    Long time user and up until recently I'd have given 5 stars but with the one UI update it now crashes and hangs all the time. The fact that there are so many similar complaints and no fix from the developer is really disappointing. Heck I'd pay for it again if they came out with a new version that worked.

    I like this launcher, starting from Samsung J2, Redmi 4a, 6a, 6, and now 9C 😆 many times my account has been lost and I always buy nova prime hhh. In my opinion, the default launcher never gives freedom of customization, I found a bug when using gestures for recent apps, because it can't, maybe because it collides with the default features of the phone, but that's not a problem, i hopefully the developer will always update this launcher for all generations of Android in the future.... aamiin

  110. TurboTech-avatar



    It seems buggy. I've always used Nova but as soon as I upgraded to a Pixel 4a the launcher does not seem smooth. Such as when I gester to go back or when I go to previous apps it ain't smooth. Not sure if it's me or what. Still the best launcher thou. If your new to this always go with Nova.

  112. Brandon Ward-avatar

    Brandon Ward


    Really really needs an update. Last few updates pushed through a change that breaks the multi task button after a reboot. You have to remove and reset the default launcher to fix it. I don't reboot that often, but I'm sure others do, and it's a PIA. Please fix!

  113. Lee-avatar



    Used for years. Great level of customisation mostly without bloat (though Sesame is unnecessary). Transitions between recent apps on a EMUI 10 Honor phone is ugly and doesn't function properly. Edit: visiting recent apps then pressing O (Home) then opening recent apps again (while using NL) displays the wrong recent app in the center of the screen (last used). Repeatedly pressing square (recent apps) does correctly cycle the most recent app but all use of recent apps results in glitchy visuals.

  114. John Sinclair-avatar

    John Sinclair


    Probably the best launcher out there. I don't normally like to use custom launchers because of ads and how they normally slow the phone down but this doesn't have those problems. I used this with custom made iOS 14 icons and a live wallpaper app that I can't name on this review to make my Galaxy S8 look like an iPhone XS/11/12. It also works with custom icon packs like the one I'm using now which I created myself for my phone. And you can rename apps.

    Hey!! I love the launcher very much but the Google search bar widget is not working. Whenever I tap on it, it launches Nova Search instead of Google App! I have tried different options but they don't work. My device is Realme 3. Hope you fix this problem!

  116. Legend-Kel'Thuzad-avatar



    Broken on Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus. You may want to fix that. I've constantly been setting it as default and something is untoggling the default launcher and constantly resetting it back to the Samsung Launcher. Please code something into the app to force the Nova Launcher as default. I'm done. I'll uninstall until Android 11. I've toggled and u untoggled every setting. It's not my job to fix the app that's the developer's job.

    One of the best purchases I've ever made. I'm still using my Galaxy S7 (Android 8.0) with no complaints. It has extended the life of my phone by having features that I still don't see newer phones have. I'm going to run this thing into the ground!

    Worked great until... For the last week since my phone did a latest system update, when waking up the phone and unlocking there's a huge delay in the screen coming up, like it had to launch again. Not sure what's it going on. It's send to have seen issue when trying to walk up the phone sometimes and it will take seconds for the pin or finger print unlock to appear.

    Love it. Great customizations. My only feedback notes are: sometimes the home screen needs to refresh when you back out of an app. It takes half a second, but it does interrupt fluidity of the phone. Second, add Google discover or content page option.

    Have had nova launcher prime for years and on many phones. I just got a galaxy S21 and there's a super weird bug when leaving an app and selecting an app on the home screen, it does a weird whole screen animation like it's going to open the app but it doesn't. You have to select the app again. If this gets fixed I'll change my review and redownload but for now looks like I need another launcher replacement.

  121. kbcole1021-avatar



    I've used this shell almost since I started using an android device. When I get a look at the native UI I'm always surprised at how limited everything seems. I can't imagine doing without the customizations and behaviors I've created with this app.

    Have used and recommended this app for years now and it's always the first thing I install on every phone. I had previously left a 2 star review as it was giving me problems but have discovered that it was a phone update (MIUI 12) that was causing the problems and not Nova. Soz 😄

    Omg! I bought a revvl 5G and the lower one third of the home screen was totally taken up by the Google search bar which you could not disable or remove. consequently all my app icons were very small because there just wasn't room, even when I set them to large size they would not go large enough to really be seen well. I was on the verge of returning this phone when I found this launcher it is exceptional

    Good launcher and easy to multitask using gesture, specific to creating gesture for recent apps with Samsung Note 10.

    Does everything I need it to, and looks just the way I want things to look. I wish it still had persistant notification numbers (remembering how many unread messages I have, for example) but I know that had to be cut due to a Google change. Very satisfied over here :)

    I have been using this app for years with no issues and have loved it however over the last few weeks it has stopped working.

I have switched to Poco Launcher and have had no issues since.

    Just downloaded it. Still trying it out but so far so good :) I'm new to the customization scene here so this may be old news but from watching reviews, I've heard that nova doesn't support android full-screen gestures? Well, this is not the case for my phone. I'm using a Galaxy Note 10+ running One UI 3.0 and gesture controls (swipe up for home, swipe in from either side for back, swipe up and hold for recents) seem to work perfectly with nova.

    Got a new phone (S21) & after a couple weeks Nova Launcher just stops working. I'll open an app then when I back out of the app I'm left w/o Nova & staring at the stock interface. Rebooting, uninstall/reinstall don't change this behavior. It's very frustrating & I'm about ready to dump Nova & live with the stock launcher. I just want a no-drama launcher that doesn't die after every app start.

    I bought an Umidigi A7 Pro and the available customisations were insufficient. A friend recommended Nova and it's fantastic. I was able to customize the layout and it includes an app drawer (which was one of the big issues I had when I first set up my phone. I very highly recommend this app!!

    I downloaded this so that I can use a Duck Duck Go widget for searching instead of Google. Other than that it's pretty much stock Android which I prefer. I've had no issues with it. Though it does warn when adding a widget that Nova Launcher can see any data on the widget. So be careful about that.

    No edge display options after android 11 update. Nova launcher also does not show up under edge display settings either. This makes waterfall displays simply show black bars on home screen. Very disappointing.

    This might be a great app for others but for me; it has caused me nothing but trouble and a waste of time. I would probably try it at a later date to see if things have changed. This app has a lot of customization but most are hard to maneuver and understand. I believe that this app needs a new user friendly make over, so all people can enjoy it. Don't get me wrong; it has some very good things but they are not easy to understand.

    For the past 5 months I have gotten used to a bug where every time I press the home button it shows all my launchers on my phone to choose from, even though I press always use for nova launcher every time, it continues to show up every time I press the home button , I thought something might be bugged on my phone and I kinda got used to it, but after I got a new phone the same problem occurs.

    Updating my review 1/12/20 - I had used Nova Prime for a few years after starting out with Apex. Nova had been my go to launcher for 3 years with my Pixel 2 XL. When I got the Pixel 5, I tried turning on Android gestures, but due to known issues those didn't work well with Nova. Setting default launcher to system/Pixel in Android settings, them back to Nova, seems to have fixed the problems for me. I have Nova and I have Android gestures. Love it!

    Absolutely the best launcher I've tried. Some others are more flashy but not as functional. Plus, if you add "Sesame", it rocks your world!

    Launcher setups restored from backups are currently broken. I tried to restore a backup I had from google drive and nova settings said it was not a valid backup file. So I tried making a current backup of the default settings and restoring that, it also said it was not a valid backup file.

    When I set lock screen and wallpaper with different images, the image of the lock screen is offset to the right. This is very annoing and is forcing me to use same image for both.

    I used to love this app, but the recent bugs are frustrating and am getting ready to uninstall. I was hoping there was an update that I missed. :( Others have already listed the bugs, so I won't reiterate.

    I have used nova launcher for years, but since upgrading to android 11, it continually causes my phone to crash. If they fix it, I will be back, but for now, I have removed it. Just a note: when I deleted nova launcher everything worked fine.....

    This launcher revived my 3yr old phone. I had been dealing with full minute loading times of my home screen, home not responding, did a factory reset out of desperation, and the issue still came back. Downloaded this and replaced my stock launcher, and havent had a single problem since?

    The ability to customize everything is a big plus with Nova. I love that they have a Google now companion app too for the left swipe goodness. Small problem with the search bar right now. The Google search bar will either search the internet or apps.. not both.

    The best launcher i ve ever use (2019)....(2021) Nova Launcher has been a great 3rd party launcher by far in my opinion with its freedom to customise lots of stuff however with current android is on 11 i wish there will be an update for this launcher cuz there are things tht Nova aren't compatible with the new android version so yeah hope the developer could give us an update...

    A very useful app with a lot of customisation ,very decent guestures and very light weight launcher. Please add blur the background option. Which will be a cool add-on to this launcher . All the best for the team and keep it up guys 👍

    I have been using Nova launcher since 2014, it is one of the best launchers... up until this bug appeared and I would now have to say that you should avoid Nova launcher until the bug is fixed. I would like to see a clear answer from Teslacoilsw stating whether or not they will fix this bug soon, if not then I will abandon and find another launcher (SEE MY EDIT BELOW, I DID RECEIVE A REPLY). The bug manifests when some apps are updated, on completion of the update there will be a duplicate icon in the folder, sometimes identical sometimes a different icon. In some cases (e.g. Kindle app) both icons will launch the app, but are different looking icons. In some cases, the duplicate icon does not launch the app, but an error is generated. This bug has happened in the past and been fixed by Teslacoilsw (AFAIK) but not this time, this bug has persisted now for a long time. The only way to fix this is to uninstall the app in question and reinstall and I have become fed up with having to repeatedly do this, especially an app like Kindle which takes a lot of setup... So... Teslacoilsw... are you going to finally address this issue, please provide some kind of answer, I would really hate to have to abandon you, but you leave me no choice.... EDIT 06Mar21 REPLY RECEIVED: I didn't see any response from Teslacoilsw to my review, so I sent an email to their customer support and got a very swift response, thanks! There is a better workaround; temporarily remove all apps form the drawer folder that has the duplicate icon, then delete and recreate the folder. This removes the duplicate and is easier than uninstalling/reinstalling for some apps that have a complicated setup. The response to my email from Teslacoilsw stated that the bug would be fixed in a future release, but no date given as to when this will happen. I upgraded my rating from 1 to 3 stars for this improved workaround. the permanent fix will definitely get 5 stars.
