  1. Seth Winetrout-avatar

    Awesome. I love how you can make your own gestures, double tap for Spotify boom done. Call my wife? Swipe up on the phone icon boom calling. Maps? Double tap with a swipe down. Or change it to a swipe up on messages. I'm certainly not a power user, it I absolutely love this app. Been using it for over a year now. Thanks you.

  2. Ayek Eleazar-avatar

    Great launcher... I am having a bit of problem with the double tap to lock gesture. After double tapping, the screen blinks before the screen goes off. Also, the shortcut lock screen widget on my Huawei device shows "App isn't installed" but its working with the default Huawei launcher. Hoping you can help me with it. Thanks

    Fantastic!!!!! The best launcher I've ever used. I've thoroughly enjoyed each step in customizing my android. Other launchers Ive used in the past are uninstalled after a short period of time. There was ALWAYS one or two features I couldn't use unless I upgraded to their paid Launcher. If only they had mentiond that before I installed their app and wasnt half way through my customizations. Thank You for paying attention to detail. Donna V. Saul-Thomas Ceres, Ca.

  4. John Stiles-avatar

    "FIRST SMARTPHONE" $80°° Motorola from Target. One year later and I'm addicted to this thing. Avoided doing the ! SCARY LAUNCHER SWITCH ! until last month and now I know what the big deal is all about. Got rid of the outdated dark appdock thing & made the navbar transparent. Tried all the other customizations & cherry picked the ones that worked for me. It's a fairly simple learning curve after you just go for it and do the install. It's like I've got a brand new shiny $80°° E5Play now!

  5. Christopher Wood-avatar

    Christopher Wood


    Very powerful and well-made. New issue: widgets don't register inputs/taps. Older issues: If you change an icon it doesn't change in the app drawer. I wish there was a setting to show labels on folders only. There's a minor bug where dragging an icon over a folder containing 3 apps, but then not dropping in there causes the 3rd app icon in the folder to become left-aligned instead of centered. You can't import settings from Evie launcher.

  6. Jordan Ebacher-avatar

    One annoying problem: when i use the previous app button (bottom left button on my Galaxy s9 plus) from the home screen, what happens is it shows me the app that I used two apps ago instead of the previous one. Please fix this, it's really annoying. Another annoying thing: there used to be a Google search widget that was just the microphone that was like an ok Google command but now it's gone!

  7. Nic Ross-avatar

    Always been a great experience, plenty of customization options, no ads whatsoever, premium is not necessary but after a short while you'll realize for the price it is worth it just to support the dev for creating a free app thats so good you want to pay. Not many apps are so straight forward and honest like this. Best developer with the best apps by far

  8. Michael Anyaibe-avatar

    This app is blowing my mind! It has completely transformed my Samsung Galaxy S7 home screen to something that rivals, or even surpasses, that of any recent phone model! It's highly customizable, nondestructive, and the swap is seamless. And has your phone's home screen app limit ever bothered you? Well, Nova Launcher has got you covered with absurd amounts of app limit freedom! If your bored with your lackluster home screen, I encourage you to pick up Nova Launcher today!

  9. johnny jumpup-avatar

    I had bought an unbranded phone off wish, and the launcher app on it kept freezing. I did a few minutes of research and found that I could replace it. This one came highly recommended and I can see why. Not only has my phone stopped freezing since I set nova launcher as my default launcher, but now it's way faster! I put it on my other phone too, I love it!

  10. Thats Privateyoubastard-avatar

    Thats Privateyoubastard


    I love it, ever since i found it, it replaced my original launcher. Extremely customisable but still easy to find what you're looking for. Even the free version got everything a user needs. Though i would like to request to make it possible to choose how far the background scrolls when swiping to another page on the home screen.

  11. Adrianna Dąbrowska-avatar

    Adrianna Dąbrowska


    The app gives a lot of options to set up your phone exactly how you like it which is great. What is not so great is that it constantly crashes on my phone (OnePlus 7T). Apart from crashing while switching between the apps it started also to switch off and go back to regular OnePlus settings on its own.

  12. Your Pal Nurav-avatar

    Please for the love of God, stop accessing the internet once in every 15 seconds. My firewall app log is full of Nova Launcher denials... I left beta programme doubting that might be causing the data access, I have opted out of "send error info" option in advanced settings yet Nova doesn't stop accessing the internet... I feel like everything I do on my device is somehow being monitored...? I knew Google monitored us, didn't know Nova does it too... Using Nova for years, I had no idea of this.

  13. Simon Thor-avatar

    Great app but glitches with recent Android update. I was going to buy the prime version of the app but now the swipe up function to view open apps no longer works properly. Each time I open an app I can swipe up and I'm returned to the Pixel defaults. So I have to relaunch Nova Launcher and I can no longer access the apps I have opened by swiping up. Otherwise love this app and find it very easy to use. Highly customizable and straight forward. This app is great but I hope this bug is fixed soon

  14. S T-avatar

    Been using this launcher for some years now. Very good app but sadly with Android 10 it decreased its performance. Every time I go back to home it takes a few seconds before the icons appear, I have to swipe to go home again in order for them to load up. Hope to see a fix for it soon.

  15. Tim Saunders-avatar

    I saw this launcher recommended by several folks on the F(x)tec forum, so thought I'd try it because I like to use phones in landscape. I'm still getting used to Android, but so far, so good! This has helped me get on with an OS I had real reservations about, so altogether, I am very pleased, thank you.

  16. V MomÉofduo-avatar

    If you can take the time to dive into all of the "nooks and crannies" of your phone, and want to truly customize it all, this is the app for you. (aside ringtones, texting etc.... anyway.) its interface is pretty explanatory, and if you don't know guess and when you return to home screen you'll find out, and it's an easy fix if you don't like the current setting. (try not to change more than one thing you don't understand at a time.)

  17. Steven-avatar

    Competent and well designed but too many compromises for me: Removes the 'At a Glance' widget. Long-pressing to drag an app icon frequently opens the app instead. Doesn't remember which screen is home. Dragging app icons to the screen edge doesn't always open the next screen. No big deal for many, particularly in light of this app's many great features, but not acceptable for me.

  18. Ujjwal Swami-avatar

    The best app when it comes to setting your android close to pixel homescreen setup. However, one issue is that on gesture phones like the Redmi S2, the bottom search bar comes too close to the chin even after adjusting its height (NOT padding, but HEIGHT on longpress), it's just not much height as the new pixel 4,3 or2 have post their android 10 gesture update. Also, the app icon rows on homescreen are not as spaced as that of the pixel 4. Hope they fix the issues and keep up wth pixel changes.

  19. Keith Hutchinson-avatar

    Seems to be a well built launcher have had no issues. I have one thing I'd like that other launchers that I've used had but didn't live up to functioning standards is font scanner to be able to use any font Styles from other apps installed on device. I'd give 5⭐ for functionality and personalisation if it had that good work thanks for the launcher keep up the good work.....

  20. Ronnie Westmoreland-avatar

    I've tried quite a few different launchers. Most weren't very good and made my phone lag. Or were intrusive and wanted various permissions to overwrite things. The Nova launcher however is different. It's very minimal in its use of your permissions yet still allows you to customize your setup a little. This is easily the best launcher I've tried and I'd suggest at least giving it a try.

  21. Niraj Karde-avatar

    The launcher lets you edit the way your phone looks, the way you's great as it has many customising options to choose from (icon pack, icon size, adding transparent widgets, etc)....if you have some money buying the premium one it would let you customise your phone even further....well that's what it is suppose to do ;)

  22. Brian Huang-avatar

    Gives much needed control over a constantly (obnoxiously) changing ux. Also helps that they react very quickly to new Android updates. Only downside: there are a LOT of settings, many of them sounding redundant. You sometimes have to research and experiment to figure out how to get what you want.

  23. geeknproud321-avatar

    Uses maybe 100-200MB less overall memory than the default Samsung launcher on my Galaxy A20 and allows me to have a familiar common interface across multiple phones. As customizable as it needs to be and has always been very reliable. Makes migrating to a new phone easier and quicker as well.

  24. Álvaro Zanetti-avatar

    Great app. I've been using it for more than 6 years. Now, the video thumbnails in Android 10 seem a bit buggy. With the default launcher they work OK when I minimize a YouTube video, but with Nova the thumbnail disappears until I touch the zone where it should be.

  25. Sean Mandrake-avatar

    If you use your phone professionally, for hours every day, this app can declutter your desktop and allow you to create the perfect work-interface. Completely override icon size, style, position and spacing. Get rid of useless g-widgets forced upon you. Change every nuance of your workspace. (I'm also currently running Android 10 and haven't had any problems at all after upgrade.)

  26. Lee-avatar

    Issue with animations in Android 9 on EMUI 9.1. Previous app window animations overlay one and other briefly and it looks horrible. Folder opening animations are not smooth, regardless of setting. Been using Nova for years but took a break for a year, came back and it looks different (but better imo) and that's good, unfortunately it's a little buggy on my Honor 8X

  27. Aundrea Laine-avatar

    Love this launcher!! I've used so many over the years and Nova is so easy but with a lot of options, you won't get confused, as every one is detailed about what it does. I haven't experienced any problems, and I love being able to make MY phone 100% ME! Ty devs for doing such a great job💚

  28. CJ McGuire-avatar

    My favorite launcher by far. Still updates to this day since it's release nearly 10 years ago. It's the most custizable thing I've ever seen. You can literally change everything about it. (I recommend the prime version to everyone). It's really my phone's best friend. I love it. Keep it up TeslaCoil. This launcher takes being a tech junky to a whole new level.

  29. Timothy Smith-avatar

    Surprisingly buggy. While it's a good launcher overall, there are some bugs that I feel like shouldn't exist in a launcher this mature. For instance, if you turn off the screen while in the recent apps list, when you turn the screen back on all of the app screens are blank. Another issue I notice is that there are times when attempting to bring up an app from the recent apps list, and it takes a very long time to come up. Both things I never experienced in the Google launcher, and frankly these shouldn't be happening in a launcher of this type, in my opinion. I may start looking for another launcher because these bugs are simply too simple to miss and should be fixed.

  30. mathew easton-avatar

    Great app. I've got the prime version. I was getting lots of ads and pop ups. Play store said this was the last app. Installed AVG... Which got rid of the ads app. It wasn't Nova. :-) Great app. Keep up the good work.

  31. Unknown-avatar

    This launcher is pretty good but I wanted more options, some simple things like being able to choose from the color of the shadows on the labels, more fonts for the labels. But the option I want the most right now is something like a persistent notification badges. Right now the notification badges are pretty much useless since they go away as soon as you remove a notification from your lock screen, completely defeating the purpose of having them in the first place.

  32. Jonathan Preslar-avatar

    Jonathan Preslar


    I'm not sure why, but this launcher fixed the main issue I had with my phone. My G6 Forge is nice, but the Motorola UI was buggy, and actually slowed my device down. I only have a quad core with 2gb RAM after all. I tried many launchers and they all did the same. But when I gave this a try I was very surprised by how smooth it is. My phone is running great and now has a very premium look and feel. Great job devs, 5 stars from me!👍

  33. Joseph Bahder-avatar

    Really phenomenal customization options, especially with organizational structure. It can take a low-budget Android from tolerable to enjoyable in seconds. Helps get rid of most of the pesky terrible UIs that cheap manufacturers sometimes slap on there. Highly recommend it!

  34. A.J. Coffey-avatar

    Drains your battery...I've tried given this launcher a chance several times. Even paid for it. Definitely a good launcher drains your f'n battery like there's no tomorrow!! Plus it lags going in and out of screens/apps. Fix those issues and it would be great.

  35. Mike Crabtree-avatar

    Just installed it today. So I'm giving it 3 stars to start. I may update it as I learn the launcher. While I read nothing about ads in the reviews. I can say that if I see 1 ad, this will be uninstalled and get the lowest rating possible. I don't care how good or bad a app is. If it has ads. It's gone and black balled as fast as possible. If you have a good product. Let people use it for free for a time, with a buy version. If your app is any good. People will buy it.

  36. John Williamson-avatar

    John Williamson


    Clean, smooth, fast and efficient, this launcher puts the big boys CM and GO to shame. Less is more with this app, there's no ads (so far), easy to set up and use, virtually no lag at all and very customizable. If you're looking for a quick, pleasant and hassle-free launcher you've found it, congratulations.

  37. Don Simmons-avatar

    While I like the launcher and would love to stay with it, I doubt I'll keep it and here's why. I discovered in the first day of use, THERE ARE NO APP NOTIFICATION BADGES FOR EMAIL, MESSAGES, ETC, and to me that'a takeaway. I'll be damned if I'm gonna have to pay $4.99 to get email and message badges and then have to go to the Tesla website to activate them. And trust me, it's NOT about the's the principle of only getting a "partial" performing app. This should be disclosed upfront.

  38. Mit Parmar-avatar

    Double tap to lock gesture doesn't work properly in Android 10. It says to enable accessibility service, which is enabled. After restart it works but shows pop up to enable the service. Then after a while it stops working. Its behaviour is totally random.

  39. Ars 000-avatar

    I think the best feature is that apps can change their icons. This feature does not exist in other applications. But it's too bad we can't change the color of the area where we see apps. Especially the orange parts aren't really nice, so it'd be better if we had the feature to change the colors there. Instead of seeing a single color, we can see our normal background, if there's a transparency adjustment. That'd be perfect.

    When I installed the trial version, it didn't take 5 minutes for me to go back to the Playstore & donate. That was more than 10 years ago. Each time I bought a new celly, Nova was the first app I installed. No doubt, I will always use this launcher as long as I'm using a cellphone. FAAWAD... PERIOD;)

  41. Shreyansh Tiwari-avatar

    The app is great but have some bug with the color OS. After sometime of the phone being idle, the default launcher comes back and again home button have to be pressed to bring back the nova launcher. Kindly resolve this issue as it causing inconvenience and the overall experience of using it is not pleasant, as in other OS devices.

  42. Eric D.-avatar

    Best launcher for Android. Runs smoothly, allows for maximum customization, and is compatible with all icon packs, widget sets, KWGT, live wallpapers, etc. Many thanks, developers! Just a suggestion though, can you make it that the interface goes back to within the same folder instead of going back to the home screen (eg. I have my Yahoo and Google mail in the folder "Mail", but when I exit out of one of them, the screen goes back to homesecreen instead of inside the "Mail" folder.)

  43. Mark Erzuah Siam-avatar

    Mark Erzuah Siam


    Simply the best launcher I have ever used.Everything is fast considering I am currently using a low end device. The only thing I can complain about is that the Google news feed panel integration doesn't work flawlessly, it comes and goes, and its been unresponsive for about four days now. It will be a blast if it worked well

  44. Nathan Alan-avatar

    This app has made any Android phone I use as customizable as possible. I like the additional transition animimations when changing home screens, which mimic Windows 3rd party apps during the Vista and 7 OS'. I can lock my home screens so the custom icons & widgets don't get accidentally changed. I can't use any phone without it! The upgrade to Pro is worth it & then some, I highly recommend the features and ease of use, as well as the simple beauty.

  45. Alexia Stevens-avatar

    I got this app because of the Android 10 update broke my pixel 3a, (which, for starters. It doesn't even WORK with Android 10 update. So how am I supposed to fix it??)I can't use the home button or swipe up to see apps, I can't see any notifications, and the phone is completely reset on preferences to how it was when I bought it last year. Forums told me to get this to fix it, and it worked for people but I can't get it to work, Set Up Wizard doesn't display on my screen at all.

  46. Aditya Das-avatar

    I have tried out many launchers and after I left using launchers I heard about Nova. I didn't install it cause i didn't felt the need to. Today it's been 3 days since i installed it and after using it I can definitely see why many were recommending it. Its got some awesome features which came handy and I loved how many apps like KWGT/KWLP compliments the customization of the launcher. Overall I'm very satisfied. Good work devs. 😊👍

  47. Bruce Wayne-avatar

    Ever since the update it has been really buggy. One major thing that happens often is that everything looks like it's shifting to the left for a split second and then jumps back. Like just a really quick glitch.

  48. Magdalen Shillington-avatar

    I love that Nova gives me so many options to customize my phone. I can customize the home and lock screen, icon layout, my quick menu options, how I want to scroll through my home screens, and so much more. Whenever I've gotten a new phone, Nova launcher is one of the first apps I download

  49. T Simon-avatar

    Love the app, but developers do not respond to emails. Therefore, problem questions go unanswered. Luckily I found the answer to one of my last questions after write some time, but I'm sight impaired and could've used their swift help.

  50. Jan-avatar

    Nova Launcher is one of the first apps I install on any new Android devices, I've been using it for years. The app is stable, offers many improvements over the stock homescreen, and pricing for the Pro version is reasonable (so I've happily paid for it). One point of annoyance is that there's no setting for just locking the Home screen layout. If you lock the Home layout, app long-click menus are also locked (which sucks), and if you don't use the lock option, any accidental long-press on the home screen opens the Widget menu. Really wish the devs would disentangle this behavior into two separate options.

  51. Steven Specht-avatar

    Fantastic launcher, absolutely worth the prime upgrade. I'm currently using a Galaxy A70 and have been using Nova since I discovered it a few years ago. I never have issues with the launcher itself. I love the options and various things you can do with it. Thank you for making this a thing, because I cannot stand Samsung's OneUI and dont even get me started on that ugly thing google calls an interface.

  52. ivy erny-avatar

    I'm happy with my very own one click deck since forever. However, after an update yesterday from huawei, using p30pro here, they seems to be overriding the launcher everytime. Thing is i haven't had any issue before so i actually forgot how to disable it. Can help?

  53. Neetu Heman-avatar

    Nova Launcher was good for simple interface. But for the App Clones like whatsapp, the Second clone whatsapp icon disappears from the icon list!! I tried so many times to get it back but efforts all in vain. I think this needs to be checked and rectified by the development team,I m using Vivo Z1 pro. App clone icon not appearing in Nova but the same can be seem on Vivo homescreen! Please provide the earliest solution to it! Past a week.. I have complained. Still no one bothered to reply!!

  54. Ruben u-avatar

    So I just bought Nova Launcher and I've noticed that the unread count clears if you dismiss the notification from the lock screen or notification shade. For example, I receive a text message, swipe to dismiss the notification from my lock screen. The message is still unread in the app, but the unread count on the badge goes away (in other words goes to 0). In my mind, it should still show me that I have unread messages, is this permanent or is there a setting I missed?

  55. JBR-avatar

    Far and away a better app drawer than the standard one included with my Samsung phone. I have been trying to put all my apps in alphabetical order on my home screen, which entails moving each one individually, until I found Nova Launcher. Installed and suddenly everything is as I wanted it. It gives you so much more control of accessing your apps.

  56. Ronnie Kean-avatar

    Excellent app. I used Next launcher for yrs but when I switched phones (note 9) I found it didn't work properly. I paid for pro version of Nova and i was very happy. I got the Android 10 update a few days ago and suddenly Nova Launcher not so great. I still really like it but it needs to have gestures fixed on it to work with Android 10. Can't swipe to go to home screen anymore. Will this problem be resolved?

  57. junwei lim-avatar

    Great display customisation app. The only issue I have is the lack of customisation with widgets. For example, the calendar widget transparency can be adjusted in the default launcher. However this setting is not available in Nova launcher.

  58. Jeff Poglitsch-avatar

    This app has been consistently amazing, bought it for my day one galaxy s5 and never looked back on using my phone without it. At one point last year for whatever reason the app wasn't working which kinda locked me out of the phone since I use gesture controls for everything with a blank screen. Emailed them and they got back to me in less than a hour with a apk to fix it and problem solved. That's some awesome customer service right there. Would give more stars if I could.

  59. XmrbbrmX AWAKE-avatar

    Best Launcher out hands down!! Very much so worth paying for. You get your account for life. The Nova team stays on top of bugs and fixes. If you want a Launcher from a company who cares about their product get Nova. Sure other launchers are neat, but this one is so customizable known and supported by every icon and theme packs and kept up to date. Don't waste ur money or time on anything other than this Launcher.

  60. Joseph Marin-avatar

    This is one of the apps that follows me from different phones and tablets that lets me save how I work with these different devices without having to go nuts trying to remember how I had set them up. I backup my settings and restore on the new device and I can get right to work without having to recreate the wheel from scratch every time.

  61. Kitty-avatar

    I've been using it for a couple of days and I love how aesthetic it is. No ads, no lagging or crashes. I have my icons exactly how I want them down to the image and size, and I love that I can hide the dock. Couldn't recommend this more. (^‿^)

    New bug I've noticed on pixel3 with Android 10. Can't swipe up to clear apps. I noticed if I hold down the home key to get the hello Google search tool I can swipe up from there to switch between or clear apps. But.... If you clear all you end up looking at the stock Google home screen until you hit home again. Weird _______________________________________________ Lowered my star rating again due to no response from delevoper almost a month later. No update and no fix. Still having this problem

    Phone: S10 Issue: when hiding the navigation bar, instead of it being hidden, it produces a thick black border the top of the screen. This wasn't the case with my S9+. I believe this is a glitch with the new S10. Have been using for years, but will have to stop if this can't be resolved.

  64. Emilia Venka-avatar

    It's OK, just not for me. I suggest giving it a try anyway just to see what you think. EDIT: Gave it another try... even *lower* rating now because I can't reset custom icons, the button doesn't do anything. Very frustrating to manually change each one while there's a useless reset button taunting me.

    Outstanding! I used Launcher EX for 5+ years and had to abandon ship due to ADS and hounding to buy other apps to the point it was un-useable. I have found NOVA does everything the other launcher did with only 1 exception and does it SO MUCH CLEANER. I highly customize and organize my 9 individual home screen pages and wish I could tap the small dots to get to other pages without having to manually swipe over to them. Thank you for a great LAUNCHER!!

    Nova has been the front display of my android for as long as I can remember! Nova allows each and every android upgrade to feel as comfortable as the last. Everything is where you left it and the new stuff is wherever you care to dig. From a daily user point of view, Nova allows any phone to feel like YOUR phone. ALL the time...

    Have been using this for as long as I can remember. It was a perfect fit for me. But now for reasons I have cloned my WhatsApp and it won't let me choose between them. It only launches the primary one. Please fix it.

  68. Daniel Lemke-avatar

    This is an excellent launcher. Highly recommended for Onn tablet owners that want to remove that annoying Google search bar that won't go away, even with the app disabled. And no ads on the free version? Hot damn!

  69. David Manning-avatar

    Used for YEARS across so many devices and its always been number 1 to me. Never even tried anything else since I went to this so maybe there's better but I've never had a single issue here. Love the list drawer view and gesture support.

    2 stars for ALL launchers, not just Nova. I wasn't aware of what smartphone "launchers" were for years. When I became aware I downloaded about a dozen launchers. I found out quickly that these "launchers" were basically the heart of your daily interface and interaction with your smartphone. After trying out about a dozen free launchers I settled on Nova. I've been using Nova for about a year now but need to say that ALL LAUNCHERS, including Nova, are overly complicated.

  71. Jimmy Jam-avatar

    When email or texts are received they do not have flag on icon on home screen. They do however, have a flag on those apps when the app drawer is swiped up. Damned annoying that I have look in app drawer to see if I have messages. Motorola G7 plus.

  72. Ian McGreish-avatar

    Using over one UI on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and honestly it's far better. More customisation like some Samsungs old launcher from 2018 used to have and well, the application bar it uses which is like vanilla androids is far superior to how One UI lays them out. Getting a s20 soon and I don't see One UI lasting very long when Nova is superior.

  73. Stuneree-avatar

    I've been using Nova Launcher on all of my phones for years. Relatively easy to use, can be a bit confusing at first but you can pick it up quickly. The free version has a tonne of features, and the paid one is still not very expensive and adds even more customization. 5/5

  74. Raul Delgado-avatar

    Bring back the larger folder size!!! Since the last update, my folder icons look funny (TOO SMALL) as they no longer encompass the entire grid app icon layout. Suggestion: Make the folder icon size variable (adjustable padding/borders, etc.) relative to (separate from) the tiny app icons in the layouts.

  75. Blacken Red-avatar

    Can't change background colour for apps after initial setup, it gets locked to white or black and it's a bit of a nightmare to use. I won't be paying for the full version until launcher stops making me feel like I want to punch something! One plus is that it offers excellent performance for people wanting to gain device RAM back from other heavy loaded launchers.

  76. Adam g-avatar

    Awesome work guys, great way to customise the look and feel of note phone without having to root it, been using it for over a year on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 N9500 with no issues at all, accept maybe what icon pack to use, so many options... Well worth the money, keep up the good work

  77. Yik Yang Tan-avatar

    It works perfectly fine until latest update for Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ to Android 10. Issues: 1. Nova will auto restart, and need to re-grant accessibility access for screen lock once in a while 2. Switching app on recent tab might fail from the launcher(using stock launcher was fine) 3. Lack of new navigation gesture support :(

  78. Azure Vice-avatar

    This app was perfect...until android 10. Needs better optimization. Noticed worsened battery life with it. When it is updated I'll turn it back on. In the mean time I'll deal with the stock launcher of the phone.

  79. Troy Wallen-avatar

    By far the best launcher app simple yet has personalization beyond comprehension, and if anything goes wrong you can make a backup for literally every action you've ever done! In conclusion solid build and really unbreakable!!!!

  80. ronald brans-avatar

    The latest update, made the app crash and it does keep crashing, did a force restart, no change. Will try cache later but I hate to lose all my settings and stuff... So not happy. Fix it plz and I'll change it to a 4star(i never do 5star, as nothing is perfect 😂) Edit: as there was no notification earlier when I pressed the nova settings, and now there is. Some sort of popup(this is not the default.. Etc) when you select it to use would be nice. So I'll put the rating only to 3.

  81. Nicolas Pilot-avatar

    Just about every youtube review says this is the best launcher, and I agree, it is awesome! But One UI 2.0 is out now, and the developer still REFUSES to allow app launcher tabs to be on the bottom of the screen, only allowing them at the top of the screen, where they are frustratingly out of reach.

  82. 1SqueakyWheel-avatar

    Great launcher. I've enjoyed it for years since becoming disenchanted with the ever-growing shadiness of GO. Nova has been consistent, reliable, flexible and so much nicer than the stock android interface. One of the several MUSTS that I have to load onto a phone before using it daily. Keep up the good work!

  83. Carlos Sierra-avatar

    I have had a lot of time with this Launcher, even explored different ones, I never have used the native Launcher but a handful of times. I have the Moto G7 Power and Nova has been the best overall for my phone. Try it anyone with the same phone promise you won't be disappointed. It's worth the money. (Nova Pro)

  84. Richard Dodd-avatar

    Great ability to mod but flawed, you can pretty much mod most things however my what'sapp messages do not show the little number next to the icon (yes it's activated and I've tried all options on both) also my BBC news widget does nothing when I click on it and my weather app widget does not work either. I uninstalled it and I'm back to stock launcher, waste of time if it doesn't work right. I've had 100's of messages missed because the little notification on the corner of the app is missing,

  85. nixesha o.-avatar

    Favorite launcher, hands down. Doesn't slow down my phone, beautiful transitions, gorgeous options and defaults. No ads that I've seen, even on the free version, doesn't harass you to rate. I'd give it 6/5 and 11/10 if I could.

  86. Geo Alpha-avatar

    Good app if you set it as a home screen instead of my samsung one ui home, it perfectly works, but there is one problem. We all know that android 10 has that new apple style os it has a one line navigation bar like iphone has. When you set this launcher that line does not work 😒😒😒 please make android 10 version 🙏🙏🙏

    amazing experience. 5 🌟. one suggestion though. it would be better if you move the position of search bar/box to the middle. the search result comes to the upper side of screen which makes it difficult to operate with one hand.

  88. N8 500-avatar

    My go to launcher, whenever I get a new phone. I've used it in my last 3 phones. I'm not even interested in what the launcher on any new phone I get is like. I just use this. It's perfect!!

    Was great, but since the removal of Tesla the badge number counts have been REALLY off I rely on blades. Upwork says new message when there are none. Gmail gives an inaccurate count of unread messages. I am searching for a replacement because this is REALLY frustrating.

  90. Zach D.-avatar

    UI looks and feels outdated in my opinion. App animations don't work when closing apps. Missing features of OneUI such as moving multiple apps to a new page. App Launcher and Nova search is ugly. Plenty of great features I appreciate but not enough to make me stay and use it daily.

  91. Zain Ajam-avatar

    I love this app. I've tried so many different launchers and I always come back to this one. There is one bug though, where widgets' theme won't update appropriately when turning dark mode on and off on Android 10. Only updates after a forced restart of the launcher

  92. Jairin Cin-avatar

    It's awesome 👍 I am pleasantly surprised as to the many free easy to use features the app has at my disposal thus far. I'm currently in the process of getting better acquainted w the app. I will update as I go 👍

  93. Alecia-avatar

    Love this launcher! Ive tried others in the past that have been super glitchy and caused operating issues to my device. Nova does not glitch and has been very compatible with my Samsung Devices! Highly recommend purchasing!!

    The Best. Period. Have owned the prime version of this for a few years. This is the best, most comfortable and customisable launcher.. And the best part is they keep on updating it even after so many years.. Have used mostly ask the competitors, none come closer to this.

  95. Martin T-avatar

    I'm a long-time user.always liked this app and it has never failed me. It has a large number of settings that you can use or ignore as you wish. A perfect example of good app design.

  96. Evan Burn-avatar

    5 star. No comments. Just amazing. I believe the best Android Launcher experience in this world. Thank you so much to the entire team who worked hard for developing this creative app. An individual can customise gestures of the phone like how they want. Best of the best. 😍

  97. Mr Otaku-avatar

    Wonderful, however... This app would be perfected simply by adding a "notification-indicator" next to it's corresponding app, e.g. a red dot near an app. As it stands, without this modification, it is easy to forget which app has a pending notice (once you empty the upper notification tab.

  98. Oblivious-avatar

    Edit: Now it's just crashing all the time, would appreciate it if this issue was fixed. Another Edit: Glad to know that the issue won't be fixed :/

    Thank for great launcher. My phone just upgrade to android 10. I using real me 5 pro phone with have their own themes store. After upgrading to android 10.. i cant change my themes any more through themes store. I hope u guys can solve this kind of problem..thank

    migrated from Action Launcher pro to Nova Prime. Generally like. Great stability and good functions. Miss AL'S right sidebar full of widgets, and AL shutters. You guys really need to sort out crazily clunky way of organizing app drawer folders/content. It's bad, like a bodged-on afterthought. Also desktop lock off/on could be more accessible. Needs a RESTART launcher settings option/shortcut: sometimes on boot, SD located apps are unavailable so launcher needs to be restarted.
