    Just so everyone knows Nova Launcher was acquired by an analytics company and you can read a bit about it here to make your own mind up before you install it: makeuseof.com/nov…se/
    The developer of Nova has discussed this topic in-depth on Reddit - if there are any concerns / queries from any scare-mongering tactics:


    Apparently you can disable analytics through the app. (edited)

    Can someone experienced explain what this does for a person who's not used a launcher thing before?
    I just have my homescreen and moved my apps that I use there really /swipe right to the 2nd screen for other apps
    It allows more customisation, like you can have the app tiles as small or big as you want them, can get rid of the news thing on the left home screen and have as many pages of home screens as you want, can use gestures to open your most used apps, can hide installed apps from the main folder so you don't have to have shortcuts on the homescreen and a double in the list of apps.

    Hope that all makes sense, that's the main things I used it for.

    Nova was the best launcher by far. UNTIL, they were bought by a data tracking company called branch.

    So I gave it up after years and years of use, in favour of Niagra Launcher.
    That explains the low price then. They'll most likely make a lot more from your data

    Yes. I would rather have Google and the 47 other companies that track my phone have full access. (edited)

    IMO Niagara launcher is the best android launcher, been my default for over 2 years which is saying something

    Everyone asking what's so fancy about nova.

    So here is my own list comparing it to samsung one ui 5

    Custom tabs in app drawer

    Rename any app.

    Hide any app from the app drawer. Probably the simplest and yet most useful feature. We don't need o icons there for settings, device care, phone, swiftkey, Samsung messages, Samsung free and so on.

    Resizing widgets works in two ways. Allows to resize it without changing its look

    Stacking icons on widgets (some widgets have a lot wasted space), even widget on widgets.

    Ability to add shortcut to any activity (example shortcut to app booster)

    Search bar shows installed apps instantly, not like Samsung.

    Gestures like" tap to slide down" for recent apps so I don't need to reach very bottom corner of the screen

    A lot of customizations.
    You can change almost anything.
    Super large or tiny icons, bigger/smaller names, rounded or square,
    Search bar with extra icons or not?

    What's finally included in Samsung launcher or any other, nova had it at least 5 years ago (edited)
    I was in the middle of typing a mini version of this in response to a comment above this one when you posted this

    Lawnchair 2 is better if you want the latest pixel launcher and it's free

    Apex is another good launcher
    Microsoft launcher

    Long-time Nova Prime user. After sell-out to the analytics company, I'm now using AIO Launcher. It's different but good.
    Why what happened, what did the analytics company do

    Can you gift an app on android? I'd love to put this on my spare phone/account.
    You can install your paid apps on as many of your devices as you like, so long as they are connected to the account used to purchase the apps.

    Ever since they got purchased by data mining company uninstalled this from my phone immediately

    Don't trust them at all and yes read their generic PR responses for damage control
    So proud of you.

    Obviously you're using custom degoogled Rom compiled by yourself, never touched Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, reddit... Hotukdeals.
    Running pi-hole/adguard, custom DNS, ublock origin with custom lists.

    Your PC/laptop is running Linux and you never touched windows in your lifetime.

    Obviously you don't have any android TV at home neither Google/Alexa speaker.

    I'm so glad that everyone takes security so seriously.

    If you have a Xiaomi phone, this is an absolute Godsend.
    so is lineageos.....
    I don't really get what you're all excited about here.......so you have a phone/tablet, with an icon, that errr launches an app BUT for some crazy reason you want a different 'launcher' that errrr launches an app????
    and this one becomes your 'handler' just like your TV has been for decades quelle bizarro monde we live in eh?

    This is by far the best launcher. No icons and all that crap. You just type in what you want. Been using it years and it's free.

    I love Nova, been using it pretty much ever since I've had an Android phone

    What is this, could anyone explain as I am not really pc savvy
    Basically it provides a lot of customisation on your phone. So you can make your homepage have custom fonts, size of those fines, how you want your search widget, Dock size, etc.

    Was extremely useful back in the day when those features weren't baked in. Nowadays the default manufacturers launcher is pretty good.

    Warning to those on Google Android as this app is now tracking and will ask you to send crash details to developer.

    I've just managed with whatever system the phone comes with, so how would this improve things .v. eg stock Android/EMUI?
    There are many more customisations like vertical app drawer so it lists apps rather than horizontal scrolling, resize icons, remove icon text, change icon grid settings to fit more / less icons on your home screen. Advanced gestures where swipe down from anywhere pulls the notification bar down, remove icons from notification bar, hide notification bar. Loads of stuff I actively use and this is THE best launcher which I have been using since I started using androids back in 2015

    Used it for years, ignore the tin foil nutters, for 9p it's a no brainer!

    Maybe good 5 years ago but fairly redundant now. Current launchers are perfectly fine in comparison. I have this in my library but wouldn't bother installing it in this day and age.
    Because they all just copied nova functionality.

    Nova was the standard, anything else is just trying to get close to it.

    Double tap to lock was available for years. Some phones still don't have it.

    Turn off pointless animations.

    Tabs in app drawer

    Resize widget to any size you want.

    Plus is a lot smother than Samsung launcher.... On Samsung phone (edited)

    Using it for 7 years now
    Either this, or ES File Explorer ...

    Used this for years now. No other launcher has ever come close.
    How do you know if you've only used it for years?
  26. Avatar
    This or stock android on Pixel 6a?
  27. Avatar
    Pointless when android standard is so good. Also the 9p should really make some people think why its so low given who owns it.
    Have you used it?
  28. Avatar
    Useful for people using an Android from before 2013, otherwise the UI has come so far in recent times that this is unnecessary. (edited)
    You do know that different manufacturers have different UIs don't you?

    Android is the OS. The various UIs are just skins that give a different experience.

    There isn't one single android UI - some are still pretty horrible.

    What is the difference compared to miui?
    Night and day. I use this because miui is so poor

    The Microsoft Launcher is superb
    Agreed. Extremely well optimized and swift.

    Bought this about 7 or 8 years ago and it's still the first thing I install on a new phone.

    The great thing about Nova is that you can back up your exact home screens layout and transfer them to other phones, which is so useful when you've spent time setting up everything just the way you like it and you have to get a new phone.

    No idea why I would use it instead of default Samsung's UI, but I'll stockpile it two for 9p
    Yea this is what I was looking for too - for 9p it's super cheap but then again, still have to use it!
