No doubt this is one of the best launchers. But recently, I've been facing problems on my LeEco Le Max 2. Sometimes the navigation keys just stop working when I use this launcher, so I can't go back or home. I've to reboot the device to make them work again. It's happening 2 to 3 times a day. Pls. Fix it and 5 stars are for sure. Thanks! Full Review

Almost perfect Nova is an all round great launcher. It has a familiar stock set up and allows for a lot to customization. All it needs are more features found in other launchers Features like: A widget draw: a page you draw pull over your home screen that you can put widgets on. And widget shutters: A feature allowing you to open widgets for an up by swiping up on the app icon. Would really help improve the amount of customization and make a single home set up viable.

Does just what I need it to, and effectively! Worth having -- it's lightweight with just the right features. My favorite thing is customizing the app drawer (I have a ton of apps). The last update made it even better somehow! Can there be a settings search? I keep forgetting where certain things are. Full Review

I switched to Nova Launcher from the Microsoft Launcher after frequent lockups and overheating on my Galaxy S8. I am so glad I made the move. The Nova Prime edition provides so much more flexability and still provides the ability to quickly see frequently used apps (something I really liked about the Microsoft Launcher). There are lots of settings and adjustments available and becoming familiar with them took some time but well worth the effort. The most useful feature I found was the ability to easily group your apps in the app draw as opposed to creating on screen folders. Full Review

By far the cleanest and most functional launcher I have ever used. Even the free version does not have ads and everything works as it should. Just had the free version for a day before I bought the premium version and I am absolutely loving it. My only gripe, though it is really minor, is that the settings and customisation windows withing the launcher are in dark grey with red highlights. I wouldn't have minded an option to customise the colours so that we could have colours other than red, or even give us a few colour options, but it really isn't a problem. 5 stars to everyone involved with this launcher, and thank you so much for not bombarding us with ads, even in the free version!!!

This is a great customization. And I really like the simple layout over the stock google now launcher. But recently I discovered something. For some reason on my Moto G4 I was unable to receive a phone call. I could make all the calls I want but anybody that called me would get a busy signal. Other than that everything runs smooth, will be making a report about this later, but for now back to google now launcher. Full Review

Absolutely phenomenal. It does everything a launcher should do, no questions asked. Does it look good? Check. Is it extremely customizable? Check. Does it allow you to do tons of advanced stuff with your phone, while never being even somewhat confusing? Check. It supports every single stupid icon pack, widget, and background I throw at it. This is THE BEST OF THE BEST. If you want a good launcher, look no further. Looking forward to upgrading to prime. Full Review

Nova crashes on long pressing an app to select it. I think it's related to the pop-up menus that open while selecting them. Issue was not there before they were introduced. Works fine on my tablet. Phone Model gt-s7562(Galaxy S Duos), it is an old phone. Currently rolled back to an old version. Other than that the best launcher for Android. Full Review

Best app to turn your android TV box home screen into anything you want with great HD wallpapers. The TV boxes does not give a lot of options to change the dull and boring home screen page. Thanks TeslaCoil Software for making my android TV look great on start-up. Full Review

I use Nokia 6 oreo and I hated Google's teal theme. All websites are talking about substratum if you want a dark theme, but I must say after installing Nova launcher, I am done. It's perfect in every way. And there is an option to use the system icons which just makes it better. I think this developer is the most skilled. Thanks Full Review

Great work on the new update Kevin. Just love it. But,theres a small bug related to widgets. Some widgets like the yahoo weather widget disappear for a brief moment when opening the widget drawer.I have to restart the launcher to make them reappear. This is happening after the latest material update. Pls look into this. Otherwise everything is perfection. Full Review

I am absolutely in love with this app. I hate that Google search bar with a passion and this app gave me that clean home screen look that I wanted. I love the customization ability that this launcher gives you. I'm definitely going to buy this app. I just started using it so I want to give it some time to see how it works before Im giving up cash.

Fantastic launcher. Great level of customization. Stable. Have been using the pro version for years. Tried others but always come back to Nova. Only gripe is the implementation of folders on the desktop is less than impressive. Wish the folder opened smoothly and in the centre of the screen like the Microsoft launcher. Thanks for a great launcher! Full Review

Outstanding but for past few days Nova is draining my battery like crazy on Mi A1. Drained move than 25% battery when other apps managed to drain only up to 10% at most. Not sure why. I think I noticed this started happening after I installed Sesame Shortcuts and TeslaUnread, also got Primer version around that time. I can not confirm if its one of them tho. I suspect Sesame. I uninstalled them and will see. Awesome launcher but can't use it with this issue. Full Review

Used many launchers but this one just too good... It's simple plain n does not have those chinese themed solid fill icons. Needs only necessary minimum permission I think only 3. While other launchers does not leave any permission they just need full access to your phone. Full Review

I got rid of my iPhone and after 3 weeks I was about to get rid of my note8 cause iPhone withdrawal til I found this app. I can get rid of the junk that was driving me crazy and customize it the way i want it. I even tried an iPhone launcher. Lol despite to feel organized. This app has definitely done it!!! Best out there 100% Full Review

One of the most popular launcher apps. Good one. But, still no first party app for enabling Google feed like Google now launcher by swiping left! It doesn't have a smooth transition while swiping from the feed either :( Full Review

I trust Nova with every single android device. Down to even TV Streaming devices. It really allows for perfect customization. I would however really enjoy the ability for rearranging icons freely inside the app drawer. Im really visual and don't like the added bulk that folders and tabs impress on my experience. Thanks so much! :) Full Review

I've had this app for a while now and I've loved it's simplicity, but I didn't really get into customizing it till now. I love the look I've made with the Google button and calendar under the buttons in the doc. Streamline and unintrusive to my wallpaper. And if I don't like it, I can simply change it till I do.

I didn't know I needed this until I bought it. I heard praises sung from every section of the internet so I decided to jump in and boy am I happy I did. It allows for extreme customization without the need to root your device. It is lightweight and allows you to customize everything from gestures to icon size and shape. It's great. Full Review

Nova Launcher is by far the best launcher available. It surpasses stock Android launchers by miles (from Google, Samsung and OnePlus alike) and, to be honest, should be the built-in launcher. Plenty of customizable options and features you would think should come with Android already. The only problem I've experienced is a bug where some of my app icons randomly disappear from the home screen. Besides this annoying glitch, Nova is a beautiful and stable launcher everyone should be using. Full Review

Not bad, but the background on the home screen will rotate very often, even with rotate off and everything being used in portrait. The only way that I can rotate my background back into portrait is by re-applying the background from settings and I find this very annoying. Full Review

I love pretty much everything that you offer, customisation, looks etc. There is room for improvement also 1. Remove the gusture for opening nova setting by app draw launcher ,it is annoying when you need the app draw and you get nova settings 2. Add google swipe card features. Full Review

Very customizable but simple to setup and use. Other apps seem bulky and complicated to customize but this app has got it just right. Faster, smoother and far better than the stock launcher. Absolutely love that you can hide the clock in the status bar. Only downside to this app is you have to download another app to show badge counts ! Why ? Full Review

I have been using this for such a long time when I got a new phone I was so confused why my new galaxy had such a terrible format compared to my last before I remembered I had nova launcher before. It really is a great launcher and I will be using it as long as I have a phone that it works with. Full Review

Needs two things, 1. The ability to change position of date and Google Now button. 2. The ability to remove title text from folders (such as "Unnamed folder"). Sure you could put empty space there, but it just takes unnecessary space and is unaesthetic. Full Review

It was perfect for a few months. I even bought the complete version. But for the past few weeks my phone had been heating up like crazy and my battery drained in half the time it usually does. Nothing would fix it. Until I tried going back to my default launcher. Evething is fine now but I regret buying this app... (Device Galaxy S7 edge) Full Review

Used to be very good, after the latest update I cannot add app shortcuts to the home screen. I mean, what do you need all bells and whistles if you mess up the basics Looking for a replacement. Galaxy Tab S2 Full Review

App was perfect 'til some months ago. Now there is a very weird bug with the screen lock that let the phone press a point in the screen even if you don't touch the phone at all. Changing the launcher, I solved the problem so 100% is Nova. 5 stars again if you solve this problem. Full Review

 Syafiq Kamarul Azman

Simply the best launcher app around. I personally like a stock Android look but prefer certain brands of phones. This just swaps the experience and UI of brand-stock UI which is often subpar to a stock Android look. If you're looking to customize your phone UI at no virtual cost of performance, you need to get Nova launcher. A few clicks transforms your phone dramatically Full Review

Ever since the new update when i restart my tablet all of my widgets don't work until i remove them, and replace them which gets really annoying. So if this issue can be solved in a future update that would be awesome. Since there's not another launcher on the play store that does everything i need it to do like this one. Full Review
