Every single time I review a device, I lament the lack of options available to the launcher employed by the manufacturer. Inevitably I turn to my launcher of choice after a few days of pain — Nova Launcher. With the Prime (Paid) option Nova Launcher becomes a launcher packed with just about every option you could think of. Just a few days after launching the Nougat-option-packed update to their launcher you too can now have Nova Launcher Prime to unlock additional features for just 99 cents for a limited time.
In an announcement via their social media channels, Nova Launcher developer, TeslaCoil Software, has announced a special holiday pricing that lasts until January 1st, 2017. For under a buck you can add the following features to the already impressive Nova Launcher:
- Unread count badges
- Custom drawer groups
- Ability to hide apps in the drawer
- Icon swipe actions
- More scroll effects
The news from TeslaCoil Software does not stop there with them teasing a big announcement later today. What it is is unknown at this stage but it could be about the only missing option for Nova Launcher — swipe right to go to Google Now. It could also be that they are now the default option on a manufacturer’s new device — unlikely, mostly wishful thinking on my behalf I suspect. Stay tuned to here to find out.
Until then go and spend that 99 cents, get Nova Launcher Prime and enjoy the best launcher in the land. Remember there is a quick and easy guide to pixelise your device using Nova Launcher right here on Ausdroid.
While other launchers offer similar options, Nova Launcher is considered the best all-round launcher by many, including most of us here at Ausdroid.
