Most manufacturers have their own launcher or home screen but to be honest they are all junk, especially compared to the third party offerings available. One of our favourites here at Ausdroid is Nova Launcher Prime but it normally is not cheap. For a limited time you can grab it on sale.
The developers of Nova Launcher Prime, as they often do, have the best launcher available for Android on sale now — as a Christmas offering — for just 99 cents. The Prime version of the app unlocks a lot of extras to the free version, something many of us have already purchased.
As a refresher Nova Launcher Prime offers nearly everything you could want in a third party launcher including:
- Gestures: Swipe, pinch, double tap, and more on the home screen to execute custom commands
- App Drawer Groups: Create custom tabs or folders in the app drawer for an ultra-organised feel
- Hide Apps: Remove apps from the app drawer without uninstalling them
- Custom Icon Swipe Gestures: Assign swipe gestures to home screen icons or folders for custom actions
- and more. More scrolling effects, unread counts, and others
If you are yet to purchase a third party launcher, or even just don’t own Nova Launcher Prime I can guarantee you it is well worth the dollar asking price. Head on over to the Play Store and grab it now.
Scott, important point missing in this article:
You have to install Nova Launcher, for the install of Nova Launcher Prime to be usable. Prime is just the paid features unlock key. It isn’t a launcher itself.
