    So after being an iPhone user for 6 years, I recently switched to the Note 8. One of the first apps recommended for me to download was Nova Launcher. I cannot believe the level of customisation available to me on my phone. It's unbelieve! This app is brilliant. I didn't even know it was possible to customise so much stuff. Safe to say I'm never going back to an iPhone and Nova Launcher will be an app I always have on my android journey. Thank you so much! Full Review

    Long time user! Simply spectacular Long time user! This app has always been spectacular, especially if you learn about all the awesome features! Works well with no fuss and lets you set up exactly what you want. Great job. I have one request. Add an option to have the desktop NOT slide up slightly when opening the immersive app drawer please have an option for the desktop to just fade (for example) as the drawer slides up I think this would look much cleaner Full Review

    This app was completely worth the 5 dollars I paid for it. The interface is beautiful, it has so many useful features. There are only a few things I can think of that would make this better. First off, I think it should cache the list of activities for the activity shortcut, because depending on the amount of installed apps, it can take a very long time to load. I also think there should be multiple ways to sort the folders (reverse name, date installed, etc) and an undo button. Other than that, this is my favorite launcher by far. Full Review

    Great launcher. So customizable, which I really enjoy doing. Gives so much more options on my plain phone. Have tried so many other launchers, and even paid for some others, but keep on coming back. The only thing that I would suggest is that it would be great to add custom fonts. Seen some really nice ones out there but my phone manufacturer won't let me add to the phone fonts. Would be a great addition to a future update, but still a great launcher regardless. 5 stars (would give more if Google would let me). Full Review

    Incredible customization for enhanced productivity Incredible customization for enhanced productivity... plus is just super cool. 😊 ~ Nova launcher not only allows you to change the look and feel of your Android device, but it also allows you to create awesome custom workflows to help stream line my productivity. Resizable widgets is pretty sweet, too. ~ Apple doesn't have anything like this. So glad I converted to Android after being a diehard Apple user over the past 5 years. Full Review

    Best launcher available! After I tried lots of alternatives, I use Nova for many years now. There is just no better one. Rock solid, never fails, lots of useful and fun features, highly customisable, worked on every Android phone and version I ever owned. Although the free version already has more power and features than I need, I bought the Prime version three years ago. These developers deserve to be paid for this quality product. Thank you!

    Android launcher par excellence. Tried all launchers and came back to this everytime. Allows us to reduce icon sizes. Permits us to modify the label text fonts. Utilizes very less battery and storage space. Launches fast. Allows to assign different actions to gestures like double tap, swipe up the screen, or down etc. This App has more customization than you have hair on your head. Full Review

    #1 Launcher- hands down. Now able to integrate Google Now using the add-on (Nova companion app) the best just keeps getting better; no resting on their laurels. Constant updates, bug fixes and improvements, Tesla really have their customers needs at heart. A sincere thanks. For those not using prime version yet, go for it- you will not be disappointed.

    Still one of the Best! The stock launchers are boring and plain. Nova Launcher Prime is one of the very best and popular launchers and will continue to be, I'm sure. So many customization apps, widgets and templates are available and there are a ton of tutorials and videos of how-to's, tips and tricks that you'll never run out of cool and interesting things to do on your Android. Keep up the good work, eh? Full Review

    It's a great launcher. I've tried some other launchers too but always end up with Nova. However would've been near to perfection if there are more two features. Burring wallpaper on app drawer - the translucent setting is pretty good, but to have blur option would make the icons stand out. Hold and drag icons on app drawer to rearrange icons - please make this comes true. Full Review

    Brilliance of this app It has more or less every option you could possibly be looking for. On top of that it's very user friendly! Worth paying £0.50. before I had the normal version and some options were locked and it told me I had to get prime....I thought it would be something like 2 pounds..But it's only 50p... Totally worth it Full Review

    I love Nova Launcher. I'm hooked for life now and won't use the default launcher on any of my phones from now on. I had to replace my phone recently and the stock launcher was terrible. I love all the shortcuts and clean look of Nova Launcher. Being able to remove icons and other apps from the screens and then using gestures for shortcuts is such a nice option. And I also love the scrolling dock and Desktop screens, the revolving door effect is awesome! Thanks Nova Launcher! Full Review

    I don't usually write reviews, but this launcher is so good I just had to. I have an LG phone, and I'm not a big fan of the skin that they use over Android. I got Nova launcher to solve that and it worked perfectly! It offers great customization, and got the paid version 2 weeks after installing. This really is a great launcher for anybody, from an Android beginner to avoid users who like tweaking every setting. Full Review

    This is my first time ever customizing my android, I usually stay with the stock launcher/look! But, I heard that Nova has been the most popular upgrade for some time. I decided to give it a go...let me just say I don't think I'll be giving any others a try just yet haha! Soooo many more options and different ways of setting up the device to YOUR liking! Now I'm just experimenting with different icon packs and widgets. Thanks for the great product! Full Review

    Best launcher on the Play Store.. Seriously no regrets purchasing this one... Highly recommended to Customisation enthusiasts... I have just one issue with this launcher... We don't have the option to arrange the icons in the app drawer in custom order... If you add this feature you will get my 5 stars.... Kudos to the Dev team for changing the way we use Android ✌️👌 Edit : Latest update is fantastic. Everything is noticeably faster and snappier. Thanks Tesla Coil 👌👍 Full Review

    I've had it for about two weeks. I bought it on sale and was just fiddling with it. Overall it's really impressive how well the customization functions work. The options given are pretty awesome allowance me to take what I liked from each version of Android and make it look and feel like the ideal version. The shortcut customisations are pretty swell allowing me to eliminate a few icons from the screen and reduce clutter. The snappiness of the UI is great. Can't wait to get deeper into this.

    Is there no Samsung Icon support? I've long-loved Nova, and have used the free version for years without issue... until I downloaded a theme (via Samsung Hub) for my Samsung S7. It comes with a new set of icons, but Nova doesn't give me any option to apply them. I've tried applying them from Nova settings as well as long-pressing each individual icon, to no avail. Yet, both the stock TouchWiz and Google Now launcher apply them just fine. This was actually the main reason I purchased Nova Prime, but unfortunately it hasn't made a difference. Full Review

    I have tried several types of launchers. I really liked the Google Now App but it doesn't work well with my ZTE phone. I debated whether to use Microsoft launcher or Tesla's Nova launcher. I chose Tesla. The Nova launcher works superbly well with my phone. It's fun to work with. I can make many alterations to the launcher and customize it to my liking. I love it! As a former graphic designer, I can attest to this launcher program. Plus, I am fond of Tesla and it's namesake, Nichola Tesla. I highly recommend this launcher for everyone to try out. What's next for me? A Tesla vehicle. P.S. The more I play with this launcher, the more amazed I am with it. I added the premium to my launcher. It's a small price to pay for such a superb launcher. And, rather easy to figure out its numerous capabilities. The more you play around with it, the more you appreciate it. Granted, there's lots of real good launchers out there, but this is one of the best. Full Review

    This launcher is great! I've used a lot of launchers to really customize my phone, but this one takes the cake. I didn't mind paying a couple bucks more to unlock all the features. The app drawer customization where you can make new tabs and folders for your apps for deeper organization is amazing. Full Review

    The Best Launcher for Android I've been using Nova Launcher Prime for the past 4 years and I've never been happier with an Android launcher. The best part of it is that you can arrange the speed of opening apps and you can customize icons and resize widgets just the way you want them. The Nova Launcher is very fast and it sure is much better than touch wiz for Samsung. I used Nova Launcher on the Galaxy s4 for 2 years and I'm currently using it on my Note 5 which has been 2 years also. I definitely recommend this for Samsung users. Full Review

    This launcher is actually good. I was really skeptical but oh my. It's perfect i really can't find a single flaw, nor would i want anything more. For my daily needs this launcher is beautiful. As i have an LG i can program to lock the phone knock code like with this launcher too its perfect. It's amazing how small and powerful this app is. 22mbs for both pro and this and the launcher does everything. You really are amazing! Full Review

    At first I thought why should I use a launcher which is like stock Android, when I already have a Stock Android phone (Previously I used a Android One device). But I installed it anyway just to see what's so great in this launcher that everyone likes it so much. Believe me, since then I'm using Nova launcher and haven't looked back. The customization it offers is simply awesome. Never slows my system down. And the updates to keep up with the latest Android looks is what I like the most. Full Review

    A simple yet surprisingly feature filled launcher. Very easy on the eyes when u customize it to your tastes but I does require tinkering here n there. Not to mention easy on the system itself. Only cons I have with this launcher is tht the apps don't auto group into categories on the home screen yet. Hope tht will be implemented in the future. All in all a very good launcher. Recommended.

    This is by far the best launcher I've had the chance to use. I tried experimenting with others, but I kept returning to this one. Why? Because it gets things done. Simple as that. It's quick, intuitive, and customizable to lengths you wouldn't believe. And it never gets in the way. To me, that makes a perfect app - doing what's intended to do and letting you get things done efficiently. Kudos! Full Review

    This is my go-to launcher! It's the first thing I ever install on a new phone. I paid for the prime version years ago. It's so customizable but also I love the fact that you can set it to 'faster than light' and if you also go into developer mode and turn off animations it can really make your phone snappy!

    Good day, developers. I find your launcher the best one ever. If you would be so kind enough, can you make the desktop and dock search bar independent in format or style from each other? I love the pill widget with the date on top of my home screen, but I also love the search bar with the rounded edges in the dock. However, I can't have them both in different styles. It would make me happy if you grant my request. Thank you for reading my review and have a nice day. Full Review

    Most launchers that come on phone are rubbish. One the truly great things about Android, and the thing that keeps bring me back year on year, is the ability to customise your own experience to suit you, and not have someone else tell you how to use your phone or tablet. Nova Launcher is the best launcher I have used and easily the most customisable. There are others which are superb, but none have the ability to get into the nuts and bolts as much as this one does. Keep up the great work. Full Review

    I've been using Android since G when it came out. This is one of my most favorite apps because the developer updates regularly and it's an amazing launcher and just keeps getting better with time and no nothing I've used can compare. Don't get me wrong there's some great launchers out there but for me there's just 1 and that's Nova Prime. Tks!! :) Full Review

    One of the best launchers for Android. I was skeptical about installing a third party launcher. But after watching some YouTube videos on what Nova launcher can do, I didn't think twice and purchased it. It seamlessly integrates with my OnePlus 5 software, and that's what makes this an excellent launcher. Combining with add-ons like sesame shortcuts and Zooper widgets, you can make tons of customisations. This app is not just about customisations. You can make your phone more efficient by adding shortcuts and all. A must- have app for those who want to make the best out of their smartphones. Full Review

    I couldn't figure out why my app icons kept disappearing on my new android 6 offbrand tablet. I read this could be a launcher issue so I looked around in the store and saw references to this app even on pages for other apps. In my case this has solved the issue and I love the crazy amount of customization and it looks like you can save your settings to put on another device as well. Nothing to complain about and five bucks is not expensive for all you get here. Full Review

    GREAT!! The best launcher I had so far. Definatly woeth every penny! The most customizable that I have seen. And super easy to use! I have a suggestion, it would be great if we could assign a different icon pack for desktop and for drawer. Because the desktop is more for great styles and customization, but the drawer is more for functionality. So sometimes it is more adequate a simpler icon pack. I know we can manually change, but it is very time consuming if we are constantly changing the desktop. Full Review

    The absolute best launcher I've used. Smooth, flawless, and very high quality - completely changes the look of your phone (in a good way!) and gives you complete control over its appearance. Such careful attention to details, neat tricks that improve ease of use and appearance - some personal favourites are the night mode, changing app icons, folders, font choices, transition animations... It's all there. I don't think I could ever go back to vanilla android after having this, it'd be like eating a pizza without any cheese on it. Many blessings to the developers behind this.

    Awesome app. Saves your home screen settings and organizes apps so that you don't lose your mind due to Android's cluttered way of handling apps. One of the best features is the ability to lock the home screen (and easily open it by long pressing a button) so that your icons don't disappear to other screens (or nowhere), as they are wont to do on Android. I was about 1 day from giving up on Android and defecting to the iPhone when I found this app! Full Review

    I thoroughly enjoy the app. I spend the few dollars on the prime, and enjoy it. All I could want is for the implimentation of a page to the left of the home screen, like Google Now on the Google Now launcher, or Shelf on the OnePlus devices. Just somewhere where you can put widgets, and some customization options. Doesn't have to be exactly like all those others, just something over there. If people don't want it, they can just disable it. Full Review

Update: you need to fix the swipe gestures in landscape mode. I have my music played on a group I swipe off of and I can never get it to work right. Portrait? Flawless. Landscape?

    One last thing... I absolutely love that you added pixel launcher features to this launcher. However, it would be so much better if you add a setting to adjust the position of the pixel style search bar because for me, it is just too close to the notification bar and looks a bit odd. It would also be nice to have the google now shortcut from the left side of the home screen just like in Pixel phones. Those key features are what's keeping me from giving 5 stars, but nonetheless this is still the best launcher ever. Full Review

    I've been a Nova launcher user for many many years. I've never looked back at the stock launcher. Although Google Now launcher and Pixel launcher are ok to me, they aren't even close to the level of customisation that Nova allows. You'll be able to customise literally everything about your launcher, and the cool thing is that the number of customisations and available options keeps increasing, allowing us to get a more and more enjoyable experience at each update. Nova Launcher prime will be one of those purchases you'll never regret! Full Review
