Best Launcher Took me some restraint to append an "Ever" to the Best Launcher title. Nova Launcher is frequently updated—it's even got material animations!—and the overall user experience is smooth and mostly lag free (look, my phone's tech-ancient, okay?). And the customisation possibilities are pretty much endless. What more can an Android fan girl want?

Ah, Launchers... I probably tried every launcher there is to try, but in the end I always come back to Nova. Has all the features I need, the looks I need, it's easy enough to get around, I bought the Prime version and I'm able to set different tabs in the drawer. Beta testing this app too.
Accept no substitutes! Nova Launcher is the original and most polished customizable launcher for modern Android
