Aviate is cardsy and smart, with profiles and auto app categorisation. I will, however, be sticking to Nova, because customisation(!). Need me some of that sweet customisation, so Aviate isn't for me. If you're looking for a really smart, informative launcher, you might fall in love with it.

Great intuitive launcher, which focuses on the essential things, to give users exactly the information he will need at the most! This launcher isn't so customizable as others, but much clearer! P.S.: At the moment only for smartphones available!

This is my favourite launcher. It comes with the ability to adjust it's display/layout (spaces) to your location, hardware (headset plugged in) time of day. These "spaces" show apps or widgets you set for the category or preference. It also ties into foursquare when traveling. Talk about making your life easier it also auto categorises your apps by type and makes suggestions based on these categories. The layout is beautiful in black, white or transparent. But my favourite feature is probably the music player system. It provides twitter feed or Facebook info on the artist being played. Frequent updates as well.

A small and quick launcher (fully replaces your Homescreen to make your experience look and feel different) that changes based on your location. It's not highly customisable like Buzz or Nova but it helps you feel more organized. Rumor is typing YAHOO as an unlock code will get you into this awesome beta app.
