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.

Android never had any lack of launcher, too. But this launcher is worth the try because what it lacks in customization, it makes up with sleek interface that can adapt based on time and location. Still lacking many features, but hey, that's what beta is all about.

Aviate is a very innovative launcher which adapts itself based on where you are and what time it is. There are different screens which show a different set of apps and shortcuts for different purposes like work, home, on the go etc. The app searches through your apps and assigned apps you have to each screen based on what they do. It also has a cool functionality which is that it will use gps to pinpoint where you are to find popular landmarks like restaurants and allow you to check in on foursquare, take a picture and leave a review on yelp. This is a very good app but you need a beta code to access it, fortunately the waiting list takes less that a few days so they aren't difficult to come by.
Aviate is in invite-only beta to ensure a quality experience for our current users. You can request an invite from the app, and we are working as fast as we can to get all of you to try Aviate soon. Thank you for your patience!
