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!

Aviate is a intelligent launcher. Using foursquare, it tracks you at times to create collections of apps for you to use. If it's night, it will continue to be helpful, and it can even suggest apps for a collection! while it's not the best for tablets, is amazing in portrait mode!

This app is in its alpha testing version,hence its an invite only.I got my invite after about a month,so I will try to give you an idea of this app.Merge together Smart launcher and the whiteness of the new ios7,and you will have something similar to aviate launcher.It gives you 4 screens which you can swipe through.By sliding through left of your home screen you will find a bar called "Spaces".In the home screen by default you have a calender and weather widget,which is quite nice,and at the bottom you can keep 8 favorite apps(8 only,no folders in home screen yet)If you swipe right from your homescreen,you'll find something called as "collections",which is basically categories of various apps.There are a lot of categories,but I found many of those to be pretty useless and you cannot create new categories.You can move one app from one category to another though,but its bit difficult as you can move an app from one category to another visible within the page,if your category is not visible you have to go to that in steps,which is just unsmart;but anyways,you can move the categories in accordance to your preference.Another swipe towards right and you come across a vertically scrollable and alphabetically arranged app drawer. Its not your launcher,if you are a fan of customization.

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.
