Nova Launcher Review

Nova Launcher reviewerMarc

A lot of home screen launchers will force you to stick app icons in a specific manner, but Nova Launcher gives you the freedom to place apps anywhere on your screen, whether they fit on a grid or not. This means that instead of there being gaps between each one, you can fit your icons right up against one another if you prefer.


Set Theme


There are several themes to choose between when you download the Nova Launcher app to customize your home screen. Most of them remind me of the traditional desktop backgrounds for computers, but if you don't mind having just a simple color theme with shapes or designs, then you will more than likely be happy with the selection.


On top of having different themes to select, you will also be able to choose whether you want to keep your phone in bright mode or set a timer to turn the dark mode off at a specific time each day. You can also leave the night mode on all the time to create a dark mode effect.


Select Icon Layout


My favorite feature of the app is the icon customization portion. Not only can you place your app icons anywhere that you want on the home screen of your device, but you can also change their size, remove labels from beneath them, and even alter the color scheme if you'd like.


Customize Commands


Another exciting option given to users of Nove Launcher is having the ability to alter the gestures you use to navigate your device. Rather than merely tapping everything, you can choose to pinch, tap, swipe, and several other gestures to perform actions on your phone or tablet.


There is a multitude of ways to customize the look and feel of your device when you use Nova Launcher. Whether you are looking for an app that will organize all of your icons for you, or you're looking for something that will give you more control over the gestures to control your device, Nova Launcher will provide you with all the tools you need to transform your phone.
