Editors' Review

Tired of the look of your Android phone? Replace your home screen with Nova Launcher and change the way you interact with your device.


Highly customizable: What visual element can't you change with Nova Launcher is the question. You can control the size of the grid on your home screen and set the number of rows and columns. You can also modify icons and choose different backgrounds for folders.

Scrolling everywhere: Nova lets you add more icons to its scrollable dock; set custom scrolling effects when flipping between home screens, and have your home screens loop endlessly.

Backup and restore your settings: Nova can save your launcher settings to restore a favorite layout after changing to a new one or when moving to a new phone.

Free or paid: A $4.99 Prime version adds Nova-specific gestures and swipes. You also gain the ability to hide never-used apps and group apps into tabs and folders in your app drawer.


Setup is a bit overwhelming: With Nova Launcher giving you so much control over the look and feel of your phone -- and giving you almost endless ways to do it -- initially setting up the launcher can feel overwhelming. The app tries to walk you through the process, but it's a bit of trial to make your way through all the settings.

Bottom Line

Nova Launcher is a surprising deep launcher that lets you change the look of your android phone. While you can seemingly rearrange, change, organize, and swipe your screen all day and not run out of options, the endless choices can seem a bit off-putting at first.
