When you install nova launcher in your phone you will find it very simple. But It isn’t simple. You can customize it according to you.

If you want more features then you can buy nova prime. $1.30. The thing that I miss in Nova is the wallpaper and themes.

In Nova settings, you can customize the following things

Desktop: You can control Icon layout, Padding, Search bar settings, Scroll animation etc.

App & Widget Drawers: You can do things like App Drawer style, Card background, Swipe to open, colors etc.

Dock: Dock means Apps that available on Home Page. You can add more pages, enable/disable this, icon settings, Padding etc.

Folders: Here folder means when you place more than one app then It will automatically create a folder. Here you can change color, layout settings of that folder.

Look & Feel: I think this is the most important settings that will you like. You can control animation, scroll settings, icon settings, and search color.

Nigh Mode: I hope you know about search settings. Basically, you can change background black or white and text will reciprocal of that.

Gesture & inputs:  Gesture means action should happen on the Long press, Ok Google settings, and for the most of some settings you need to Buy Nova prime

Integrations: You can integrate a search app that you need to download from play store. If you do this then you can search for anything like SMS, WhatsApp Messages, apps etc.

To get List of full features to watch this Quick Video

This is one of the most advanced launchers. You will get all nova settings but using this you can have more features like adaptive Icons, font settings, You can even change app icon and name (You Need the Paid version for this).

Some settings that are paid in the nova launcher like Swipe Fingers you will get free in action theme.


The Biggest Limitation I found in this app is that you need to pay money for most of its features. If you are using the android phone from a very long time then you know in the earlier day we have app widgets option.

You will get this feature in this app. Sometimes we Need to create widgets of Gmail or Whatsapp. If you swipe Left you will get a full list of apps and on the right-hand side, you can place widgets.

Customizing Google Search bar is the biggest feature of this app.

3. CM Launcher 3D- Personalised, Secure, Efficient

4. ADW Launcher 2

You know when I open this theme in the play store. I was thinking about why I’m writting about this theme. But Once I install it then I found that is amazing.

From the above apps, this has the most customization features. You can change icon appearance, change themes, Add widgets, Create your own widgets. Create app Category, Scrolling, and animation effects.

Settings that I found in the app you will get in getting in any Other app. For some apps, you will get also iPhone 3d touch feature.

There is nothing that you can’t customize using this app. Adding Own widgets I did not get this functionality in any other app.

Actually, there are so many functions in this so I don’t know what to explain. I mean using you can even Control icon effects.

5. C Launcher: Themes, Wallpapers, DIY, Smart, Clean

People who prefer transparency over colors should try C launcher. This is the main thing about this. You will also hide apps and protect them by password.

You will also bet 1 one booster Ram free ( You can use this but it is useless features You can use this if you like it). You will also get themes to option in this.

But the best thing about this I already told you. The Next Big feature is that you can create a theme by yourself.

which is insane. Like the above apps, you will also get icon packs and wallpaper option.

6. Hyperion Launcher

If you like customization but more than that you want an already build awesome theme then try this. The best thing I like about this is that It looks a& Feel. It looks premium.

Don’t worry this is fast enough. App size is 4.4 Mb only. But you will get any Gesture or customization settings.

You can add widgets.  If you want to customize the app icon then you can need to download the icon package from the play store. Moral if you don’t like default one then you can give it a chance.

7. Tsf Launcher 3D Shell

This is one of my favorite launchers.  If you more advance Gesture settings, 3d widgets, all things in single place then you should use Tsf Launcher.

But make sure your phone screen is not small. If It is small then sorry my friend it is not for you.  You will get favorite contact list like ios. You call or SMS without opening the app.

People who remain busy on the phone and use alot of apps Tsf can be perfect for them. I will advise you to watch Video.

8. Google Now Launcher

As clear from its name, this is from Google. If you don’t like too much customization what you need to fast, clean and easy to use launcher then try this.
