What launcher do you use?

2015-04-30, 1:55 AM

Just wondering what people find best for this phone. I'm using Nova Launcher Beta (material design) with the icon pack Yitax. The weather widget is Weather Timeline. All great material design apps while we wait for 5.1. How about you?

I use the Google Launcher, because of the google now cards. They are very
useful for me. Especially when I am on travel.

Nova Launcher.  Google Now cards are only a swipe away (from the bottom).



I hated the Google search bar requirement for the GNL....and IIRC, always having an extra homescreen to the Right.

I found the same thing... first I realised how much space for my agenda widget i saved by eliminating the dock and then the search bar, and eventually even the status bar (but i have a swipe down gesture to open the notification bar). And google search and now are only an upwards swipe away.

I agree with you that Nova is great. I don't like the Google search bar always at the top. That was my main reason for switching to Nova, but I have found so many other reasons to stick with Nova now. It is so much more customizable that I could never go back to a stock launcher.

To the OP: wow, that Yitax icon pack is beautiful. That's a very nice set up you have. I'm just using the stock KitKat launcher at the moment but seeing your setup makes me want to try out Nova or Action launcher.

I totally agree that Nova launcher is the best for Moto x in terms of performance , stability and speed. Google launcher is alright because u can't customize anything in that.

Yeah, Yitax is beautiful. I was using Alos by the same dev but when I saw Yitax I bought it right away. It's stunning and the developer is super dedicated, he adds 15+ icons weekly and now has over 3000 for this pack alone. Also, Nova Prime is definitely worth it... $5 for endless tweaking.

I use Nova Prime. I require the ability to change my icons. Differently shaped and sized icons would really annoy me.
