Nova Launcher, a highly customizable, performance driven, home screen replacement for Android is among the best and most well-known third-party launchers ever available. The application turns 5 this week and gets a new update for its users.
Yes! Nova Launcher gets updated to Prime 5.0, rolls out several beta features, and brings a list of amazing useful tools for the users. With the new update to Prime 5.0, Nova gets Pixel-y features including pill search bar, tinted dock, swipe to open an application and more.
The update brings another Pixel like feature called "Quick Start" hidden at the Backup and Import Setting option of the Android device, which will allow the users to quickly change some Nova features like the Dark theme, app drawer style, and dock style. Although not as swift as the Pixel, this brand new feature will let the users change multiple settings instantly without going through the trouble to dig through the individual menus.
The application with the new update also gets Android 7.1 launch shortcuts, which will enable the users to perform more actions than just editing and removing when long pressing an app.
Not only this, the new Nova update has also expanded the gestures yet again, which will include double-tap swipe gestures along with some new secured screen shot methods for the users.
