Nova Launcher For Android Gets More Important Features

Friday, August 18, 2017

Hello readers, you all must be well-aware that there’s a huge user base for Android launchers. Also, the list of Android launchers doesn’t seem to end either.

Among all, Nova launcher is an all-in-one launcher. It’s a top-notch app loaded with numerous functionalities. To be frank, we consider Nova as the best launcher in our list. It has a great level of customizability options without compromising resource usage or performance for FREE. There’s a prime version to it, but there’s not much of a difference apart from some inaccessible advanced features in the free version.

Well, recently we observed Nova 4.2.0 beta 5 build which includes some new features. As an overview, it comes with 3 new options (comment below if you find some more, and if you’re reading this from a newsreader app then come over to our link to let us know if you observe some more “added” options).

Update: Beta 6 comes with enable/disable fast scrollbar.

What’s New?

  1. Fast scroll / over scroll color can be changed (Scroll accent color)
  2. Enable/Disable Pull to search
  3. App search background matches with the Card background of the app drawer

It includes some bug fixes as well.
Have a look on some of the screenshots:

As it’s a beta build, it would land at the Play Store soon enough. You can download the APK file here. If you don’t want the beta, click on the button below to get the launcher directly from the Play Store.
