Accept no substitutes! Nova Launcher is the top launcher for modern Android, embracing full Material Design throughout.

Nova Launcher replaces your home screen with one you control and can customize. Change icons, layouts, animations and more.

For my money, Nova Launcher is the best of the AOSP-style launchers available in Android. --Android Police
Nova Launcher has some very capable hands behind it --Phandroid
Our favorite is Nova Launcher, which strikes a great perfect balance between incredible performance and high customizability without getting too gimmicky and difficult to use --Lifehacker
Chock full of features you won't find in the stock launcher, and comes highly recommended --Android Central

    • Sorry about the 404, guys. It’s the “#” character in the name that’s causing it. We’re working on a fix ASAP.

    APK Mirror has gotten itself a crack! Such a trusted source of “get it out there first reporting” for us techies who just love to see what our fav apps and devs will bring to us next will surely have this rectified or explained in no time! Keep your faith my friends! – Regards, The Judge

    • It’s fixed now. All was due to the # character in the file name thanks to, in turn, the same # character being in the version number.

      • Judge Mountain

        +Artem Russakovskii! To fine of an institution to let a crack in the mirror slow you guys down LOL – Thanks for being on top of the comments it means a lot to us to know that you’re listening! Enjoy your day mate! – Regards,+Judge Mountain
