Depends on what you want out of a launcher. There are several on the play store, some free and some not (most of the paid ones have free versions), so play with them to find the one you like best. Nova is popular right now, but I’m using smart launcher right now mainly because i like the simplistic nature of it. 4 isn’t much, but they do have a free version you can check out first if you like, then depending on whether or not you want it you can spend your money.
Nova! I ran with the free version for a few days. Brought Nova Prime without thinking about it. Running it with Stark Icons on all my devices Im a real big fan of Apex Launcher. it keeps that vanilla feel but adds all the features stock forgot. swipe actions and long press icon control it really is great just give it a try
have both Nova Prime and Apex Pro. My personal preference is for Apex. Of course everyone is gonna tell you what their favorite is (remember that; it’s not the “best,” it’s just their favorite). That said, why don’t you give the free versions a test drive, then decide. Only you can decide what’s best for you and your uses.
add to the madness, Nova Launcher is popular right now AND a real good launcher with tons of customizations to mess with. Of course it has a paid version that you can purchase but I, personally don’t like paying for launchers even if its a few bucks. They’re not worth it to me but that’s my point of view.
I like Apex Launcher and ADW Launcher which is good for older phones running older OS’ such as 2.3.6. Stock on the Nexus 7 is still an awesome choice w/an awesome experience! Download any that you haven’t tried and see how they look and feel to you. Good luck and happy hunting launcher is the best and the fastest I’ve ever used, but if you want something different use Atom.
