Nova Launcher Beta (ICS-based) for Samsung Galaxy Nexus

Nova Launcher Beta (ICS-based) for Samsung Galaxy Nexus

For those of you wishing to try an alternative ICS based launcher, take a look at XDA Senior member [email protected]‘s latest offering.

Nova Launcher is a launcher replacement based on the stock ICS Launcher and hence will only run on phones already running ICS.

Nova Launcher can install alongside the stock launcher and should work on any ICS ROM. However, in order for the widgets-in-drawer feature to work it must be installed as a system app.

Features include:

  • Custom grid size
  • User setting for auto-rotate
  • Resize any widget
  • All/New/Downloaded categories in App Drawer
  • Widgets-in-drawer
  • Shortcut or resizable information in Widget Drawer
  • Edit App Shortcut icon and label
  • Wallpaper scrolling options
  • Cube desktop effect

For more information, head on over to the application thread.

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
