Nova Launcher is one of the most popular 3rd-party launchers in the world. Android is the most customizable OS in the world and it can be branded as it’s a perfect accessory.

In some ways, your device looks to little gestures that make all the difference. The stock-keeping launcher offers a lot of features that can truly enhance your smartphone experience.

If you want to add more features on your Home screen and add extra excitement to your day-to-day digital life, then getting Nova Launcher may very well be the best course of action.

Its developers give users the option to try out the launcher before shelling out their hard-earned dollars. The base version is available for free on Google Play.

The paid version, Nova Launcher Prime, costs $4.99 and comes with all the bells and whistles you could possibly want. At under $5, Nova Launcher is an excellent investment, but if you’re too short on cash, there is another launcher you could try.
