    There shouldn't be any wait anymore, as it's out of beta today.

    I'm on the fence with this one... I used it loads during beta, and absolutely loved it.

    The changes that have been implemented in the final version will take some getting used to for me...

    Also... A bit buggy... It won't register that I'm home or at work, it won't register my correct placement when looking at weather under "Today"(not even the same country).

    So I'm not sure if I'll stick with it... Will give it a couple of days and decide.

    Ah. Thank you for the tip! I'll have to play around with it to see if I like it or not.
    Right now I'm really confused by everything so I don't know.

    You do know what Aviate does right? It is a predicative launcher, the permissions makes sense and this is from Yahoo, so it's trustworthy.

    I like Nova, but I like having to do less with my launcher even more.

    True, but I like Aviates simpler interface, especially with the weather and news integrated directly into the launcher.

    It was at 13℅ usage after being unplugged for two or three hours this morning. I'll give it another try and see what happens.

    I've noticed that it seems a touch slow on recognizing where I am. For example, it gives me the today space rather than home or work much of the time when I am at home or at work. Not sure if that is by design or not. Other than that I don't seem to be getting as much drain on the battery this time around, about what I got with Nova. I guess I hadn't given it enough time on my last go.

    Didn't know about this. Didn't stick with launchers with all the configuring and reliance on stock or Gmail.
    Yahoo has always been my main mail so I will give this a try.
    Much thanking of your you-ness!

    It has some bugs that still need work, and I disagree with some of the design direction they went to. But as far as being intuitive, functional, contextually aware, and closely adhering to a real google look and feel it's THE launcher in its category imo

    It just makes me feel like this is how a modern google android UI ought to look like. Those older aosp launchers like nova, apex etc just feel dated to me

    Using it today to tour across the countryside today, the Nearby feature was great for finding attractions and restaurants ( with reviews) along the way. Very cool to have built right into the UI and integrates well with google Now and Maps

    nay. tried it for a few days. MUCH more complicated than apex and nova. and any launcher whose app drawer is broken down with A apps B apps and so on is ridiculously unwieldy.

    also am not a fan of yahoo digest, which is a complete waste of time, and aviate forcing it on me is a downer.

    Yahoo new digest is a mainstay on my device. Condensed top news stories the world over is exactly something I love.

    I've never tried Aviate before right now and it instantly joins Action Launcher in my top 2 launchers! Thanks for the tip A895!

    That's what worries me, what with Yahoo's extensive history of massive database breaches, leaks, and compromises.

    I can't say something to alay your fears because I don't think Yahoo is anymore vulnerable than any other company, and let's not forget that this an app they aren't trying to steal all the things, it's a launcher like any other launcher it is just more adaptive.

    It is an interesting launcher with a good UI but it's not for me. I want my Launcher to get out of the way. and into whatever app I'm trying to use. This launcher makes launching an app too complicated, things are always moving around so you're never quite sure where to look to do what you are trying to do.
