I keep seeing posts about how good Nova launcher is for the Nexus, but I cant seem to find it in the market. What search terms do I use to find it? I've tried 'nova' and 'nova launcher' to no avail. Thanks.
newbie here...how do u install an apk? im trying to get nova without rooting
Make sure you can install apps from unknown sources by going into setting-->security-->check the box for unknown sources. Save the file to your phone and open it with something like astro file manager. Then just follow the prompts on the screen to install the apk file.
DLed the nova launcher. Works great. Keeps all of ICS goodness and adds in what I was using on my previous phone with go launcher - like additional home screens, landscape orientation, dock options, etc.
And its from the maker of widget locker which has always been high quality.
This launcher is perfect! I can't say enough how happy I am with it.
Got rid of the search bar at the top, not that it really bothered me but it was wasting space, I am able to add more columns and rows as well as resize Widgets
Only things I need now is a little better battery life and better reception, both of witch I hope comes with an update or rom in the future.
