If you're not a fan of the stock launcher that comes on your Android phone, chances are, you've taken some time to search through the Google Play Store to find something that is suitable as a replacement. One of the more popular options is from TeslaCoil Software with Nova Launcher. The updates are consistent, new features are always being added, and that seems to be the case with its latest version, 5.5.

As far as what's new, the app description states the addition of:

  • Adaptive icons for Android 5.0+
  • Intelligently reshape legacy icons to adaptive
  • Android 8.1 style popup menu (Look Feel - Popup menu - Block)
  • Searchbar in dock
  • Replace searchbar in dock with any widget (Long-press -Replace)

If this is something that interests you, you can head to the Google Play Store to download it. In order to unlock the full potential of the launcher, you will have to purchase the full version for $4.99.
