Questions & Answers

Q: What is an APK File?

A: Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same. An APK file is the file format used for installing software on the Android operating system.

Q: If I install an APK from this website, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading).
As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.

Q: Why can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Q: What are Android App permissions?

A: Apps require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.

User's Reivew

5 ★Can't imagine going back to the default Android setup. This is better in every way. Causes no problems, doesn't interrupt in any way, just sits there quietly giving you the setup you want.
5 ★So far it's free and good. I've been using this launcher for a while and I appreciate having it to use for free. I got it because another app for making icon packs worked with Nova. Since then I've kept it because it's just an all around good launcher. I'm half scared to give a good review because every time I like an app that's free and ad free, as soon as I leave a good review they change everything I like and either put in ads or make you pay for features. Please don't do that, guys.
3 ★This was nice. Initially. I had such a good experience customizing my home page that I bought the prime and now I regret it because I can't customize my app drawer. Apps can only be arranged from A-Z which makes no sense to me. My app folders are ordered A-Z too. I can rearrange the apps in the folder however I like but that's not what I want :( If this feature is ever added, this app is 5 stars, 100%
5 ★Long time user first time reviewer here. Recently upgraded my phone, and this app is a MUST! This app has followed me thru a few phone upgrades throughout the years.I absolutely love the customisable look and feel this gives your phone. This app is a true treasure and optimizes the android experience!
5 ★The best launcher for android. Period. Been using it for years and will be using it for up-and-coming years. Never faced a single bug or a glitch in the launcher in all my days of usage, speaks volumes on its pristine development. Willing and ready to ditch any stock launcher for Nova.
2 ★I've used this launcher for years with no issues. I have the s20+ and it keeps reverting back to the phones original phone launcher. I have to press the home button for it to "refresh" back to the Nova Launcher. I'm presuming the latest update caused this to happen. Unfortunately I'm going to uninstall it, hoping it'll be fixed in the near future.
5 ★I have been using this for years. However, my phone was just upgraded to Android 11 and all of the app badgers are not working. I'm sure you're aware of this. When I switch to the One UI, everything works fine. I went into the Nova settings > Badges and it says to make sure Nova is authorized for notifications. I did and it is. Is there a work around for this yet?
5 ★Nice and easy to personalize your phone with the Nova Launcher. Has some nice transitions that the default launcher doesn't, and many more features can be customized thanks to Nova. Highly recommend this Launcher to anyone looking for a nice change and for free!
5 ★This is the best launcher ever! Although I have some suggestions: 1. A scrollable widget page, like in Microsoft Launcher; 2. More gestures, like swiping left, right, etc; 3. Presets. It's annoying when you want it to be like the Pixel or Samsung launcher, so implementing this is great. Other than that, this is a great launcher. :)
5 ★Been meaning to install this for a while . . . only wish I'd done it earlier. Simply amazing and when you incorporate the compatible icon packs - WOW ! You end up with a fone that you can tweak so much to suit. Mine's a Samsung and it has made it look so much better. The developer has done a great job and I am gonna pay for the prime to unlock those little extras.
5 ★Best home launcher app out there! If I could give it 10 stars I would. Free version is packed with customization options and no ads. Haven't tried the paid version yet but it looks even better. Every update is smooth with great new features. Sets the bar for other apps!
4 ★Great app and would definitely recommend but I have one minor annoyance. I am using an s20 ultra, with gesture controls and when I swipe up to the home screen from any app, there is a slight hiccup. When I get to the home screen, it shows the apps then the home screen clears and appears to refresh before letting me do anything. This entire process takes a fraction of a second but watching it each time kills the smooth and fluid feeling of the rest of the launcher. Would record if it would fix it
