It requires no root access which might compromise manufactures guarantees and warranties, yet will negate the negative performance effects all the doodads and trinkets that manufacturers find necessary to install, but which most users never look at or use. Nova Launcher represents a highly customisable, sleek, fast, and modern interface that does away with all of the above yet provides extensive utility and appearance customisations with an absolute minimal effect on performance. It allows users to set up and screens according to personal preferences, offering tons of icon packs, a multitude of colour schemes, scrollable docks that provide app drawer customising, infinite settings for scrolling and folders. The magnitude of available options in all areas must be seen to be believed, yet remain rock stable while doing so.
