    Nova Launcher is one of the most popular third party launchers on the Google Play Store, and for good reason. Nova launcher is a great way to get the stock look and feel on your device. If you are running a skin such as Sense 6.0 or Touchwiz this launcher can really come in handy. Today Nova released an update. Included in the update are a few new features. The biggest feature is the inclusion of the "Ok Google" hotword. This does require that you are on Jelly Bean. Other features include Subgrid positioning which makes for more flexible layouts, Dynamica Calendar Icons, and new Color options. You can head to the play store now to grab the update!

    Buggy, but works when the device is awake.
    Does NOT work when it's sleeping, obviously that may be impossible to replicate.

    I'm a beta user and have received an update at least daily. They will have it ironed out shortly. Great launcher.

    Nova looks a little long in the tooth unfortunately. It really does look dated.

    Something about the UI... When I install it alongside the new GO launcher, it just doesn't look as nice.

    Just personal preference...
