Nova Launcher Brings Jelly Bean Goodness To Ice Cream Sandwich

Android: Nova Launcher recently updated to include lots of Jelly Bean features. The popular Android launcher for ICS devices also brings the ability to import settings from other launchers for a seamless transition.

Earlier this week, Apex Launcher updated to include Jelly Bean’s automatic widget resizing, flick-to-remove feature and performance improvements. Nova Launcher has followed suit with its latest beta, but it brings in another, even more awesome feature: the ability to import settings from other launchers, which means you don’t need to set up your home screens all over again.

Both Apex and Nova are pretty equal when it comes to features, however Lifehacker reader Nihilexistentialist notes that performance may vary between phones. If you can’t decide which one to use, give them both a shot on your phone to see which one works the best.

Nova Launcher is a free download for Android phones running Ice Cream Sandwich and above. To upgrade to the beta, just open up Nova Launcher’s settings, go to Check for Updates, and click the menu button in the upper right-hand corner. Tap “Beta” and check for updates to get the latest beta version.
