Five Android-only apps worth a look

Nova Launcher

Nova Launcher has been my go-to home screen launcher for a long time. It shows off how important flexibility is to the Android platform, giving you just enough customization to make your Android home screen precisely what you want—and not much more. With features like custom gestures, custom app drawer, and Ok Google support, a better-designed home screen launcher would be hard to find on any platform.
