    Aviate Beta

    This is for all Android device users... and yes, I'm advertising this launcher because it's swanky.

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...l.aviate&hl=en


    I was dicking around in the play store looking for widgets and whatnot, and I come across this launcher that's in closed beta, and it's kinda cool. I applied for an invite code and got it a few days later. Its options are currently limited but hey, it's a beta. If anybody is interested I have 5 invite codes to send out, just post or pm your email and the first 5 will get an invite.

    Anyway, It's pretty neat. It currently has 2 themes, Light and Dark. Light is a white general background for pretty much every page on your home screen, and dark is just a dark gray. There's no specific background image so it's kinda odd. You can have one or more pictures displayed, or even a widget. The only downside apart from the lack of personal customization is the fact that the home screen doesn't rotate to the side (can only view in portrait, not landscape).

    It has time specific themes that roll out during the day, like for example: night time will display certain icons pertaining to what people do during that time of the day. Night time = clock/alarm and netflix pop up for me.

    You also have 'Spaces', which allow for different icons to be displayed on your main home screen according to which 'Space' you have activated. You can't edit the names of the 3 default options nor can you add any (it's only in beta). Activating a different 'Space' (i.e work) will give you a different icon preset such as gmail and others, while the "going somewhere" will give you maps, etc.

    I prefer this launcher to others like Apex or Nova, simply because it's sleek and smooth. It limits customization dramatically but it's clean. Instead of having 3-5 pages where there's a few apps on each, you scroll to the side and you have 'collections' that you can edit to have all your apps organized and easily accessible.

    I took a few screenshots, not all the features are shown because I'm a lazy bastard.

    Pretty useful app, but the fact that it's invite only isn't really worth posting as invites will be limited

    So, I gave myself an invite and I'm now in and have 5 invites.
    I might be handing them out in the give-away section later.

    Here's some pictures of it.
    Oh, I should mention 18+.
