Is there a basic launcher that allows trasparency on non-rooted Nexus 5? I used Holo Beta from the playstore before but it does not seem to work on Kit Kat. 4.4.2

Thanks folks!

I think you need more details than this? If you're non-rooted, does that mean you are on stock ROM as well?

If you're on stock, the base standard out-of-the-box launcher supports transparent navigation bar and status bar? You can't get much more basic than out-of-the-box!

If you don't mean navigation bar and status bar, which transparency are you referring to?

Or do you mean "basic" as in lighter and simpler than the stock launcher?

All of the major launchers have transparent top and bottoms. If not download nova beta, apex, etc. They should be up to date by now. My personal favorite is nova but it is your choice.

Hope this helps, please clarify if this is not what you were asking.
