Looks nice but says it's not compatible with my stock unrooted 10.1.

I tried it works fast even the ok Google works the only reason I'm not using it now is because every time I press the home button and it goes to the home screen the keyboard pops up

Works great with the Google Search 3.1 update which has fixed a lot of the bugs on non Nexus 5 devices, a few bugs remain though; when in landscape if you press & hold an app from the app drawer to uninstall there's no visible options like on previous launchers e.g. "App info" & "Uninstall", on further inspection if you drag it to the top left somewhere it'll go Blue & take you to "App info", on portrait everything is as normal, those same options appear etc. so I'd say bugs still need ironing out but it's still very usable.

Also in landscape the X is missing when removing apps from the home screen but again if you drag to the very edge (top left) it'll go Red & delete app shortcuts etc.

There is several KitKat Launchers which one are you talking about? Are you talking about this "New Google Experience Launcher" post over on phandroid? If not could you please post a link or mention which one you guys are talking about please & thanks

So I already had the files on my SD Card & the Google Home Apk installed fine & seems to be working fine. The Google now is responsive & fast. If you want the APK link is below

Well the Launcher installed fine on my tab 3 8.0 but I didn't have OK google on the home screen and after I changed languages I lost it on google search page as well... Velvet wouldn't install... I already have the newest google search and play services though so I thought all I would need is the Launcher? What am I doing wrong... I'm used to gel as that's what I have been using on my s3 for months now... Would love to get it working on my tablet as well...
