Fine, I respect that.
I've just read the features request on Nova's Google plus community.
Q. Please add the pixel style Google feed.
A. Please contact Google.
That's nothing to do with nova.
Q. Please add at a glance widget.
A. Nova can't add that as it doesn't have the correct APIs from Google for it to work.
Q. Please add Android P style dock.
A. Please read the pinned post, you must not request android P features.
Q. Please add the Google search bar in app draw
A. That's not something nova feels the need to add at this time.
Ok, so you don't like lawn chair.
I respect that.
I have used nova for over 5 years as a loyal paying customer but answer me why does nova lie to its users like this and tell them thet their request is not technically possible or they simply won't add any such feature?
Yet along comes every other fresher and newer current launcher that adds those features without any hassle?
And I'm not a me to person, I'm a very loyal nova user that's very concerned about Nova's lack of recent developments.
The other launchers have had recent updates or new features added.
Nova has promised huge updates for close to a year now and I've seen nothing.
If you think that's being entitled, fine, think that, but that's the sort of answer I'm used to seeing from Nova's own obnoxious rude and agressive G+ community staff, not in a much friendlier place like this.
And comments like yours are why I'm complaining.
Nova does not like a few home truths and throws it's rattle our of the pram when its users say something is better, just like you just have.
And that's the problem, complacency and conceitedness.
Nova has always prided itself on being its own launcher and not like all the others. They also dont add every feature just because. Sure a bunch of other launchers add them but if you are gonna use an app for a feature that they copied from another app, then you might as well use the other app anyway.
Many of the answers are old. And to be honest those features are not as wanted as many think. To be honest, all of those you listed I am happy that it doesnt have.
Comments like mine are very blunt. Yes. But that is the way of the world.
You have seen nothing? Hmm guess you missed the huge deal they made with an OEM. Also remember. Sure we paid for it but that was how much? How long ago? You dont want the plain business truth of that.
People are soo hung up on updates. The FOMO is so rampant in the mobile community that it really is killing individuality. That is Nova major claim. That they are not like other launchers.
