Well to be honest this has never been a Nice place persay. The the only thing that has changed over the years are the users. (Well and managements handling of it.)
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.
Those points are very true and very well known, but
That's not the point I made..... but it's still a valid point none the less.
I know paying for nova prime doesn't entitle me to anything.
I'm not asking for anything.
I'm trying to make a point that nova themselves are saying they going to update folders, and various other stuff, and it hasn't happened.
I don't care if nova adds that stuff I listed and i dont want that stuff.
If nova explained they won't add new stuff because they simply don't want too, I would feel more comfortable about that decision.
If I was representing an app and a company like nova and Tesla coil, I wouldn't dare answer such questions with a comment like you made.
I would try my best to offer a reasonable explanation of those fears and try my best to keep that user as a nova user.
If long term users are walking away, surely nova should try to keep those once loyal and long term users?
I do really thank you for taking the time to address my concerns but lets be honest, all you did was confirmed my real fears - Nova doesn't give a stuff about their users and would rather tell a user to clear off and make their own launcher or be blunt and dismissive rather than give a reasonable explanation.
That makes such perfect business sence!
Why don't you contact Cliff Wade, Nova's customer support manager?
You will make a great G+ moderator answering users concerns the way you have.
Just confirm to them nova that has lost another once loyal and long term user who's sick of getting fobbed of with lies and dismissive answers to genuine concerns.
