Nova Launcher Update screenshots

TeslaCoil developer Kevin Barry is back with another update to the world famous Nova Launcher Beta. Announced on the app’s Google+ Community page, Barry lists off some of the new features now available in the Nova Launcher 3.0.2 Beta 1 update, many of which bring a few Android L goodies to us non-Nexus users (as well as better compatibility for those running the Developer Preview). Here’s the short list:

-“L” Folder Preview (Nova Settings – Folder – Folder Preview – Line)
-“L” App Drawer Icon (Long-press app drawer – Edit – Tap Icon – All white icon under “Built-in”)
-“L” App Animation (Nova Settings – Look and Feel – App Animation – Slide Up)
-Minor tuning for running on Android L Dev Preview
-Optimizations and bug fixes

This should help those of you without the gall to run the new Android L Developer Preview, which really isn’t meant to be used on a primary Android device (although we found it to be more than stable). You can either join the Nova Launcher Beta community to get in on the latest betas as they arrive in Google Play, or download direct from the developer here.
