Nova Launcher Moto X 2014 DSC07206

If you’ve been keeping up with all things Lollipop you’re probably as excited as I am to get the new update on your Android device. While even Nexus devices still have some time before the update officially rolls out to them (carrier and manufacturer devices even longer than that), you can get a taste of Lollipop right now thanks to Nova Launcher. The update — now version 3.2 — adds Lollipop elements like folder animations, scroll indicator, icon theme, and various other improvements.

According to TeslaCoil’s Kevin Barry, he’s been able to bring these features all the down to Android 4.0+ devices (instead of just Android 4.3+) which I’m sure those of you with legacy devices are sure to appreciate. Keep in mind that while the new folder animations aren’t identical to those found in the new Google Now Launcher, they’re close enough that you’ll get nearly the same effect. Barry also mentions he’s working on getting his version of the app drawer animation from Lollipop, but will take some time given Nova Launcher’s customization options.

You can find the newly updated Nova Launcher 3.2 via the Google Play Store link below.
