Google released Nexus 5 with exclusive features like “Google Experience” launcher having always on Google search “OK Google”, Google Now in left Home screen(swipe right to launch NOW), transparent Status/Navigation bar etc.,
Play store now has many Kitkat Launcher apps which brings most of the Google Experience launcher’s features to devices running Android 4.4. I tried a few on my Nexus 4 and this Kitkat Launcher app by KK app team appears to be near perfect.
- No visible lag while navigating between desktops and app drawer
- Decent icon size(customizable)
- Transparent Status/Navigation bar
- Swipe right to launch Google NOW
- Hide Search bar in Desktop
- Common customizations found in other launchers
