Few months ago, I signed up to test the beta of one of the new Android Launcher acquired by Yahoo called Aviate. Then after 2 weeks of waiting I finally got my beta key, but I still did not use Aviate because I didn’t have time to tweak my daily phone during that time.

It was only 3 days ago when I have had the chance to use and explore it, and I was IMPRESSED! Honestly this is the most appealing and efficient launcher I've used to date. Everything was so smooth and looks great! Don’t get me wrong here that is not the main feature of Aviate, now let me go into the details:

Aviate is a very intelligent launcher, it reminds me of Google Now with a better UI (Interface) and User Friendliness. I said it was very intelligent because, you can manually or automatically change its mode according to the time of the day or your needs, to whatever you are doing, when you are at work, in travel and listening. I was actually surprised that it reminded me to check my emails every morning and do my fitness routine. Then when I plugged my favorite headphones it automatically changed into music mode. I do not know yet its full capacity but this one is really very promising because it is only at beta mode at this time.

As far as its efficiency is concerned, I did not experience any LAG yet considering one of my test device only have 512MB of RAM. Compared to the Smart Launcher which is supposedly lighter, I am experiencing LAG there which I did not feel with Aviate.

Another thing is Aviate is customization according to your needs, you can add the icon pack you want, recommend you to download the apps you like according to category, be at power saver mode, check the places nearby and many more.

Aviate even knows my morning routine and nearby places!


In General, what I love Aviate is it adjust to your needs and lifestyle. You can set it up with the way you work and play. If you will ask me, this Launcher is one of the best and is highly recommendable. Cheers to the Aviate team for making this one! Now I’m excited to see what else this launcher can do in the very near future.

Note 1: You can download this via Google Play


Note 2: It will take you at least 2 weeks before you get your activation key, then once activated you can share the launcher to 5 of your friends by inviting them.
