Nova Launcher Gets A Ton Of Small Changes In Upcoming 3.0 Release, Beta APK Available Now

For my money, Nova Launcher is the best of the AOSP-style launchers available in Android. Developer TeslaCoil Software has consistently updated the launcher for the better part of three years, and one of the biggest updates is coming soon. Nova 3.0 won't add any earth-shattering changes, but there are a bunch of little changes that will thrill the customization-obsessed in small ways.

The latest Humble Bundle has landed, and this time it's offering seven-ish games out of the gate.

[New Game] Conquest Of Elysium 3 Makes The Jump From Steam To Android, Keeps Its $10 Price Tag

Want to travel back to the golden age of fantasy strategy games?
