My verdict

The above features clearly explain the way Aviate works on your smartphone. It even provides some widgets for your homescreen. As mentioned earlier, this app is in Beta phase currently and may contain some bugs. I downloaded it and found it very user-friendly. However, if you want to customize your Android homescreen to significant levels, then, this is not the app for you. I loved this app for it's simplicity and dynamic behaviour as per my preferences during particular time periods in a day. It surely is one of the most intuitive launcher apps that I have used.

It is definitely worth a try as it is available on Google Play store on an invite-only basis at this link: Aviate download link
