Aviate started out last year as one of those alternative Android launchers that aimed to predict what apps you use at different times of the day and offer those to you along with weather and location based info. Last year Aviate was available as an invite only app as they wanted to test out the app, I used it quite a lot at the time and found it to be quite useful once you had figured it out and it had figured you out.
Well the good news is that Yahoo the apps owners have published the app and it’s free for all to use, as long as you’re on Android 4.3 or higher.
Yahoo Aviate Launcher is not your typical launcher. Unlike GO, Nova, Apex and other similar launchers, Aviate automatically simplifies and intelligently organises your phone, only showing you the apps and information that you need, as you need them, throughout your day.
Aviate is a little disconcerting at first, because nothing seems to be where it should. But this is all part of the learning curve. You really need to try it out for a few days.
★ Simple, beautiful navigation – Transforms your phone into four, easy-to-navigate screens to make every interaction faster and more efficient.
★ Adapts to you – Shows you different apps based on your current context and time of day.
★ Stay organised – Automatically categorises your apps into Collections, based on function.
★ App recommendations – Recommends apps based on what you have installed and the latest ratings on Google Play.
★ Stay in touch – Contact your Favourite People with one swipe up instead of digging through your contacts.
★ Customisation for simplicity – Edit the apps in your Collections, choose between two Themes, create Shortcuts, install Icon Packs, add Widgets and change your Home Image to make Aviate you own.
To give it a try just head over to the link below, it’s free to try and you can get rid if you don’t like it. Just try and last out a few days before you do.
