One of the most popular Android launchers, Nova, has just made it out of beta. The new version comes with a few new features and bug fixes that should make it even more appealing to Android users.

Nova Launcher was published in Google Play Store for quite some time and it has already reached version 3.1. However, the application was still in beta even with all those updates that brought in more and more features and tweaks.

Beginning with version 3.1 though, Nova Launcher is out of beta, so those who still find bugs and issues with the launcher should quickly report them so they can be fixed as soon as possible.

Along with the out of beta status, developers have also confirmed that the application now features new drawer transition animations (Circle, Slide Up, Zoom, Fade). Keep in mind though that the Circle transition animation effect is not compatible with all devices.

Furthermore, Nova Launcher now comes with app drawer search, which allows users to quickly find apps without having to scroll down/up. Some bug fixes and optimizations have been included in the latest update as well.

You can now download Nova Launcher for Android 3.1 for free via Google Play Store. The application should be fully compatible with all devices powered by Android 4.0 and up.
