So the new Nova has been released for Beta users and it's finally updated it's GUI. Still old legacy things there however like the way folders for app drawer still have to be gone through settings etc...

Its a good start at cleaning Nova up and making it less Gingerbread. But there is still a lot of room for improvement.

Be aware if you use Samsung widgets - this breaks them again.

Nice to see this. Good to know there's a good back up if I don't like touch wiz on the s6. ;)

Here's the opportunity to add a dark settings menu option... Come on Nova...

Yes, should be as simple as uninstall nova, reinstall from Google play, don't update.

While it's in beta.

You may have to opt out of the beta first or it will automatically show you the latest version in Google play store which in this instance is the beta.



There was an update about an hour ago to fix bugs.

Yep, you're absolutely correct. Play shows me material design.

Still easy enough to do while in beta.
