(Update: now on Android 4.x) Get the new Android N folder icons with Nova Launcher Beta
Original post: April 15: Just a day after the Android N Developer Preview 2 arrived, Nova Launcher Beta has already added the new style of folder icon. The new folder replaces the previous “stack” of app icons with a circular “window” through which you can see up to four clipped app icons contained therein. If you’re all about having the latest and greatest but don’t have a Nexus device, you can at least fake it till you make it with Nova Launcher Beta.
The new folder style isn’t the default option in Nova, so you’ll have to select it manually in Nova’s settings. Of course, there’s no guaranteeing the new folder icon will stick around in the final Android N update – what we’re expecting to become Android 7.0 later this year – but it’s a nice new look to try out.
What do you think of the new Android N folder icon? What change do you want to see next in Android N?
