Best Free Fighting Games For Android

Street Fighter Fighter IV Champion Edition takes the title

Capcom’s Street Fighter series has been the iconic fighting game ever since the early nineties, and the mobile offering in the venerable franchise doesn’t disappoint. Street Fighter IV suffers a graphical downgrade in the port from PC and console but the good news is that the sophisticated fighting system stays intact, with all the characters and moves you know from the big screen.

The game uses a virtual on-screen gamepad by default (though you can add your own controller), and Street Fighter veterans will find it fits like Ryu’s worn red gloves, but there’s also an optional button just for special moves to make it easier for those who find touch controls awkward.

Unlike many fighting games on mobile, there’s no login for daily rewards, no grinding for in-game currencies to level up your fighters punches, no gambling-style random unlocks of characters, moves or features.

The free version of the game is akin to an old school demo, where you can play as Ryu against three classic characters. A one in-app purchase of $5 unlocks all the other fighters and various of game modes including arcade, survival and online versus.

All in all, the successful port of Street Fighter’s mechanics and lack of pay-to-win BS elevates this game over prettier but more predatory offerings out there. $5 for a fair fight every time? Well worth it.

Somewhat frustratingly, the game is online-only, even if you’re playing solo, and even after you’ve paid. But so long as you have a Wi-Fi connection, this is the most satisfying fight game on mobile. Pro-tip: fire up the game while you’ve got Wi-Fi, and you should still be able to complete the arcade mode solo even after your signal drops.

Shadow Fight 3: blades over brawn

The Shadow Fight series isn’t a port from more traditional gaming platforms, but instead was developed natively for mobile. Although previous titles in the series featured battles between almost featureless black figures, Shadow Fight 3 brings all the action into the light, and looks good while doing it.

Instead of the traditional roster of similar games, you get one character that you customize through their equipment: armor, melee weapons and missile weapons. The equipment is tied to one of three factions: The Legion (Medieval European themed), the Dynasty (Wuxia Chinese) and the Heralds (anime-influenced techno-samurai).

The ability to mix and match equipment from different factions and select different special moves gives you enough variety that you don’t miss choosing different characters, as every combination demands different tactics.

Shadow Fight 3 plays with a surprising amount of depth, with hard controls through a virtual gamepad and restrained movement that requires proper form and timing to succeed as you get to know your weapon’s reach, speed and power relative to your opponents. Tense counter-attacks and reversals are common, and in a fair fight, it plays out like a 2D version of Soul Calibur on your phone.

But sadly, fair fights in Shadow Fight 3 are rare. Your all-important equipment has stats that must be leveled up by leveraging various in-game currencies, earned by playing through its story mode, side missions, or ‘versus’ duels (actually against CPU opponents). Story missions are doled out piecemeal, and the duels frequently match you up against opponents with higher stats that you.

The result is that the player will frequently find themselves at a disadvantage in fights, pitted against an opponent that deals more damage than them, and takes less. Player skill can go some way to mitigate this—and I’ll admit, there’s great satisfaction to be had in handing the cheating bots ass back to it—but this game will continually beat you into the ground in an attempt to get you to splurge some real money on in-game currency to spend on ‘booster packs’ of random equipment cards.

It’s sad, because Shadow Fight 3’s controls and mechanics can result in a genuinely intelligent, stylish and fun fighting game that I’d happily buy outright, but the free-to-play/pay-to-win monetization scheme injects an unnecessary amount of frustration into the mix.

Nonetheless, you can still get a lot of mileage out of Shadow Fight 3 without paying, and it’s well designed system keeps Shadow Fight 3 ahead of other free-to-play fighting game titles on Android.

Tekken Mobile: a slave to the grind

Tekken Mobile was a highly anticipated title for many months, but when it finally arrived on Android, fans of the long-running fighting game series were confronted with a very different game from what they were used to.

Bandai Namco’s offering for mobile devices is a quintessential mobile fighting game, in that it’s a micro-transaction heavy grind-fest with enough different kinds of in-game currency and stats to make me want to hire an accountant to play this game for me.

The sophisticated controls characteristic of the Tekken series have been shrunken down to a limited repertoire of taps and swipes along a 2D plane. Yes, this is Tekken game with no sidestepping, which should speak enough to series fans about how different it is.

Yet, if the monetization and mechanics are painful to think about, there’s no denying that Tekken Mobile is beautiful to look at. The characters look great, movements are fluid and the graphics overall really take advantage of what modern high-end phones have to offer. It’s one of the titles confirmed to take advantage of the Razer Phone’s 120Hz display, for example.Lacking the depth of gameplay that characterizes the Tekken series on console, Tekken Mobile really trades on the strength of its brand. You want to see your favorite characters rendered gorgeously on your mobile device? This is the one for you. But if you’re looking for more tactics or challenges in your fights, you’d be better off paying $5 for Street Fighter or even just trying Shadow Fight 3 for free.

Marvel Contest of Champions: one for team players

In many ways, MCOC was the model for Tekken Mobile. The mechanics for collecting characters of different levels and upgrading them through grinding out different colors of crystal are almost carbon copies. Likewise, the actual fighting mechanics of tapping and swiping and activating special moves work almost the same way.

Like Tekken, MCOC sells this busywork on the strength of its brand. So it would seem that the choice here is a no-brainer. If you’re into the Marvel Universe and want to see Black Widow and Black Panther duke it out, you’ve got to go with MCOC, grind and just hope that you’re rewarded with the characters you want to play and enough upgrades to keep them competitive. Or pay real money to have a better chance, of course.

Still MCOC has a few more things going for it than just branding. The multiplayer game has a lot of active players, and requires co-operation to complete various challenges with high rewards. As a result of this, players around the world are organized into alliances, with a vibrant social element emerging based around these co-operative quests.

So if you’re more of a team player and like the idea of taking on co-op challenges with your buddies then MCOC deserves some consideration for your brawler of choice. The community is so active that there are even budding third party chat clients developing around the game.

Samurai Shodown II: cuts closest to the arcade experience

This is one for the old-school fans. SNK has been a friendly rival to the better-known Capcom for decades, and now many of its old arcade titles are available for Android on the Play Store, including classics like Fatal Fury Special and King of Fighters 97/98. But for my money (and yes, these will all cost you money, to the tune of $3), the best of the bunch is Samurai Shodown II.

If you’re spoiling for a good fight, don’t let the old-school graphics put you off. Samurari Shodown II may not have the graphical polish of a title like Tekken, but it has retains the deep and balanced gameplay of the original. Balanced in that the CPU is still hard as nails just like back in the day, but the only thing between you and victory is always your own skill.

Although the sprites show their age, the characters are still as charismatic as ever and the colorful ‘Ukiyo-e’ aesthetic remains attractive and distinctive. If you want to get the knives out but are put off by Shadow Fight 3’s frustrating IAP schemes, you could do worse than drop a few bucks on Samurai Showdown II.

How to Charge Your Android Phone Battery Faster

0

Get the right plug and charger

While Android chargers have a universal fitting, that doesn’t mean they’re all the same. Connecting your charging cable to a laptop is a bad idea if you want to charge your phone quickly: a USB 2.0 port chucks out just 2.5 watts of power, while USB 3 delivers 4.5 watts. Your wall charger will deliver much more, so this is the best bet if you want the speediest charging.

Related image

Many modern Android phones support fast charging, which delivers a whopping 15 watts and can therefore charge your phone much more quickly. You’ll find a good list of fast charging phones on the Qualcomm website (you don’t need to have a Qualcomm processor; just Qualcomm’s power system).

Be aware that just because a phone supports fast charging, it doesn’t mean the charger that came with it is a fast charger, or the most effective charger possible for that phone. You may have to buy your own. For example, the LG G6 came with a stock charger that used Quick Charge 2.0, just like the G5, even though both phones support Quick Charge 3.0.You don’t necessarily need to buy your phone maker’s own charger – a third party one can save you a fortune – but be wary of no-name gray market cheapies, which have a tendency to set things on fire.

androidpit samsung fast charger note 5

We also don’t recommend using wireless charging if you’re in a hurry. Wireless charging can’t deliver power as well or as quickly as good old-fashioned cables, so it’s best used when you have more time on your hands. The exception to this rule is wireless quick charging. This will be more effective than USB charging, but less effective than cable charging from a wall socket.

Put it into airplane mode

The less your phone is trying do while it’s charging, the more quickly it will recharge. Airplane mode blocks any wireless radios on your device, reducing your phone’s capabilities and therefore stopping it from doing so much.

It won’t receive calls or messages while it’s in airplane mode, but it’s worth it to have a device that will stay on for the next few hours.

androidpit airplane mode screenshot

Turn it Off

Turning your phone off completely will allow it to recharge even faster than putting it in airplane mode. Again, you might miss out on a few notifications while it is off, but you’ll have to live with that if you want your phone to last until you come home again.

Use a battery-saving mode

Ever since Lollipop, Android devices have a battery saving mode of some description (usually Settings>Battery>Battery Saver), whether it’s the stock option or a manufacturer-specific feature such as Motorola’s Doze. Switch this on to conserve power while your phone recharges.

moto g battery saver

Switch off unnecessary features

Check to see if you have any unnecessary features on, such as Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi or NFC, which could be using up battery power. Close all your apps and stop your phone from doing automatic backups or updating apps from the Google Play Store.

androidpit settings icons sony

Don’t touch it

If you need your phone on and out of airplane mode while it’s charging, because you are expecting an important call, try not to keep using your phone every 30 seconds. Why? Because the screen is the biggest battery drainer of them all.

The more you wake your phone, the faster its battery will drain. So try to avoid the urge to check every notification that comes through, leave it to charge, and it will reach the desired level much faster.

Buy a portable USB charger

This won’t actually charge your phone faster, but it will solve the problem of having a low battery and not enough time to fully charge it. Portable USB chargers come in small, lightweight packages and often can be picked up for less than $20.

Carry one of these in your pocket and you can charge your phone on-the-go – meaning you don’t have to worry about that last minute dash to pump some juice into it. Have a look at what we’re talking about over at Amazon.

PUBG Mobile has finally released worldwide, and you know what that means. It’s time to jump into the fight! Do you have what it takes to win? In this article we’ll lay down our tips and tricks on how to get a good start in PUBG mobile, survive to eliminate your rivals and grab that delicious chicken dinner.

Drop into town alone

In PUBG Mobile, your first strategic moves start before you pick up a gun or even hit the ground. First, you have to choose a good place to drop.

There are two factors at play in this decision:

  1. Buildings contain loot.
  2. Everyone else also wants loot and is trying to kill you.

Quite a dilemma. You’ll want to aim to land next to buildings to grab the loot, but avoid the most popular ones that might be swarming with enemies.

Maybe some hotshots will want to dive straight into the crowd, pick up the first weapon and just start gunning the slowpokes, but that’s not you reading this guide yet, rookie. Instead, get a good start by aiming for a building that other players aren’t going for.

Loot first, ask questions later

There’s going to be battle, and you don’t want to be the loser who brings their firsts to a gunfight. Your first priority upon landing should be to loot. Of course, you followed our first tip and have dropped next to a building away from enemies, right? Great. Now get indoors and loot up.A weapon is always first priority. Next is body armor and healing items to keep you alive through the action.

Once you have a choice of weapons and other items, you can start thinking about which weapons work best for you as you explore the area and take down enemies. But first, just pick up everything. PUBG Mobile has a handy auto-loot to help get this done fast.

Use the auto functions

Playing action games on a touchscreen can be awkward but PUBG Mobile has a few convenient auto functions to make it easier. Don’t make life hard for yourself. Make use of them.

  • Auto sprint: the icon appears when you’re running at full speed. Simply hover over it with your finger and then let go to continue running without needing to hold down.
  • Free look: A handy feature that rival Fortnite lacks, you can drag around the small eye icon just below the map  in order to look around and keep an eye on your surroundings. This works while running so you can look around you without changing your direction.
  • Auto loot: Your avatar will simply pick up essential items, like rare scopes, weapons, armor, and more without you having to do anything. The game is pretty smart about this, though when your inventory is cluttered, you might want to check that it is following your preferences.

Be aggressive-remember you’re on mobile

Those of you used to PUBG on PC or Xbox might be used to a cautious style where you focus more on hiding, self-preservation and careful precision. That softly-softly approach isn’t going to work on mobile, son. Controls are less precise, accuracy is more difficult.

This means that you’re less likely to get sniped by more calculating players, and often, you can get shot at a few times before your enemy lands a hit on you.

When you hear gunfire, instead of immediately panicking and running for cover, try and turn the tables. With the skill levels between players somewhat flatted by touchscreen controls, the advantage skews in favor of sheer aggression. In PUBG Mobile, attack can be the best form of defense.

Take aim

That doesn’t mean you throw skill out of the window. Firing wildly will waste your shots and alert others to your presence. In regular PUBG you might be afraid to stand your ground and aim. Standing still means you get your head popped off.

But on Mobile, most of those shots aren’t being fired at you with any accuracy anyway, so stop and aim and make yours count. Nine times out of ten, it’ll mean you’ll be the one left standing.

Aiming is done with the small crosshair icon at the right of the screen, which you can drag around on the screen to aim. If both aiming and shooting with the right thumb is too awkward, you can go into the settings to enable an extra fire button on the left of the screen. Use whichever is faster for you in the moment. The suckers die just the same.

Use your ears

What was that about alerting others to your presence? Oh yeah. In PUBG, your sense of hearing is key. Without distracting background music, you’ll need to rely on your ears to pick up incoming shots and the sound of movement near you.

A keen ear can make the difference between life and death, so don’t be tempted to play PUBG Mobile on mute on the subway like other mobile games. Instead, invest in some decent headphones to give you an edge.

Set your preferences

In PUBG Mobile, a wise warrior always adjust the settings to make sure you fight on your terms. Sun Tzu said that, probably. The game has several settings in the options menu that often go unnoticed, but a bit of tweaking could score you victory.

AndroidPIT PUBG on Android 5

Is your game running slowly or jankily? Consider setting the graphics settings to low and your FPS settings to high to allow the game to play more smoothly. War is ugly, but winning is beautiful.

You’ll also play faster and more effectively if you tweak some options to suit your style and skill level. In the menu you can adjust sensitivity settings, change location of on-screen icons and disable or adjust the auto-loot settings here. As we mentioned, enabling the left fire button can be a real game-changer.

Look out for cars

One of the most frustrating things in PUBG, Mobile or otherwise, is being caught in a death zone with no fast way to the safe area. You’ll want a fast option, and that often means a car. Once you know where cars are found, keep them in mind for when the walls close in. Some players even prioritize dropping near cars instead of their favorite weapons.

Get some help from your friends

If you’re getting repeatedly dropped in PUBG Mobile’s free-for-all. Then you might want to consider playing some squad games to hone your skills. Especially if you can get friends you already know to join you. Teamwork, especially with more skilled players, is a little less intense and gives you more breathing room to get to grips. Your ‘friends’ may regret training you up if you ever meet face-to-bullet in a free-for-all.

How to Get Android P Features on Any Android Device

Get Android P Features on Your Device

1. Install Android P Launcher

One of the cosmetics changes that are coming with Android P is the changes to the Pixel Launcher. Now the virtual hovering arrow is gone, the page indicator lives inside the dock and the dock has gotten a new translucent overlay. Also, the Google search bar has now gotten a new microphone icon. If you want all these features, all you need to do is download the Pixel Launcher by going to this XDA link and install it on your device. Do remember, that you will need to uninstall any previous Pixel launcher mod if it’s present on your device.

1. Install Android P Launcher

2. Get Android P like Notification Panel and Settings Page

The Android P launcher that we just installed changes the overall appearance of your launcher, however, it does nothing to bring the new Android P’s notification shade or the Settings page. If you want that, you will have to use a theming engine called Substratum. You will also need to download and install the Flux White Substratum theme ($1.49) app.

2. Get Android P like Notification Panel and Settings Menu 1

Now that you have installed both the apps, there are three different methods to install the theme on your device. The first method is for anyone whose device’s Android version is below Android Oreo. For them, it’s a pretty straightforward process. Just launch the Substratum app and it will automatically load up the Flux theme. Tap on theme name and then tap on the Select your Android version option. After selecting your Android version, enable the toggle which is next to it.

2. Get Android P like Notification Panel and Settings Menu 2

Once you are done with that, tap on the floating substratum button and then tap on the Build & Enable Button. It will take a minute or so for the app to do its magic. Once it’s done, you will see that your notification panel with quick settings menu and the Settings app are both looking just like the one on Android P.

2. Get Android P like Notification Panel and Settings Menu 3

As mentioned above, the above-mentioned steps will only work for those Android devices which are not running on Android Oreo. However, if your device is running on Android Oreo, you have two options. You can either use the rooting method or you can utilize Substratum’s Andromeda app to allow Substratum to run on your device without root. We have already written articles on both of these methods and you can check them out by clicking on the attached links.

3. Screenshot Editor like Android P

Android P also brings a new screenshot editor called Markup which comes in really handy if you want to quickly edit or annotate on your screenshots before sharing them. To get that functionality on your Android device, all you need to do is download and install the Markup tool from XDA’s website.

3. Screenshot Editor 1

Once you install the APK file you will be able to use the Markup tool. Just take a screenshot and tap on the share button by expanding the notification bar. From the share page, select the Markup app and you will be able to edit and annotate your screenshot.

3. Screenshot Editor 2

4. Get Volume Menu like Android P

As you might now, Android P brings a new Volume menu just like the Power menu which was introduced with Android Oreo on Pixel 2. The volume menu gives you easy control over media volumes and allows you to put your phone in either ring, vibration, or mute mode. To get the Android P’s Volume menu, just install this APK file from XDA Labs.

4. Get Volume Menu 1

Once you do that, launch the app and give it all the necessary permissions that it is asking for. Also, do remember that the app will not be able to bring Volume Menu when you press the volume button. Instead, it will create a persistent bar on notification panel. From where you can tap on different icons such as ringer, alarm, and media to access the Volume menu for those options.

4. Get Volume Menu 2

5. Get Android P Wallpapers

Just like every new Android version update, Android P also brings a ton of new wallpapers. If you want them all on your device, you can just go ahead and download it from here.

6. Get Android P Ringtones

Android P is also bringing a ton of new ringtones. If you want your phone to emulate Android P, you should not stop at the visual elements but also change the audio elements. So, download all the new ringtones, alarms, notification sounds and other sounds that are coming with the Android P right here.

7. Android P Always On Display

Android P is also bringing a small update to the Always on feature. The Always on mode on Android P will show battery percentage. Which is a very handy feature if you ask me. To get this feature on your device first, download and install the Always On AMOLED – BETA app (free) from Play Store. Now, launch the app and grant all the necessary permissions.

7. Android P Always On Display 1

Now you are on the homepage of the app. Here, you can customize the things that you want to display. To enable battery percentage, first tap on the Customize Watchface option and then tap on Battery Indicator.

7. Android P Always On Display 2

Here, choose either the Flat Style or Default Style option. Now, your smartphone will show your battery percentage just as it does on Android P. The only difference is that on Android P, the battery percentage is displayed at the bottom of the screen. While with this, it will be shown on the middle of the screen.

8. Get Android P Notch Emulator

With the Android P update, Google is bringing a built-in notch emulator to help developers adapt their apps according to the notch. However, you don’t have to wait for Android P to get the notch emulator on your phone. You can just download the XOutOf10 app (free) from the Play Store and do that right now.

8. Get Android P Notch Emulator 1

Download and install the app, then you need to do is launch it and tap on the Start button. Once you do that, your phone will start emulating the iPhone X notch on your Android device.

8. Get Android P Notch Emulator 2

If you want you can also change the size of the notch. First tap on the Stop button to remove the notch and then tap on the Change DPI button. After editing the DIP, tap on the start button to emulate the notch.

WhatsApp is giving users the ability to add a description to group chats. The group description feature is now rolling out for both Android and iOS users.  The Facebook-owned WhatsApp rolled out the group description feature for the beta version of Android last month. While the feature to add group descriptions isn’t a huge update, it could prove beneficial for a certain type of WhatsApp chats, for instance, when creating an event. Now that the feature is available for both Android and iOS users, here’s how the group description option works for WhatsApp.

How to add group description on WhatsApp

Step 1: Make sure you are using the latest version of WhatsApp app on your smartphone. Android users can download the updated version of WhatsApp from the Play Store. iPhone users, on the other hand, will be able to download the latest update to WhatsApp by visiting the App Store.

Great Tips and Tricks to Make The Most of Nova Launcher

0

Nova Launcher is the king of Android launchers. With features galore, it’s the ultimate way to customize your smartphone. You can amaze spectators, confuse the ignorant and save precious seconds, often simultaneously. The sheer number of options can be intimidating, however, so many are often overlooked. Here’s a rundown of the most useful Nova Launcher tips and tricks.

Note: aside from the experimental menu and the scrolling orientation, these features are only available in the paid version of the app.

DOWNLOAD NOVA LAUNCHER FROM Here

1. Hidden folders

Here’s a great way to access all your most commonly used apps quickly and without littering up your home screen. You can make an app folder that is hidden, appearing only as an icon of your choosing. When pressed, the icon will open the first app, but when you swipe up, it will open the folder, showing the full range of related apps.

I use this for my music apps, so when I press the headphones icon, Deezer opens, but when I swipe up, I see Soundcloud, Music Player, Deezer, etc.

AndroidPIT nova launcher tips and tricks double tap to lock
  • To set this up, first drag the related apps into a folder as you would normally.
  • Then long-press on the folder and select Edit. 
  • From here, you can press on the icon to choose a different one, change the name of the folder, and adjust the Swipe to open and Tap action settings.
  • Flick the Swipe to open toggle to the right, and, from the Tap action drop-down menu, select First item in folder.
  • For bonus points, make your folders transparent, too, by opening Nova Settings and going to Folders > Background and sliding Transparency to 100 percent.

2. Swipe actions on apps

Another way to make use of the swipe actions is to open apps that are related to other apps. I’ve got the camera icon set to open the Gallery app when I swipe, for instance, and swiping up on the Google Calendar app lets me add a reminder (download Google Inbox to access this feature). I also use this to open Messenger with a swipe up on the Facebook app icon.

  • To set this up, just long press on an icon, select Edit
  • Press on the Swipe action option to select the action of your choosing.

You’ve really got to make the most of those swipe actions. The final way I use them is by adding a swipe-up gesture to the home screen to open the app drawer, a double-fingered swipe up to open Nova settings and a double-fingered swipe down to open Google Now, along with a few others, but you can choose whatever suits you best.

  • Just go open up Nova Settings
  • Head to Gestures & inputs and peruse the Gestures section and decide which actions you want to set to do what.

While this option could just be included in the section above, it seems worth highlighting, because it’s something I use a lot and is easily overlooked.

  • Go into Nova Settings
  • Press on Gestures & inputs > Double tap and select Screen lock

Now, when you issue a quick double-tap to the home screen, your device will lock. If you’re not so keen on this, another very useful application is to have it launch the phone app.

5. Smooth scrolling

If you put the same widget on multiple launcher screens and employ Nova Launcher’s wipe scroll effect, it produces a really pleasing way of moving between screens, with the widget remaining in place throughout. Take a look at the gif below to see what I mean.

  • For this one, just add the same widget to all of your launcher screens, and then open up Nova settings.
  • Go to Desktop > Scroll effect and select Wipe near the bottom of the list.

The app drawer is Android’s one-stop shop for all your apps, but how about making it a more discrete home-screen-style arrangement?

By default in Android, the app drawer is one page, but with Nova Launcher, you can add extra tabs to it that you can swipe left and right to scroll through. Name your tabs by category, e.g., Internet, Music and Work, and fill them up with related apps. It makes finding specific apps a whole lot easier, especially when your phone is a buzzing app metropolis.

  • Open Nova Settings and head to App & widget drawer. 
  • Here, make sure Tab bar is enabled, then head down the page to Drawer groups
  • On this page, you can add additional tabs by pressing the plus sign in the top-right corner.

Once you’ve got your tabs set up, you can choose whether apps show up only in the tab you’ve put them in or in the main app tab as well by long pressing on the tab at the top, selecting Edit Tab…and then selecting or deselecting Keep apps in the main app tab.

7. Use emoji to label your app drawer tabs

Having app drawer tabs is great, but you can make the set up even cleaner by using keyboard emoji instead of words to label them.

  • Go to Nova Settings > App & widget drawers > Drawer groups
  • Press on the pencil icon beside any tab.
  • In the Edit window, press on the tab name, and, on the keyboard, navigate to the emoji of your choosing (you might have to use a keyboard app other than your default to access emoji, or at least the emoji you want).
  • As before, ensure you have Tab bar enabled on the App & widget drawers page.

One more app drawer tip: switch between vertical and horizontal scrolling between your app lists.

  • To do this, simply long hold anywhere on the display.
  • When the settings menu appears at the bottom right, press on it.
  • Select App & widget drawers > App drawer style then select which view you would like.
  • And that’s it – go back to your app drawer and have a go!

9. Experimental features and debugging

This final tip is for the professional Nova Launcher users out there. I don’t often make use of this, but it might be helpful to have on hand.

  • You can access a secret menu, containing experimental features and debugging options, by holding the Volume Down button while in Nova Settings.
  • Once you’ve held it down for a second or two, a new option called Labs should be available at the bottom of the menu.
  • If you find this menu scary and dangerous upon unlocking, long press the Volume Up button to remove it again.
