Nova Launcher – Change App Icon & Name

Nova Launcher is one of the most popular third-party home screens in the Android ecosystem. If you’ve never tried it, the enthusiasm for it probably seems rather odd. What can possibly be so good about increasing the number of rows or columns on your home screen or installing icon packs, lots of default launchers support similar features anyway, right?
