The glory of KitKat in a small package

Various features, simple interface, neat design, completely free
The possibilities of customizing your Android device are endless, and speaking of launchers, there is no UI left whose concept is not covered by a launcher. From touchwiz to iOS, you will also find the Android KitkKat interface available through the KK Launcher (KitKat Launcher):
Install the launcher, start using it and you will first be invited to the homescreen with a brief guide to the basics.
The interface feels exactly like KitKat with no glitches and lags whatsoever. Clicking on the app drawer icon in the dock leads you to a simple app drawer with nothing special except featuring the apps and a menu button on the top left for functions such as sorting, hiding apps and others.
One little bug on the negative side is that you get a 1/4th black background when you scroll on the extreme left on the homescreen and after swiping further to left opens Google Now. Other than that, the support for icon packs, transparent status bar, and many others make it a worthy feature. For more icon packs and unread counts, and other features, you can get the KK Launcher Prime too. Apart from these, a whole amount of customization ranging from launcher folder to launcher dock is possible, hence maximizing the tweaking possibilities for the user.
Hence, KK Launcher (KitKat Launcher) is a great way to experience the interface on a KitKat Nexus device, with added features that make it better in comparison to the Google Now launcher.
