A smarter Android home screen

Editors' note, June 23, 2014: Aviate has left beta and is now available for anyone to download.

Aviate is a free Android launcher that transforms your home screen to show the apps it thinks are useful, depending on where you are and the time of day. It does that by grouping your apps into themed collections, such as Home, Morning, Nearby, and Night Time, and then will pull those collections onto your home screen when the time or location is right.

The app takes over your phone's home screen, changing the design of the Android skin and adding new features. Aviate's goal is turn your phone into a personal assistant that knows what you want before you even look for it.
