    I have found one nice Kitkat 4.4 launcher from XDA developers, named as Google Launcher HD.
    Supported devices : Samsung - Galaxy Y, Galaxy Y Duos, Galaxy Ace, S Advance, Star. HTC - Explorer, Sense.

    Screenshots :

    SC20131225-080837. SC20131225-080850. SC20131225-100717. SC20131225-100732. SC20131225-100744. SC20131225-100926.

    Pros :
    - Very smooth.
    - Consumes less memory
    - Flat icons

    Cons :
    - Fonts doesn't look good
    - Flat icons seems distorted

    If the developers, somehow fixes the fonts & distorted icons, it would be best kitkat launcher. Because, it's first ever kitkat launcher i have tried for low end devices which is very much smooth.

    Similar type of launcher is Holo launcher, which is laggy but fonts & icons are rendered properly, check below image :
    SC20131216-195347.

    In terms of smoothness, Google launcher HD is far better than Holo launcher. But when it comes to fonts & icons rendering Holo launcher slaughters Google Launcher HD. Maybe some big screen device might get properly rendered icons & fonts, but in Galaxy Y it is distorted.
