    Default Preferred Launcher on ICS

    What launcher are people using with ICS? I am on 232, using GoLauncher, but it feels like it lags. I purchased Nova Launcher the other day when it was on sale for $0.25, but haven't tried it. Just curious what others are using. I don't like the stock grid, prefer a 5x4 which is why I switched to Go a while back. Thanks.

    I've been very happy with the stock launcher on ICS.

    It now has a lot of the features in the Go Launcher, and it is very smooth.

    It does not have the 5th row, but I like the larger icons.

    Try Apex Launcher. They have a free and pro version. Try the free version. I am using it on my Tablet with ICS and so far, I like it. Has lots of options to change icon layout and lots of other options.

    I agree - loaded Apex free version a few days ago and finding it very responsive and versatile. I especially like the folders format options.

    I love nova launcher. I was using the free version to try it out and was contemplating purchasing the full version when it went on the 25cent sale and became a no-brainer.

    If it did the auto-rearrange of icons and widgets like jellybean does I'd likely use it o my Nexus 7 also but the stock JB launcher is great.

    I got Apex and Nova both when they were on sale. I use one for a few days then switch to the other one.

    Don't have ICS yet, but will have soon. Is Holo a good launcher, or just an ICS look alike for use with GB?

    As far as I know, holo is just for gingerbread. Nova and Apex are where it's at with ICS and up.

    I loaded up Nova Prime, been working very smoothly. Much better than GO Launcher was.
