Anything is better than touchwiz but I've tried them all and have decided on Apex launcher. It's very smooth, polished and customizable enough for my needs. I even paid for the pro version for a few extra bucks to have a few extras but nothing really significant. Give it a shot because it's free and if you don't like it u can uninstall it.

I am now running the Nova Launcher app on my 2012 Nexus 7 Tablet to see whether it will behave better than the stock launcher. I mentioned above that stock launcher has been stopping repeatedly since all of the Android system upgrades.

newbie question please
Will nova and apex still send notifications for missed calls, mail, text, ect to the top notification area and also the icons on my dock tray? I don't want to lose those if I go to a 3rd party launcher. Using att lg g2

Nova Prime here. The tried them all, for the most part... Nova kept coming out on top. I purchased the prime version to get the extra goodies and haven't looked back.
It's been rock solid without any glitches or fc's... it's quick and very customizable... I'm running paranoid android 3.99 (4.3.1) and it plays well with the ui additions in PA.
The GEL launcher in KitKat is nice, other than the drain caused by the 'always listening' bits... you really need a Moto X (does the n5 have the low power bits?) for that to not be annoying...
Still, nova is tops[URL="http://forums.androidcentral.com/faq.php?faq=generalacrules#faq_acrules"]Community Guidelines[/URL] and also [URL="http://forums.mobilenations.com/rules-policies/500-community-rules-guidelines.html"]here[/URL], [URL="http://forums.mobilenations.com/rules-policies/766-app-developer-forum-rules-guidelines.html"]Developer Rules[/URL], and [URL="http://forums.mobilenations.com/rules-policies/410-marketplace-rules-guidelines.html#post2963"]Marketplace[/URL]

Looks clean. Feels clean. For the love of Google.

For dock tray, Nova needs to download the extra plugin "TeslaUnread" in addition to buying Nova Launcher Prime. Apex probably have something similar.

Sorry, but can you please tell me what "options to enable a missed count widget on the apps" means? What I'm after is this: Sometimes when I turn my 2012 Nexus 7 Tablet on, the launcher stops and then reboots. (This is a separate issue that I'm working on, so please don't get side tracked.) The point is that before the Tablet reboots, it'll post 7 or 8 Notifications which I never get to see because I guess it figures I've already dealt with them and it doesn’t need to post them again after it reboots.
Can I get those back some how? Maybe by "enabling a missed count widget on the apps"? Or is that something totally different?

i too paid for Apex merely to support the dev. i was perfectly ok with the free version, which i liked even better than nova prime. can't remember why though. hahah.
i also think go launcher is sweet, but the developers have ruined it by all the bloatware that it became a turn off to me. in fact i'm waiting for them to screw up next browser, which i find is the best browser. go team will eventually mess with it, i know it.
