    eta: I see that I need to use Go launcher to change the app icons. So is Nova launcher like a pizza crust, and Go launcher and similar are the toppings?

    Nope. In nova just tap and hold the app shortcut an it will give you an option to edit it, tap that then tap the icon and it will let you choose a new one.

    I bought it for 25 cents at the end of September during Google Play's 25-cent promotional sale. Long before I even bought my Nexus. Maybe I'll install it this weekend.

    I got it at the same time. I kept going back to Go Launcher but decided to give Nova a try again on my Nexus 4 and love it. It runs so fast. Here's my latest screen. Nova Launcher on Nexus 4 - Any users?-uploadfromtaptalk1357194744885.jpg

    I'm hearing a lot about Nova lately.

    I've used ADW EX for over a year now and it sounds almost identical. It's super stable, smooth, fast and completely customizable. Awesome transitions, gestures (I currently have it set to open the camera on pinch... Pretty cool), dock customizing, folders, icons etc. Flawless jellybean/ics integration...Totally feels oem. I love it.

    What are the differences and plusses of Nova over ADW?

    I just installed it yesterday and I love it! Lost sleep can't stop playing with it. I installed it on my N7 but it didn't work so well. Lagg and snag.

    I am using it on my Nexus 4 and I find it's just as quick and smooth as the stock launcher but adds a few features that I really like. I think I am gonna go ahead and get the paid version as I have been using the free one and I like it so much.

    edit: I also use it on my Nexus 7 because I wanted my phone and tablet to have a consistent UI, and I have found it runs fine on that bad boy too

    They are called Metro Station. Probably the most versatile icons available.

    How did it fubar your icons? I have Apex and Nova both installed and swap back and forth all the time. They are both pretty good, but I think Nova is better. It's faster and gives you a few more features that make customizing easier.

    Would not load theme line after I had been using it for a couple of days although the other themes were fine; I tried everything including deleting data and the apps and reinstalling but could never get it to work again. Went to Apex and it worked.

    i've used ADW (free version) for a little bit and dont like the way the app drawer behaves (scrolling way too fast) in comparison to nova. also, no dock pages, no dock swipes, no dock divider, and you are stuck with that glossy finish at the bottom of the screen if you want a dock. another thing is when you long press an icon on the homescreen, you can't uninstall the app directly. you also cant change the icon directly, you have to go through a more extensive process (create a custom shortcut or something iirc). Apex and Nova are almost identical but Nova edges it out because of its ability to backup/restore widgets and your whole desktop layout very easily (a themer's dream launcher lol). ADW is still decent though.

    Every single thing you mentioned is addressed in the paid version of ADW. Scrollable docks, themed docks, paginators, icons etc.

    I know you can change icons in ADW but it's a pain when compared to nova or apex. Instead of long pressing the icon to change the icon, you have to create a custom shortcut. If you are insinuating that it's different in the paid version of ADW, then that would be illogical on ADWs part. Same goes for long pressing an icon on the home screen to un install the app directly. ADW paid has dock swipes? Not referring to dock pages, I'm talking about doing an upward swiping motion on an app in the dock to achieve another function. Also, you can only add one app at a time in the home screen whereas in nova you can add multiple apps on the home screen at the same time (saves a lot of time, trust me). And for me, I don't like the scrolling speed in ADWs app drawer but I guess that's rather subjective. It's good to see that ADW can backup and restore widgets though...
