    Default Google Now Launcher

    Just switched to this launcher, but when i change the homescreen wallpaper, the image is always off-center to the left. Does anyone know about this? Thanks for any help.

    Default Re: Google Now Launcher

    It happens on all handsets with GEL/GNL due to the "home" screen being on the far left and additional screens bring to the right... This was a huge annoyance for me, one of several reasons why I stick with Nova.

    O.K., i've got it working. Instead of changing the home screen with the phone's wallpaper settings, i did it with the launcher's settings. The wallpaper went in a little to the left, and then automatically clicked over to the right, which centered it. I'm using the Google Now launcher instead of KitKat's google launcher, because i want a feel for the pure android experience. Fingers crossed...The next phone is Nexus6.

    Glad you got it working the way you want... Hope the N6 works for you, I have the N4 and am about ready for a new device, I like everything I hear about the 6 except the screen size, if its 5.9" I'm sorry, I'm going Moto X+1... But that discussion is for another thread, glad you for it taken care of.

    What are you doing about knock off? Last I tried GNL, it didn't support it.

    I tap the status bar twice, and the phone closes. I tap the closed phone twice, and the lock screen comes on.
