    Just wanted to know if anyone is using a launcher with their G3? If so, which one and does it make your experience any better? Feel free to elaborate.

    Nova Launcher (Paid) here. Been using it ever since my HTC Evo "4G" four years ago.

    I love the customization aspect of it. There's no bloated crap on it ala GO Launcher, I can change any icon I want, folders, drawers, swiping away the dock/notification bar, Ok Google from anywhere on the phone via voice or double tap from the homescreen, other gestures as well.

    Well worth the $4.99 I spent on it, and then some.

    I wish the LG Health screen was available when using 3rd party launchers.

    I like the simplicity of the app; anyone know how to enable it when using 3rd party launchers?

    Yes, always! Okay, I do try to use the stock UI but after 5-10 minutes I switch.


    Nova Prime, IMO it's the best. I even started a thread that without it (launchers) I probably would be so devoted to android. I'm a Mac user.

    You got a link for the launcher thread sir? Or am I going to have to get up off my lazy bum and search myself?

    I played around with Nova Prime but I noticed that I lost the widgets for the stock LG applications (mail and calendar in particular)

    Yes. Download icon changer and then you can download any icon packs and use them. I believe you may be able to mix them as will.

    Good to know. I love the launcher but there is a slight lag in multiple areas with my gs4. I'm going to Verizon tomorrow and test launcher 8 on their demo version.

    It still has a slight hiccup hate and there on the g3 but in the m8 it was flawless. I can definitely tell they optimized it better for the g3 compared to when I first put it on.

    Does anyone use Action Launcher?

    I'm currently rocking it on my HTC One M7 and plan to use it when I pick-up the LG G3.

    I've used Nova launcher since it was released but haven't put it on yet. Will the stock pop ups for messaging and calls still appear using Nova?
