    Default Stock vs 3rd Party Launcher

    How many of you are still using the Maxx's stock launcher or have already replaced it with a 3rd party launcher like Nova. I like the stock launcher, but eventually moved on to Nova since I get more organization and options using Nova, ie. folders in the app drawer and multiple docks.

    I moved to nova for 5x4 layout and infinite scroll. This battery and nova together is near perfection

    Moved to custom launchers. I change launchers more than underwear. Trying a two-screen Action Launcher approach right now.

    The stock launcher is good enough for me.

    Haven't tried nova or go launcher on this phone. I really like it the way it is. I may add an app like multiple wallpaper so I can have one fixed background and the icons move like a tablet.. I don't like having a long picture that just slides when I change screens

    Well I like the Razr M launcher due to the settings menu being to the left. It is so easy to get to it I installed the launcher and home screen config but still can't get the gps to turn on or off without fc the home screen. Also the battery circle does not update it gets stuck on charging even when unplugged or doesn't show charging when plugged in. I think it is a problem because it needs to be a system app which we can't do without root. I hope we get root.

    Is the stock launcher for cyanogenmod available in the app store? I like its grid setup better other than that I like all functions of the stock maxx launcher

    Nova. I tried to go without it, but I'm too used to the amazing functionality.

    Using ssLauncher. The freedom of doing anything you want with this launcher is amazing.

    I'm going to keep stock on for now but I'm sure I'll go back to Nova. Changing my launcher keeps the phone fresh for me. On my Note 2, it was a must because well... touchwiz.

    I hated Touchwiz as well on my Note 2. I just felt like that it just bogged down the system over time. I'm happy with what Motorola has done with their new phones; my Maxx runs smooth and lag free, especially the case with Chrome.

    Is there a way to import the stock launcher set up into Nova? This has always been an option on past phones but for some reason its not showing up here.

    Doesn't look like it. Nova has options to import from a bunch of launchers, but it doesn't look like MotLauncher is one of them. When I go to the Nova import options on my Maxx right now it lists Apex and ADW (both currently installed) but no Moto launcher. On my S3 it lists Trebuchet as an option to import since I put CM on it.

    I'm using Nova Prime with Nox icon pack. I used the free Nova for a long time until I discovered that with Prime you can make the icons up to 30% bigger, which I think looks great:

    Anyone else having the problem where you look at one of your active notifications and then back out and it still brings you to Motorola's launcher? I've done this with text messages and emails, both times takes me to Motorola's launcher even though Nova is the default.

    I've been using Action Launcher for the past week and haven't seen that behavior.

    Nova gives you the option to stop the background from scrolling.
