    Default Anyone using Nova Launcher?

    Hi guys, is anyone using Nova Launcher? I'm interested in trying it out to get the ICS look but I was wondering about two things before I do:

    1) Does it retain the Note's 5 rows of icons on each screen, rather than the usual 4 of other devices? All the screenshots I've seen are from other devices with 4.

    2) Do the S Pen optimisations still work e.g. double-tap to launch S Memo?

    Thanks

    1) Yes you can have 5 rows, you set set it up in the settings.

    2) Yes it works, just tried it

    Just downloaded the Nova launcher and it's working pretty well.

    I know it's only $4 for the Prime version, and i'll probably will just pay it, but I sure wish the number counter for email and SMS was available on the free version. It's the only option on the paid version that's a must have for me.

    Galaxy Note! Phone. Tablet. Planner. Notepad. eReader. The only device I need!

    I was using nova prime and it was fantastic. Nova is simple yet very attractive. One thing i think that is kinda annoying is that 5 x 1, 5 x 2... Doesnt really fit into the home screen. So the original galaxy note widgets doesn't fit on the nova home screen. Other than that, everything else is just amazing.

    Thanks to all for the replies. I've gone ahead and installed Nova and I'm loving it, and I think I'll upgrade to the paid version soon. My Note now (almost) resembles an enormous Nexus, and I can't think of anything better than that!

    The only negative I've found so far is the loss of some of the Touchwiz Widgets, particularly the S Planner one which I found useful, but I knew that this would happen. If anyone can recommend a free calendar app with a good widget that syncs with Google Calendar I'd appreciate it

    I use the Simple Calendar Widget. Its not compareable to the Touchwhiz Widgets but its handy if you have not that much appointment. Most widgets will use the integrated calendar and you can sync that with google calendar.

    Thanks for that, I found a version of the stock ICS Calendar app (I was used to the stock app from my Nexus One) and I'm happily using that for now.
