    Default Nova Prime worth it?

    Been using nova launcher last couple of days and like it very much. Been debating whether or not its worth getting the extra features or not. Or if there is another launcher with more features.

    If you like the free version, go for the prime. Check out at Google Play Store ; Holo Launcher HD its free, Apex Launcher got free and prime versions. If you want something extra fancy check Next Launcher.

    When Next Launcher was release, let see I got an HTC ONE X+ at that time and the cost of the app was $19.99. I got a lot of prime launchers, Nova, Apex, TSF, ADW, Action. The funny thing is that the one I used , my favorite is free, Holo Launcher HD.

    I think even the gestures are worth it so it really is. Not forgetting customizable icons and screen grid. I like to swipe up to get to the app drawer.

    Nova Prime is worth it for the swipe up secondary function. So for instance, if I tap my Dolphin shortcut it opens Dolphin, but if I swipe up on the icon, it launches Chrome. Swipe up works on folders and even shortcuts within folders. This is why I never need to leave my default home screen for anything other than some widgets.

    Not to mention being able to hide apps (ie Bloatware) in your app drawer that you wouldn't normally be able to hide, and don't want to root. Very nice feature and worth the $ IMHO.

    Can you briefly summarize the benefits of Holo Launcher HD relative to the others, particularly Nova? Like the OP, I am struggling with whether to buy the Nova Prime and certainly don't want to if I ended up liking another launcher more, especially since TouchWiz really aint that bad.

    TIA

    for me it's worth it just for the gesture features. I use most of the swipes to quickly open apps and love the double tap to turn off (Screen off app).

    I bought next launcher over a year ago, and haven't looked back since. The only problem I have with it, is that it's not that easy to figure out how to change the settings. And the makers are Chinese, and sometimes it's hard to understand them. (They have a facebook page and are constantly updating and responding to issues which is a good thing)

    First of all very low in MB consumption, if your S5 is 16GB internal memory this is a good thing. Second in the app drawer the text of the icons can be color customized, not with Nova or Apex. Third if your phone is running a Snapdragon ,800 or 801 as the S5, processor this thing is a fast thing with no lags. Nova Prime is a great launcher, I think is just a cuestion of preference. Apex, ADW, Action prime versions are excellent launchers. Next Launcher is a groovy fancy sexy thing that consumes big amount of MB.

    Have Nova and Next prime versions of both. I love the customization of Next but the MB consumption is a little outta the limit I like to keep it at. I love Nova fast simple what else do you need. But to each his or her own.

    I went with Nova Prime; used Holo for a long time but if I recall it was getting to be a pretty large program and I also noticed a lag as time went on.
    I agree with everyone else regarding the great gestures, etc. I double tap the screen for settings, swipe down for Nova settings, up for Pandora......so much more.
    Swiping up on the dock icons is also great. Because of this feature I only use two screens because I have 2 docks with a total 10 icons (programs) which in turn with the swipe up gives me 20 programs. All around nice launcher. Also, the support team at Nova is very responsive.
