    Screenshot as promised. I made folders for AC, most of Google services I use, a tools folder for the Clock, calculator, calendar, etc, music players. Any questions on my setup I will answer to the best of my ability.

    I think you need the paid version of Nova for gestures, which I do not have. However, folders can be done in the free version, and folders can be placed in the dock too.

    Nice, I like it. I'm playing around with gestures.....it's kinda cool, but only if I remember to associate the right gesture with the app/command etc...lol...which will take some time...who knows, maybe I can clean it up a bit, but I do like the way it looks with all my fave apps right there.....Nova Prime seems pretty comprehensive and there's a lot to learn here.

    Yea nova prime rocks, it really offers a lot of customization. I'm not really into gestures myself, to much to remember in my brain already lol. But I just love the visual look it brings compared to stock touchwiz; which I used to long, just got bored with the look.

    This may sound stupid..... But how to you create a folder? In setting I see folder, and ways to customize etc..... But maybe the option isn't there because my home screen is full? Or do you just drag an icon over another?

    Quickly drag one icon over another. Otherwise the ui will think you want to change places.

    To add you can even edit that folder to any icon or picture you want so you don't have a stack of icons.

    Why do you think it's a good idea to keep your HS clean? Not saying it isn't, but why do you think that?

    I can't stand having a screen full of icons....my #1 complaint with iPhone. But go with whatever works for you. I keep mine very minimal but still functional.

    The widget has 5 hotspots that link to my alarm clock, calendar, Google Keep, Music app and Voice search. I also use SwipePad which gives me hotspots on the edge of the screen to access my most used apps, there's a simple weather widget at the bottom and a double tap on the screen opens the app drawer.
