    Default What Launcher replacement would you recomend for a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0

    I just purchased a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and I am not too happy with the louncher or the UI. I am so used to vanilla UI after having mostly Nexus.
    so what Launcher replacement would you recomend for a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 or which one are you using?

    I agree, Nova Launcher. After you try it for a while and decide you like it, I like the Prime version for the gestures to launch apps.
    Don't rush it, just try it for a while and try it's features.

    I use it on my GT-P3113, 4.0.4, Imm76D.P3113UEBLH2

    I like the drag and drop to create home screen folders
    custom grid sizes
    hide-able/scrollable dock
    re-sizable widgets
    and Swipe gestures to launch apps. (prime)



    Good Luck.

    I agree. Apex is far better than Nova.

    Nova or Apex for me it really doesn't make a difference of the two. I don't spend a lot of time customizing my tablets. As long as I have the apps I use the most, that's really what matters the most to me. I did change the wallpaper though last week.

    I've tried Go Launcher EX, ADW.Launcher, Apex Launcher, and LauncherPro. I like LauncherPro the best so far.

    I've tried them all and always come back to Go Launcher Ex or Go Launcher HD. I like the HD version best except for no scrolling dock.

    I like nova paid edition. The folders are very functional, easy to clean up a lot of apps.
    It nice to have the ability to easily switch between launchers too.

    When I got to know android on my ace phone, I soon installed Go LauncherEX.. and it's now the same launcher and theme on my tablet (Tab 2) and my work phone (Note 2). Pay a close attention to Nova launcher. It looks like windows 8...

    If you want something fast and simple try nova launcher, been using it or months i find the gestures useful and overall its easy to personalize
