    What do you think?

    Unequivocally . I tried it as an add on a month or so back. Simply does not have the features of Nova.

    Honestly I'm not sure what features I use that would be worth the "Prime" purchase. As long as it has backup and some gestures, I'm fine.

    That being said, good devs, so support them .

    It is good enough that I paid for the full version and haven't regretted it.

    I've been using the prime version on my Nexus for more than now and love it. I haven't tried TW so I can't compare but Nova is well worth the cost IMO.

    Is there a way to make the icons bigger? The size was fine on my S2,but look a little too small for the S3, especially since I disable icon text.

    I'm running Apex. For those that use Nova? Do you think I should switch? If I do switch from apex to Nova Is there an easy way to keep my layouts and such?

    No way to transfer, but you can back up and restore Nova layouts in the future from within the app. I think Nova is better. I switched from apex a couple months ago because Nova supported swipe actions from the dock first. A must for me.

    What special Samsung features don't work with third party launchers? Do the gestures for the screenshots work? Basically I'm wondering if there are any downsides to using a third party launcher with this specific phone.

    Everything works for the most part. I used go locker to get the ICS theme lockscreen. Unfortunately in their list of security locks, face (un)lock isnt there. So you cant use that feature. Which I was really enjoying btw
