    You can use custom icons packs. Mine is a glass icon pack.

    only add-on I'm aware of is the unread counter

    I really like the gesture functions...i have swipe up/down to hide the status bar, double finger swipe up/down to hide dock bar, pinch in to launch gesture search, pinch out to preview screens, and the rotate gestures are set to the default functions still. Combine that with the fact that the long press menu key still launches my google search & I can freaking fly around this device much faster now even though I have like 6 gigs of apps installed.

    The unread counter was the first thing I downloaded with Nova hahaa.

    Edit: these are two examples, mine had personal info on the screen but otherwise looks the same with different colors.

    Are launchers more battery intensive than using stock TW?? All those customizations must come at a cost I assume.

    I tried it but it seems to limit the number of apps per folder. Am I missing something?

    I think it's the GLEX Cowon D3 theme... I played with Go Launcher and I wasn't too impressed. I have to play more with it when I have time. But for those that liked the above theme, it's the Cowon D3 theme. One person has a Cowon D3 clock widget...it's in the app store as well.

    As many have suggested already, a custom icon pack is definitely a good way to started customizing.

    I don't know about "themes"...that's all easily accomplished wiht Nova, various widgets and a custom icon pack. Not sure what icon pack that is, but the bottom right is the Circle Battery Widget and the weather on the left image is the Minimalistic Text Widget.

    What icons are those? Look good. Also for all on this thread, I have been toying with trying a new launcher. I just don't know which one to try. ADW? I seem to keep reading how all that have tried NOVA loves it. Any of you try the others? Likes/dislikes versus NOVA.
