    I hate the way the iphone looks with each page being cluttered up with apps.

    I really enjoyed the Samsuck phones and the ability to have a blank home screen to enjoy your wallpaper.

    I hate how Stock android doesn't let you insert a blank page now. I also hate how I can't remove the google bar from the top of the page.

    I tried a few launchers, but the stock launcher has the icons floating free, Go Launcher has each icon (bottom bar) sitting on a plate.

    Does the 4.4 launcher let you edit an icon (hold down and select an icon)? If you can, maybe try adding an icon to a page, and then editing it with a blank.png?

    Sure it does. If you have no icons or widgets on the primary home screen whatsoever, you see just the wallpaper. Okay, I know that's what you're looking for, but I just felt like being a smarty-pants.

    Nope. In 4.4, if you remove all the icons, the page disappears

    Really? So what are you left with if you have no icons whatsoever, even in the first home screen? I'm not talking about additional pages, but the last one left after all the other home screens disappear.

    My gripe? Fanboys that come on ANDROID CENTRAL and run there mouth about android products (as I blend an apple, cause crapplesauce is good for two things, young kids and old people). Every newer ssung phone I have toyed with will let you remove app shortcuts and widgets from any individual page. Or, you can stick with crapple and have 18 million shortcuts in 700 folders on 8 pages (mathematician I am not).

    This thread is in unacceptable condition; UNACCEPTABLE....

    LOL!! I have no idea what he is trying to say. Is he saying I am an Androuid fanboy, or is he saying I am an iZombie? Then his weird line about crapple sauce? He then speaks about samsung phones (I think), and then finishes it talking about crapple and a lot of shortcuts and pages.

    I have no idea what his point is, or what he is trying to say.

    Download uccw from the play store and make a transparent widget. Works perfectly. All I did was add a clock and changed the background and clock alpha to 0%, which makes it transparent. Save it and add a uccw widget to a new screen and select the widget you made. I just named mine transparent.

    Edit: in fact, you don't even have to add anything to the widget. Just hit edit objects and select background and change its alpha.

    Wait so it has basically Spotlight circa iOS 6 and deletes pages with no icons like... iOS?

    Does it force the default home page to be the second page as well?

    These are serious questions.

    I wonder how OEM will customize that launcher...

    Edit: I just looked on YouTube. Are you sure there is no setting to remove the persistent search bar. It's at the top of the screen so basically useless as most devices are too big to reach that for a ton of people anyways, and the device has voice activated search.

    The homepage is forced as the very first page to the left. Kind of annoying. I like having my home page the center page. Also looks best for wallpapers.

    Same I set it to the center and sort of have a method for how I organize things. I don't tend to use folders. They aren't well implemented with the way you can pop a keyboard up if you mistap the title on most launchers (should be a long press to edit title).

    Guys this is plain Jane vanilla android. You aren't gonna get any of the features that the other guys add. If you really want more, root and unlock your bootloader. It'll pretty much allow you to do anything that you are saying. And with a nexus, it's not hard.
