    I'm using it on my Nexus 7 (2012) now. The only thing I really like is the fact that I can control how many home screens I have.

    It does on my S4 GPE. I uninstalled it because it seems to have made all of my widgets inoperable.
    ...does not have voice-only activation from the home screen. =(

    How do you access your widgets when using the launcher?

    Try it...

    No harm in doing so. If you don't like it, delete it.

    I use it on my GPE ONE and I'm getting great battery performance. I think this is the best launcher it there.

    I hate to pile on, but I haven't seen any impact on my battery from the launcher, either. That's on a N4, though.

    I got it on my note 2 and nexus 7 2012 and have not noted any battery drain at all. Just works really well with swipe left and ok Google works great every time.

    I got it running on my Nexus 10 and sideloaded the previous version on my Note 3. I haven't seen any difference in battery life on either one.

    I use the Google Now Launcher on my G Pad GPE and my Stock Moto X. I absolutely love it. The launcher has a very modern feel and works very smoothly. I don't have any problems with widgets not functioning like other people have stated. The icons are noticeably larger on the Google Now Launcher, and at first I did not like that at all. However, now I actually like it.

    I keep trying to use this launcher but I always go back to Apex. I think I have an addiction to Apex or something.

    So far I have been using Nova Prime. I wanna try this but then again I don't I'm sure at some point I will give it a shot!

    Would I gain anything from switching? Whats the "cool" factor of this launcher?

    I have both installed. With Nova, I was always changing backgrounds/icons and got too obsessed with it. I then installed GNL and after getting it set up, I forget about it and leave it alone. When I get bored again, I will just change Nova to be the default launcher and go through the whole obsession again.

    I have them moments! But I do this with Textra and Hangouts. However Hangouts just makes more sense for me for the time being. Thanks for the input!

    Same here. I have Nova Prime sitting there, unused, since I got my Nexus 5. At first, I thought that GNL was sparse and the lack of options would get on my nerves. But as I got more time on it, the simplicity grew on me. I didn't need to have my launcher do a ton of things, nor did those things end up making my usage any easier.

    Oh, JD.... I don't use hotword detection. Personally, voice control is a gimmick I typically just turn it off since I never use it. But the quick access to Google Now. Yes, I know you can launch it by swiping up (I do get to GN that way), but that will never match the speed and convenience of having it there on the left on the homescreen. It just works so much more fluid when it is integrated into the launcher. If Nova incorporated the same type of integration, then I'd consider switching.
