    Welcome to Android Central! Nova Launcher is tried and true. Some on the AC editorial staff also really like Action Launcher.

    My recent experience confirms this. Such a shame that Go is not as stable as Nova.

    I've mainly been using Action Launcher 3, sometimes I switch to Google Now Launcher as well.

    I've been considering Nova for a while now. Should I go free or Prime?

    Free has a lot of features. I'd try free to begin with. If you want/need the extra functionality of the paid version you can always get it.

    Never tried the free version but I can tell you that Prime was well worth the minimal cost.

    I own Nova and Apex, paid versions of each. I have been an Apex fan forever, but I was getting Apex error messages since the last VOLTE update, so I decided to switch to Nova rather than perform a PITA factory reset (which may or may not have corrected my problem). I am very happy with Nova, and more importantly, with how well it imported my Apex settings.

    Correctly imported: Folder contents, and positions. Icon locations, and custom icon definitions.

    Not imported: Custom folder icons, so I had to reconfigure those. Number of pages, and page custom page column/row settings. Both easily adjusted in Nova settings. Widgets. No widgets were imported, but there were reserved place settings exactly where my widgets used to be, and all I had to do was tap those locations, and re-ad and reconfigure the widgets.

    Not perfect, but not bad. It was a lot less of a time investment than setting up my phone originally for sure, and it looks exactly how it did when I was using the Apex Launcher.

    I've had zero launcher errors since then, and performance is at least as good as Apex. Definitely worth the money for Prime.

    For my 1st stupid question of the day................... what's the launcher that comes standard with the Turbo 4.4.4 referred as? Is it just referred to as the OEM/standard launcher of the Turbo?

    I have the paid version of Apex as well and so I put it on my Note 3...all it did was make me miss Nova Prime. Perhaps it's just what we're used to.

    My two as well. I use Muzei to change my wallpaper daily and Action Launcher's setting to change the launcher's colors to match the wallpaper is pretty cool.

    I used to use Nova Prime and I also think it's fine. Aviate just didn't work for me, but it is a cool idea.

    I agree with prior suggestions to try it free first, and then grab the Prime upgrade if you like the free version and think the added features are worth it to you.

    I have Prime myself. For one, I like to support developers who make the stuff I particularly like. I can't recall all the added features in upgrading to Prime, but one is unread notifications on the icons of your e-mail, text, and pretty much any app you choose to have display them (i.e. FB, Twitter, etc.).

    Cannot overly state the importance of this for good applications.

    To elaborate a bit...

    I expect to pay for apps sometimes. I have no problem doing that. Sometimes immediatly and sometimes it upgrades a basic or trial version.

    There are some apps I like *so* much, I upgrade from a free version even if the bump in features isn't that big a deal to me, because I love the overall app so much.

    Nova is in that group for me (although the added features are also nice in this case).
