    I'm loving Nova launcher. It fills in the few gaps I couldn't stand on touchwiz. But I miss all the icons and themes of Go Launcher.
    I had problems with Go Launcher on my Motorola devices and would prefer not to use it as Nova runs so clean and smooth.
    Where can I find good icons that will work with Nova?

    Why did you stop using go launcher? I'm still using go and I'm really happy with it but then I am a sucker for pretty themes. Maybe I should have another look at nova but it would be so hard to give up the super themes this is what I have now

    I use Apex. For me personally it was smoother than nova.

    I also went with Nova because of the lack of some features within TW, especially with the added limitations imposed by VZW.

    There are many good icon packs out there that work with Nova. It really depends on what style you're looking for. One of the nicest ones that I use is MIUI X4.

    I'm quite happy with TouchWiz. No need for me to change. I don't fiddle with the phone all that much.

    I use ADW.Launcher

    I tried Apex, Nova and a few others but ADW.Launcher is just the best.

    It has a lot of themes, it's stable and has the most functionality.

    When I first got my Note 2 and before I rooted, I used the phone stock for about 7 days. I thought Touchwiz was rather nice. After that initial period, I went with Apex Pro and have been Apex since.

    Used GL on my Razr Maxx and Bionic before that but it slowed the device a lot and ran into glitches. If it doesn't do that on this phone I might try it. I do miss all the cool icons.
    One thing I like about Nova is that it feels like I am still running stock (touchwiz). But I can change the grid, scroll circular through homepages etc. GL felt like it took over my phone. Of course anything was better motoblur.
    Thank you all for your replies.

    I've been using Smart launcher for the last couple of weeks. I like how simple and clean the launcher works. I also like how the launcher automatically organizes your apps in the app drawer. There several themes you can download but I've stuck with the default icons and wallpapers.

    I really like icons that have a three dimensional look to them. I have seen some nice themes that are compatible with Nova but the icons are flat.
    Memescape said they are hoping to have some of theirs available for Nova in a few weeks.

    I've stuck with TW, I just wish I could use the TW weather widget with a transparent background, I am using Beautiful Widgets to get the look, but I want the Samsung weather app to open when I open weather.

    One feature I like with Nova is swipe actions. You could set an icon to open whatever app or action you like.

    Have you tried Business Calendar? Great widgets. I actually prefer it to the Samsung calendar.

    I was using Nova for a long time. I switched to Action Launcher about 2 months ago and haven't looked back. I absolutely love Action Launcher. It's still a work in progress but new features are added every update.

    If you guys haven't tried Everything.me launcher, you should give it a try!

    Totally out of the box launcher, which customizes based on what you're looking for!

    Say "Batman", and it changes the background screen to a photo of Batman, and displays apps that you may want to use... for example, it'll show eBay app. Click on the eBay app, after saying "Batman", and it'll display items for sale on eBay, relating to Batman!

    Say a movie stars name, and the background will change to his/her photo and you'll be presented with apps such as IMdB, which, when you click on it, displays all of the info about that celebrity in IMdB!

    Free app, in beta but totally stable. You can find it in the Play store!

    I am using Next Launcher, bought it a while ago when it was on sale. I love that I am able to get rid of the status bar and the bottom draw launcher so I have a full screen I us pie to launch everything I may have stayed with TW if it would have given be the option to hide the status bar and drawer launcher.
