    One of the things I love about Nova is that I can save different iconpack layouts and restore them whenever I want:

    It makes switching super quick, even though I customize icons and their positioning across layouts.

    Nice! Didn't know I could do that in Nova. That makes it way easier to switch things around and restore what ya had if you don't like the changes.

    Hey guys! Thinking of getting one of these bad boys....Don't hate me I'm from CB, lol.

    Is there some sort of tutorial on how to do all this? Like how do you change icon packs, etc. I know I need a launcher of some kind? Widgets? I'm lost.
    Can't wait to customize again.....

    Wow, glad to see that you're finally leaving BB. Many of the people here are also ex-CBers! You will LOVE the N4 (and you'll love Android)! It will take you a week or more to forget how BB works and start seeing why Android is so good.
    The best and easiest launcher is Nova Prime. It offers a lot of options and is pretty easy to figure out. There are not any tutorials that I am aware of, but you'll see a lot of posts in this thread with what icon packs are used. And it is all pretty easy once you get the hang of it. And Google Play has a two hour refund policy, so you can try an icon pack and then get a refund if you do not like it.
    And you might also give Swiftkey a try as an alternative keyboard. And in a few weeks after you get used to the N4, you should also check out Zooper Widget as it is the most customizable widget available in Android.
    Looking forward to seeing all of your posts with your N4!

    Thanks for the info, I'll let you know when I get it! So I do need a launcher to change icon packs? Can't wait to use all my Beweather sets too, LOL I made so many! They are mostly in the app already!
    I'm not going to be totally leaving BB, just want to give Android a try and see if it's for me. I love the look and feel of the Note 4, and the bigger screen for sure. I'll probably have both devices for awhile.

    The BeWeather app for Android works really well. I used to use the BeWeather Widget until I found Zooper. (Unfortunately you have to make weather iconsets for Zooper in a different format than BeWeather.)

    That is awesome! Did you make your home screen using Zipp zooper? If so how??
    Sorry for the late response.
    I used the following:
    Themer launcher - Android Natural v2 theme
    Zooper Widget Pro
    Widget Locker - Holock Theme

    Yes, you have to use a launcher to change icon packs. Nova, just like andriod when I switched feels complicated but its really not once you figure it out.

    I just wanna start off by saying yes I did come from an ios device to android. I am enjoying my note 4 very much however, I find it so difficult to find a simple yet pleasing theme to use. Why would I want a clock widget covering half of my home screen when the time is right at the top right corner? Why would I want to unlock my phone and then have to press the app drawer in order to get to my apps? This is why I decided to just put all of the apps that I actually use on my home screens. After failing to find a decent free icon pack I decided to make my own. Why not just go iOS? I am using nova launcher, a custom icon pack, the parallax app and I just absolutely love it! I get all the great features that come with my note 4 and android while having the beautiful look of iOS 8!! The best of both worlds.

    You'll need nova launcher prime, if you want I can tell you my settings. For the icons, I took screenshots of the apps on my iPad and cropped them out using Photoshop. I'm sorry but I am not going to distribute them. However I'm sure that you might be able to find the icons somewhere online.

    Can you tell me the settings ? I'll use other icons.
