    How do you do this?
    Which part? if you are asking about the widget, you can go into the app drawer and select the widgets tab, and look for the "google now" one, and place it on the left most screen. and uncheck infinite scrolling of screensn (in the Nova settings)

    hope this is what you asking about. If not, let me know what part of my screen shot you are asking about.

    What's the difference between Nova and the paid version a.k.a Nova Prime?

    Posted via the Android Central App
    The prime opens up more features than the free version, that has to do with look and feel enhancements of the launcher. One of my favorites is the gestures on the home screens. for example I can swipe down from anywhere on the screen to bring down the notification panel, or pinch to zoom to open up the gallery, or swipe down with two fingers to say open wifi. All these can be customized to do different things.

    hmm, it should be there in the app drawer. Alternatively you can press and hold the home screen>>widgets>>Google search>>Google now (4x4)

    I am loving Nova Prime on my N4. It has been very smooth and I love the additional customization features.

    When you remove the s pen on a non touchwiz launcher, do you get the air command?

    I just checked this with Nova and air command pops up when s-pen is detached.

    I've never used a launcher before and usually just relied on ROOT with my classic Thunderbolt for customizations so pardon my stupidity here but, is it easy to go back to TouchWiz in the event that I dislike Nova?

    I've been using Nova prime since I got my Note 3 and use it again on my 4. I have tried a few other launchers, but always go back to Nova prime. I don't have the widgets for Google now set up, but I've assigned a double tap on the home screen to open Google now.

    I think this why I don't mind (love) TouchWiz because it works with Nova Prime, not that others (hTc, LG, etc.) have any issues.

    Nova is amazing!

    Sure, you can do that two ways. You could keep Nova installed and just make Touchwiz the default when you hit the home button, or you can simply uninstall Nova, and Touchwiz will be back in service. Hope this helps.

    Mainly just widgets like

    Calendar
    S health
    Facebook unread badge

    All the s pen features will work.
    There's an option for a Facebook unread badge and other unread badges. You need to have the Tesla Unread for Nova plugin installed. Then go into Nova Settings > Unread Counts > TeslaUnread Settings and scroll toward the bottom and select Facebook under Labs. Works great on my Note 4.

    I got 1Weather when Weatherbug Elite screwed its paid customers. It has a GREAT widget that has Google Now built in. I haven't quite looked up screenshot yet or I'd post it.

    Without starting a new topic - is Nova launcher the best one out there?
    I've used multiple launchers and I feel it's a matter of preference. Nova is the best for me because it's the simplest with just enough customization. I used to be a GO launcher fan but they got a little Ad happy. Apex and Smart launcher seem to be gaining in popularity.

    Best way to find out what you like is to download them and try them out because attempting to describe the features of them is impossible.

    There are a couple from the Calendar that are missing. In TW, when I select the calendar widget, I get a choice of 4 different widgets, including a nice transparent monthly calendar. Using Nova, when I select calendar, it just drops the standard daily one on the screen and thats it. I can't choose any of the other 3.

    There's another thread about this somewhere. From it I got turned on to "Today" Better than stock calendar. Nice widget. I use Nova too.

    Big thing for me missing from Nova, or any other launcher besides TW, is the feature that lets you pin an action memo to a home screen. I really like that feature as with the Note 4's screen resolution I can actually read those mini post-its.

    Does anyone know of a widget that can do similar, as a 1x1?

    Thank you for posting this picture and sorry to get off topic, but I have a question please, as I have always wondered why my gmail icon doesn't show the 'number' of messages? I have looked in the settings but can't seem to find how to make it show that. Thanks for any help.

    If you DL the TeslaUnread app and use it with Nova it will provide this.

    Thank you for your reply. I use the stock launcher (and still using Note 2....Note 4 soon!) so I guess it cannot be accomplished with stock.

    right. purchase Nova Launcher Prime, then download/install Tesla Unread. Set up all of the items you want badges for.

    I recently switched from Apex to Nova Prime because Nova finally added a "Lock Desktop" feature. So far I haven't had a problem adding any of the Samsung widgets.
    What do you like better about Nova over Apex?
