    For those of us who've never used a non-stock launcher, how easy is it to go back to TW if we decide not to use a different launcher? In other words, can we screw up TW by tinkering with another launcher, or does it just go back to the way it was setup before experimenting?

    No problem! If you decide to go back to TW just go to settings then go to application defaults from there you can press clear on the launcher u want to leave. Then hit your home button for the option to choose TW or whatever other launcher u have

    So changing icons and such like I've seen some on here have done with Nova doesn't do anything to TW when you go back? The icons just go back to what they had been on TW?

    Right! TW icons can't be changed. That's why 3rd party launchers are so popular. The ability to change the look of how your phone looks is cool and can be addicting lol.

    Well, yes, you do, you lose the feature for pinning an Action Note to the homescreen. (You also lose the stock clock/weather widget, but that's no great tragedy.) But I've found that trade off well worth it for all you get with Nova.
    You do lose the option to pin the note on the homescreen but the stock clock is available without issues, at least on the Nova Prime version I have. I can definitely setup the stock widget clock of the Note 4. It is available under "Weather" widget as you scroll through the widgets list. There are 2 widget available, the default clear one and the other full color background version (similar to S5)

    I just started using Nova and love it except for the lack of pinning notes to the screen. Has anyone found a work around?

    I've also heard that the stock calendar doesn't work with NON-TW launchers.

    It is true that Touchwiz icons cannot be changed but you can create icons/widgets to replace the Touchwiz icons using 1X1 widget of Desktop Visualizer. It is not as simple as replacing the icons on Nova, but it is definitely an option that is available if you like the Touchwiz interface but want different icons. Also from my understanding, the "icon Changer" APP in the play store will allow you to replace touchwiz icons without root. I have not used it myself but apparently it should work - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...iconchanger.ad

    here is a workaround:
    I minimize the note, that way it ends up as a bubble on my home screen, that reminds me that I have a pending note, and the great bonus is that it shows up on all screens.

    I purchased this application long time ago but unfortunately the stock launcher is most faster and accurate.
    Even with all nova animations disabled and with Fast as lighting option enabled.

    Trying Nova out now. The dang thing is FAST. And so many ways to customize everything. I'm getting a little lost in the weeds, I'm afraid. Will have to spend a little more time with it to tweak it some more.

    Is there a calendar widget with a month view, by chance ?
