    I had used Nova on previous device, using TouchWiz on Note 5 currently. I am okay with it.

    Were you using Telsa Unread, too? That does help...

    Always used Nova Prime in the past but wouldn't touch it now...Heres why:

    1. Nova customer service for a USA based app sucks....They never respond.

    2. Many badge counts no longer work at all in Nova Prime running their badge count app...OR it says I have 3,829 unread messages when I have zero.

    If facebook is in a folder, the unread count for the folder will show double.

    For example, I have facebook and words with friends in the same folder. If I have a wwf notification, it'll show as 1 on the folder. Add a facebook notification, and the folder now shows 4...double the total.

    The unread badges are very buggy... and though it may not affect you, these are known issues experienced (and reported) by many.
    I don't use Facebook so perhaps that's the reason. Otherwise, zero issues.

    ^^ that's an awesome feature of Nova. I keep my apps in folders and use the gesture/swipe to open the most key app inside that folder. Example, I have several items in my Navigation folder but I link the gesture to Waze as my in car Navi is what gets me around but Waze is there to help me see and hear if the cops are waiting for me down the road.

    I also love the general gestures available in Nova. For the sake of screen and appearance I hide the key apps in my drawer at the bottom but rather access them through gestures. See my desktop image below.


    • Double Tap opens texts
    • Swipe up with one finger is my phone
    • Swipe up opens weather
    • Pinch outwards opens my calender
    • Swipe down opens email


    I have it so customized I can't recall what's stock and what's not anymore.

    I would say that Tesla Unread badges were mostly hit but sometimes miss. That said, I have been having issues with GMail and Google Messenger showing badge counts on TouchWhiz

    The first hangouts message I received, it showed 999 unread.

    Until yesterday, I had switched to Textra... then my wife sent me a text that had the number 60 in it.... icon showed 60 unread.

    Exactly what mine did. If you had a number in a message or email the badge count would show that number....So like I mentioned earlier Nova Prime SUCKS....for them to STILL not address an issue like that after more than a year tells me one thing...They are finished with developing their product and could care less about the users now. That is why I am NEVER using Nova again. Touchwiz and the TW unread badges work absolutely prefect, couldn't be happier.

    I rely on Gestures everyday, and my settings for Nova Prime goes as follows:

    Pinch In - Messages
    Swipe Up - App Search
    Swipe Down- Waze
    Double Tap - Gnotes

    I tried this with Action Launcher 3, BUT they just don't have enough gestures like Nova Prime. Don't get me wrong I liked Action Launcher 2, BUT the Developer removed the sidebar menu feature where you just swipe from the left, I loved that because it worked for just about every app. Since then, it really hasn't been the same, so I went to Nova. I do like changing up launchers every once in a while, but I end up Always returning back to Nova Prime.
    IF AL 3, has similar gestures like Nova Prime, I might consider switching to AL 3. However, NP, doesn't lag very much, and hardly drains the battery, unlike others.

    I am using Nova Prime to be able to add more apps to the dock and change icons. I also got rid of the icon labels. TW is OK I just want the customization I get from using Nova Prime.

    I also like that with Nova you can enable screen rotation on the Homescreen for landscape mode.

    I switch between TouchWiz, Nova and Google Now Launcher.

    Never even thought I would like TouchWiz but credit goes to Samsung for cleaning it up.

    Want to be in control of the experience? Nothing beats Nova. From gestures to quick search to customizing desktop grids, Nova is the ultimate launcher.

    When I want to experience and drink the stock Android cool-aid, I switch to Material TouchWiz Theme and then use Google Now Launcher.

    There are a bunch of apps that let you quickly switch between launchers. The one I used to use was Home Chooser Flow, but there are a bunch of them.

    I say "used to" because after flipping through as many as I could try, for the past couple of years I've been all Nova Prime, all the time. I agree that TouchWiz is better than it used to be, and using NP isn't any particular judgement on TW...but there are a million NP customizations that I really can't live without anymore.

    As for the wrong counts on the badges, I get why that's a dealbreaker for folks who rely on those...but that's not something I do.



    Sorry, couldn't resist. LOL

    We could probably do a whole 'nother thread on "Show your Nova customizations," but it really is a lot more than visual to me. It's even more than gestures. It's about creating your own little world. You can do it super fast, and it's super simple. You don't have to make a ton of tweaks if you don't want to, any more than you HAVE to tweak TW...but part of the fun of Android in general is that you CAN tweak.

    And by using something like Home Chooser Flow, it really is a swipe and click to change back and forth between TW and NP as often as you want. No need to make it either/or.
