    How do I go about assigning commands like that to individual apps? I see where I can set certain gestures to perform certain actions.... Like open a particular app. But how do I set where swiping on whatsapp messages particular contact our phone does certain thing. Thanks
    As Glock said, long press the actual icon on the homescreen. Then press edit. From there you can change the icon image, change the app/folder name, and then there is a pulldown that lets you assign the "swipe up" action.

    One note though, the ability to send a What's App txt w/ just a swipe also relies on a Tasker script, as well as a 3rd party plugin (WhatsTasker.)

    I've decided to go with Nova for the ability to choose icon packs and to set the number of icons in the dock. I do use Touchwiz themes to find a color scheme for the notification shade that roughly matches what I'm doing with my home screens.

    I just did the switch to Nova on this phone. I'm a little disappointed that the icons don't change with the themes. They only change if you're using TW. Last night I installed different icon packs to try and match the icons on the themes as closely as possible.

    With that said, I do enjoy having my gestures set up. I've been using TW and was happy with it. I just wanted to change up a little, and now that I have Nova back, idk if I'll go back to TW. It's not bad, just not as play friendly as I've grown accustomed to. Customizable screen grids, gestures, losing no functions (except the icon issue)...back on the Nova train for now.

    How did you get those "quick memo widgets"? Is that a 3rd party addon or is it part of SNote? I can't find it on my stock Note 5 (VZW).

    I Like Nova Prime been using it a long time, But ever since i got the Note 5 i stood with TouchWiz since there's no lag and it's smooth, and i did notice that Nova Prime eats your battery on the Note 5 and uses more than 245mb ram so i will have to stick with TouchWiz On the Note 5!

    First you must be on Touch Wiz, then make an Action Memo, then select more (top right corner) & then finally "Pin to Home screen".

    Stock. Love using those quick memo widgets.
    Definitely a lot smoother TW this time around! But I Agree. This feature is probably the only thing I miss about it when I switch it up.
    Otherwise I like Lightning Launcher as well as (if not better than Nova).

    So I finally decided to try TouchWiz. Rather boring, no? What I mean is, one can't buy\download icon packs, as you can with Nova Prime. In addition, there doesn't seem to be any 'settings' per sé for TouchWiz.

    And I miss the swipe down for notifications (from anywhere), i.e. gestures...

    They have a "theme" store....and you can select the grid now.

    Not as boring as before but can't match Nova Prime.

    If you're talking about the themes menu within the Note 5 settings, I saw that. But, there is no options for gestures or plain ole icon replacement. That's compared to Nova Prime...

    I have always used just Touch Wiz. I don't or haven't seen a reason not to use it.

    Trying Nova on the note 5. Very familiar with it on other devices. I don't like that action memo widget isn't available as I abuse that widget and S-cal. But everything else is great. Love the gestures.

    Only available on touchwiz. Open the quick memo, press the hamburger menu button and save to home screen option should the there.

    I'm back to Nova again and I would have been back much sooner if I was aware that you could drag widgets to the dock.

    I did it yesterday by a mistake and was at first like WTH?!

    Anyway besides all the other features I've used before (and some new ones) it's definitely much easier to use as now. But docking a widget to the dock is new to me!

    FYI - I use Touchwiz. You can use Awesome Icons app to change your icons in Touchwiz. It worked with all the icon packs I've downloaded.

    As much as I keep on trying to use Touchwiz as my main launcher, I just end up coming back to Nova Prime. I don't feel like I should have to pay for themes and I can't even make my own themes anyways. Nova is just simple clean and fast.
