    Not really. This is how I prefer it. I leave them there to remind me to test out. If they make the cut they get put into folders. Otherwise I'm dragging them out of the app drawer which is more work.
    Not really what? You're saying that I'm incorrect about what works for me? Ha ha...... Okay

    Got my Note 7 Saturday, 8/20. Trying to use TW as long as I am able and so far so good. One problem I am having is using the built in Samsung Internet app trying to edit/customize the title of an Internet Site shortcut placed on the Home Screen? Can the title be changed in TW?

    I hope this is not a deal breaker.

    I read it as simply saying that it's not really more work. That it is actually quite simple to do it the way he likes to do it. Not that you're wrong, since we all do things differently. That's the great thing about Android.

    My major complaint is not putting the app drawer in the middle, and inability to move it. Not sure why TouchWiz won't let you move it.

    I also like the personalized swipes you can set in Nova

    I have enjoyed it ever since I tried a 6P. I like the Google Now to the left from the main screen and having the Google widget always at the top .

    I think I hate it because I hate pure android. I used to hate being at Sprint and that 1 in 97867888 customer would come in with a broken Nexus. I have PTSD 😂

    This is going to seem like blasphemy... daring to attack nova launcher, but there are several reasons why I prefer the touchwiz launcher to it. 1) I like that if I download several apps, until I remember their names, I know exactly where to find them: at the end of the app drawer. When I'm ready to alphabetize them, I can click the sort option. ...
    Can you tell me how to sort in touchwiz?

    I told myself I'll stick with Touchwiz because it got more customization features.
    Wow! That's amazing! I never would have guessed that TW has more customizations than Nova Launcher!

    No, I'm saying how it's not more work for me. It's less. Settle down.

    So do any of the TW guru's know how to have the built in Samsung Internet app trying to edit/customize the title of an Web Site shortcut placed on the Home Screen? Can the title be changed in TW?

    Open the bookmarks, long press on the one you want to edit, then tap "more" and change the title.

    Now I'm doing that from my Note 5, it should be the same for you unless they have drastically changed something.

    I think this comment perfectly sums up TouchWiz. Samsung took SO LONG to improve it, that now people won't even give it a legit shot. I don't blame them at all either. Samsung really screwed the pooch in taking so long to make it a better interface. That being said, I enjoy TouchWiz now and I think Samsung deserves loads of credit for what they've finally accomplished. I really don't see the need for Nova anymore. After 6 days with this, I've uninstalled Nova and will stick with TW until further notice.
    Of course, there is always the myth that if you use Nova, you are not using TW.

    Granted, the face of TW and a lot of the interaction with TW is the launcher. TW is also all the options in settings, TW is your notification shade and everything you can to with it, TW is your S-pen, TW is the edge application, TW is AOD.

    Folks you can complain about TW all you want, but if you are on Sammy, you are using and appreciate TW way more than you think . . .

    That said, I am enjoying the TW launcher more this iteration than I did on the N4. I was not able to make it a week then, and I don't think I will change launcher soon on the N7.

    I love Nova, and it was my go-to launcher on every phone I've owned in recent years.

    But I love TW on the note series even more. This version sporting the new Grace ux is killer imo.

    LOL! I can't stand my phone without Nova Launcher, Prime and Tesla Unread. They are the first things I load onto a new phone. Upped my enjoyment of my Samsung phones by an order of magnitude. That, and Hiya, to stop all the irritating telemarketer/scam calls, of which I average 2 a day for the last 9-10 months.

    I'm continuing to use Nova on my Nexus 5X but on my GS7 Edge, I'm now using TouchWiz. I do miss the swipe down for notification gesture but I adjusted by using Pie Control and Power Toggles.

    They must have changed it. There is no "More" button. I can change the title in Bookmarks but there is no "Copy short cut to Home page".

    Long press on a bookmark until it selects it. Is there a 3 dot menu in the top right? Post a screenshot after you long press.

    Right, that's what I have too. But I don't see any menu with "Add Shortcut on Home Screen" on the Note 7.

    Totally missed adding a bookmark to the Homescreen. Go to the web page you want a bookmark for. The "More" or three dot more menu, should have an option for "add shortcut to homescreen". And I would think the only editing you might can do with the title is in the bookmarks, but let me check.

    Changing the title in Bookmarks doesn't affect the name on the desktop bookmark.

    Right, but I don't see a way to edit the title once it is added to Home Screen?

    If I could change icon size and hide icons in the app drawer, I'd use the 'Wiz.
