    Just tried out nova launcher for the first time. I use apex and man oh man are you guys missing out. If you have the paid version of nova well that's probably the best option. But if you're using the free version you need to make the switch. Apex free offers half of the features in nova prime (the paid version).

    Things apex has that nova has in prime:
    -hide apps
    -one finger gestures
    -two finger gestures
    -pinch gesture
    -way more animations/affects
    -more customization of scrolling in dock, app drawer, home screen
    -notification count (if rooted)
    -1x1 widget in dock I believe(if rooted again)
    -probably a couple other things I can't remember right now

    Now I must admit nova launcher does have a few more speed options which makes it a lot snappier than apex. But other than speed... the free version of apex has nova's free version beat by a mile.

    And if you're not using either one you're missing out.

    I didn't forget about go launcher! I like them too. It's just too gingerbread like for me Same goes for touch wiz. To dull for me.

    Can you rearrage your app drawer instead of being alphabetical by default like Nova?

    And I can stick my 1x1 data usage widget in my dock. (rootless Nova)

    Yeah it's crazy. I kept thinking to myself rip off. And yes you can make it go appear and disappear, or even expand down with a gesture so you don't have to go all the way to the top of the screen
