    I always see recommendations for new launchers, and I try them all.

    Never fails though I always go back to adw.ex. Older but oh so smooth and I just love all the options. Suits me very well

    Holy crap, as a brand new android user, this completely changes the phone! I downloaded Nova. I LOVE how I can have 7 buttons on the fixed row at the bottom.

    Can someone explain exactly what this app does? Does it disable Touchwiz? Is it saving system usage, or adding to it? The phone seems faster with Nova for some reason.

    Question though: how do I get back to the normal phone? lol

    It's been so long but I think you go to settings, apps, find your current launcher and clear default. There's probably an easier way but I been on Go Launcher for the past nine months.

    Nova is fast!
    It doesnt disable Touchwiz, it just replaces it, you can always swtich back and forth between the two.
    There are different launchers with different features...u can have as many launchers as u want

    TouchWIZ sucks! That is why you are noticing the difference. Nova gets out the best of the phone.

    Apex is a good choice too. Have been using it for quite some time. I find that it and nova are very similar.

    I am curious as to why everyone is so fascinated about Nova Launcher. I prefer Apex Launcher myself. It has more features, especially in the free version and is almost identical in a lot of ways.

    But no one ever really talks about Apex, only Nova. Weird.

    I'd swear the developers have to know each other being as it's hard to tell the two launchers apart.

    I prefer the free version of Apex to the paid version of Nova I bought last year.

    My favorite so far is Go Launcher. Also I don't think I can the app drawer wallpaper on Nova or Apex unless there is something I overlooked.

    I ran GO for the past 12-months and loved it. On a whim I gave Nova a try on my new HTC One and although it's really similar to GO, Nova runs much smoother and faster. Very happy with Nova.

    I agree, I mostly use adw.ex but my second would be apex. I use home switcher and have a total different set up on apex that I jump to occasionally. Just keeps it fresh

    Nova is the one I use. Used ADW.ex for a while. I just like Nova's gestures and unread badge notifications with Tesla.

    Prepare to be blown away. Head over to www.mycolorscreen.com and see all the great screens you can setup on your phone.

    Nova Launcher replaces your Touchwiz launcher but you can go back easily. Just go to the Nova settings by double tapping your screen. Scroll down to the bottom and select default home. Choose Touchwiz etc and you are back to where you were before.

    Apex is where it's at. Great launcher. Go launcher is fun sometimes...but I've felt lately they keep bloating the thing with all their add-ons lol. It's like the alternate touchwiz now lol.

    They are very similar. The one thing I like about Nova over Apex is the ability to add multiple apps at one time.

    I use Nova launcher prime but check out Lightning Launcher. It is amazing. More difficult to learn but you can place icons anywhere you like without a grid and you can do vertical scrolling. I'm still experimenting with it.
