    Yes. Nova Launcher Prime.

    Not really into Rooting, etc. I just want a clean Home Screen and Gestures.

    I just downloaded Go Launcher. Is that a bad one compared to NOVA? I have no clue about anything other than Jailbreaking iphones for the past 5 years. I'm a newbie.

    Samsung TouchWiz

    Samsung TouchWiz more productive vs Nova Prime 1.1 vs Spb Shell 3D 1.6.3 vs Next Launcher 3D 1.2.9? Say it ain't so Bunky?!?

    I have been running tests the past several weeks on Samsung native and these three third party launchers. The test are being run only on Samsung Note and Note2 devises for power business users with a corporate MS Exchange Server for email, calendar, contacts and todo functions.

    Note: We recognize Nova Prime, Spb Shell 3D and Next Launcher 3D as being far more advanced for high-end graphics, themes, colors both wallpaper and icons, etc. and the limitation of TouchWiz only having seven Home Screen Panels available even though you can have up to 25 icons and/or direct web links on a Home Screen Panel.

    Criteria: This analysis is done giving the highest score metrics for:
    - simple easy to recognize graphics with labels
    - least cluttered home screen panels
    - easy to use interface
    - intuitive user interface
    - fewest number of clicks to customize Home Screen panels.
    - fewest number of swipes & clicks to get to corp. email, calendar, contacts and todo functions.

    TouchWiz has very strong widget support in general and especially for the MS Exchange email, calendar, contacts and todo functions. It simply beats the third party launchers hands down. For the following reasons:

    - has email widget to allow for full screen email both MS Exchange and/or POP & other emails
    - has widget for half or full screen todo list
    - has widget for full screen calender with appointments and meetings showing
    - even has agenda widget showing your next 3-4 appointments/meetings

    Creating folders, filing with application, web links etc. and then giving a title to a folder is intuitive and simple to accomplish with TouchWiz. Even with the limitation of only seven Home Screen Panels TouchWiz beats the competition for this daily business use. If you want fancy tricked out graphics with more function TouchWiz is not for you, but given you have the ability to dynamically toggle between several installed launchers you could be comfortable working with different User Interfaces over time.
