    Yeah Nova gives customization where TW is lacking, and for me it's just the little things like the clock/weather app on TW unnecessarily takes up half the home screen. Things like that can be fixed with Nova.

    The Clock and Calendar apps function live and are not static. The clock and weather widget is much smaller and the widgets overall are lot cleaner.

    More power to you. To each their own. Personally, I install Apex as soon as my phone is out of the box. I actually hate all stock launchers.

    I might have spoke too soon solo launcher had an update and I decided to give it a try and it's once again peaking my interest. I'll see how it goes for a couple days

    I am with you. If you want to use them, that's great too. To me, they had their day when TouchWiz was so heavy that it got in the way of the user experience. I also like what I have seen so far and hope the trend continues.

    I'm so accustomed to the gestures nova has I just can't adjust to not having them. Otherwise I would probably stick with TW.

    Does Nova, or any launcher bring back the Notification icons in the upper left when the screen is locked?

    I like Touchwiz as well. I tried Nova and Google but went back to Touchwiz. Just seems like it is just sport to dismiss Touchwiz in reviews and the like. Millions of Samsung users use it so they can't all be wrong.

    Same. Tried Nova and Google Now, but surprisingly TW is the winner for me.

    So I decided I was going to DL Nova simply because I missed being able to swipe down anywhere in the home screen to get toy notifications, but it doesn't seem to be working. Went in to make sure I had it turned on, and I do, but no dice.

    Anyone else experiencing this issue?

    i use the beta (i payed for original version also) and when i go into settings to enable that feature, it tells me due to new stuff with lollipop, that the app has to be granted permission in the accessibility settings. It prompts me to do it and takes me there, but maybe your using a version that doesnt.

    Go into settings and see if you can find it.

    I really wanted to fall in love w/ the "new" TW interface/launcher, but I just couldn't. I can't put my finger on it but something just still doesn't feel quite right with it. I think it's the little things like:

    1. the app drawer icon forces itself to the right hand side of the dock
    2. you are restricted to a 5x5 icon display on the desktop screens
    3. some of the widgets/app icons are absurdly small (ie: download "direct dial" and add a direct-dial icon ... it's TINY!!!)
    4. you still can't choose to remove the app icon label under your desktop page icons
    5. you can't adjust the page scrolling animation, speed, etc...

    I know there are some more small things, but it IS the little things to ME that make Nova the way to go. The ONLY thing I seem to have lost (at least for now) with Nova Prime + Tesla Unread is the "unread badge" on my Samsung email app ... but I can live w/ that since I have it monitoring the notification area as well, which will place an unread count for every notification of a new email that comes in, and stays there until I dismiss the notifications.

    Not really a true "unread emails" count, but rather an "unread notifications" count.

    If TW would incorporate the ability to mix/match horizontal/vertical grid sizes, and take care of the other things I mentioned above ... I might very well be able to deal w/ TW just fine. Until then, I'll keep using Nova Prime.

    Yeah, I'm on the official release. I'll stock with TW until I get the notification that there's an update in the play store. Thanks!
