    As much as I actually like touchwiz I'm tempted into trying different launchers to give me more flexibility and customization. What launchers do you guys use and why? I've never used one before so I'm a little anxious about getting into one so any tips you may have to your respective launcher would also be great!

    Nova Launcher Prime, tons of customization options, gestures, etc. They have a free version to try out as well. I'd recommend just playing around with the different launchers and see which ones you like.

    Nova launcher is very popular, gestures are great. You have to spend a bit of time in the settings trying out the different options and you will see how glorious it is.

    With gestures you're able to perform different actions just by swiping on the screen. For example, I have a gesture to open up App Dialer when I swipe up from the bottom of the screen. Or is I swipe up with 2 fingers it opens up Nova settings. There are tons of gesture options you can setup.

    Oh really? That's a rather cool addition to be fair. I'm going to download it now and tinker away after work, see if I can get my head around it ☺.. Thanks!

    And one of the coolest things with Nova Prima is the swipe up actions. You can have two different actions with just one icon (app, folder or shortcut). For example, if you have two different email accounts you can set an icon to open one of them when tapping and the other one when swiping up.

    Nova prime, however something to be aware of is that the plug in for Nova that puts unread badges (Tesla unread) is not currently fully working.

    For instance it's a known bug that we aren't getting unread badges for Samsung email at least, and I think there might be other apps not working.

    But it's still a great launcher.

    Mine work. You have to go to the option in the Tesla settings where you select the apps you want it to monitor.

    I guess I'm the only one who prefers Aviate. I try most others but keep coming back. It just makes thins so much easier for me, without having a cluttered home page. Their categories panes makes finding the app I'm needing a breeze.

    Although I'm still using the stock TW, I've always used Nova Prime in the past. There will come a time it gets installed on my S6.

    Did, but it's simply not working and Tesla coil acknowledged my email that they know it's an issue.

    Go wants you to buy EVERYTHING... Ads everywhere. Huge fail for me.

    I have no ads what so ever, and I have GO Launcher install on 2 phones and a Tab Pro. Maybe you had an much older version installed, the current version doesn't have that issue and I have been running GL since March.

    Did you buy the PRO Version?

    Nope, just the free version on Play.Google. It was called GO Launcher EX but I think the name has changed again.
