    Just switched over to AT&T from Verizon. Never saw a need for a special "launcher".
    Any recommendations?

    Nova Launcher Prime is the best. I tried Action Launcher 3 Pro but it is full of bugs and lags like a snail.
    parthtc09 and shaleem like this.

    I'm currently using the new Evie launcher. It's fast and simple. I think it's the best now

    Aside from getting "badges" on my gmail icon... why are these launchers such a big deal?
    Do they allow you to MOVE the app access icon in the lower right of the home screen?

    Yes and a LOT more. Heck you can remove the dock and access the app drawer via gesture. You can change grids, change the icon of individual apps, the limit is so high. Check this link to see what other people have done with their launchers:

    Nova Prime is the best, you can even place widgets in the dock, I have my volume widget and brightness widget there. Launchers?-capture-_2016-11-05-22-58-19.jpg

    Being new to android and using the s7 edge I've looked at launchers.

    Nova does look impressive.

    But for now TouchWizz and the SB Theme I've downloaded fulfills my needs.

    Z launcher is my personal choice for a launcher. I think it's by far the best launcher for me and I have many friends that I was able to introduce it too and they seem to enjoy it too. Majority of the people I know are now using it because it's smooth and way too good. Almost flawless when it comes to usage... bug free and that's a guarantee ... I also enjoy zen launcher but it's not as good and I don't really ever use it. Z launcher by Nokia is probably the best out there for me. Feel free to give it a try.

    I have really enjoyed Next 3D launcher, but I am surprised to find that I am enjoying TouchWiz at the moment.

    Another vote for Nova (prime or not). Been using it for 4+ years now.
    Get a set of icons to match your preferences and it's like a different phone.

    Well I downloaded and installed Nova (free) launcher and set it all up.

    Pretty cool, but now I don't have ANY badges illustrating how many notifications I have for each app. I guess I've gotten used to this with the stock launcher from Motorola/Verizon.

    I've heard Nova PRO does this. If I switch to a different launcher, will I have to rearrange all my icons again?

    Yes. You'll have to rearrange.

    The Tesla Unread Plugin (which gives you the badges for Nova) only work with the Prime version.

    Launcher drain so much of battery so I will advise you to stay with original launcher of your device but if you Still want another launcher you can use Nova launcher or others

    I was a Go Launcher guy for ages then went to Nova Launcher Prime on my Note 5. Now that I'm on the 7 Edge (via Note 7 sadly) I am trying to give Touch Wiz a chance. So far I'm finding it to be OK.
