    I might have to actually give Samsung launcher a shot. I've been using nova since early note days and have liked it. Worked fine on the fold 2 also. On the fold 3 is is very slow when opening the phone up to inside screen, and I mean slow. I don't need instant, but it's to the point I have to wait for the icons to load up and it's annoying.

    I've emailed the developer, did what they suggested, basically uninstall, reinstall and set up from scratch, not restore. It did not work.

    Has anyone had this happen with Nova, have you found a solution. I also have Nova set up to never put to sleep in battery settings.

    It's very laggy for me, never had this issue on any other phone. I'm hoping there's a solution.

    I have a feeling it's not set up to work with the fold opening.

    Go with the Samsung UI. Its about to update REAL soon, too, Plus Nova SUCKS and the uneducated DEVS actually let an email go out that said, quite rudely, that they dont CARE about foldables and its not worth their effort to update for the fold or anything else. Really seems like theyre lacking in the ABILITY to actually DO IT. I dont think they're capable. Just a dummy living off his past. NOVA SUCKS and is PAST
    their moment in time. hmph. AND im a full paying customer.
    The tech has passed them and they are are INCAPABLE of helping foldables.

    Actually, there's only one dev, Kevin. This is the official explanation about new features for foldable devices. I find it very reasonable.

    The only way I was able to run Nova to my satisfaction on my fold was when I was running to launchers Nova on the inside and another on the outside using Tasker. Otherwise, like I'm doing with the ZF3 I went back to One UI stock launcher..

    Yep, been using it for months now on my Fold 3... no issues, no lag, no problems whatsoever.

    And even with the improvements to OneUI, you can't do this with it... you simply can't have enough "slots" to do so.

    I think either 5x5, or maybe 6x6 is the max grid size.

    I'm currently using an 8x9 grid.

    i DONT find it reasonable. He's OBVIOUSLY incapable of helping. This is a FOLDABLE FORUM. I paid him money while owning the FOLD expecting the same product ive had for 10+ years.... Im not here to feel sorry for some amateur dev. lol.. He needs to either get on the ball or ignore completely these posts and face the fact that he he doesnt have the capability to do it or give a Sh*t. Which is the REAL REASON. I dont want to hear any nonsense from this amateur. he's had 3 YEARS to get his bs together for foldables. NEGATIVE. Its all nonsense what he says. #samsungUI

    Sorry, what? I'm not sure if I follow you. Did you paid for the prime version 10 years ago or you've been using just the free version all these years?

    I'm not trying to defend Nova or its dev, just posting their official point of view. I think you're missing my point and I'm not related to Nova in any way.

    The main thing is, right now Nova doesn't support different layouts per display in foldable devices. Actually, it never did. If that a must for you better use the stock launcher or a different custom launcher that include that option, if there's any.

    I was able to run it as the main launcher inside and out but my only dislike was how it was too small outside for my layout...the advantage of stock launcher is that you can run different screens completely...so I used the Tasker method to accomplish it ..

    So when are you putting out your launcher that you have developed for foldables? I'm excited to try it out.

    Im just saying NOVA should not even be an option on a foldable EVER.. I am a PAID LIFETIME member and this launcher and the devs are terrible with foldables. Theyve had over 3 years to figure this sh*t out. I had a fold 1 and know what im talking about. Complete HACKS that only handicap the actual phone at this point. To use Nova will TURN OFF foldable options and availabilities. This launcher is horrible on the Fold and should NEVER be considered. Thats my point. Ive used this launcher for 7+ years but its a HORRENDOUS WRECK on a foldable. A ZERO option. Trash. Garbage. Vomit. Is that clear enough?

    Well, I think you've made clear that Nova doesn't work for your needs. Fair enough, but I don't think you need to be so aggressive, mate. It's just an app, it's up to you using it or not, right?
