Bye Bye Sense

Okay after about 8 hours, I couldn't stand how big the screen was and how much space there was between all the icons in the home screens. What a waste of real estate.

I'm giving Nova a shot, and may see if Apex is any better.

Am I losing anything besides Sense widgets? I've already set up my lock screen the way I want it before making Nova the default, so my lock screen is fine.

Anybody else have any experience with the new ICS launchers vs Sense?

I have to wait a little longer I just got it about an hour ago... But so far not a big fan...

I use Launch-X Pro to get more icons on the screen. Used it on my OG EVO and it's working even better on the EVOLTE. It's just an app, not a full launcher replacement.

Nova works well for me now. I'll still give Apex a shot this weekend. I'm still not too sure of the differences. I'm also liking having my vertical app drawer back. I hated the side swiping pages.

And is anybody else getting scrollable widgets to work in Sense? My Pure Calendar widget wouldn't scroll in Sense...but works fine in Nova.

I used Apex on CM9 on my old phone. I liked it better than Nova. I've never had a Sense phone, so I'm going to give it a fair shake for a few days. I have a sneaky feeling that I'll be rooting and ROMing as soon as some stable ROMs are available though.

This thread is a great example of things that can never happen with iOS. Google must love stuff like these comments.

Edit - i.e. Android is better since users can customize it to their liking. iOS? Take it or leave it. Or, go wacky making an exciting folder.

Hmm, I actually think exactly the opposite. If you don't like what is there out-of-the-box, you change it.

iOS's credo is if you don't like what is there out-of-the-box, tough [deleted].

BUT YOU CAN MAKE FOLDERS!

Also, Nova Prime is one of the best purchases one can make in the Play Store.
