Probably because it might be a touchwiz feature.

I use nova, and the hovering works for me. It doesn't do anything while nova is active except show the circle, but it works normally in apps that support it.

Have you tried running the standard launcher to see if hovering comes back? Then you would know for sure.

I have the same experience as MrMLK. That's how is supposed to work. I didn't expect the Nova team to write in support for a feature on a small subset of devices. If Spen use becomes a huge hit and grabs a substantial amount of market share, devs will begin to support it if there are apis for it. I'm not a developer so I have no idea if there even is an api.
It seems the Note 2 is really taking of so this may become a reality in the future. I could, of course, be totally wrong.

If I have been helpful to you, please go to the store, buy a bunch of beer, and send it to my house.
