Samsung galaxy s4 VZ not rooted.

I tried using Nova Launcher in the hopes of speeding things up and being better able to organize. After 14 hrs of high normal use, Nova Launcher is using 68 MB. Of memory and the add on to count calls etc is using another 4 MB. this seems quite high, but I don't know whether my expectations are reasonable.

Thoughts and recommendations appreciated.

I wouldn't worry about the amount of RAM it is using. 68 seems kinda high, but compared to the 2GB that as I recall the S4 has, Nova is taking up about .033% of your RAM. Don't sweat it.

Thanks. Do you have any thoughts about what may make Nova "run kind of high"?

I don't really consider that high due to what Nova runs. Everything you do goes through or is executed by Nova.
