Using NOVA right now. Seems like it'll suit my needs. Haven't fully set everything up yet, but once I do, I'll post up my thoughts on here. So far, seems fairly basic. I didn't lose any of the things through TouchWiz that I use. If I'm able to configure it the way I want, NOVA will likely be my launcher of choice...BUT, I'm still open to the others, so for those that want to make an argument for other launchers, here are the things that are most important for me:
2-at least 9 homescreens
3-ability to create folders in the app drawer (NOVA Prime says I can do both, which I really like)
4-ability to rotate portrait/landscape on the homescreens
5-Transparent background in app drawer, transparent background on dock
Bonus function, but not a deal breaker
- Multiple animations for transitions on homescreens and in app drawer (Go Launcher EX was awesome with this, but I did experience it being a battery hog, much like many had mentioned about it before).
So, if anybody can make a case that either APEX or HOLO HD are better than NOVA on any of these points, please chime in.
