Yep, huge Nova fan here. Have you bought the Premium version yet? Really like the gestures to launch apps.

Apex and Nova are very similar ... I bought Nova Prime before hearing about Apex, but tried their free version and liked it too

Like my home screen to be text based and that includes the clock.
led light flashes if message is there so don't need some icons along with carrier name etc clogging the screen

Started using Nova pretty recently and I am digging it. I've used stock, Apex, Go Launcher, Launcher Pro and I think I like Nova the best.

Shell 3D is also worth a look for a home page launcher. Works great on Droid Razr MAXX but not as quick on my Samsung Galaxy 10.1 from Verizon.

For some reason, on NOVA, when I 'add widget' there are just a list of Icons, no text?

I've been using NOVA for a while, but I still don't know why I don't get Widget text when adding a widget...

I have tried many launchers, but fell in love with one called TSF Shell. It is a bit expensive, but I found it well worth the money. I love the personalization options they have built into it. Check it out.

nope...if you want the text to show up in the widget selection menu..just long press the blank space near every icon and the text will be displayed...if you dont wanna select it, push it up like you would scroll thru a menu

If you want the text to remain displayed without having to hold your finger on the screen, swipe to the right. You can do this on any line for any icon, but only one at a time.

Ive used LauncherPro PLUS every since my first android. Ive used a few "antivirus" apps over the years and NONE of them ever picked up what an app " Antivirus for Android " picked up today reporting that LauncherPro has the "trojan.android" malicious virus!

Has anyone else used "Antivirus For Android" and got the same results? I dont want to believe the.fimdings because the app was installed from Google and there has never been reports of LauncherPro ever having a virus or being malicious.

I think I will try nova since I'm not using any launchers on my razr. How do launchers do in terms of effecting system performance/battery life? Do they lag at all or anything?

They are usually faster than the stock launcher and have way more options, no real noticeable battery drain

I recently got Nova (not the premuim version as I do not have a credit card) and love it.
However, does anyone know if you can lock it so that apps cannot be moved or added unless you unlock it?

Running Nova Prime and it's great! Like others have stated, I've used LPP,ADW,goLauncher...all were good. Nova and Apex are the best IMHO...YMMV

Nova is any day better {my opinion} ..go feels a bit more juvenile u know... I am experimenting on ADW and Apex now, Nova was the best of all.. altho very similar to Apex..compared to go, nova feels a bit more professional in looks and smooth I would say and the homescreen transitions are way better and crispier...regarding the battery usage, am not sure. well i can yap on and on....

you can have two launchers at the same time..try installing nova along with go and see for yourself.

I've been playing with Nova free for a week or so and I really like it but I keep going back and forth between it and my stock ICS. There's really not a ton more I like about it, especially with the way I set my phone up. There is definitely no reason for me to go with the paid version.

Never tried nova, but don't think it works with GB anyway. Just wanted to add that launchers and their functionality are in the eye of the beholder, that being the user. I like TSF shell and have been using it for awhile. It is what SPB mobile shell should have been. Pricey at $17, but compared to what I paid for my Maxx, not a big deal and worth it to me. I've tried most launchers out there and rotate thru a bunch of them , but TSF is really sweet with excellent support. But when it comes to launchers it's really a "to each their own" kind of thing. Btw,@OP your screen is way, way to busy for my taste. But, "to each their own".

well i have the free one too...but many here and in other forums state that the gesture option that you get with the prime version is too good and worth the price.

I've tried most launchers out there and rotate thru a bunch of them , but TSF is really sweet with excellent support. But when it comes to launchers it's really a "to each their own" kind of thing. Btw,@OP your screen is way, way to busy for my taste. But, "to each their own".
Agreed
that was a while back, right now its not that "Crowded". But anyway I spend a lot of time with the device and get a lot of work done with it.
as u said..... I like it this way

I still don't see anything better with Nova. Go has the same stuff as far as I can see. What am I missing??? I love trying new launchers, but I keep going back to Go.

Nova hands down is the best launcher. I have all of them, Nova,go, and adw and spb.Nova has good choices for themes and i love when i press the home button not only does it go back to the home screen but the dock also goes back to the main one. Which go launcher seems to be missing and adw is ehh not to much a fan of that one. Lastly spb is good but isnt worth 14.99. Its worth at most. 3.99
