Default Any way to get 5 app slots per row/column on stock launcher?

Hey guys. Picked up my N3 yesterday and so far love it. Came from an S2 using a few different launchers (go, nova). Both those launchers I have had a few issues with on the N3. Is there any way to get the stock launcher to show 5 apps per row and column?

Thanks!

I don't believe there is on the stock launcher.

Download Nova Prime. Customize the grid to your hearts content. Customize App Icons, App Titles and more. Nova Prime is a MUST BUY for ANY Android device.

I didn't like it personally, liked the possibilities on my old EVO but there was something off about it I couldn't quite place. Personally think you should ask around and see who has it unless there is a lite version to try out.

I've had issues with Nova as stated in my original post. Force closes every time it's opened to try and do anything. GO is much more stable...but has bugs all its own.

Anybody try Apex Launcher / Pro yet on Note 3? I plan to start with native TW the first few days when I get my phone, but expect to return to Apex if it works well.

I haven't (obviously lol) but you ninja'd me while I was off fetching the link.

Check out "Apex Launcher"

Been using HOLO LAUNCHER (HD) for over a year now, tried others, but, always come back to HOLO.

I think Holo, Nova and Apex are all very similar in form and function. If you liked Nova (irrespective of the issues) then one of the other two will suit you.

I had Go for a while but it was the most godawful launcher I had ever used. Your mileage obviously varied from my own but I found it to be very unstable.

I'm using Nova Prime and it's not fallen over once for me but then we use our devices differently, with different apps installed and so on so my experience of it will naturally be different to your own.

Personally I think all launchers have their quirks- none are flawless and as said, YMMV.
I don't need launchers that do more than I'll ever need.
I have them all but for about the past 8 months I've been using Buzz and Nemus launcher.

@zmarko use the multi con app. I'm very happy with it. Currently got an 4 by 8 grid. Saved me from changing my launcher.

^^^^^
What is this MULTI-CON that you speak of?

A link or the full name of the application would be appreciated.

I'll be the 1st to admit I was wrong, this is a GEM of a tool for customizing, especially a stock launcher - U/I.

Paired w/ULTIMATE ROTATION CONTROL, it makes TOUCHWIZ a decent stock U/I.

Gonna try it out on the HTC ONE, but, that's for another forum.......

I would suggest trying this application out, it changes the app drawer and you can customize it.

Best Launcher, it's so good, the beta is even better, looks just like kitkat.

Couldn't be happier with that launcher!
