    Its good. Resize icons, have a swipe gesture on ANY icons, choose smaller dock and "aggressive mode (in advanced at bottom of main setting menu) caches desktop so zero rewrite :)

    Perfectly content w/HOLO LAUNCHER/HD (PRO).I'm sure NOVA is worthy of mention in top-tier launcher discussions/comparisons,but,I've already got plenty invested in other launchers that I don't use (LPP{R.I.P.along w/GINGERBREAD 2.3.X},SPB SHELL 3-D,etc...).

    HOLO HD is lightweight & has yet to bog down/force close on ANDROID 4.1.1.
    I keep my desktop fairly light anyway.Otherwise,I'd probably give NOVA another look.

    The new small dock icons.
    Duno if i like them.
    Plus a new feature gives EVERY icon a secondary function by swiping it,, not just the dock now so ur camera icon can be Gallery too etc :)

    I played around with the icon sizing. I decided not to use it as icons of different sizes just looked a little weird to me. I pretty much just kept everything the same as the old version. I currently set it to have 6 rows of icons and no dock.
