    Good to see you here again, Kevin. :)

    I'll be paying close attention to this topic - Nova Prime is my launcher of choice on the DZ and GS2 but I've yet to see how it plays with my Xperia Z. Sounds like a good excuse to try out the latest beta.... :D

    Just to say that i'm a Nova Launcher Prime user, and didn't notice the beta settings option so i'll give that a go.

    It made my lower spec huawei fly, and i'm liking it on my note 2 as well.

    I am using a Galaxy S3 running Nova Prime. I have configured it with the app tray removed and showing 6 rows x 4 columns. The latest version of Nova Prime causes an issue with the music player widget. The 4x1 widget normally displays the name of the track playing right at the bottom of the widget. When I updated to the last version of Nova Prime, I found that the track name gets cut off, so I only see the 3/4 of the track. When I bought Nova Prime back in September 2012, it didn't have this issue.

    Does anyone know if the beta fixes this?

    i have Nova but not Prime....

    Is there anywhere to see the actual differences between the 2? Like details of what additional transition effects etc etc?

    Its been a long time since i used the free one mate but i think it lacks things like hiding statusbar and/or dock and dock icon gestures if i remember right :thumbup:


    Just discovered the "hide clock" (while in homescreen) option. Really nice with a transparent statusbar. I used to just keep statusbar hidden but i like this :beer:
