    I'm really going to have to try out Apex Launcher. Looks awesome.

    I'm having trouble uploading a screenshot. Picasa kees bombing on me. Any other suggestions on an Android integrated host?

    Ok, so I just installed Apex and am having the same issue with the Wallpaper that I did with Go. When I select the wallpaper, it wants to crop it into a portrait format that crops the ends when scrolling. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

    One thing I've noticed, is that on the bottom toolbar, Apex won't exceed 5 icons across, whereas Nova will allow more.

    Apex allows more, in fact I just changed mine to 7. However, I have the paid version, not sure if you can do this with the free version.

    its a TouchWiz limitation, not an issue with your launcher...TouchWiz doesn't use wallpaper scrolling...so it wants to crop the image to fit a single screen...

    Which Android System is this for? Also, does this require a root?

    im using One More Clock widget like said above...checking out the "legit" version (Blur) right now lol

    Edit:

    1. The actual Blur version of the clock(interactive one) REQUIRES the Blur Launcher
    2. The Blur Launcher isn't bad AT ALL
    3. The interactive Blur widget is SICK
    4. there is no way to tie the Blur widget to open our alarm section...so we would probably need to install Motorola's alarm apk as well...
    5. wish there was more customization in the Motorola launcher (of course)


    just for reference...first picture is Nova Launcher with OMC widget "Chrome Rings" second picture is Motorola Blur Launcher with stock "Circles" widget

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    IMO the actual Motorola Circles Widget is above and beyond THE BEST clock/weather widget on Android...if a dev can figure out how to make it work with third party launchers/apps...im all over it...as it is right now i just miss to much of Nova's customization to run the Moto Blur launcher full time

    Thanks for the info. I was under the impression that some folks had it working with their own wallpaper. It works fine with the Samsung and Apex wallpapers. Does anyone know where they're located?
