    i love it. the fact that it was built from ICS source, for ICS phones only sold me. most of the other ICS launchers are skinned versions of launchers made for Froyo and Gingerbread. Nova gives you the look and features of stock ICS while offering far more options. so far i have used it to remove the google search bar, resize a few widgets, change my icon grid from 5x4 to 6x5, and customize app icons. i also love that it lets you long press to add widgets, i hate that the stock launcher removed that feature.

    Anyone know of a picture frame type widget? The built in one is too big to fit on how I want my main home screen set up.

    When you go to adjust the background color, move the "alpha" slider all the way to the left. Or however far to the left you want, depending on how transparent you want it.

    I don't have my Nexus yet (later today) but I was hoping ICS was like Honeycomb where you can resize widgets. In Honeycomb, if you long press a widget and release, the widget is outlined and you can drag the sides, top and bottom to make it as big as you want.

    Sounds like maybe ICS does not work the same way.

    Since this is stickied the OP should update the first post to reflect a standard posting scheme as noted above.

    I created it in Fireworks. You can download it from here and crop it in Android how you like.

    So if you're creating a wallpaper to fill up all the screens, what resolution do you use?

    Wilfred, can I ask where you got the clock and date widget you are using? I love the simplicity and lack of a border around it.

    It looks like Beautiful Widgets with the background set to totally transparent, not sure of the skin though. I'd love to know where the wallpaper came from!

    I have beautiful widgets but couldn't find that widget. And how do you make the background transparent?

    Open your beautiful widgets from the app drawer and it's one of the boxes to hide the background.

    Also - the skin is possibly CrystalX for the weather. And the widget looks like beautiful super clock 2 x 1.
