    Yep, huge Nova fan here. Have you bought the Premium version yet? Really like the gestures to launch apps.

    Apex and Nova are very similar ... I bought Nova Prime before hearing about Apex, but tried their free version and liked it too

    Like my home screen to be text based and that includes the clock.
    led light flashes if message is there so don't need some icons along with carrier name etc clogging the screen

    Started using Nova pretty recently and I am digging it. I've used stock, Apex, Go Launcher, Launcher Pro and I think I like Nova the best.

    Shell 3D is also worth a look for a home page launcher. Works great on Droid Razr MAXX but not as quick on my Samsung Galaxy 10.1 from Verizon.

    For some reason, on NOVA, when I 'add widget' there are just a list of Icons, no text?

    I've been using NOVA for a while, but I still don't know why I don't get Widget text when adding a widget...

    I have tried many launchers, but fell in love with one called TSF Shell. It is a bit expensive, but I found it well worth the money. I love the personalization options they have built into it. Check it out.

    Are you guys rooted? I think with nova you have to be rooted in order for widget previews to show up

    nope...if you want the text to show up in the widget selection menu..just long press the blank space near every icon and the text will be displayed...if you dont wanna select it, push it up like you would scroll thru a menu

    If you want the text to remain displayed without having to hold your finger on the screen, swipe to the right. You can do this on any line for any icon, but only one at a time.

    Ive used LauncherPro PLUS every since my first android. Ive used a few "antivirus" apps over the years and NONE of them ever picked up what an app " Antivirus for Android " picked up today reporting that LauncherPro has the "trojan.android" malicious virus!

    Has anyone else used "Antivirus For Android" and got the same results? I dont want to believe the.fimdings because the app was installed from Google and there has never been reports of LauncherPro ever having a virus or being malicious.

    Probably a false positive.
