    I think I will try nova since I'm not using any launchers on my razr. How do launchers do in terms of effecting system performance/battery life? Do they lag at all or anything?

    They are usually faster than the stock launcher and have way more options, no real noticeable battery drain

    I downloaded it, I can confirm it works with the new Droid HD custom rom.

    I just tried Apex and it does have the same progblem..I am stock, non rooted and would love to find a launcher that would actually show the widget icons as well as the labels.
     
  6. I recently got Nova (not the premuim version as I do not have a credit card) and love it.
    However, does anyone know if you can lock it so that apps cannot be moved or added unless you unlock it?

    Running Nova Prime and it's great! Like others have stated, I've used LPP,ADW,goLauncher...all were good. Nova and Apex are the best IMHO...YMMV:beer:
     
  10. I'm enjoying Nova Prime very much. Thanks for sharing the great deal!

    Nova is any day better {my opinion} ..go feels a bit more juvenile u know... I am experimenting on ADW and Apex now, Nova was the best of all.. altho very similar to Apex..compared to go, nova feels a bit more professional in looks and smooth I would say and the homescreen transitions are way better and crispier...regarding the battery usage, am not sure. well i can yap on and on....

    you can have two launchers at the same time..try installing nova along with go and see for yourself.:)

    I've been playing with Nova free for a week or so and I really like it but I keep going back and forth between it and my stock ICS. There's really not a ton more I like about it, especially with the way I set my phone up. There is definitely no reason for me to go with the paid version.

    Never tried nova, but don't think it works with GB anyway. Just wanted to add that launchers and their functionality are in the eye of the beholder, that being the user. I like TSF shell and have been using it for awhile. It is what SPB mobile shell should have been. Pricey at $17, but compared to what I paid for my Maxx, not a big deal and worth it to me. I've tried most launchers out there and rotate thru a bunch of them , but TSF is really sweet with excellent support. But when it comes to launchers it's really a "to each their own" kind of thing. Btw,@OP your screen is way, way to busy for my taste. But, "to each their own". :)

    well i have the free one too...but many here and in other forums state that the gesture option that you get with the prime version is too good and worth the price.

    Agreed :)
    that was a while back, right now its not that "Crowded". But anyway I spend a lot of time with the device and get a lot of work done with it.
    as u said..... I like it this way :)

    I still don't see anything better with Nova. Go has the same stuff as far as I can see. What am I missing??? I love trying new launchers, but I keep going back to Go.

    Nova hands down is the best launcher. I have all of them, Nova,go, and adw and spb.Nova has good choices for themes and i love when i press the home button not only does it go back to the home screen but the dock also goes back to the main one. Which go launcher seems to be missing and adw is ehh not to much a fan of that one. Lastly spb is good but isnt worth 14.99. Its worth at most. 3.99
