    out of curiosity which Launcher is everyone using? i tried apex recently. it was good however i didnt like the fact i was unable to use widgets unless i was rooted. i know there is a few launchers out, but what is everyone using and what do you like about the specific browser?

    Are you talking about browser or launcher? Your poll is about ICS/JB launcher.

    Anyway my favorite is Apex launcher and Dolphin browser to answer both.

    I was using stock touchwiz for the longest time. Switched to GO launcher with my new JB rom. It finally has circular transitions. That is, if you're on home screen five, and flick right, you go back to one! Not every launcher seems to do that.

    Also, GO has a nice calendar widget, and plenty of themes!

    Tad confused....

    Are you asking about Browsers or Launchers :D

    Browser != Launcher ;)

    Poll says:
    which browser are you using and prefer?

    But you list launchers....

    Apex/Chrome just in case.

    I tried apex, go, nova but now I'm back to tw. It's so much smoother for me, but that could be because I crank the rows/columns as high as possible on the others.

    Go launcher. Consistency is everything and from gb to jb no real problems
    Edit: maybe ignore that. Maybe time for a different launcher for jellybean as it's never been quite butter for more than a couple of minutes, treacle maybe. . Clutching straws though, more likely something else

    i use apex, and i have widgets. the only limitation of apex in reference to widgets and rooting (as well as every other custom launcher, i believe) is that you cannot drag widgets from the application drawer to the homescreen. you can just add them like we all used to by longpressing on your homescreen and selecting widgets and then picking the one you want.

    i think most launchers have this function buried somewhere in their settings :)
