    i've enjoyed the nova launcher on my note 2 so far but was wondering if there were other ones out there that you all liked more. not a fan of the go launcher btw. i've heard good things about holo and lightning, but haven't actually tried them out yet
    thanks

    I've used them all; now I'm using Nemus--it's minimal and I don't need much in a launcher.

    I've been walking around with nova installed but unused for months.
    I've never found a real need for it that would make up for the time it would take to set it up.
    So I still use TW.

    Nova has an import option. You could import your setup from Touchwiz & tweak it little by little. It really doesn't take long if you're not doing any heavy customizing.

    I tried using both Launcher 7 and Nova recently but there were a few things that put me off them:

    - Launcher 7 seemed to drain the battery quicker than TW
    - The S Planner widget wouldn't work with either of them
    - I couldn't find a way to create folders within the app drawer in either

    So I've gone back to using Touchwiz, which does everything I need it to really.

    I just downloaded Splay launcher. I like it. It's a very good one handed(one-thumb?) interface.

    I couldn't live without my gestures on Nova. Plus it's a lot easier to make folders.

    On Nova you can set your gestures so that a swipe up on an icon will perform an action, like open another app or instantly go to that person's text message string.

    I like it. Although if I never used it I wouldn't know what I was missing.
