    I'm using TSF Shell Launcher now. Kinda pricey, but I had to check it out after all the hype a few months back on XDA
    It is very nice tho!

    I run Holo Launcher on my phone and Nova Launcher Prime on the tab2, which I paid for during the 25 cent sale awhile back.

    I like both of them.

    I think there is a similar thread about this floating around someplace.

    I use Go launcher ex on my S3's, and Apex on my Note 2.
    Both are very customizable and quite snappy in performance.

    I bought ADW last year. It's been updated and I like it. I tried Nova and Apex - they were OK, but they got deleted. Since I only want certain parts of the Launcher, ADW does fine.

    Launcher Pro use to be the top of the line Launcher but the developer has pretty much given up on it. I am currently using Apex but I also like Nova too, both powerful launchers.

    Nova Prime on my phone and Transformer, Apex Pro on my Nexus 7.

    For some reason, Nova Prime was pretty jittery on the N7, Apex works fine though.

    Hey Everyone i just wanted to let you know I will be moving this thread into the Android Themes forum. Since it is about launchers it seems to belong over there.

    Hope this isn't too much of a hassle.

    ---------

    Personally though i use Nova Launcher and love how customizable it is, especially with making the screens be able to hold more apps and such. Oh and the Tesla Unread app paired with this launcher is great :)

    I used to have Zeam Launcher on my Gingerbread Devices (A818 Duo), but then I changed it from there to Lightning Launcher. Eventually with the new ICS device (A878 Duo), I tried using the Docomo Pallette Launcher and eventually went back to Lightning Launcher.

    Tl;Dr - Lightning Launcher

    Update:

    I'm now using nova with no second thoughts. It's fantastic. It keeps the look of the stock android launcher but completely customizable, although the windows launcher is tempting....

    Nova prime. It's the greatest but requires ICS and above.

    I used Launcher7 on my commando, now I'm using Nova on my RAZR maxx HD. I love it...so smooth, and so much customization.
