Go Launcher EX on the phone, and the Tab is running stock TouchWiz
Nova prime. Used to use go launcher but I started to hate the ui, so I switched.
Do you need to be rooted to use launchers like Nova Prime and others.
Still new to this whole Android world.
Not at all, you just install them as you would any other app from Play. The next time you press the home button, you'll be prompted which you want to use, the new launcher or your phones default. From there, it's up to you how you configure it.
Oh okay. Thanks!!
No, but certain features do require rooting such as widgets in your app drawer for nova launcher.
I'm actually quiet happy with the launcher without having to root.
Nova (sadly not Prime) Launcher here. Any more browsing of these threads and I will probably be convinced to buy the full.
Anyone using Next Launcher? Gonna get that or TSF Shell.
I run apex because it came with my rom. Honestly tho, I should try some others.
I'm using Go on CM7 MTDEV (most recent version), but am seriously considering changing. DH and I are using the same ROM on our Triumphs and his is much more stable than mine (I'm getting several spontaneous reboots a day, at random, he isn't reporting any), and my battery life is pretty bad. Add to that I'm getting tired of all the nags about more Go apps available, and it may be time for a change.
I'm using Next it is amazing and in my openion the best three launcher are
1 - SPb shell
2 - Next
3 - TSF
Nova Prime, can't fault it! :thumbup:
Im using apex for my S2 and stock touchwiz for my Note 10.1
Nova Prime. Love it!
I use Nova Prime - great if you love the stock UI, but need to apply small tweaks like grid sizing, hiding apps in the drawer etc.
I use GOLEX on my phone because of the all the customizable options... tried pretty much every launcher and always come back to GOLEX... on my tablet I use ADW because I like how it allows me to expand the screen to fully use up the screen without margins.
i like holo launcher. Its simple for me and it works well on my tablet and phone.
I use apex pro. Chose it over nova because set up menus seemed more intuitive.
Previously used GO Launcher but got really fed up being bombarded with updates - sometimes two updates in less than 24 hours. Now using ADW, which is very good indeed.
I use Nova Lanuncher!
Was using Nova Prime and love it. Now I'm trying out TSF shell and the more I use it the more I like it. Kinda pricey but was worth it for a change of pace.
I normally switch out between go and apex, can't really decide between the 2
I was using Go, but got tired of it always deleting my folders in both the app drawer and my home screen. I also didn't like having to update constantly or the notifications for every new theme that came out.
Switched to Nova and will be purchasing Prime today. It's really smooth and seems to run quicker on my phone than Go did. I also like all the customizations. It just looks nicer to me.
