    hi, so i was wondering which launcher do you use for your one x. What are the main reasons for you choosing a launcher over the sense skin

    Apex Launcher at the moment, although that's mainly because it came with the ROM I'm using. I would say the main reason for using a third party launcher, other than from a personal point of view really disliking Sense, is to get a much better level of customization.

    I have used several include Apex, Launcher Pro and Go all of them have pro's and con's (the non stuttering live wallpaper for one) but I still prefer Sense at the moment and I really hope that HTC iron out a few of the niggles and bugs (again the stuttering wallpaper) in the very near future.

    I'm sticking with sense for now. One of the reasons for moving to HTC, always liked sense (had the sensation for a couple of months and missed it when I switched to the Galaxy Nexus.)
    Wish they had stuck with 3.0. I'm a sucker for animations.

    Sense for me. Whilst I'm usnig a Sense ROM, I'll stick with that, but when if I change to AOSP, I'll go for Apex or Nova probably.

    I have been using Launcher and Go over the past couple years but on the X I really like the Sense and feel it does everything I want a launcher to do. That plus now I dont have to take up any valuable space with an additional launcher.

    I'm using Sense. I used GO on my Desire and loved it but the menu button appearing at the bottom of the launcher on the X is not cool.

    Tried Nova and Apex over the last couple of days and just can't get into either of them, despite both coming highly recommended.

    I hated Sense on the Desire but I am actually really liking it on the X. Seems smother, more refined and not as 'bloaty' as before.

    I was going to look for a vanilla ROM and pop that on the phone when it became available but now I'm not so sure.

    I'm also using apex, seem to be having trouble with sense auto updating some widgets but using apex these apps auto update with no problem (things like weather,BBC news).
