    My go to launcher because touchwiz isn't really pretty and this allows you to customise the crap out of your homescreen and drawer. Get Nova Launcher Prime for even better results.

    The only launcher you'll ever need. Gestures, customization, organizational treats...what more could you want? Besides you can get as close to stock Android as possible and ditch TouchWiz, Sense, or whatever garbage you're currently running.

    I've went through a thousand launcher apps and always come back to Nova Launcher. It works perfectly and has just enough customization to allow you to make it yours.
