    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.

    Really, even if you're okay with your current homescreen setup, this one is worth try, it needs a bit of tinkering like 5min and you're done. It's faster than any OEM stock launcher I've tried so far. And offers a bucket load of features ad cutomization, yet so simple to set. Highly recommended folks.

    Dodol, ADW, Go, Apex, Buzz, Themer...There are MANY Launchers on the Play Store and recently I went on a testing spree (as I do) trying all the Launchers namely looking for half decent nested folder support and Nova does this the best PLUS it's actually a really quick Launcher to use and extremely customizable so it's a win-win!

    My long time go-to launcher. It has an immense number of customization options. Use it to stay organized or go all the way and create a completely unique look. Most launchers just do not compare. Nova Launcher has set the bar very high.
