One thing that makes Android so appealing is the ability to customize almost every aspect of the open-source software. Unfortunately, manufactures tend to divulge their own design standards with intrusive skins that hinder the overall experience. Many users have turned to third-party launchers to suit their needs and with the recent release of nearly-stock options like Apex, Nova and other less traditional alternatives like the MIUI-themed MiHome, it seems as if there are an incredible amount to choose from. So, do you prefer a stock experience or have you picked up a launcher from the Play Store? We’d love to hear which one you’ve chosen in the comments below.
depends on what rom im using.. if im running ICS, then I'm running Nova. On Pre-ICS roms, I'm using GO Launcher of course
Nova launcher. I tried apex for a while but nova seemed so much smoother with there gestures. Very happy with it on my galaxy nexus.
always come back to go launcher. even used spb for awhile which is really good but probably not quite worth the 15.00 pricetag.
No one else on here is using Nova launcher huh? I love this launcher on ics over stock. On cm7 I was using launcherpro and wish there were more updates to it
ADW Launcher now that I'm on CM7.2 but I will switch for Trebuchet or sth. similar when ICS for the Desire is done.
i just learned about MiHome. i dropped Go Launcher and been using MiHome ever since. brighter,cleaner,just as smooth
I'm running the ICS stock launcher right now. I may go back to TouchWiz tomorrow.
