Nova Launcher


Thursday 12th of July 2012 / androidforums.com
If you are like me you probably felt pretty disappointed with the ICS update we had been waiting so long to get. It was basically an app update and a nifty task manager after Sammy's touchwiz got a hold of it.However, all is not lost! By updating to ICS we are now compatible with the Nova Launcher from Google Play. I've tried Go Launcher and all kinds of different themes: simply put, Nova Launcher blows them all away. Before you dismiss Nova as just another buggy, half-assed launcher overlay, you need to realize it is so professionally done it is basically Stock ICS with a few more customization options. If you don't believe me just read the reviews and see how many Galaxy Nexus users give Nova 5 stars! I will never go back to touchwiz. And now that I know Nova is available I won't ever regret going with the Note over the Nexus again (really stock ICS was the only advantage there).

Nova Launcher allowing Touchwiz launcher to appear upon backing out of apps


Tuesday 30th of April 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
I have Nova Launcher Prime - just set it up on my new S4. It seems that the default with the home button is working fine...but when I leave an app by using the BACK button rather than the home button, it dumps me out to Touchwiz and I have to hit the home button again to get back to Nova. Anyone else able to reproduce? Thanks

Home Button/Nova Launcher


Saturday 27th of October 2012 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hi, I'm kind of new with the Android world since I would always buy the cheapest flip phones on the market. Now that I've talked a little bit about myself here's my problem... I've recently downloaded the Nova Launcher and Nova Launcher Prime on my Samsung Galaxy S3 (it's not a discussion of who's better Apex or Nova), I love it! The one thing I don't like and I know there's a solution: when I hit the home button, it keeps asking me if I want Nova or Touchwiz, but really what I want is to go at my home page... I went to the Nova Settings and clicked on Default Page for my Home button but it keeps asking which Launcher I want... Does anyone have the same problem? If yes, do you know the solution of this problem I'm having? Thanks for your time! JC

Nova Launcher Issue - Keeps Returning to TouchWiz


Friday 07th of June 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
As the title states, my Nova keeps returning to TouchWiz. I have it set as the default launcher and sometimes when I back out of an app it returns to TouchWiz and I have to press the home button to get back to Nova. I've never had this issue before, as I'm coming from a DNA. Does anyone have any advice? Thanks.

Nova Launcher Prime and the S4 - Really like it , but have a question.


Saturday 08th of June 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
I was liking TouchWiz on the S4 but missed several things I could do on the S3. I also wanted to have the option for more icons on each page. I had previously used GoLauncher for over a year on my Droid Charge but decided to try Nova Launcher Prime instead. So far, I really like it. There are so many options available and it seems like an more "adult launcher" as opposed to the occasional silliness one sees with GoLauncher. (all the Hello Kitty themes for example). I especially like that Nova can import almost all of the icons from your TouchWiz homepages which is such a timesaver. You just have to reinstall the widgets. (GoLauncher claimed you could do this, but I could never get it to work) Nova also allows continuous scrolling of the home pages, which apparently, Sammy thought we could handle on the S3, but not on the S4. (Thank You Sammy: We are now safe from Continuous Scrolling home pages and the nefarious Blocking Mode). Anyway..... One issue that I'm having involves creating Shortcuts from bookmarks in the Browsers. For some reason, I cannot get the Shortcut to appe

Nova Launcher for S3


Thursday 20th of June 2013 / droidforums.net
Just installed Nova Launcher to replace the touchwiz launcher on my S3. I've got to say that this is one of the best launchers I have used. My phone seems to be running faster and the features of Nova are pretty amazing. I highly recommend this launcher if you're looking to replace touchwiz. The only question I have about it is regarding themes. Are there themes or icon packs I can install and if so how do I install them? Thanks in advanceSent from my Synergized S3 using Tapatalk 2

Nova Launcher and "Active applications" widget inconsistency


Wednesday 03rd of July 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Anyone running the nova launcher with the active apps widget that came with the phone? I like to keep this widget on my home screen just so I can quickly see if I have any apps that I need to "end". Problem is, the widget mostly says that I have 0 apps running when I know that's incorrect. I'll then choose the widget and it sure enough takes me to the task manager and I'll in fact have a couple of apps running. It's been inconsistent with it's display ever since I downloaded nova yesterday. Works fine with touchwiz, but so far it's been inconsistent with nova launcher. Anyone else having this issue? Any fixes?

Nova launcher S4


Thursday 25th of July 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hi guys just got an s4 after having an s2 it's amazing and loving it so far, but have read in some places about Nova launcher and how it's better than touchwiz and after playing with it for an afternoon I agree, I just have a few questions about it though, do I loose anything by using nova over touchwiz and secondly does it stress my phone more and if it does is it safe to force stop touchwiz, sorry for such a long post.

Nova Launcher and TouchWiz


Thursday 01st of August 2013 / androidforums.com
Help me out here - Will the TouchWiz features still work if I install the Nova Launcher? I like air gestures and voice commands, and would like them around if I changed launchers from stock. Know this is a simple question, but I wasn't really sure I knew the answer .

Samsung Galaxy S5 Default Application Issue - Nova Launcher


Sunday 27th of April 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
Has anyone had any issues using the Nova Launcher as the default application on their S5? My phone is repeatedly asking 'Complete action using' Nova Launcher of TouchWiz over and over for the same apps, every time, despite clicking 'Always' whenever prompted.
