Default Nova all the Way

Nova is way better and responsive than apex.i found apex to be smoother but a bit laggy.

Apex is much better. I found nova to be really laggy and just too slow guys.

Zeam launcher does it for me - very light, easy to use - no complaints

I actually purchased Nova Launcher Prime, and I'm very pleased with the newest version, I know it's only getting better. Gestures are great, vertical scroll in app drawer, and rock steady on my phone - even though I'm running the beta.

Nova all the way.

Sense 4.0 for me lol, if I was using an ice launcher though it would definitely be Apex for the features.

[QUOTE=quijote1;25390304]I have Apex and it has folders....ICS Remix 1.1[/QUOTE ]

It has folders on the launcher screens but not in the app drawer. As far as i know they have enabled custom app tabs with their latest update but thats not the same.
Anyway hope they do it someday cause its a nice launcher!

Does the Apex backup and restore desktop items work? I cant seem to get it to work at all.
Never restores my icons?
