I'm assuming you're talking about the Google Experience Launcher like the Nexus 5 has? I have the Verizon version of this phone and my launcher is the same as yours....he installed something. Google "GEL launcher apk" and follow the instructions.

Here is the Launcher, I just installed it on my phone, no issues.

I installed GEL too. After that I couldn't use some moto features like the camera shake move. And the active notifications were gone as well.

Strange, I have it installed as well but I didn't lose any moto features. Did you install it as a system app?
