Which launcher do you use?
I have been using APEX Pro since it came out and I Love it. I see that NOVA is winning the race and I'm wondering if it's a better launcher than the rest or is it because it comes as stock on alot of aosp roms.

How did you get in the alpha for Chameleon? This looks very interesting! They still looking for more testers?

I already had done those tweaks. I had them set at 0.5. Nova was much smoother by comparison.

I have always liked Go Launcher EX for my personal use. I've used it with my Evo 4G, Motorola Milestone X2 and now with the S3.
Like it while also using the Pacman Rom.

i've been using the holo launcher hd pro now for some time and i truly love the way it works. its smooth, elegant, doesnt get in the way, and best off all, gives me an AOSP look and feel when running a non-AOSP rom. i also use the holo locker as well. i use this launcher on both my S3 and my Xoom tablet

it seems to me that the holo launcher doesnt get enough respect. i see many a custom rom that includes nova or apex, but not holo (or even adw or go launchers for that matter).

when i search for "launcher" on the play store the first five results are in order GO, ADW, Nova, Apex, and Launcher 7, with Nova Prime and Apex Pro 6th and 7th.

Holo is on the first page of results, but is second from the bottom. hardly respectable if you ask me. there are themes that show up higher in that search

anyway, so lets keep it civil and not bash on each others choice of launcher. i just want to get a feel for how popular these launchers are on the S3 or do you prefer the stock TouchWiz interface?

let your voice be heard and vote above!

Can't wait to see the Infamous launcher!

Re: Which launcher do you use?
I like how you can change the desktop grid size to 4x5 in nova... Gives more screen real estate... With 4x4 grid the icons are too big and a waste of space. With 5x5 the widgets Dont center properly. 4x5 is perfect imho

I also like how you can remove the divider bar between the dock and the rest of the screen

There may be other launchers that use these features... But I'm just saying what features I like in nova

I Dont like go launcher or any go app for that matter.. Too bloated and obtrusive
