it's got some nice features and add ons however.

Hmm, I've never experienced that.

I use NOVA. I'd love to use stock, but I cannot stand having less than a 7x7 grid, which just is not possible with TW

I always loved Apex, but it's not worth giving up all the features on this so touch wiz it is

Used to be hardcore Apex up until I couldn't use it on my GS3 with Paranoid Android. Been using Nova ever since. I'm a big fan of stock Android so TW just doesn't do it for me. I can't wait til we get an AOSP from, hopefully with Nova or Trebuchet built in.

Could you clarify for me what features are in touch wiz that aren't in the 3rd party launchers?

The s pen integration. Like how s note opens when I pull it out. You can also do the search with it. I love the profiles, like when I plug in headphones it goes to a Page set up for music.
The customization Of apex isn't worth giving up the features.

Can someone run though the features they like in tw? The bits I like about the note interface such as taking a screenshot awaiting your palm across the screen still work in Nova. On the other hand especially on the phone with a lot of storage things like the Nova Launcher ability to use folders in the app drawer to organize applications so you don't have to scroll through hundreds of them are really nice. Same with the gestures for control which really cut down on the poking and pecking when it comes to trying to get stuff started quickly. I used TW for a few days and just found it pretty pretty plain Jane with no extra features
