How do you setup these profiles. . I have not seen this

Clear nova as your default, then select tw (you don't have to make it default just to see what I mean). Then plug in headphones and it goes to your music Page. You can change it around. I have a 5x3 player pro widget and play music widget. S pen and dock also have there own pages.

Go launcher, without a doubt. I tried TW for a while but the folder was awful.
  • Doesn't close the folder after clicking on an app
  • You can't uninstal from dragging and holding on trash
  • No customizable transitions
  • I don't like the stock weather widget, go widget gives you access to alarm, weather, calendar, and multiple locations (by swiping up or down)
  • Not able to adjust the grid size (you can in go)
  • I like the classy icon themes for the dock bar at the bottom, I don't like bubbly goofy colorful app links down in the bottom
  • I don't want to install Fbook, I like the go widget for Fbook.

Its built into tw, the pages do it automatically.
Here's a screen of the Page it goes to when I plug in headphones http://db.tt/xoiSU8J8
I listen to headphones a lot at work so it's a nice feature for me.
The top widget is player pro, the bottom is Google play. One I download pandora I will add that too

I used Apex on my PA GS3 all the time. Currently using it on the N2. I like being able to adjust the # of columns/rows, remove the dock, resize any widget, and having my app launcher scroll vertically. My only gripe is that Titanium Backup doesn't back up my widgets (not sure if any other launchers did), but it does back up my shorcuts/folders.

I would like to see a stock jb nexus 7 launcher. 7 items in the static row and 6x6. Google now on the top. But I do like the TW headphones and pen launcher pages.

I have a few problems using Nova.
First the sms widget doesn't get updated. Calendar widget that is in a full layout in Touch Wiz, in Nova and other launchers shows up in a week layout.

Anyone one know how to fix this?
