Default Lightning Launcher recommendation

I haven't seen anyone talk about this launcher, but it is awesome. Yes, you have to pay for it, but with the amount of customizations available it's well worth it. I know I'm a newb around here, and this post may not be taken seriously, but I thought I'd try to get a great dev paid to keep up such great work. Best feature that I've been looking for for over a year is being able to put widgets inside a folder on your home screen.

And that's my 2 cents. Please don't be too harsh, remember I'm a newb around here.

Be easy on the noob, but this should be in the Themes and Apps section of the forum. Hopefully a mod moves it.

But back to the launcher, looks cool but I prefer TouchWiz, I'm one of those :P

Just because it has Corning Gorilla Glass™ doesn't mean it won't break/scratch, it is glass after all.

This is the "Tasker" of launchers. It's incredibly powerful & customizable. Just a bit of a learning curve. But much like with Tasker, once you do a few things, the rest gets a lot easier to figure out.

I actually got frustrated the first time I tried the free Lightning Launcher. And gave up on it the first day.
Read your thread and got the ambition to try it out again.
Really glad I did.
Nova Prime has been outstanding for me, but I was missing some customization options and Nova Prime developer team has not responded to my inquiries. So I'm going to double-down and watch a couple Lightning Launcher videos and figure it out.

I really, really like that it lets you have multiple home screen/profile setups. So if I'm right, I can pull up a different homescreen setup for each Tasker profile I have set up.

Also, there are profile/themes you can download from Play Store that give you some pre-arranged fancy-ass customization. Just to get you started.

Lightning launcher is amazing. When I first came across it I was completely lost. Once you get the hang of it...I haven't used another launcher since. Plus the developer is constantly updating it. Great app well worth the money guys
