Updated Nova Launcher now in Beta.....read on

When you’re getting bored by your phone, or at least by how it looks, installing third-party launchers – instead of going to a phone relationship counselor – is a more practical solution to bring the love back. One popular option to consider is the Nova Launcher, which has just been updated by TeslaCoil Software to accommodate some Jelly Bean goodness.

The Jelly Bean-based version of Nova Launcher is now available as a public beta. If you’re wondering why it’s worth the shout out, it’s because the older version was based on the almost ancient (I kid) Ice Cream Sandwich. Here’s the full change log:

Merge jellybean launcher
Automatic desktop rearrangement
Automatic widget resize
Fling to delete
Smoother
Import settings from other launchers (Stock, Samsung, HTC, Moto, Trebuchet, Apex)
Custom Drawer grid size
Add Info/Uninstall to quick menu, better centering and scrolling
Update JB Icon Theme for Moto ICS
Fix FCs
You need to have Nova Launcher 1.2.2 installed (and run ICS) before you can download the beta. Once it’s installed, click “Nova Launcher 1.2.2 (check for updates)”, setting , Beta, and then hit the Update button. As is the case with all things beta, expect to see minor bumps and imperfections here and there.

Will you stick with version 1.2.2 of Nova Launcher or make the jump to beta?

Click the update, then click the three small boxes to the right top. Then click beta.

yup, that's all in the OP....I was just telling Kflan if he's unsure he did it right he can test it with the above method.

Also.. I found a messaging app in the market used in jb. A person ported over for ics and it includes the SMS widget used in jb. He also made a nice jb launcher port too but its stock, no extras.
