The only thing I miss from Jelly Bean is the SIII TouchWiz launcher. Anybody know how to get that working on a Jelly Bean 4.1 installation?

I feel bad to admit but I prefere tw5 over apex or nova. The folder option is too useful for me in tw5. Tw5 is not perfect also, i wish it had number indicator for new sms in Messages icon.

You could always install a launcher similar to TouchWiz but you would never get a full TouchWiz until someone develops something like a ROM for the Galaxy Nexus similar to the Nature UX TouchWiz from the S3

It's funny how you would want TouchWiz since people get the Galaxy Nexus for the pure stock google and for fast updates xD Not to have custom interfaces like sense and touchwiz. And if you get bored with the stock interface you could always get a new launcher/ROM

Touchwiz is by far the ugliest UI ever.
Sense is the most bloated and heavy UI.
MIUI makes one feel retarded, much like owning an iDevice.
Motoblur is just after Touchwiz in ugliness.

Stock android is the way to go. Otherwise, buy a device with the respective UI preinstalled.

The thing I really miss is the Acuweather widget for the home screen. I like Jelly Bean for everything else. I really like having the simple clock and the customized weather backdrop.

The SIII Accuweather widget is my favorite, and part of the charm of the Galaxy Nexus is the ability to choose what you like to put on it. I like a combination of the buttery smoothness of Jelly Bean with the SIII Accuweather widget.

I can't blame anyone wanting an OEM launcher.

Although the Nexus is designed for stock experience, it's also the best phone for variety, I'd rather have choices than none at all.
