    I love Lightning Launcher. Does exactly what I want for a minimalist look on the home screen. Buttery smooth and fast. Play store.

I still happen believe that Nova is certainly the fastest, however even with the backup issue with Apex, they are still the best and cleanest for what is out there.
    Ugh, I wish I had known that. The backup option says its saving to SD, guess I shouldn't have believed it. :P

    Will this be this case with all launcher backups, I wonder?

    Will check out vire and lightning. I looked at nova b4 but didn't like it compared to apex, can't remember why.

    Thanks!

    keep in mind Vire isn't DD material. I'm giving up quite a bit of basic functionality to have a "pretty" launcher in Vire. Also it tends to suck up ram after a while, and my battery life has dropped. Battery life isn't a huge deal on the MAXX, but I went from 3+ days of regular use to 2 days max.

    Yeah the metal clock is cool, as is the screen switching, but that's about it. I'm leaning towards lightning - super fast! Jaseman - did you buy the SD backup plugin for LL? if so, does it work?

    No I did not buy the backup. I do not have anything worth backing up on my phone. I use Drop Box to copy/move things I want to keep so that I can retrieve them if and when I need them. I also have Drop Box on my laptop so basically I have everything I need in at least three places.

    it took me 2 weeks of using this launcher to realize that you could pull down a drawer from the clock and put shortcuts/widgets there

    The config file is the big thing, not media/files - gestures, icon settings, etc - I'm trying to avoid setting it up all over again if I need to FDR in the future...cause I'm picky

    Thumbs up i have to agree by far nova with ics or jb

    It use to be that launcher pro with pro plus was by far the best , easiest to use and had the most simplicity to customize and no weird meit made a simple full rotation ,i like cube mode for desktop and vertical for the app drawer and it had 1 to 3 dock pages u only need 1 but it was nice as an option . Now with the updates that's all old so is adw i have adw ex and its bad enough you have to open the menu then go to preferances but to have to do it again in adw that's just stupid so i tried Nova when chevycamy1994 made a droid 3 rom with ics running 4.0.4 stable and perfect and loved it ,very fluid and the same simplicity as launcher pro plus and free the paid version just has to much pinch this and that bla bla get the free edition run a cube or card stack mode on desktop you can have 1 , thru 7 pages what ever you want and size the screen to fit more apps make vertical have 7 rows and landscape have 6 it will look funny but hay you wanted 1 page the best bet is 5x4 that is what comes stock so that's 20 icons or widgets per page . the keys are is free , simple , looks great ,is almost the same as apex but better and easier and very fluid /smooth thru page transitions and in the app drawer especially vertical which looks way better i don't know who wants to flip pages to see what apps they have when you can just do 1 swipe of your finger and see everything on 1 page
    WELL HOPE THAT HELPS

    I'm on OTA rooted 4.1.2, using nova free with 2 pages with google now widget on first page to have weather and calendar widget on second to quickly look up my and my wife's schedule. I have the circles widget and its service disabled (the service stays active even when you switch launchers.) It's much faster now than with the stock launcher and much more stable as well. I haven't had any lockups (knock on wood) and camera performance seems better (faster to focus, better results.)

    I also had issues with swype keyboard being slow to show up (swype beta with two languages) but switched to swiftkey flow and haven't had any issues since.

    Im using Atom and I'm liking it...used to use GO as well but the lag started to get annoying...Atom is good because it has features and customization but is also quick and responsive.
