    Though I'm content with Nova, I like that they're trying to do something different with a launcher, but not so different that it's mind-boggling to try and use/get used to.

    Looking forward to see if anyone else gives it a try and leaves some opinions here.

    I've been using Lucid Launcher Pro for many many months now. It's lightweight, extremely functional with no bugs (that I've encountered) and the developer is extremely quick to respond to questions/suggestions/etc. I haven't had a need to try any other launcher since I started using that one.

    Let us know what you think @wicked. I suppose I could give it a try too, seeing as I don't actually use many of the extra customization/etc that Nova offers...

    Great review, stg! I used lucid a long time ago. I think I was introduced to it by joshxdroid when I had my razrM. Things got so crazy that I haven't taken the time to set up my launcher with anything but touch wiz (very boring). Thanks, you've inspired me to set up my lucid & start customizing again.

    After getting wowed for a few moments, as always, by your gorgeous fingernails I was brought back to reality when you said "Nova replacement".
    At that point I noticed nothing was mentioned about docks. Is theirs the side bar favorites feature instead of actual docks? Docks are more important to me than home screens because I use docks instead of home pages for widget and app icon placement. The latest version of Nova kills long press the menu button for phone settings, which is a deal breaker for me after years of tolerating the arrogance of the developer so I'm looking for another launcher. I really like the vertical scroll for home pages feature
    What features are unlocked with the paid version? Anything dynamite or just pretty bell and whistle ability?
    Thanks for the review
