Are you using Touch-Wiz or something else?

    Go Launcher has been my, pardon the pun, go-to home replacement since I got my Droid X. I've had the S3 for the weekend now and I'm not sure whether it's worth the pain of setting up the screens again to try an alternative. One of my friends who's a VZW rep and developer on the side told me that he's using Nova since that's what many of the custom ROMs are using. At least I think that's what he said. He gets excited and then I lose him.

    So, are you using stock Touch Wiz or something else? If something else, can you tell my the benefits?

    Thanks!

    I'm using touchwiz right now. I tried Nova, and liked some features of it, and disliked some. Seemed like kind of a resource/RAM hog though.

    I had TW on for a day, then tried Go for a day, now I'm on ADW. I'll probably check out Nova. Any other newer ones worth looking at?

    I've been using TW for the last 5 days and switched to APEX today. With APEX my S3 feels more like my GNEX did.

    Go Launcher. I've used it since early in my DX days and love it. TW doesn't work for me b/c I need multiple docks. I know there are others with multiple docks like Nova but I haven't gotten around to trying them.

    On my DX I used launcher pro, then adw ex. Adw was such a memory hog. It would always redraw and make games like temple run lag. The last couple months I went back to stock and had much better performance. Because of this, I am staying away from 3rd party launchers and am running stock touchwiz on my SGS 3 and so far there are no complaints.

    Go Launcher for me. No problems so far. Everything has been silky smooth.

    Nova for me. No issues at all. Touchwiz better than motoblur but just trying something different

    Apex here. I used LauncherPro on my Thunderbolt and Apex seems to have everything LP had minus the widgets... And minus the redraws!

    Tried stock for a few days but missed some of the features I was used to using in Launcher Pro on my OG Droid (scrollable dock, message counts, swipe actions, etc). Tried Apex and liked it so I bought the pro version earlier tonight.

    TouchWiz, like any skin the OEM puts on their phone, sucks.

    I've been using Nova Launcher now for a little while and I don't see a change in performance, CPU usage, or battery. I do like having 5 rows instead of 4 and having a landscape screen when I turn my phone horizontally. For me, that's really the only difference and reason I prefer Nova.

    I have been running TW... while I have also installed APEX and began setting it up... takes some time to get things where I like them... I have used LP and GO, so I hope Apex is just as good or even better. I went with Apex based on findings from looking around all types of forums on different launchers. I need the scrolling Dock haha

    I've been using touchwiz and really liking it so far. I'm coming from a thunderbolt and hated sense.
