    Since my phone is a work phone, I am very hesitant to root, but I really like using launchers. I don't particularly like the app layout on this phone. I should be able to change the layout to 5 or 6 apps across, not just 4. Does anyone know if this is possible with stock touchwiz on the N3?

    If it's not possible, I could use a launcher, but I suspect it kills the s pen functions and the multi-window. Is there a launcher out there that keeps some or all those functions?

    All 3rd party launchers still allow the use of the S Pen and Multi-Window feature...Apex, Nova, Go Launcher are all good choices to start with...

    A launcher will not kill your s pen Features. I'm using Nova launcher and still have all my features.

    Another vote for Nova. It didn't hurt my s pen or multi window a bit.

    Awesome. Thanks for all the great replies. Still considering between this and the G2. Touchwiz was a big negative for me, so it's good to know I can mostly bypass it.

    I have been a Nova Prime user since I got my S4, loaded it right away on the Note 3. The UI of Touchwiz looks too cartoonie. Nova is great, plus I really like the Stark and Vintage Icon packs from the Play Store.

    Honestly pretty much all of the launchers are great. They are what make Android, Android in my opinion.

    I use TSF Shell. Nothing like it. The sky is the limit. I'm curious to see what it would be like on the Note 3...

    I also use Nova which I love but I do have one complaint. I really wish I could get the stock weather widget to work with it.

    Even though I posted that I didn't have a problem with Touch wiz on a different post, I did switch to Go which I had used on my last device. All functions are still available.
