    I was getting serious lag problems using Apex. Thought it was due to using Smart Actions. Stopped Smart Actions, lag continued. Tried Nova, lag continued. Went back to ADW and the lag seems to have stopped, even with using Smart Actions. Would love to go back to Go Launcher EX but that seemed to suck my battery dry on GB. Maybe it won't with ICS and Smart Actions. Anyone else have battery issues on Go Launcher Ex?

    I have been using Go Launcher EX since ICS update and no battery issues at all. The only problem I have is with Go contacts/dialer, it doesn't work. Automatically goes to stock dialer, and I can't get it to work.

    I use Apex, I use the "Keep In Memory" option but I still get redraws. No stability issues.

    Might have to check out Nova.

    Does anyone use a launcher like Apex, Nova, etc? On the Sprint S5 I had been using, it showed unread email number right on the shortcut. My Verizon phone is not doing that.
    I'm just curious who is using what, and why. I am not rooted and am not sure why I would want to be on this phone, as I have only had the need to disable apps in the past.

    I use Nova with the unread plug in. It adds counts to text, Facebook, Gmail, hangouts and more. I believe you need nova prime to use it though.

    I did Nova and I liked it. Just uninstalled it though because my memory usage was constantly hovering around 1.4 out of 1.67. Removed Facebook as well.

    Yeah Nova drains battery and using a ton of RAM. I liked it but uninstalled for that reason. After uninstalling nova my better life basically doubled.

    I like next launcher. Pricey, but you can try the free version. I paid for it & don't regret it, even though I'm not currently using it. Will likely install it on the note 4 when I get it though.

    I've been using Apex for the past few years. Still on TW on my S5 ATM, but my SO is running Apex on her rooted S5 with no problems. She was previously on Nova but had issues as well.

    tap'n on my S5
