    I'm not sure I understand. Are you tired of go launcher? Or tired of the available themes?

    If you are looking for a different launcher - check out Apex or Nova...both are good options :)...

    Go launcher slowed down both my razr and the s3...It used quite a bit of ram. Especially when you add the widgets and weather add ons... I have the best luck with Nova... I bought the premium when it was on sale for. 25c....its may favorite launcher since launcher pro premium back on my old droid x:D

    I purchased it at the same time :) There are a couple apps that won't work using Nova, but that can be overlooked. I like being able to have 5 (or more) rows of apps on my screens

    You should still be able to use widgets by long pressing on home screen.

    Jaye, try Nova. Apex and nova are almost identical. I chose Nova because I prefer having folders for combining apps in my app drawer rather than the tabs at the top like apex had. Nova also knew enough to make the names of widgets readable, which the last I tried apex, they hadn't fixed that. In Nova you can long press to get your list of widgets.

    Yes, to hide apps, when you're in the app drawer, press and hold the app you want to hide and drag it to the upper right corner where it says “group" and there will be a check box list. Top one is hidden apps. Check that one. (This is also the same place you can create folders to organize your apps).
