Nova Launcher has some very capable hands behind it --Phandroid
Our favorite is Nova Launcher, which strikes a great perfect balance between incredible performance and high customizability without getting too gimmicky and difficult to use --Lifehacker
Chock full of features you won't find in the stock launcher, and comes highly recommended --Android Central

Finest kind!

I've done it .... Go LAUNCHER EX is definitely 'ex' now !!!! And so far so good, liking the clean looks and here's hoping it doesn't follow others, but leads the way to something bigger and better. Have used this Developers' apps before and they have always been quality, this looks like it will be along the same lines..... Mega happy for now :)PS One question, I removed google search bar from home screen, when i turn to landscape it re-appears ... not major problem, just wish it didn't !!
