A bit different, but I use Action Launcher on KitKat and my Lawd it's a different kind of experience. Access widgets by swyping over icons, access app menu and widgets, recents, switches etc. by swyping lefr or right in any app, it's simplifies things and minimizes steps.

+1. The shutter and cover functionality is very useful. After the update the apps menu and quickdrawer can open apps from within the apps.
Best android launcher IMO

+1 your plus one. I have tons of widgets all on my homescreen without taking up space using shutters. Best. Launcher. Ever.
I just figured out how covers work and it's genius. Great job Lacy.

It's been a while since I used Action Launcher. Ever since I bricked my phone, I am too lazy to reinstall it

Doesn't look much different from my current JB. Well there are some minimal changes but not many. The Holo theme still rocks. Just saw the gray/white icons of KitKat on my friend's nexus. They look dead.
Well I must say this is a matter of personal preference but I'd have liked the holo theme.

I am using Nova launcher, and I tried Apex but Nova appealed to me just a bit more.

When you guys talk about customization, feel a little sympathy for those of us who are fans of Nokia. We had it with Symbian and now its gone :'(

I really don't like the kitkat layout. I like having multiple home screens and multiple Widgets. I think the swiping right to open up Google now is stupid and if you swipe left it does nothing. I have a galaxy S4 and I hope it never gets kitkat. If it does, thank god for nova launcher...

You can have multiple screens I have 4 screens on mine you just have to hold a widget down and slide to the left of screen and a new screen will popup to put your widget there and more apps it's nice

FIRST, you won't get the Google Experince Launcher with a Samsung update. SECOND, as said above me, you can have multiple homescreens and THIRD, with Android you have the ability to revert updates or to ignore them.
