Bootup prompting for what launcher to use??
Saturday 04th of May 2013
Forgive me if it is supposed to do this! When I reboot and unlock the screen I get prompted to select either Easy Launcher or Touchwiz home. I click touchwiz home then click always but it does not default when I reboot....it prompts all over again. Is this normal? Thanks in advance!

Polaroid Tiles for Your Launcher 7 or Desktop VisualizR
Monday 11th of July 2011
The say there is a fine line between genius and insanity. They also say that insanity is defined by repeating the same action expecting different results. I can definitely agree that siravarice doesn’t fall into the insane category. At least not in the traditional sense, but I don’t know the guy personally. What I do know is what he has created and shared stands out beyond the norm.Often times icons for your standard launcher are just reworked version of what already exists….Continue Reading HerePolaroid Tiles for Your Launcher 7 or Desktop VisualizRStormy Beach – androidspin.com
Are you using Touch-Wiz or something else?
Sunday 15th of July 2012
Go Launcher has been my, pardon the pun, go-to home replacement since I got my Droid X. I've had the S3 for the weekend now and I'm not sure whether it's worth the pain of setting up the screens again to try an alternative. One of my friends who's a VZW rep and developer on the side told me that he's using Nova since that's what many of the custom ROMs are using. At least I think that's what he said. He gets excited and then I lose him.So, are you using stock Touch Wiz or something else? If something else, can you tell my the benefits?Thanks!

Thursday 16th of May 2013
I whenever I hit the home button I now asked to choose east launcher or touch wiz then it asks just once or always. Is this a hug in the system?? It never asked that before.
my kids are asking for an iPod touch, but I want android...
Tuesday 27th of November 2012
my kids are asking for an ipod touch (a friend has one). I don't like Apple and prefer android for reasons I won't get into here... Overwhelmed with all the devices out there, I really didn't know what an ipod touch is. I did a little research and it really looks like it's a smart phone without the phone.... or a tiny tablet.so instead i was looking at small android tablets, which I'm sure would make them happy. but it seems like the smallest tablets are 7" screens and that seems a bit more bulky than they really need.i'm kinda thinking now, why don't I get an android phone and just skip the phone contract? they could still do wifi, get apps, and everything an ipod touch does, and probably more. i currently have an LG optimus. I think if I gave them something similar to this, with no phone contract, and a nice sdhc card they'd be stoked.I paid $150 for my optimus but now I see them on amazon for around $100. it's a prepaid device with no contract. I would think you could buy one and just never activate the contract and everything would work except making phone calls and 3G, righ
Getting Rid of Touch WIz, Mobile ID and or Virgin Mobile's Essentials
Friday 11th of October 2013
Out of frustration in dealing with my Galaxy ll update of Jelly Bean with it's menu of annoyances, specifically the mobile ID, the Virgin Mobile Essentials, and the Samsung touch wiz. I blundered on an unintentional fix for all three, a couple of nights ago. I cannot claim any special wisdom or knowledge about android phones. Just what anyone else would pick up here on android central or other possible places when they've got a problem. In any case this is the sequence of events.....if'n anyone is intrested. Tired of having phone issues with the essentials and mobile Id package that came with the upgrade and then doing a fresh original manufactures install to clean them out, while still keeping the JellyBean update I previously received, I was initially thrilled. However, immediately upon my first reboot the crap came back with a vengence wanting me to install them even before my phone was finished loading the other programs. It stuck me odd they were in such a serious huffy to get this stuff loaded. So I just ignored the screen all to gether and hit the home icon down below, when th
Any way to disable Easy Launcher?
Thursday 14th of November 2013
Stock phone, not rooted, when I press my home button it'll sometimes as if I want Easy launcher or touchwiz. I select TW and select always every time so I'm not sure why it will randomly ask that. Any ideas? Sent from my SGH-M919 using AC Forums mobile app

Why Is There So Much Hate For Touch-Wiz?
Wednesday 11th of March 2015
I had a Sprint GN2 and now have the Sprint GN4. Thus I have always had Touch-Wiz and it's what I am used to. Coming from such a perspective, I have nothing to compare to Touch-Wiz so I don't mind it. Why so much hate? Is it the bloatware only? I, likewise, hate the Samsung Apps, Sprint Apps and anything that cannot be deleted to free up space so if that is the biggest issue 'I feel ya'. Also, I just learned that the GN2 (Menu and Back) and GN4 (Recent and Back) keys are swapped compared to other devices but what are some specific issues that are hated? Additionally, please suggest your favorite FREE launcher that you feel gives the best experience that will run on a GN4 (lollipop) so that I can compare it in order that I can truly see the difference between that launcher and Touch-Wiz . Now, I am willing to pay for a truly superior launcher but it can only be justified if Touch-Wiz can truly be so deficient that almost ANY other launcher is superior. I know that there must be some real issues but I also wholeheartedly feel that there are a ton of people just riding the hate-Touch-Wi
