oh wow, just installed the free nova launcher and i like it! More screen space and default jelly bean icons = ). Importunately the only think i liked from samsung was the accuweather widget and Samsung calender widget. they are no longer showing in the widget add screen. any idea why this is?
I figured you would
They're not compatible with Nova I guess, but you could try Apex launcher or other launchers. You may also be able to find exact replica versions of Samsung's widgets in the playstore or you could look at alternatives like beautiful widgets, etc.
Edit: In case you were curious, paid Nova launcher will not work with those two widgets either. I own it and figured you might have wanted to know.
