Question about Samsung Cell Phones

1 Answer

Is there a manual for using the Nova Launcher app with Android 5.0 or do you recommend any other launchers and do they have instructions on a Samsung Galaxy S4?

When I started reading about lollipop, everyone had problems with TouchWiz and almost all recommended Nova Launcher, so I installed it. When I went to the settings for Nova Launcher, there were drawers, scrolling and swiping options, security and color tools in multiple's very easy to get confused, but I believe there are many more features I just haven't found or don't know about. I'm looking for one place I can go that will tell me the best launcher and apps to have on my device for ease-of-use, look-and-feel, and most all, performance. Any and all help will be appreciated.

Just leave everything by default for now. When you need to adjust anything you'd like just google for Nova + required settings. Or save your defaults and then play around: within backup you can always restore from where you've started

    Launcher is missing

    Launcher is Missing is it a luncher app you downloaded from the playstore or is it the default launcher of your phone because if its just an app that you downloaded from the playstore its missing because a factory reset will erase all your data and apps

    If its the dufault launcher is your phone rooted?
    Did you perhaps uninstall the default launcher using a root tool like link to SD?

    If you have uninstalled your default launcher then you would have to flash a stock rom from your phone's manufacturer or download a custom rom from the internet

    How to remove touchwiz home on note 4

    I don't think you can do that because it is the Samsung built-in/default launcher and it comes pre-loaded with your tablet. If you don't like it (I assume that's why you would want to get rid of it), install other app launchers, such as Apex Launcher, Nova Launcher, etc. from the Play Store and use any of those as your app launcher.

    Samsung android Launcher keeps closing so how do I fix it

    In settings, go to backup and reset. There is an option in there to reset your phone WithOut loosing your data and files. It does a refresh of the system files without getting rid of your data. Some options will also keep installed apps. Please read through the options and start w/ the least destructive reset.
    You can also try installing a different launcher. I recommend Nova launcher. There is a free version to try it out and a full version that will give you more useful items.
    Good luck

    To make it easier, download any launcher from PlayStore and use it as your main launcher. I use Nova, but Apex should work fine, you will get the app drawer back.

    How to install a themes?

    I guess you want to change the way it looks, then I recommend that you download a launcher. Make sure that it's compatible because your model usually run Froyo (2.2). Head to PlayStore and search for these launchers:
    1. Nova
    2. Solo
    3. Holo
    5. Action
    6. Espier
    These are only some of them.
