    Is it just me or is the updated BB Launcher ridiculously slow? I keep getting the screen that asks if I want to wait or close. Thanks for any commiseration (or possible solutions).

    I do love my priv, though they make it tough at times.

    Try doing a are second reboot. Hold down the power button until the phone vibrates. Ignore the pop up window with choices. Your phone will vibrate and reboot. It does the same thing as the old battery pulls used to do. See if that helps things.

    Also you might clear your cache. Settings>storage & usb>internal storage. Let the data calculate. Then tap "cached data" and when the pop up comes, tap okay.

    You're right OP. It is also slow for me. I first got Nova launcher as my main launcher. It was also sweet but not fast and smooth enough. Then I switch to Arrow launcher and absolutely love it. The phone runs so much smoother.

    Stock launcher works super smooth and fast. No issues.

    I am not a BL fan. I have found Nova Launcher Premier is well worth the small investment. Lots of gesture options and it is very fast and smooth. Highly recommend it if you want customization of your interface.

    Pretty much down to HUB, Keyboard.... At this point I wouldn't pay for just the HUB (keyboard is not part of the subscription).

    I tried the new BlackBerry Launcher and I found it really was slower. Used it for 24 hours, so I went back to Nova.
