Since the last update im giving Apex another chance since in the early times it was my favorite launcher. It feels snappy, uses low memory and has lots of customization (even though still not as much as Nova). Setting custom icon for folders and keeping apps in custom drawer tabs while also being in a folder would be nice. Plus the possibility to have apps in multiple folders. For now I'd rate it 4.5*.
I have to give this launcher a 5. I've been using it on my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for three years now, and all I can say is that thanks to this launcher I've achieved great simplicity and very easy use, quick and smooth, with a nice appearance, making my experience with the phone much better, with a clarity I don't find in many people's phones, thanks to this launcher. If you like simplicity and efficacy, enhancing your daily use of your phone, I highly recommend that at least you try this one for a while, it's worth it, it really changes the outlook and the functionality, making it better. In days I will get a new phone, and I will install Apex Launcher and maybe keep the same theme or look for a similarly simple and nice one. If I have some issue with the new phone, I will send you feedback. I rarely comment on apps I use, but this one has been so central and important for my phone that I thought I should show some gratitude. Update: Using it for already a week in my new Xiaomi Mi Max 2. It works as great as always, flawlessly.
The launcher itself is great and easy to use. It has a variety of tools that are useful such as a soft lock button and ability to hide apps. However, the software made my phone's power button not work intermittently. It was not too frequent at first but got progressively worse. I thought it was my phone at first but after uninstalling Apex Launcher the problem went away completely.
Good launcher with reasonable customization. Would be 4-5* if they can fix the "app not installed" error. Every now and then clicking on an app on the homescreen will result that error and the icon has to be replaced. Re: all apps are installed on the internal device storage. (no SD slot anyway)
Great! Except 1 thing devs pls fix..... I installed an app after getting thid launcher and it did not shoe up. The only way to launch it was to go through the Play store. It fixed itself after I restarted the phone but just something to fix in the next update.
I'm editing my review and giving it 5 stars, am using it on my Google Pixel XL and it is great! The launcher is not a memory hog and it has a lot options to customize. The only criticism (and this is not a deal breaker) is there is no ability to automatically alphabetize icons that are in folders, the way Nova does it.
