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*.
Very nice lovely launcher. Many customize settings in this launcher. So im customized my phone's launcher. So iam like very much. Different Android versions - home screen, drawer, dock settings, apps icons, drawer menu. In this good and smooth. Support different themes in Google play store. Iam now using Redmi4. Sometimes downloaded apps icons is not viewed in home screen and drawer apps list. But, system Settings > Installed apps list in this icons here. Iam open system launcher, downloaded apps icons here. Iam restart the apex launcher in apex settings. This problem is clear. Fix it normally.
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)
It keeps zooming in on my wallpaper. So annoying. I'll set my picture and everything will look nice and presentable. But after a couple hours, it will blow the picture up to 2 or 3 times its size, making my wallpaper a potato-quality blur of pixels. Happens consistently.
Updates: Reinstalled this and the notifier add ons which only allow very limited app being able to be notified of unread counts. Please learn from nova launcher and it's unlimited app unread notification counts. Previous review: I came back to see the progress of this paid app I owned but upset because it was abandoned since 2015.
