This is a nice launcher with a lot of features but, for me, on my S22 Ultra (unlocked) I am unable to create backups. This is a show-stopper for me as I like create a configuration and then use it on different devices. I am receiving an "This action cannot be performed." error when trying to create a backup. If this can be quickly resolved I'd happily pay for the Pro version.

I've been using this launcher since I switched to android in 2014. I think I briefly tried Nova but preferred Apex. It works great, and I have no major complaints. The inability to customize icons within the app drawer the way you can on the home screen is frustrating, though. I also wish you could pick a single icon to represent a folder, or pin certain apps to the top of the drawer other than the default most used. Also, I swear I have never seen an ad. Not sure what that's about... Great tho

One of the best if not THE BEST Launchers that I've tried out and I've tried out A LOT! Apex takes the cake easily in my opinion. It's highly customizable, smooth running,, and fast with so many settings and tweaks you're able to customize your Android the way you like but The number 1 reason I love Apex Launcher is that it does not give your phone a crazy, maddening lag like alot of other launchers on the market. The only thing that is missing is the ability to create a backup and save it.
