Review from Ted Hoffman
Buy the Nova launcher. Just as good. Same price. Better value.I have been a fan of non original launchers for quite a while. I was pleasantly surprised by the many features of the Apex launcher which I really enjoyed. I usually use Nova launcher pro but due to stabilty issues with my Huawei P9 lite ( already resolved) I figured I would try the Apex Launcher. I enjoyed it so much I bought the Prime version for 3.99....BIG MISTAKE. With the Nova Launcher you buy it once and own it. If you get a new device you can download it again for free. Not the case with Apex. Even worse I did a reset on my phone and couldn't even download Apex on the device I actually purchased Prime from and for originally.... I would definitely highly recommend Nova over the Apex Launcher as obviously they stand by they're product as well as they're customers. Even windows allows users to reinstall they're products after providing a unique key. And we all know how picky they are.

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.
It could be four or five. Everything is great and easy to customize. One feature I don't see I don't know if it was overlooked this whole time or I'm blind to.enable whats already there? There is no search option while in the apps drawer to quickly find an app
