Lost gesture functionality in GS6. These phones are big. One of the best features apex has had was the swipe down feature, which I could assign to bringing down the notification shade. Worked wonderfully on my older One M7, but the shade just will not come down on the Galaxy S6. This is a pretty big deal for me. I need to be able to use my phone one-handed, without having to shimmy and shuffle my hand up the phone while holding onto it. This is a big step in the wrong direction.
Best launcher Tried a few others including next and go. They have nothing on this. The user has full control over the custom settings. Awesome settings, cool effects, and doesn't lag the system like the others do. One complaint: sometimes, when I open an icon folder, all the icons will be missing so I close it and reopen and they return. Might want to check into that. ( full version user here ) DEFINITELY worth buying. So I did... 😀
Incredibly Powerful but Getting Worse This app gets the job done and does an amazing job of customizing my phone. I absolutely love it. My one feature request would be to add the Lollipop overscroll effect for the home screen. App has barely been updated in the past year. No Marshmallow update or bug fixes (folders appear completely blank on Power Saving mode).
I am digging APEX (on Galaxy S4) After years of ADW Ex, I just recently decided to change to a modern launcher that stays updated and has many cool options! Two of my favs are the ability to import from other launchers and the endles amount of themes. Two things that are missing in my opinion; 1. The ability to lock apps with a pin code (to keep pics, videos, and other sensitve files safe), 2. More app drawer options, like Verticle 4D. But this is the one! 5 stars if I ever see "pin #" implemented!
Good but with bugs I've been using this app for a few months now. I really like it but there are issues with the notification settings. It works ok for a day or so but then I no longer see the no. of missed calls or unread messages/emails. I have to restart the phone to make it work again. And this feature is the only reason why I installed the Pro version. I like this launcher very much but hope they fix this bug.
Its almost the same as KK Launcher, 99% similarities, except Apex Launcher does not have "turn off screen" option on the "home button".. i wish you can consider to include, as its very useful.. overall, its a very good and productive launcher alternative.. I think the developer has abandoned this apps since no visible update have been done to date..
