Met, then exceeded expectations. I have used stock Android launchers on various phones as well as Google Now and a couple of others from the Play Store. They all have their strengths. They all lured me away from iOS. I enjoyed all of them on some level. Apex Launcher Pro runs quickly and smoothly. It is full featured and flexible. It lets you be a power user, or a casual user - or somewhere in between. It's easy and useful. The BEST fit I've ever had.
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.
Love it! Don't ever change the status bar shadow, it's perfect! I switched from Nova Pro to Apex Pro simply because the shadow isn't dark enough on Nova. Apex well worth the money. I did drop a star because the keep in memory option puts a banner notification. Understandable, but my phone is rooted and the app should the advantage of that.
