(oneplus one, cm13) the strongest feature of this app by far is the app drawer, no other launcher seems to offer as much manual organisation. drawer folders have transparency issues though, which is annoying. secondly the range of gestures is brilliant, and makes using a 5.5" screen one handed a breeze. a weak point is the notification badges; compared to nova it lacks a lot of support for commonly used apps. I'd love to see a drawer option to blur the background picture so all the icons are clearer
Best Replacement Launcher Ever! Apex Launcher was created for me! It feels that way at least. Tried all of them for at least a week, but in the end I made the uber rare purchase of this app. Friendly UI. Practically limitless customization. Not very power hungry. Very stable. Tons of additional content in themes, icons, etc. If your all about making your phone yours, with no head scratching, convoluted, technical routines, then you'll probably be better off here, with Apex.
Good but a few issues: Trying to drop an icon onto an icon group is like playing a video game. The target group runs away form you. You have to be fast. Even worse, the whole row or column may shift. Also, trying to remove an icon from an icon group leads to another video game - a little menu pops up but you can't use it - you have to fuss around until the main X at the top of the screen is visible, and drop it there. There needs to be a substantial delay after you stop moving your finger before this happens. Also, it should be really easy to get to Apex settings - just a long press should have it at the top of the resulting menu.
Where are the drawers? Up until yesterday everything was fine, but now my pro version launcher no longer has drawers and nowhere to manage them. That was a bummer too as I had everything organised but it's all just vanished for no reason! Please fix this error developers!
Severely Broken Before upgrading to Android 5.1.1 Apex had started randomly crashing on my Galaxy Note 4. The device was slowed down to a freeze at times. Had to remove it from my Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro tablet due to awful responsiveness issues. With the 5.1.1 update to Android rolled out to my device, suddenly none of the folder contents are visible, but they are clickable. Please fix these issues.
Serious bug in battery saver mode When I turn on Lollipop's battery saver, all the icons in folders and the app drawer disappear. I'm really frustrated this hasn't been fixed yet, I've had the problem for months.
