I am going to agree with others about this launcher. It really is the best of its kind! And I make it a point to test out a lot of different customization apps often. But I am also unable to uninstall applications with the long press. When I click on uninstall, nothing happens so I have to go into my settings to delete apps. I also agree with another reviewer that custom icon packs are very needed (would also pay to upgrade if this was added). It's a great launcher otherwise!

Thanks for letting us make unlimited groups! This app really is awesome. I do wish I could hide apps, and re-arrange the apps myself (like drag them around like how you can do to the dock). Its still great without these features though! I like taking my phones wallpaper and putting it through an app that blurs the picture then I use this as the launcher and it makes it look like I have a blurred background which is super cool.

Nothing exceptional. It just puts all apps on the main screen and you organise it into folders in a long-winded way. You can't name the folder when you begin, and have to do it later. No drag-n-drop, drag-n-reorder, multiple selections. Minimal control over anything. The slogan for this launcher should be, 'get this if you want something worse than your original launcher'. Those who like it, well, they aren't very.....
