Why another launcher?
This is an launcher project I started from scratch and with a little help of some library because I want to create an unique Android experience for myself, now I share with you.

I got a message saying the app had crashed, with RIP and a nice graphic. I was unable to uninstall the app and had to download a different launcher (Nova Launcher) which I actually prefer. OpenLauncher also had an issue where it would not be able to display icons on the home screen properly. They'd become cropped on the top and bottom, and the only way to get them back to normal was to lock and then unlock the home screen. I also noticed the digital clock widget kept disappearing.

I like this launcher and look forward to seeing it developed further. Improvements I would like to see include being able to assign individual icons to individual apps (and not just applying an entire icon pack, as it is now), and having the home button close menus and drop to desktop rather than have them stay open.

One of the best launchers for my uses though it really, really needs work. Especially configuring the menu is very painful since the launcher likes to just say "Not enough space" and make the widget snap back. Also the widgets overlay which might be a good thing for some people but I'd prefer to make it optional only.
