Time to move on It's with mixed feelings that I have decided to move on from using this app. In concept, I loved it. It did exactly what I needed and was customizable enough that I could launch with esse but still keep the visual style I prefer. And I never particularly noticed any battery drain the way some have. However, it's nearly a year since the last update, and I'm finding that more and more frequently icons are reverting to generic ones. Of course this defeats the purpose of the launcher. But we had a good run.
Unresolved issues Not going to purchase due to bad reviews and no developer response. Show lack of concern. Their seems to be little customization of this app as well as continued ads after upgrading. In addition some concerns over performance of some of the functions of this app. To bad because this app seems to have a lot of potential. I'll see if I can find another.
I was hoping others were wrong about the battery drain, but they are not. I installed this app this afternoon and have barely used it at all and already after 4 hours it's become the #4 battery drainer. The developer's need to figure out a way to make it lighter and not use so much battery when in the background. Too bad because functionality-wise this app is brilliant, but with such horrible battery drain, unusable!
Doesn't open most times Used to really love this launcher, but over the last month, gesture will not open it more than half the time. Needed to put the app on my home row to launch it now which sort of defeats the purpose. Needs a serious update soon to fix this glitch.
Strange reviews Been using this app for over a year now and more than happy to pay for full version. Have experienced the issue of when an app updates sometimes the icon reverts to android default but no biggy just add it gain takes seconds. The only thing I would ask developers is the bottom bar with the sales cart and present ought to be hideable in full version just doesn't look good. As for this a fantastic app that gets the job done well. Oh and as for boat browser by the same company my default browser, very good app
Great app but now has issues. Unfortunately on cm13 (g900fd) when in landscape the sidebar will not close, it's always open. This is a deal breaker for me. I have stopped using sidebar launcher and I'm now using a different app purely due to this issue. Will be interesting to monitor battery life now having read the other reviews.
v3.4.3 what's new:
1. Fix volume up/down bug.
2. Bugs fix.
