Have been using Nova for 2 years which is great, but thought it was time for a change. Was pleasantly suprised with Microsoft Launcher. The only thing is, the recent apps in the search function does not show customised icons.
I like the app, but performance is just not good enough yet for me to use the launcher. An example is swiping up from the appdrawer button to access quick apps and quick settings, this is just laggy. The app is also very overwhelming. It gives me the impression of having to sit down for a few hours and needing to check out the features, before I can set it up the way I want it. There is some interesting functionality in there though, such as the feed to the right of the homescreen, and the way it's set up. Promising launcher, but not quite there yet.
Great launcher, but some bugs/things are holding it back.. I really like this launcher, but the notification badges will not work correctly. Also I don't want the app drawer button on my screen, especially since I can open the suppl drawer by swiping up. When these are fixed I'll switch for good!
Like many others, I too have been using Nova but fancied a change. I wasn't expecting much from this to be honest, but it is pretty good overall. Nicely presented with useful features and all the customisation I need. Great job!
En using this app for some years now as I can gladly say from the earliest stage of arrow luncher and am impressed with d continuous improvement most especially d ability to use any icon pack but my little observation is the none availability of font which would in a very big way Increase usage and rating from people, am proud to be a user, but u get get my 5star when I have fonts to choose from.
Once I was using this launcher, my messages always said that there were two unread. I even deleted all of my texts and it still said two unread on the notification badge
