This app can be buggy sometimes, but overall, it's a good launcher, and better than my last 2. If you have 3 button navigation enabled, sometimes the 3rd button (right) won't do anything. I have to switch back to the Pixel Launcher and then relaunch Pear to get it to work again. I wish there was an option to adjust the space between the home screen icons and the dock because that's wasted space (esp. if you don't want the arrow). Thanks for recently updating it based on my previous review!

Doesn't look like the preview pics. There's a huge gap between dock icons and search bar. I also use a pure black wallpaper but the dark theme of this launcher doesn't allow you to change the search bar color (Also pure black) making it basically invisible. It's almost everything I wanted just seems like it's not being taken care of properly because these are silly issues to have.

A good Nova replacement but still lacks some features and polish. Wallpaper picker always seems to offset the image you select and align so if its symmetrical in the picker it will be offset to the left once applied. No option to reorder app folders in the app drawer so once theyve been made you would have to empty them out and rename to change which folder appears first. There are a couple more examples but otherwise it's a nice clean launcher that gets the job done.
