So far on Android 11 it is beating the others I'm comparing it to (Hyperion, Nova) and the ones I've ruled out (Lawnchair, CPL, rootless, ruthless, trebuchet) due to bugs or missing features. My requirements were pretty slim - I use a 7x11 layout and *many* of the launchers don't "go to 11" (the Spinal Tap test?). The icon customization will show options across all installed packs, which Lawnchair used to do (but it isn't working at all on Android 11). It also seems fast. The only bugs I've found so far are: 1, when customizing icons, there are "stray pixels like broken text" but only until I do backup/restore at which point it is fixed, so not a problem. 2, the "keep your place in drawer don't go to top" seems to not work or not always work, but, it is only a minor inconvenience and only during certain very uncommon tasks that I care. A winner so far!

The interface is amazing and just the way I like it, swipe up anywhere for drawer and swipe down anywhere for notifications. One major problem though, when switching apps the window crashes if you tap on an app thats not in the centre. More stars if it's fixed. Edit: Pity that huawei doesn't play well with other launchers, if it weren't for my phone it would be fine then.

It is a Huawei issue and happens with every launcher

This is a beautiful launcher and has lots of features. However, there is one bug; the app drawer sometimes opens when it isn't triggered and sometimes closes on its own. I haven't been able to narrow down what triggers these unexpected actions.
