This app is so good it's the first one I'm leaving a review for unsolicited. I couldn't believe how I was able to customize my phone this well. It has features from two other phones I liked that I could incorporate to my current phone. I was able to get rid of the feature where you swipe left for Google and allow me to swipe screens back to home screen. Awesome. Allows you to increase the amount of apps on screen also allows more room for widgets.

It's really too bad that such a good app ruined an easy 5 star rating by being greedy. This app does just about everything great. But a major feature is only available in the Premium version. If you want the # of notifications displayed on icon badges (free in default app) you will need to now pay to have that feature by upgrading to the Premium version. Everything else about the app, and the fact that 1 feature is a "must have" feature for me, I went premium. Just hate feeling suckered.

I like it overall; however, there seems to be a tie between it and Google as to which is slowing down my phone. On a hunch I turned on Data Saver and disabled access to all except a small few apps needed for work. Unfortunately, yours is not allowed free reign. Before I turned on Data Saver I was having to reboot my phone almost every day, sometimes more than once. Peace has been restored.
