The launcher is a 5 Star, 10/10 app. I love it, and would still be using it if I hadn't upgraded to a Z Fold 4. Unfortunately the launcher isn't optimized for that specific phone. It doesn't support features like the dock or having a separate layout for the inner and outer displays. If they eventually add an update for those features I'd switch back to it in a heartbeat. So if you have the Z Flip or any other standard android phone/tablet, get this launcher, otherwise, wait for an update.

Been using this launcher for 3 or 4 years now, love the freedom it gives me. Now that I have a new fold phone (ZFold4) though, it would really be better if it had better support for foldables. At its current build, there still is no way to change the open-inside layout independently from the closed-outside layout. Personally its tolerable, but it means that both screens mirror the same layout, and when you switch between the two screens, the launcher simply stretches the aspect ratio to fit. :/

I made a mistake and deleted this and had to go back to the Google Pixel4 wallpaper experience. I don't like having all their garbage forced upon me and taking up space. This one is great. Also, you can back up your configuration. I downloaded the app again, opened it, and it asked if I would like to restore and everything was back to normal. Love it!
