Limited functionality. Can't edit the random order the apps appear in. Can't have a layout I like (I find scrolling through a long list to be unusable, so I prefer a grid view). Way too many ads in the free version. I get that I can upgrade to get rid of them, but there's a reasonable way to do ads and then there's ads on every click that are super annoying. Plus the lack of functionality prevents me from even considering the upgrade.

Have used this app for a very long time. I'm always looking at other sidebar apps in hopes of finding one better than this one, but they all come up short. Love it. Just wish we could choose a different layout other than a circle. Perhaps a horizontal format where we can swipe left and right to scroll through our apps. That would be beautiful

I like this app. I hate having direct accesses on main screen (that's why Huawei is big NO for me) so this kind of apps has been a MUST for quite some time. So far my experience has been a good one, there's one little "but" tho. Every time i touch de circle to display my apps it moves, at the end of the day it end up on the bottom of the screen. Isn't there a way to fix it to the screen so it won't move. Considering buying "Pro" if that is corrected on it.
