Just installed Lacks some basic features Has only one screen You cannot place icons on homescreen except as favourites in one row When you place more than 3 or 4 icons on homescreen as favourites they become very tiny Allow placement of icons on homescreens and allow rearrangement Allow movement of widgets by dragging It would then feel like a launcher Thanks

Thanks for the feedback. Try removing app names from favorites and there is also "bigger favorites" setting, those will make them slightly bigger. Multiple widged handling could indeed have better control, feedback noted.

Underestimated at first. Really goooooood, its the ultimate version of another launcher similar to this. So much better. It looks scary at first when editing stuff but it is easy tbh. This might be my best launcher to date.

It has "exclude app" feature. See Zen Launcher Settings / History settings / View or edit apps excluded from Zen to hide some apps. Im not sure what you mean by lock feature but check out Zen launcher settings / User experience / Action on double click / Lock screen. That will lock device so that pin/password is required to open it.
