A very functional light weight app. No ads 👍.Using this as an app to search within the device rather than as the default launcher. Very responsive when searching contacts. There is, however, a few seconds delay when starting up.. The options for Signal, WhatsApp, SMS etc. make it more useful. Very responsive developer. Thanks for making this app available.

Great launcher but : 1. "Apps list" and "display all apps" aren't very responsive. Sometimes need 1-2s to load the apps icon. 2. Swipe gesture isn't very responsive too, sometimes I need to swipe twice after using other gesture. 3. The widget position setting is very annoying btw | and can ask something, it would be very useful if you can give gesture in app drawer or app list, so we can back to home with swipe gesture too, or without home/back button. Thanks btw.

I really like the functionality of this launcher, it's small but full of useful features.There are a few things which needed to be updated.Firstly, when I add Google's clock widget it doesn't come in actual circular shape but square, which looks weird.Lastly, whenever I lock screen by double tap my phone asks password to unlock but not biometrics it says phone has been locked by a third party app.

Thanks for the feedback. Need to look onto google clock widget issue. Doubletap lock is intentionally done as "secure" lock, needing password to be entered.
