I love the idea behind this launcher. When it works, it's so much more efficient than other launchers. However, lately I have been having an issue where icons for random apps will disappear... I have tried uninstall in and reinstalling, but the issue persists. It has been an issue on several different phones too... I'm about to just switch launchers since I can't see my apps...
Comparing to other stock launcher clones, this is so much better! Minimalistic, elegant and smart design. But there are some annoyances. 1⃣ App theming is not in synch with phone's UI theming. No theming support inside the app. So sometimes there are almost unreadable parts of the UI. 2⃣ RAM consumption is poorly optimized. 100MB more RAM usage compared to Nova launcher. This thing alone makes me consider switching launcher 3⃣ Developer not responding to mail queries. For paid users, that's not acceptable.
I've tried hundreds of home screen and themed launchers and this beats them all. i started on a huawei with trying all kinds of themed replacers. from nova. ex. buntuu. and even some windows ones. proudly this one beat them in the one thing i care about ease of use. and for those who want a clean screen to work with this is a nice one to have
Years later I still use this! I first encountered SL back in the SL2 days. that was roughly 3 years ago. Every time I obtain an Android device I find this is the first application end up installing. Keep up the good work!
The app is awesome and i have used the pro version for a long time, however one thing the developer should do is to make the unread count badges a bit larger and make them count the remaining unread notifications, unlike just disappearing when you open the associated app. Adding a rearrange option in the app drawer will be cool.
Could you please provide an option to scroll to the left for the full grid of apps (and give option to display all apps with no categorization in settings)? Like not a drawer open like you have currently but a smooth animated swipe (drawer would be default since that's your trademark but swipe would be an option. Would look so clean. Also give us setting to enable notification dots like stock launcher has. I would gladly pay for the app again if you added these features. Would be my definition of perfection. Have been using this app for years and love it. If you need new developers to implement these features feel free to shoot me an email. I'd gladly help
- Updated search bar APIs for web suggestions (this update is necessary to continue using the feature)
- Improved RAM usage;
- Fixed a bug that caused SL to crash while using certain apps;
