[Gratuitous praise here] It takes a lot of effort to think of complaints, but here's one: there's no input cleansing on the config files so errors can cause a crash; reparation is easy but inconvenient. Also, I'd like to be able to put some status lines on the same line, like battery, time, and user all together or some combo together. [EDIT] 'music -play' doesn't always play music, but when it does t-ui crashes. Not a very critical feature but it'd be nice to see fixed.

Great app! Works amazing on Android 11. Alias is the killer feature for me - finally I can create shortcuts to apps with whatever names I want, this speeds things up a lot. The auto completion is almost perfect: yeah, sometimes it suggests unwanted things, but it's working exactly the way I want it to in a simple homescreen app. I don't have root, but if I did, I'd consider this app a must-have.

Very enjoyable experience. I love the potential for personalization and I love how fluid the UI feels, however I've had a problem out of it. The app crashed after experimenting with some config lines and I haven't been able to get it to work properly since without crashing. I hope to figure it out soon because it's a very solid and enjoyable UI.
