go in play store page for the app, look for CONTACT THE DEVELOPER and do it... bugs will never be resolved if you do not let the original developer know about them... everybody here use the term OPENSOURCE and forget one of its basis: collaboration... which means produce code, documentation, or simply testing an app and reporting bugs... even more if you paid for it...

Edit: I also emailed the dev via their main page. Hopefully we can get some answers.

Yeah that's a useful build.prop property.

I'm using Apex Launcher (free) and have not had 20-40+sec redraw problems before or after that build.prop tweak.

I *have* had redraws prior to the tweak but it's only taken about 5 sec max. I don't have "Keep in Memory" ticked in Apex settings.

EDIT -> Hmm, getting the black screen too now. Seems to happen when I usually press back to get Home.

EDIT 2 -> The black screen for me seems to be a sign of system instability. When I get the black screen, sometimes the SystemUI crashes instead. Need to check what might be causing the instability...

Strongly suggest anyone moving onto LPY roms (custom or stock) to perform a factory reset / wipe first and using Titanium Backup or some other app to restore.

Was getting really laggy performance on LPY until I wiped (I just did a factory reset using *STOCK* LPY kernel... didn't brick).

Another massively useful build.prop tweak is setting the Max Events setting... scrolling etc is *much* smoother with this.

Code:
windowsmgr.max_events_per_sec=150

Any number over 60 just means even faster, smoother scrolling/swiping. I had it at 240 but found it too fast so dialed it down a bit.

i just switched to nova launcher for the hell of it and dam....nova runs twice as smooth as fast on the note. gonna be sticking with nova launcher until the apex dev updates his app to work better with the note.

Exactly the same problems expressed on this thread with GO LAUNCHER EX too!
Ruining my lovely ICS experience.

Looks like we have to wait a bit for developers to catch up and ICS to mature. Similar experience on Honeycomb in the early days tbh.
