Cool Request for Features

Hello Dennis, absolutely love your launcher -- currently running it on my SGS2 and TF101.

Have had 1 or 2 of the minor niggles listed in the thread, but nothing of note.

I have a request for 2 features:

1: Multiple save files with the option to rename, so that I can try out various combinations of settings without manually going through all the options again, with the ability to restore, of course. ;)

2: The ability to create and rename custom categories inside the app drawer -- iE: utilities, GPS, etc etc.

So far very impressed with the way the Launcher is evolving and the fact that you actually listen/talk to people.

is it only a mine problem that the restore does not restore the widgets but only icons and group icons?

thanks.

Great launcher. Works Perfect on my Galaxy Tab.
There is just one thing I want to mention. Since version 0.6 something changed
with homescreens grid size. Take a look at these pictures. Their both gird size
are set on 7*9, but as you can see they look different. It looked much better on
0.5 in my opinion. Is there something that can be done about it?
BTW, good job, keep it up.

I also have the same problem as you. I've tried to use different size of icon but the result were same.

This is probably an ICS thing...but sometimes when I use the back button to back out of an app...it goes to the stock launcher Home screen.

Third. Quite annoying, hopefully this gets resolved

Recently coming over to Apex from Nova and so far am very impressed with Apex. One thing I noticed is that the "Home key to default screen" does not seem to also make the dock revert to a default dock. Is there a way to set this? I prefer to not use infinite scroll for my dock and would like to be able to use the home button to snap back to my default dock.

Hi,
Your launcher is IMO the best one on ICS. I love the swipe actions but I find them a tad too sensitive: when scrolling a widget (eg. Gmail) it triggers the swipe action too often. Is it possible to make the sensitivity configurable? Or simply to decrease it a bit?

Thanks again.
