This is definitely unique, love the instant Web right from the homescreen. Implementation of the app drawer is pretty cool as well. Would love to see the ability to use custom icons and ability to add more pages to homescreen. But this with some more development could definitely get me off apex.

Just downloaded your launcher very nice I think it has a lot of potential, I think one great feature if I'd possible is to show the user to select what is accessed from swiping to the left page, however I feel this could be done but be very complicated to have it work as well as the current setup as the browser as I understand it is built in, idk just throwing around some ideas that I thought of after messing with it for a few minutes, very nice launcher love the simplicity of it and how responsive it is, very nice alpha

Really liking the launcher. Just wish I could swipe from the right to access the Chrome browser instead of the aosp one.
