I tried this and love it, you deserve a bump for sure. Great as a lightweight alternative to Lawnchair. Icons and hiding apps are what i care about most, and this performs better than AOSP. I left a review on my Google account; only thing I would like to see improved is none of the primary theme colors have enough contrast with the accent color applied. I explained a little better in my review, but other than that, it's perfect.
Surprised this isn't getting more attention. Lawnchair's hot, and deservingly so, but it's heavy on lower ram phones and a lot of it's focus is on incorporating all the cool fancy Google/Pixel stuff . Yours is great, light , improved AOSP version, which is equally as appealing to me. Thanks for this..
