When you launch the app, adX Launcher will appear as your home screen, so don't get surprised if no separate "app" is launched. When opening the App Drawer, you will see an adX badge on any app we have enhanced, as seen in the screenshot below.
If you want to launch an app without enhancements, long-hold the app icon for a menu with launch options.

YouTube ad-blocking supportadX Launcher enhances YouTube to allow for a nearly complete ad-free YouTube experience by removing video ads, banner ads in your video feeds, and ads when searching for new content. Some ads might slip through. We will continue to improve our ad blocking in the upcoming releases to remove any additional ads. Please send us feedback in-app or on GitHub if you see any ads and would like to help.
