Nice!
Your launcher it's very fast, even in an old entry level phone like the Galaxy Mini!
Also the ram usage seems less than others launcher :D

A thing that i usually look at, when i'm choosing a launcher, it's how fast the widget tab appear/is usable without lag...
And as always it's a thing not much optimized, because users and developers don't go so often in the widget tab, that's true..
But when I tap on it, since i don't use it much, i want it still to be fast as the rest of the launcher!
So, if you could do something in regards of that, this would become my daily launcher.
I know the old telephone may be the problem, but Nova launcher in this frontier does a really good job even on my phone!
If you want and have time, this could be a thing you can focus on ;)

Another thing: for me, the boundaries of a page, when you do a swipe, are a little too much visible, but that's only my opinion!

Keep up the good work and your launcher will surely become one of the best in circulation :good:

Thanks.

Do you experience a lag in the first time you go to the widget tab? or every time.
Do you have the same lag when you scroll between the pages?

About the outlines, you can disable them in the settings.

Every time I switch from the app tab to the widget one. And it lags the first time I scroll all the pages in the widget tab, but when I scroll back, after the previews are loaded, it is smooth as the rest of the launcher.
I hope you understand what I mean. Sorry if I can't explain it too well, but I'm Italian!

I didn't see the outlines options the first time, thanks for the tip, i found it now! ;)

Quick question, does this have the option to arrange the apps in the drawer manually (I hate the prefixed alphabetical, latest installed and most used arrangements)? I'm not the type who uses folders to organize my apps. I have a predetermined arrangement of apps since the first time I owned an android phone. That's the only reason I've been holding back in using Apex and Nova. If this Launcher has it, then this will be the answer for my long search for a great launcher. :))

Hope you can end my search. :)

Does this launcher support transparent status bar for the Galaxy S4? Nova Launcher does but I would like to try a new launcher as I have some problems with App Drawer on Nova Launcher but I'd like to have transparent status bar.

I am not sure about transparency. You can hide the status bar.
Can you please download and report if it meets your expectations?

Thanks

Thanks, but I tried and it's something different. I don't want to hide the status bar, just want the background if the status bar to be transparent, so you can see the wallpaper but on top things like clock, etc.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯
A really solid launcher! I like it:good:
One thing I'd suggest being implemented is random transitions, that'd be a really cool feature to have seeing how smooth the transitions are, even apex transtitions lag sometimes on my device, but not perfect launcher:highfive:
Too bad this isn't getting the attention it deserves :(

    Was this removed? I only see Hide Status bar, Show Page Indicator, and Hide Icon Labels.

    Yes, I need to fix it.

    There are 2 issues
    1) It is in the drawer settings instead of screen settings.
    2) You need to restart the launcher in order to see the changes.

    I will fix it in the next update.

    I am working now on the option to import the desktop settings from other launches.

    Incredibly thick this evening but I can't see to find out how to add another home screen with perfect launcher.

    If you use the pinch to zoom gesture then it will bring up the screen to add them.
