  1. lukkemela-avatar

    Paid the plus version and was very satisfied with the features. And suddenly I can't use Google search engine if I don't pay again. Do yourself a favor and don't pay a cent on this app. It will just ask you for more money the next year unless you want to see some features blocked. Don't support a developer that doesn't add features but asks for money to do the same things you did before.

  2. Jason Badon-avatar

    Has a bug in the settings that is not everywhere, but even with that I love this app! The swipe right to left to give you a scrolling menu of all of your apps is just the best. Until I tried this launcer I used Microsoft's Launcher. After trying it for free I purchased it. Best of all, it provides a fresh interface to my android 6 only devices. I really love this Launcher app!

  3. Lauren Mueller-avatar

    Awesome app. Worth the buy. If you use custom fonts, go to the *app* settings, then appearance>font>system. This launcher is so customizable.. I don't think I'll ever stop using it. Also, you can still use a Google search widget on your home screen. Or, change the app settings, quickbar>action search>enable (DISable it) and THEN set the search engine to Google. You must DISABLE ACTION SEARCH BEFORE you can change the search engine to Google. Btw, a google search would've answered this too🤣

  4. Stephanie Bishop-avatar

    I've been using Action Launcher for about 5 years, and I love it! 😊 Some of my favorite features are the pull-out app list, ability to use several icon packs, and the ability to customize almost all parts of the interface; including making icons very small and having the launcher automatically match colored themes to the wallpaper I choose. Thanks so much for a great product that allows me to make my device unique and truly my own.

  5. Joseph Perdomo-avatar

    I have been using this launcher for so long. It is hands down the best in terms of functionality and more importantly, looks. I know people complain about devs asking for more money after they've purchased a previous version but they don.t understand the work that goes into it. I will happily support this developer because the launcher is fantastic and has awesome features.

  6. Daniel Gomes-avatar

    Great launcher. I normally use Nova which is excellent but thought I'd give a few others a try as well and Action was the best of the rest. I don't use all the theming options so cannot comment, but having todays event on the screen was very useful. If you're after a Pixel like experience, you can't go wrong. This is one of Android's greatest strengths: being able to easily change your launcher at will and customise to your liking.

  7. Chad Steinbeck-avatar

    Worst launcher ever. Tip 2 use Google search action settings - > quick bar and disable action search. It disables the obnoxious app tray search tho. Gee I get rid of two annoying features. What 'future' development r we supporting w/ no updates for 6 months? You have to 'become a supporter' 2 switch from Bing. I paid to remove ads. I WANT MY MONEY BACK! Everything customizable, but this one you have to pay for. The search bar has the Google G. Idk how many apps have to premium levels.

  8. Jeremy Kopchak-avatar

    The below is resolved. Best launcher to date. ________________________________________________ So I bought this app a while ago and suddenly he removes the Google search integration and puts it behind a paywall that's the same price as I paid for the app! now it uses 'Action Search' instead which doesn't have maps support. NOT COOL! There is a workaround, Step 1. Disable Action Search app. Step 2. Change search engine back to Google.

  9. Liz Skewes-avatar

    This was my favorite launcher for years but suddenly it's giving me problems. But it's the best launcher for me. I can't deny that, so I'm going to keep using it and hope for the best. But some apps disappear from home screen regularly. Textra in particular.

  10. Analisia Hightower-avatar

    Looks beautiful, runs perfectly. However, if you intend to use Google as your main search engine, you have to pay money. I did, it also unlocks special colors and more customization... Turns out, you need to spend MORE money on actually being able to USE it. A big rip off, and, frankly, a little sketchy, but a solid customization app nonetheless.

  11. S. Lynch-avatar

    I'm changing my 5 star to a 1. How long is it before a launcher is considered abandoned by it's dev? It's been 5 months now since any update to the launcher. I think he's taken a powder. All that work on a digital well-being app that no one wanted. And no fixes to the launcher. Time to fly I guess. Too bad. It used to be great. TTFN.

  12. Mr Green-avatar

    Great customization. I only wish they included a feature that allows the Google bar to remain present while scrolling to different home pages. Nova launcher does this remarkably well. UPDATE: I lowered my rating because they took out the feature of having a Google search engine on the search bar. If you want it, you have to pay for the 2020 version. You'll obviously have to pay every year if you want that feature. Nova launcher comes with this feature by default.

  13. Jimmy Sharp-avatar

    The launcher worked okay until Android 10. Now, it's a buggy mess. The app drawer refuses to show app names regardless of the number of times it's changed. The side panel and home screen dump widgets, and that's if the launcher can even display the widget at all. Most widgets won't function with the launcher. Over all, it was a nice idea, but the designers have either fallen asleep at the wheel or just don't care anymore.

  14. Chris C-avatar

    So, I'm pretty brutal when it comes to critiquing software as I've used alot of it. Anywho; if you're looking something stock+ with more features - this is it. I've gone through quite a few launchers over the years and was ultimately looking for something that was like stock, with customization, but no clunkiness. This checked all the boxes. It does have some bugs regarding widgets. But that's not a deal breaker by any means. Its present, yet minimal and intuitive. Well done 👍

  15. Preston Holden-avatar

    I actually love this app and find it incredibly useful. But lately it will crash and turn my entire screen black. When my screen comes back, it will either be the system launcher or I have to hard reboot my phone to restore functionality. Not sure why this randomly started happening but I hope they fix it soon. I liked this enough to pay for it and now I'm about to uninstall it.

  16. Michael Leung-avatar

    I used the paid version for about a year now, because I wanted the left side to have Google now. It requires me to reload my home screen a few times a day (which was fine) and it never got fixed. Probably uninstalling now because it's been lagging a lot (on Galaxy S10+). Otherwise, a solid launcher with tons of customization.

  17. Brittany Biggs-avatar

    Best Launcher I've Tried, Hands Down! I've been using Action as my default launcher for over a month now - the longest that I've ever stuck with one launcher since I'm picky and can never find one that has EVERYTHING I want - but this one has it all!! I paid for the premium version & NEVER pay for apps (let alone review them)...100% worth it for the extra features offered! Absolutely worth at least giving it a try ~ I'll be sticking with Action as my default for good & I'm sure you will too🙌🏼

  18. Max Wong-avatar

    Purchased, tried for 30 mins going through all the settings in it, Regretted my purchase afterwards, main reason is, I have Nova Prime but no matter the customization i can't get it to mimic the pixel launcher . whereas action is more on point. But beyond that Nova does everything better.

  19. Yahanan Xie-avatar

    Claims to support Android 10 Gesture Navigation but it doesn't. Already at February 2020 update and still no Gesture Navigation when using this as the default launcher. In addition to that, you can barely use the app to test it, far too many paywalls, this is not the way to convince people to upgrade, it's very obvious they want to milk you.

  20. Deepro Bhattacharyya-avatar

    Deepro Bhattacharyya


    Love this! Amazing smooth launcher. Optimised for android and runs on even lower spec phones without a problem. No complaints at all. I find myself coming back to this launcher again and again after using others like Lawnchair 2, Nova Prime and Smart Launcher 5. Although Google Discover Feed is still in Beta, here's hoping the developers are working on it to make it a main feature in the coming update. It really is the swiss knife of app launchers.

  21. Kevin Char-avatar

    Hate it. The support for Androind 10 gesture navigation is awful and buggy, NOT SMOOTH at all. There are greedy bastards to have so many hidden cost. They make staying on free edition is impossible. There are layers of payment which really suck your wallet to a huge amount just for a launcher. STAY AWAY from this developer.

  22. Darren Small-avatar

    What happened to this launcher over the space of a year or two? Quality has completely deminished. Stuff they say has support is only half baked. The animation for the navigation gestures are actually awful. Closing an app should actually close down like a bubble onto the actual app icon but with this launcher it just...doesn't. It sort of takes you back to your homepage with a stuttery blink 😕.

  23. Rob Mc-avatar

    Was a great launcher for so long, but bit by bit, changes to the UX drove me away. First of all, the annoying menu that now appears every time you hit the home button one too many times. Then, out of the blue updates change many launcher features unpredictably, meaning the need to reconfigure customisations. Life is too short to be beholden to random updates that break the way we painstakingly customise our devices, and I hope that becomes apparent for others in future updates.

  24. Colin-_1234-avatar

    A really good alternative launcher for people who can't find anything else you like!! Just one thing it would be cool if there was more settings so I can customize it more to my liking but otherwise it's fantastic:)

  25. Rick Blevins-avatar

    ⚠️ $$$ DON'T PAY FOR THE PRO VERSION.. Nice launcher and very customizable but only if your willing to pay $7.00 to actually see how it works. And by the way if you don't like it your stuck with it because they fail to inform you that there is no refunds until after you've made the payment. I'd give em "0" stars if possible just for their poor business practices... SAD

  26. להתאבל שון-avatar

    להתאבל שון


    Totally worth the money, Pay again BOLLOCKS to you. Keep your app. The improvement is certainly not worth the money. App deleted perhaps you discuss why you left so many files behind. Nefarious would describe the request for more money. Good luck with your enterprise. I am no longer thrilled with something that is available for free, open source, upgrades included Join Microsoft in the software industry's waste land of the inconsequential. Zero *

  27. Matthew Lemmers-avatar

    Matthew Lemmers


    Updated review until third party launchers receive support for the new gesture navigation. Evidently Google hasn't released proper support for them beyond their own Pixel devices. Highly disappointing but I guess they wanna give their own devices an edge over their competition. Hopefully support is added soon though. Really miss the added customization of being able to use my own icon packs rather then the stock launcher.

  28. Matthew Vargason-avatar

    Matthew Vargason


    This launcher totally changed the Mi experience. That is a very good thing because I didn't really have the money to buy an all new phone right after getting this one but I just could not mesh with the default skin. But with Action Launcher it looks and performs like devices that are new this year.

  29. snowcrossfan-avatar

    Love the app but crashes and has been doing this for quite sometime. Been dealing with the crashes for about a year and now they are happening every night. I can deal with a lot of stuff but time to move on to a more stable app.

  30. Kenji Sasahara-avatar

    I'm using Android 10 with the April 2020 security update and the gestures aren't working. I have contacted the developer about it and they sent me a canned response that had nothing to do with the problem. Please note that I bought the premium version.

  31. walt verdese-avatar

    I have purchased the plus for two features: the Now integration and the Weather Widget. Both are broken. I'll keep the launcher as it's overall good, but I could have used it for free if they were more honest about the state of the service upfront. I feel scammed.

  32. S Ulrich-avatar

    Was great until.... Now it crashed often, the search bar is locked to action launcher default. The extra packages you have to pay extra for. I use this on both my phone and tablet and both are experiencing the same problems.

  33. Lazar Bozic-avatar

    Nice app, very smooth most of the time. It sometimes crashes and i have to switch back to it as a default launcher, but this doesn't happen that often. Suggested improvement: make customize app drawer button more subtle. It just sits there in the corner, triggering my ocd.

  34. A Google user-avatar

    Really love this launcher. I've been having a small bug though: when I restart my phone, the apps installed on the SD card are moved out of their app drawer folders.

  35. Zack-avatar

    Lots of customization and features. My only gripe is that basic/common options are hidden behind a paywall... (aka forcing users to use pay $5 or stick with Bing)

  36. Purple Flix-avatar

    It's not the best, but it's not the worst. The Google feed tends to not work at some times, but it makes sense since it's still in Beta. Quickpage can be a little buggy at times especially when placing widgets in there (like nothing happens when you try to move or resize them), unless you restarted the launcher and cleared its cache in the settings. But that's pretty minor for me, and in the end, it still gets most of the job done like how a typical launcher should, so I'd still recommend

  37. Sachin garg-avatar

    need option for horizontal app drawer. Everything is fine and has all the necessary customised actions but required a refined settings menu as present settings is difficult to figure out. One star 🌟 less just for not having horizontal app drawer.

  38. Satyajit Saha-avatar

    This app will be the Best Launcher of 2020 if the developer of Action Launcher changes the certain issues. Please remove the Plus Version so downloaders & users can use all features of Android 10, Android 11 Beta & Google Pixel Features for FREE! in any Android or iOS devices without buying any latest and expensive smartphones. Many devices are not eligible to upgrade to latest android software so users will download and install Action Launcher to personalize their smartphones.

  39. Rachel-avatar

    My phone updated and now the action launcher keeps changing back to the pixel launcher so I have to push the middle button to switch it back. Is there a way to fix this so it's always the action launcher? There was not a problem until the update. Love this app!!

  40. Mayank Kanodia-avatar

    Everything was good until lately when I last updated app. Since then, I am unable to see notification bar instead I see just a black empty space there. Please fix this..

  41. Bhavesh Patel-avatar

    Good launcher, have paid for plus and using since 2017. However installed it on new phone and requires repurchasing support to enable basic features including quickbar search engine to be Google instead of bing! Really frustrating and lack of asthetic updates makes me want to jump to another launcher

  42. Zachry Alexander-avatar

    Zachry Alexander


    Caution: You have to pay an extra $4.99 (on top of the $6.99) to use Google search on the Google search bar. Having to do this on an Android phone is ridiculous. The only option is Bing. An obvious money grab from the developer. You click on the Google search icon and get taken to Bing. So wrong. I wasted $6.99. I'm going back to Nova Launcher which is a far superior launcher.

  43. Dheeraj Sahay-avatar

    For something that's a paid app the performance is quite poor. The launcher crashes all the time. Which is why they have put a quick restart option. The Google feed crashes every few hours. The notification dots aren't accurate. If the app was free the problems would be understandable. Don't put out a sub standard app if you're not ready. Product 101.

  44. Wrong Hole-avatar

    Taken from their support page. "If your device is running Android 10 and the system settings will not allow you to select Action Launcher as the default launcher when using gesture navigation, it almost certainly means your device has yet to receive the necessary Android system update." I have a Samsung Galaxy S10 plus that has the December update, still I'm unable to use the Android 10 gesture navigation with this launcher. It's a fantastic launcher, don't get me wrong, but I'm uninstalling it.

  45. Mike Knafo-avatar

    Greedy. In short, it's cool but they nickel and dime you. I just downloaded this app tonight and after a few minutes of playing with it, I liked it enough to upgrade to the $7 version. Then I started noticing all the searches were going through Bing. I tried to change the settings so the searches would go through google, but they have that locked behind a $5 paywall. Really guys?

  46. jake day-avatar

    The only app I've purchased that just keeps having features restricted as new ways to support pop up. This last one is the final straw; forcing me to use bing rather than Google unless I become a supporter after I already paid full price is just a total dick move. How many times must I pay before I can be sure I'm getting the full product. I'm not trying to subscribe to a launcher ffs. Nova is now the better launcher, just on principle. You should be ashamed of yourself.

  47. Brad Smith-avatar

    Love it. Only rating 4 stars though as I would like to see the option to make the navigation bar be solid when in the app drawer or launcher settings. Thanks

  48. Jade Summer-avatar

    LOVE this launcher. It is the BEST. It's exciting, customizable, convenient and it just works. I've used this launcher for years now on different devices and even though I've tried other launchers, I always come right back to this one. Thank you so much to the developer. 😊 couldn't be any prouder to become a supporter, keep up the excellent work!

  49. Brett Mello-avatar

    Number one reason to not ever pay for an app's pro version? Answer: force-users to use BING as the default search! Lol. Obviously, there is an easy workaround for this, but all respect is lost for that choice even if the solution is simple and doesn't require a purchase. I would be way too embarrassed to recommend this to anybody. No matter the quality of the app, even in it's pro version. C'mon devs, BING?? Really? Perfect content for a "DO NOT INSTALL" video, so thanks for that, I guess!

  50. Basel Al-Rudainy-avatar

    Basel Al-Rudainy


    They are robbing people of money! The "pro" is not actually a pro subscription! You have to continue paying for services! And in doing so (in-app purchase) there is no refunds as in the Play-store!

  51. Craig Lewis-avatar

    I prefer a minimalist interface. Action Launcher has allowed me to set up such an interface. Being able to backup and restore your interface choices between devices is EXTREMELY helpful!

  52. Sean Anderson-avatar

    This does not bring the Pixel launcher to your device. I own a Pixel 4xl and only downloaded this because the actual Pixel launcher doesn't allow icon packs to be used.. You will have access to only some of the gestures. And for whatever reason, you can only use Bing as your default search engine. Yes you read that correctly. The Action Launcher Pixel Edition doesn't allow you to use Google search. There is an option to pay an additional fee for the privilege to access Google search.

  53. Duy Tô-avatar

    My calculation widget doesn't work. I tested on my stock launcher and it still worked normally. This launcher has many of bugs!!! So disappointed!!!

  54. Sarp Turan-avatar

    Very well optimized and smooth. And also very easy to use. No ads. Starts immediately after rebooting device. Simply amazing!

  55. Ravi Chopra-avatar

    Google feed is glitchy in terms of updating / letting you click on things. That's the reason I paid for the pro version so it would be great to look into that, many thanks. Update: still doesn't work well at all for Google feed. Thinking of switching to Nova unless there's an update coming. It said Google discover integration for everyone in the description so that's pretty misleading!

  56. Kevin R-avatar

    I purchased this launcher because in the latest release it says to support android 10 gestures, however I had no luck with this working. When go to Settings> Default apps> Launcher, and select Action Launcher as the default one, the navigation bar changes to the old 3 button style. And I cannot select the new android 10 gestures, exactly same problem I have with nova launcher and any other launcher. I have 1 December 2019 latest updates, so that's not the problem. A bit disappointed...

  57. Rick Jones-avatar

    Like the launcher. Bought the premium so I could have Google as default search engine (though the search bar used a Google icon). Was unable to use Google as search unless I became a 2020 supporter in addition to having premium. I'm not going to keep purchasing upgrades just to change my defaults without any communication.

  58. Andrew Jacobs-avatar

    Would have been 5, but the "2020 Supporter Pack" removed some features which already existed, and I had paid for previously, and put them behind the 2020 pay wall. That kinda sucked since I supported you already and am happy to support you again, but this just felt like I got cheated. For reference, Google searching in the quick bar was the feature that was something I had, then suddenly had to pay for when the 2020 Supporter Pack was available...

  59. Luke Henderson-avatar

    Very deceiving! Locks everything behind a pay wall, including searching with Google as a default (try to figure that moronic decision out). Then asks you to "Go Pro" to make even basic things accessible, like the before mentioned Google default search and then... Get this... It lock Google search behind a second yearly "donation" which is in NO WAY a donation because there's no other option. Don't download this!

  60. John Vickers-avatar

    I have just paid £4.49 for the app. Then, installing action dash, that's another £4.49. I then use the search bar - it defaults to bing. When I try to change it, there is a 2020 supporters fee of £3.99. Annoyed that I have paid once, they are mot getting any more of my money and is being uninstalled. App is good, but how they have monetised it is bad. I'd avoid this

  61. Jim Williams-avatar

    So far its working great. Wanted a customizable launcher. Nice to see a developer who supports their app and keeps it updated. Was using Nova Launcher but kept getting glitches and disappearing icons.

  62. Bimantara Ksatria Putra-avatar

    After reading news from google feed, I hit the back button, it send me to launcher's homescreen instead of google feed home. I was looking for launcher integrated with gogle feed sidebar, I bought this one and in 8 months that bug still doesn't solve.

  63. Iain Thomas-avatar

    I bought this app a little while ago and now it's holding basic functionality to ransom behind a "2020 Supporter" paywall. The only search engine available to me through the launcher is Bing unless I want to pay another £3.99. Disgraceful. Asking people to pay multiple times for new functionality is one thing, actively removing functionality and charging again is completely unethical and potentially illegal. Utterly disgraceful behaviour.

  64. Chris Mcbride-avatar

    I love this launcher the only issue I have is the gestures option where you can swipe from the left or right of the screen to go back on android 10 closes when this launcher is saved as default launcher. The more options options becomes greyed out when this launcher is set

  65. Pavel Stoyan-avatar

    After the update to Android 10 on my galaxy S 9 I was hoping to get those new navigation gestures which are also promised by developer since the last update. But unfortunately this doesn't work. Also the open app animation doesn't use the new standard animation of one ui2. I hope dear developer you can bring a new update with fixes asap. The launcher ist still my favourite, so please fix those issues.

  66. Joshua Nash-avatar

    Great launcher. But there's a noticable delay when swiping out of a app to go back home using gestures of latest version of Android. Home screen will show no apps or widgets for a second. Just a minor complaint.

  67. Z Raylin.Khalitzburg-avatar

    Z Raylin.Khalitzburg


    Great for the most part. The only real grip I have is... Why can't i have a quickpage on the left side? and why only one? why can't i have a quickpage on the left and one on the right?

    Some app functionality does not work or gets stuck. I am using nova 5t and the app does not get selected as the default and it always goes back to the normal look. Waste of money

    Android 10 gestures do NOT work. As soon as it installs and you set as default launcher, a pop up comes up and says navigation gestures not compatible. So uninstalling til fixed.

    Even after premium unlock a few BS money grabs for functionality unlocks. If I hadn't already bought premium and liked it, I would have deleted it. It required an extra add-on to ALLOW me to use Google as my default search provider on Action Search bar. It's a crappy way to treat your customers.

    I have used this app for a couple of years. It is very good. You have to upgrade call Ma if you want to lock the shortcuts on the home screen.

  72. Bij Dikh-avatar

    Everything about the launcer is great, but the Google search bar widget that comes with this is just broken. I've done everything I can to make Google the default search engine, I changed it in Chrome, the settings in Google, and on my keyboard and no matter what it just searches with Bing.

  73. T.J. Lipscomb-avatar

    I wish I could make app usage work with Digital Wellbeing or turn it off, instead of having a permanent ad for a product I'm not going to use.

    Seems to work fine, but it made me really angry that I bought the plus version on the first few minutes of usage just to be able to have Google as my standard search engine. It turns out that after that you also have to buy the "2020 supporter pack" to activate said feature!

  75. Davyon-avatar

    The launcher is great, stylish, and instuitive. I have 1 complain , at least on my samsung A50 it has a lag spike then rotaring the home the first time after using an app. Im positice its just a bugg and you guys can fix, it annoyinh at time. I would 5 star if not. Still recommended.

  76. KrypticalRose-avatar

    Best launcher out there in my opinion. Works on all icon packs, easy to use, and has all the functions that other launchers have, but... in my opinion $6.99 for a prime edition is to steep. but the good news is you don't even need prime because all the good features are free. 5 stars

  77. Girish Amesara-avatar

    Overall experience good, but I one gestured not working at all. Example Calendar app does not shows current date and show standard date as 26...? No response????

  78. Marc Baker-avatar

    With such a premium pricetag more things should be available to try in the free version even if just for a day the Google feed integration is an important part of pixel launcher and with just 15 minutes to decide whether it has good functionality just isn't enough... Uninstalled looked promising though

  79. c ab-avatar

    i like action launcher and want to use it, but my battery drops 10% in 5 minutes with the screen on. switched back to pixel launcher and battery lasts longer with no other changes. action launcher seriously needs some battery optimizations. will use if the battery drain is fixed.

    Awesome! One small feature request: add customisation to the "unread badges" - namely I would like to have them circular. Another one: opening an article from Google now/feed plugin and going back brings you to the home screen instead of showing the Google now/feed exactly where you left

  81. Jeff Ramlow-avatar

    Warning: Expensive. If you do the in-app purchase to Pro, there are no refunds unlike buying pro versions through the play store. And Pro isn't really Pro since the get decent functionality you have to purchase additional items. Very deceiving. Pro functionality is limited.

  82. Jacob Walker-avatar

    Far too much locked behind paywall. Cant even test features to see if i would find then useful. Could be good. But I paid for Apex years ago ill go back to that.

    The launcher does not support stock android 10 gesture navigation on March update on stock android. Please check and rectify at the earliest.

  84. Stefan Dwight-avatar

    Wanted to change the search bar search engine said had to pay so I did thought it was worth it. Yet as soon as I paid the goalposts moved and had to pay for something else

    It's pretty good, but missing a bit of functionality. Mostly just that doing a pitch out on the home screen does not go to editing the home screen slides. But some button in the menu are also about clunky. This is all stuff for the setup so it's not about deal.

  86. Rajesh dp-avatar

    idk why its laging so much. when i press home or recent button it freeze the screen and takes long time to respond and also when i apply icon pack after few minutes it resets the icons to default.

  87. John Tedham-avatar

    I've used this launcher for over 6 years. Alphabetized app drawer left side, action bar out of the right hand side, and up to date gesture support. This is the best application I've used. Support this developer, he has created a user interface that works better than Google's.

  88. Alex Voulk-avatar

    Love lots of stuff about it, but would like to give an easy feedback option to help codevelop the app from the user side. App quickdrawer should be editable, and calendar widget and weather widget do not work properly for me. Given I had some advice of how to do make this work or apply the changes, easily 5 stars

    Another year, another new phone and once again back to action launcher. Definitely the best launcher out. Constant updates glad to keep paying to support.

  90. Jim Ferrara-avatar

    Love the app and had to contact support and I have to say I wish I did not have to contact support by the person that respond did so fast and friendly. It turned out not to be an issue with the app. The app is small and fast works great.

  91. Taylor Foster-avatar

    It works great for being free. Paying is worth it if you reeeally wanna know stats and the data over a greater period of time.

  92. Honey Waghela-avatar

    It is worst launcher app! Because it always shows "purchase"... You loves more money only but NOT help us to be comfortable. 👎👎👎 I hate it! I uninstall immediately now!

    Been rocking this launcher for some months now. I really enjoy it not overcomplicating thing while enchanting stock Android standards! Just lately Pixel devices have had unlocked the new gesture navigation for custom launchers. Recent patch has enabled integration with this mode, and now the launcher is a perfect option for Pixel users looking for a bit more freedom than they get from the stock launcher.

  94. Fhemi A-avatar

    I just regret buying the paid version, Too many customization makes it clumsy and the hide app option is the worst have seen on any launcher it is totally useless on this launcher. The main feature most people look out for is how they can hide and secure certain apps on the smartphone. please work on that if you want go top.

  95. Richard Farias-avatar

    Oh no! What did I do? This app just keeps asking for more and more money. There are launchers out there that do the same without costing so much. I would have felt better if they would have just charged me an out right price instead of nickel and diming me for more and more. I should have known better.

  96. Walter Miani-avatar

    Very cool but widget don't seem to work well. They're kinda stuck. Oneplus 7t.

  97. Matthew Blood-avatar

    I love the customization, BUT after paying for the full version, I can't even use Google in the search bar of the dock without paying again!? The search bar is THEMED with the Google logo, but defaults to Bing. This is insane.

    You buy or you remove... That's the experience with the free version is just a complete deal breaker... My case, REMOVE

    Great app! Usability is fabulous. Haven't figured out how to have full gesture features in Android 10 with it though.

    Updating my review from 2018 for 2020. It's still the best launcher with its cool customizations and performance. I migrated from Nova Launcher to this. Thanks!
