Not Bad


good


A past day, I had given 2 stars and down greaded to ver3.3.3 because of the disaster of update. But I bought a new phone, I've tried to use the latest version again. This app's default theme is still not refine for easier to see icons and somethings but the theme "clock" is so cool! Of cause in usefully, there is no problem. I re-love Apex and give 5 stars again! And please never blow away our app's settings again when some update Apex!


This launcher has some parts that have never been fixed before. 1st of all, the desktop layout often gets broken. Even if I have a backup of it, Apex can't restore completely my home screen. (Especially widgets can't be done at all) 2nd, when I update the Apex, I can no longer add new icons from another app. (For example, applications such as 'shortcut maker') It'll be able to make icons if I rollback to the old version. Good app, but sucks. :(


YOU CAN'T TRUST APEX OR THE PEOPLE BEHIND IT ANY MORE. I didn't install Hiboard on my phone. I didn't ask for Hiboard to be installed on my phone. Nobody warned me it was going to be installed and enabled by default. This is no way to treat paying customers! You either die after delivering the best launcher on Android or you live long enough to see yourself become the Apex developers. So, I've installed Lightning Launcher instead. Bye, Apex -it was fun but now you suck.


Most of the bugs are gone with the new v4. However, after the last update I constantly see a notification in the task bar that Apex is running. The only way to get rid of the notification is to default my launcher to something else. edit: this issue has been fixed and apex has been running well. edit: when adding a chrome shortcut from chrome, add to home screen option, the new shortcut opens to a blank chrome screen. i tested with default pixel launcher and add to home screen works properly


The icons are smaller in this version and there seems to be a bug. When you try to make them bigger, they actually get really really tiny and the number of rows changes too. I had to recreate four groups. Being careful to save backups from now on. ____________________________ The above review was last year. They have fixed the icon size problem and now Apex Launcher works perfectly!


Want Adware and Spyware installed without notice? Download Apex Launcher!! Frankly it's a shame this formerly useful, basic app now genuinely makes the user experience significantly worse. Screenshotting my layout and installing a user friendly alternative this weekend.


its a great launcher. wish i was able to make apps category. and more status bar options one problem. when hide notification bar is on the tansparent bar doesn't work. shows black bar frim top abd wallpaper is not full screen. please fix it. can we have navigation buttons hidden option without using 3rd party.


Was great, untill the "long awated major update" - now it forces Portrait orientation, and doesn't pay attention to the fact that my tablet is locked in Landscape and PERMANENTLY MOUNTED IN MY TRUCK THAT WAY. PLEASE, PLEASE don't don't that. I love everything else about Apex, but it's useless to me now because you've forced Portrait orientation... I don't understand the obsession developers have with telling us we have to use Portrait... Landscape is much more natural for tablets.


overall good, dont get to worryed about ads, they rarely appear. just wish that it had all gestures unlocked by defalt. they make my life soo muvh easyer. defenatly better than my old one and a keeper. great job just please unlock all gestures by defalt and thats my only complaint. and lifetime for just undef £7, what a steel!


Horrible support/ no response to 3 emails about Apex Launcher Pro and Fancy Wickets Pro versions. I have been using both products for several years and have been pleased with both apps until recently. I suspect that Fancy Widgets Pro, doesn't work at all anymore since my phone was upgraded to Android 8.0.0. It still works with Android 7.0.0. They have started adding in advertising into Apex Launcher Pro despite the payment for the ad-free "Pro" Version. Do Not use APEX Launcher or other apps if you think you might need some support!!


Apex Launcher has completely erased my layout. All settings are gone. Completely erased! Without my permission. Yeah it happened; EXPLAIN TO ME WHY THIS HAPPENED WHILE IM DOWNLOADING LIGHTNING LAUNCHER!! YOU OWE ME AN Explanation!


No advantage over Nova that i can see. They also managed to charge me twice somehow. It's no big deal but very irritating.


Seems like it keeps changing some settings back to default after i change them. Pretty sure i set it so new apps wouldnt add themselves to my homescreen, and yet they do it anyway. Alot of misc settings I changed for the app drawer changes themselves back too. And the UI seems to get laggy and slow once you're using more than 2 apps at a time. Paid for premium when i downloaded. I want my money back but i think its past the refund period or whatever. EDIT: wish it had an A-Z list app drawer


Dock icon spacing is too narrow in landscape orientation - should be configurable like in portrait orientation. Wondering if this will ever be fixed? My phone spends most of its time in landscape orientation. The Apex search bar functionality is horrible, so I replaced it with the original Google search bar. Gave the Apex search bar an honest chance, but couldn't stand it any longer.


Excellent launcher. But pinch in gesture to launch an app is not working properly on my Samsung A50. It works for sometime and then stops working. To make it work again I have to relaunch apex. Pls fix it soon.


I have used Apex for years, and even bought the pro version. I installed it on other people's devices when they needed a customized launcher for accessibility reasons. Why, oh why, did you have to go and ruin it by turning it into an advertising platform?


This used to be awesome. But the update that was pushed out in August 2018 totally wrecked it. No more pinch-zoom to see all of your home screenshas really ruined it for me. On top of that, the update overwrote a bunch of settings I had been using for two years. November 10, 2018 New update totally screwed my phone... Still love the launcher, but wish the developer would trouble shoot the new version before pushing them out. if i could be sure that the pro version would be better, i'd upgrade.


New version is useless. How do I go back to previous version which was 5 stars. Fixed. Using paid version. Full screen adds are a bit much in free version.
