Apex Launcher user reviews :
I’m a Holo Launcher user and I’m quite impress with Apex. Was about to purchase the Pro version but my card is expired. Will purchase it once I got my replacement. You have plans on making a simple lockscreen? Would appreciate if you would.
It is such a good app.. It helps to modify your home screen really well. Makes your home Screen really flexible. Android OS should include all of the features of this app in the next version.
I keep trying other launchers but always seem to cone back to this one. It feels so much like stock and keeps that lightweight feel to it. Keeps doing awesome stuff with it please 🙂
