Hangar user reviews :

Perfect app! All complaints I have were fixed promptly. Superb implementation through and through.

  • Wow, sorry (and surprised!) to hear it’s causing you issues. Shoot me an email with a few details such as what is bugged and we’ll see if we can figure this out for you.
Will be higher rated once I get a reply So on my Nexus 5, it’s only letting me pick some apps, and not all the ones I have. Why is that? Does the app currently only support some apps, and not all?

  • Like somewhat mentioned in the Instructions, Hangar takes a few days to pick up a decent amount of app activity to work most effectively. The short answer though is that Hangar only monitors apps running in the foreground. If you haven’t launched the app it won’t be listed in Hangar until you do. Hope that helps.

Almost perfect! Simple yet versatile! If only there was a drag & drop option to rearrange the app icons. Pinning the app and changing the order with ‘Pinned app sorting’ option is all good and stuff, however it would be much more easier to have a drag & drop option. Also, it’ll be great to have all apps listed in Hangar rather than limiting them to the ones that is frequently used. Divider is a bit rectangle-ish, a more square design will make it look more presentable.
