  1. Keep your launcher very, very fast.

    While I love all the add ons people are suggesting I would hate to see Apex Launcher go through the typical 3rd party Android launcher cycle of working great when it first comes out but then getting bogged down and buggy in future releases when trying to cater to everyone suggestions for improvement.

    Very fast and extremely smooth is what I look at when installing a launcher. Not a crazy amount of features that I may or may not use.

    • Better and simpler App Drawer

      1. Folders on Drawer: drag and drop apps into the folder created on the drawer like TouchWiz UX. (NOT like Nova where you have to select the apps you want in a folder.)

      2. Arrange apps in the drawer like the TouchWiz. I don't want my apps sorted alphabetically. I want the apps I use more often together!

      For me this is much more convenient than tabs etc... Please, please take a look at the app drawer options on the Samsung Galaxy S3. If you do that a I'll ditch TouchWiz and buy your pro launcher!

      • ability to arrange apps into pages like touch wiz 4

        Touchwiz 4 has an option to add pages. In touchwiz 4 Apps don't necessarily need to fill an entire page before a new page can be used. It would also be nice to have an option to add folders in the app drawer.

        • 1. Custom grid size of app drawer (rows and columns), 2. Icons labels for the dock icons, 3. App drawer tabs

          1. Ability to change the number of rows and columns of the app drawer
          2. Ability to add labels on the icons of the dock
          3. Ability to change the look of the tabs of the app drawer with icons. Now they are shown with letters.

            • Customize apps icons and names in drawer

              An ability to customize the apps' icons and names in drawer. Like in homescreen. You can rewrite the actual "hidden apps" list and convert it in an app list, where we can modify name, icon, and an option to hide it in drawer.

              • Ability to 'edit applications' in App Drawer

                Having the ability to rename and change the icons of applications in the application drawer, like what Nova Launcher has now, is something that I would really like to see.

                • Homescreen profiles

                  Ability to setup different homescreen profiles, (such as work, home, and travel) that allows a user to have different customizable screen configurations (widgets, shortcuts, wallpaper) that can be saved and easily switched between. Example: A work profile might have a work appropriate wallpaper such as the company logo, corporate email widget on the homescreen, and quick contact shortcuts in the dock bar at the bottom of the screen. Home profile might have a music widget, gallery widget, phone and messaging shortcuts in the dock bar, and a sports team wallpaper. Travel profile might have maps and navigation shortcuts and widgets…

                  • Free resizing of widgets (ignore grid)

                    Background: It is useful to have 5x4 for instance, but many widgets are not ready for that and they are garbled / miss some information.

                    It would be a killer feature (nobody has it, right?) to allow free resizing of widgets (or with different, much finer grid: let's say 10x10 or more). I don't see big problem in that since the overlapping has been already implemented.

                    • Galaxy S3 screen transition

                      It would be awesome to have that transition integrated in the launcher.

                      • Double tap to turn off screen

                        Would it be possible to add the option to turn off the screen when doing a double tap while staying at a homescreen? I think it requires root but i would be an amazing feature.

                        • Support for Backing up Home Screen Widget Layout

                          Currently Apex backs up only the icons and their hierarchy i.e. nested icons in folders. Required is a complete home screen layout backup and restore.

                          • Multiple Homescreen Wallpapers

                            We need the ability to set different wallpapers per homescreen. The launchers being release to the Play Store in the recent months are all containing this feature. Apex is failing behind in its updates and ability to stay current with features available in different launchers.

                            This is a must have fore me; Or its time I switch to another Launcher (Yes I know this matters not to the developer as he/she already has my money)

                            • Hide Drawer tabs

                              It would be nice to have an option to hide all the tabs in the drawer, so it would look more like KitKat.

                              • Dock Icons should have a reflection. Example inside.

                                I think that a reflection in the dock icons adds a very polished look to the launcher. It would definitely give it a one up over its main competitor, Nova launcher.

                                Example:

                                • Remove "Feeling Lucky" icon from pro version.

                                  I have no problem with the unobtrusive "feeling lucky" button as a revenue source in the free version, but putting it in the paid version is tacky and earning you a ton of 1-star reviews on the play store.

                                  • Different widget layouts for portrait and landscape

                                    Coming from maemo it would be good to have seperate layouts for portrait and landscape, so you can have odd number grids without distortion or losing a row

                                    • Extremely useful!: Every App only either on the homescreen or in the drawer

                                      This would make the drawer really clean. For example the telephone App is always in the dock and there's no need to be in the drawer.
                                      Hiding Apps is no option because it takes much time to select new Apps. So this would be a great, easy and a clean way to organize the phone.
