  1. Customizable icon order app drawer

    The user would be able to rearrange icons and folders directly on app drawer. Similar to the TouchIWiz launcher for the S III

    • App Drawer: hide all tabs

      Some may like to use multiple tabs for their applications, but I don't want to use any.

      I would like to see all my applications (default tab) without losing space at the top of the screen for this single and unnecessary tab.

      In the settings we can deactivate Tabs (widgets, downloaded apps,...) but an error message comes when we try to deactivate ALL tabs. It would make sense that deactivating all tabs would display a simple app drawer with all our applications (Gingerbread style)

      Thanks !

        • App drawer icons separated alphabetically

          Here's an example of what it could look like: http://i.imgur.com/Nskv2mp.png
          It's basically a combination of 'Vertical continuous' and 'Vertical list'.

          I find Vertical list to cause too much scrolling and Vertical continuous(regular mode) is just cluttered. So this is the best of two worlds.

            • Extended support for Apex notifier [Almost any app]

              Now with Android 4.3, the notification listener service is available which should make unread counts of any app possible without the app's own support and without accessibility access. Please add support for unread counts for almost every app.

                        • Password on Folders

                          On first versions of MIUI there was a option to pass or hide with pass the applications inside a folder. That was a lost when they remove it.

                            • add more transition effects

                              The transition effect that the galaxy devices have, is a really nice transition effect. In the launcher "go launcher" the effect is called glass. I had go launcher and I don't really like it apex is a much better app. Its only that specific transition I really like. Please add this and more to apex launcher. Thanks you

                              • assign default app to a folder, gesture/long press to open

                                I currently have a few folders with apps in them. For example a News/Tech folder with tapatalk/flipboard/news/more. 9/10 times i use the folder to open tapatalk, but sometimes i want to open a different app.

                                I suggest to assign a default app to a folder (tap), and a gesture (swipe up for example) to open the folder.

                                This can also work great for a camera folder. Mine currently holds: paper cam, hdr, after focus, pano, goggles and the stock camera app. Would be great if a tap would just open the stock camera app and a swipe would show me…

                                  • Landscape mode: rotating icons/widgets individually ("transpose") instead of the whole home screen layout

                                    It has been challenging how to make landscape mode more usable because:
                                    1. arranging home screen is a time consuming task. user would prefer doing once only, but not repeating for all orientation
                                    2. tablet screen is rectangle, not square. so after changing orientation, the spacing, margin and etc all changed

                                    It seems that currently Apex Launcher tries to let user to define the row x column size for each of the landscape/portraits mode. it's a workaround but there are some problems with this
                                    - users need to make the best layout by try and error as they have totally…

                                    • Create a "task manager" widget for Apex launcher like the one in TouchWiz!

                                      Create a "task manager" widget for Apex launcher like the one in TouchWiz (with a simple counter showing open apps). Because it's very confusing in ICS to distinguish opened apps from closed.
                                      It's true that you can see recent apps when you long press home button, but it's hard to tell which is still actually open in background and which is not!
                                      God bless you!
