    • Save icon and widget layouts between portrait and landscape views

      I find it annoying that when I have set up all my widgets and icons when viewing in landscape and then switch to portrait all the icons and widgets are in the wrong place. It would be great if Apex Launcher could remember the location of each item in both landscape and portrait.

        • "Anywhere" widget or shortcut on homescreen

          The ability to move and place widgets or apps shortcut anywhere on home screen instead of following the grid. Sometimes it's hard to customize when the icons snap into the grid layout and look "off" when designing specific wallpaper or screen setup. Mainly for customization.

            • Option to disable/enable the app drawer MIUI stile

              Like in MIUI launcher, which has no app drawer, all icons located on the homescreens and can be sorted in folders. There are handreds of thousands of MIUI followers which would be glad to jump on an Apex wagon if it will offer them a taste of “apples" :) on any ICS rom. Just let people choose to have or disable the app drawer and you will have the ultimate launcher. I would gladly pay for not having a drawer, and i'm sure many more fell the same.

              • Font size and style options

                Some other launchers, have the option in launcher settings, to change the size & style of the font throughout the system. How about it Apex?

                      • URGENT - LG G2 knock on/off feature support

                        I have the LG G2 phone which uses a double tap on the screen to toggle the display of the screen. This is not a gimmick feature it's needed since the power button is placed on the back of the phone and Apex launcher does not have a behavior that supports this feature when you double tap on the screen so please add support for this feature in your next update as it's desperately needed by all LG G2 users who also use Apex Launcher.

                        • Keep the Low memory and power consumption!

                          Existing Apex is still very modern. Nice features are welcome but don't overload with features that already exist in other Launchers.
                          Above all keep it clean and lean.

                          • Transparent status bar and on screen key bar

                            Transparent status and on screen keys bar like the stock home launcher on the new Razr HD, and maybe allow the lower on screen key bar to disapear and reappear when screen is touched like it does when watching youtoube, the would give you the full home screen.

                                    • Remove the lock / unlock conformation

                                      One of my favorite features is the ability to lock desktop. I used to find icons that had inadvertently moved or been deleted. Lock desktop prevents that. Since the locked state is always present in the menu and it is a single tap away it shouldn't need confirmation.

                                      • Please fix homescreen redraw issue

                                        I'm constantly having screen redraws on my Galaxy S3 after returning to the launcher from within an app. It's been so bothersome lately that I tried Nova, and never once a redraw (blank screen, then the widgets start to populate the screen). I'm a pro user, please fix this issue. Both launchers use the same RAM footprint (54.5MB) on my phone, so I know I'm not running out of memory. Everything else is PERFECT with this launcher. What am I supposed to say when an iPhone buddy sees this happen on my phone? Thanks.
