    Great effort, very stable and professional. A nice set of upgrades beyond the standard AOSP launcher. For me, it's still missing the ability to change a single icon (without installing an icon pack). Until then I can't make it my daily launcher.

    I really like this on my moto x. Keeps that Kit Kat feel with some extra features. My battery did do a little worse with this but not by much. I would recommend this to anyone with Google now launcher, it's that with so much more. One feature would be nice is to be able to select orientation so when using on a tablet when turning side ways it will change to landscape mode on home screen.

    Needs a few tweaks. Much better than nova but grid size cannot be changed in the home screen.
