    Would love it if you had the option to disable the dock. Everything else is a thing of beauty. Keep the good work.

    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.
