Apex Launcher is an alternative launcher for ICS
Pro version unlocks the following features:
- Multiple configurable drawer tabs
- Unread count notifications
- Dock swipe gestures
- Two finger gestures
- More transition effects
- Batch add option for folders
- Option to merge folder contents
- Widgets in dock (1x1 only)
- Overlapping widgets...
Actually, regarding appearance, Apex Launcher is quite similar to stock ICS-launcher. However, if you take a look at its guts, you'll find enough reasons to make it your default launcher. Let's focus on them.
Thus, it's set in HOLO-layout, like ICS stock launcher. We realized at first sight that it runs smoothly: transitions between screens, launching app drawer, placing shortcuts on the home screen or launching apps. Everything seems to be boosted.
Besides its enviable performance, its strongest point is that it's high customizable. From Apex settings, you can adjust home screen, drawers, dock, folder, behaviour and advanced parameters at your whim. Likewise, once done you can backup your preset and restore it whenever you want.
Thus, you'll be able to set up to 9 homescreens and a customizable homescreen grid size. Likewise, it includes a customizable scrollable dock with up to 7 icons per page and up to 5 pages. You can set inifinite and elastic scrolling, fancy transitions effects (there are not too many though), hide apps or enable gestures. Actually it brings some interesting gestures like pinch, swipe up/down and double tap on homescreen and icons.
In a nutshell, lots and lots of options: it's even hard to write them all down here. We can only recommend you to give a go and see it for yourself. Highly recommendable.

Since updating on S5 to lollipop I cannot swipe down (behaviour settings) to display notification bar. Any suggestions?
Swipe down gesture mapped to open notifications panel is broken after vzw note 4 lollipop update as of 4/6/15. Giving 5 stars in good faith for confidence in developer. Please fix. Thank you.
Update: Down to one star. No reply after weeks of waiting. Great app until lollipop update. Now the missed call, text, email, etc notifications on the dock flicker and then disappear. Back to five stars when fixed
Been using this launcher for years. No reason to ever switch. I do have a suggestion, I would really like to add shortcuts to an app group in my app drawer to home screens........or add a folder that links to an app group. This way I don't have to add apps to folders on my home screens, I just have to sort them in the app drawer. If this could be done that would be great.
Please don't try it again with this are you feeling lucky nonsense. Remove in update or I will go back to nova launcher I do not want this I have paid for the pro version.
