    I have already installed but it does not work on my note 4 because I can not resize text that I want to use and I can't use long text. Plz fix it.

    This is no spam or hype. I looked for a way to add simple texts icons to my home screen for a couple weeks before finding this app. It works perfectly. By the way, I used a custom launcher to select the icons(buzz launcher)
