    I loved this app. But once I upgraded to Android 4.3 and 4.4, the app's icon won't go away from the status bar. Nothing is more annoying than a permanent notification that you can't disable. Please allow icon to be disabled or made invisible.

    I did like it but I think the developer has abandoned it? No updates in ages.

    There are plenty of other options out there such as Glovebox and Sidebar.

    This was and is a great side bar launcher, however an update added an animation to the icons filling the bar which slows down your access to the apps. It seems the developer has now stopped supporting this app & this feature will never change.

    I like this launcher, however, it needs work. The auto hide rarely works correctly. It needs to be updated.

    Only complaint is to have the ability to change icons one by one instead of having to use full themes.

    But on the next update you might sort out a small problem where I set touch for middle right and when phone is switched on its on top right
