    Apex Launcher's review

    Published: 2012-05-21, by .

    Apex Launcher is an alternative launcher for ICS

    • HOLO-layout
    • Lots of specific Apex options
    • Transitions and effects
    • Runs smoothly
    • Needs more effects
    • No themes

    "Smooth ICS Launcher"

    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 (Pro version brings even more options, check them out in its review). We can only recommend you to give a go and see it for yourself. Highly recommendable.

    How do you disable the old hanging TW Launcher ? I think it has something to do with the " Unfortunately the process Android.process.acore has stopped " message which keeps popping up and hanging my phone. Can't seem to rectify it even after following all the advice given on the net. I am using Android 4.0.4. Might updating to a newer version correct this ?
