Excellent launcher, nice touch, lots of options, better than Nova Launcher (alt least it gives all Nova Launcher Pro options for free). It suits me perfect.

Would like some more funtions in the app drawer; tab icon options 'app search' (truncating displayed apps as you type) & 'app shortcut', also ability to have multiple tab icons. Also an option to have a pop up menu rather than drag-to-add for long press on app, could include: add to homescreen, edit, search in play store, app info, uninstall.
