Problems Have the donate version. I'm having problems with the app right now. The sidebar keeps on disappearing after some time. No idea what's causing it.

exactly what I need the only bug I've noticed is that if you're using apex launcher and you switch between a few apps via the app drawer shortcut in glove box - after 4 or 5 times it will bring up a blank drawer. not sure if this is a bug on your end or apex but I figured I'd let you know. keep up the good work.

So far so good... All is well so far (except the "unread plug-in" doesn't work on my device... Not a biggie though as I'll just move those apps to my homescreen as my plug-in for Nova works).. Only have had it a few days though. Will re-rate in a few weeks once I've been able to tinker with it. Thanks for your hard work. (7/31-my rating from 4 to 3 stars.)Unfortunately; the dev isn't too quick with any updates. Also don't expect a quick answer to any questions asked, or any answer, that is.

Best shortcut launcher - includes widgets in pro version! Necessary time-saver! Installed side bar with widgets and setting toggles. My home screens have been so crowded, and this makes them so much cleaner and more efficient. I estimate it has already saved me 30 minutes a day. Thank you so much to the developer!
