Device compatibility
This launcher may or may not work correctly depending on your device and Android version. It is guaranteed to work on the Nexus 4 and 5. Sadly, AOSP Launcher3 does not support tablets due to missing code for landscape orientation. I tried to make it work as best as I could on the Nexus 7 but it is far from how Google intended the launcher to behave. I’m not expecting to create big workarounds in order to keep the code easily updatable from AOSP. Look for alternatives on the Play Store by developers that are more comfortable with changing the AOSP code.

Frequently asked questions
• The application icons on my device are not the same as on KitKat devices, what gives?
The icons do not come from the launcher, generally. Some launcher might change the icons around but that is not what Launcher+ is about.
• Why am I missing the transparent lockscreen/status bar/buttons?
Transparency is dependent on your Android version. If transparency is available KitKat Launcher+ will make use of it. Guaranteed to work on Android 4.4.

Known issues
• Icon size is locked in the drawer in landscape on tablets (to prevent issues)
• Google Search Bar does not work as intended in landscape on tablets
• On some devices the launcher just refuses to work.

Just what you need A very simple launcher. But you'll notice that nothing miss.

Trouble Hiding Apps Really nice overall but has some trouble hiding apps in the drawer. Having Chrome and Chrome Beta installed, it's impossible to hide one and not the other. Motorola's Help app also keeps coming back even though it's hidden. It would also be nice to support custom icons via icon packs and PNG files. Other than that it's a great launcher and a nice upgrade from AOSP.

Please correct the icon size bug The size of the icons are enlarged and can not be miniaturised using the icon size slider
