Great but could do better This is a great launcher. Running it on my Note 4 and haven't come across any performance issues as such, however the issue with arranging the tiles needs to be fixed. If you choose to move one, it either moves several together or if you choose to move one from the far columns then it pushes that tile to the first column for rearranging. [PLEASE FIX] The launcher could also use a better working weather live tile .

Ripoff I paid for this app and yet all it does is display a huge banner that says this is unlicensed, yet the about shows it is unlocked and when i click on go pro it takes me to this app page that says i own it. Ripoff. I wasted my money and cannot get a refund. Gee, thanks. Hope you're enjoying my money

Great innovation (we can do more) I really cherish this launcher. Currently using galaxy mega 6.3 1. PLEASE kindly fix the issue that prevents user from arranging the tiles to preferred location (if I decide to drag a tile to a location, it drags along 2 or 3 other tiles thereby deranging the whole layout). 2. You may consider providing option to "backup launcher settings" just like the one in "square home tablet" 3. Ability to maintain tiles icon 4. Notification on tiles like gmail and message ..I like the recent improvements keep it going

Please add, 1).Hide installed app icon with password protected feature. 2). Add search button on screen to get faster search for applications.
