Finest kind!

I've done it .... Go LAUNCHER EX is definitely 'ex' now !!!! And so far so good, liking the clean looks and here's hoping it doesn't follow others, but leads the way to something bigger and better. Have used this Developers' apps before and they have always been quality, this looks like it will be along the same lines..... Mega happy for now :)PS One question, I removed google search bar from home screen, when i turn to landscape it re-appears ... not major problem, just wish it didn't !!

Nice! Material design still needs some polish. Some switches are in blue instead of orange, wallpaper picker gives link to system's default wallpaper picker under the name 'com.android...', Glass scroll effect for desktop is buggy when you are already on default page and trigger show previews activity followed by jump to default page activity, it highlights the page and otherwise it doesn't... Sorry too many bug reports under 'Nice' :p but the point is, even with above minor glitches it deserves a 'Nice' :)

Just sweet! It does what the most of the launchers does but does it great. It got everything i want. Please add 3 and 4 finger swipe. That would be great!
