Hands down my most used apl After my home screen, this is the most used app I have. After having it I shudder to think how I could launch apps anyway else! 10 stars! Just wish there were more updates and more features, a la Linux Zeitgeist

No SMS Search. CANT Create Shortcut. I have couple of launchers with Apex set as the default. It does not create shortcut on any of them. Please fix and add SMS search. Thanks. Note 3 jb4.3
