Worth every penny, bought it to support developer. This is one of those developers, that should be a role model, for others to follow.

No longer can recommend. Tried the latest version and still the same issues. Grid stays at 6 columns by 4 rows even though i set it to 4 by 3. Cant add more than 24 apps. Wish I could get the 3 or four months old version back that worked much better. .......... Updated tablet to 4.4 and updated launcher. Now all my apps were gone on home screen. Added apps and after 20 apps it started to fail pinning apps. Also the grid does not hold to column/row settings. I have set it to 4 col. 3 rows it made a grid of 5x4 and more than 20 apps start displaying failed to pin app. Bought a while back and last revision I had worked great. This upgrade destroyed the launcher to the point of being useless. Uninstalling it until I see a fix. Nexus 7, 2013 model.

Excellent. Will be an excellent launcher when it is finished. I am using the pro version. The problem I am having is the disappearing of tiles when trying to arrange them. Please fix it. I am using Samsung galaxy note pro 12.2 with kitkat.

Not bad but needs work. I like it but has some issues. The worst of them is that I can create a widget but icant remove it now that its on the screen and using the clear widgets option in the settings doesnt seem to work. Also after messing around with this for a couple minutes I can't seen to add anymore widgets or app tiles because I get errors. I bought it to support development but the price is a bit high compared to similar apps. Keep working on it.
