    THis is a very neat launcher for android. I highly recommend you try it. it will take 10 minutes to get used to it but provides great functionality. looks unique and classy. If you have used Google Gesture Search app before, this is similar.

    Made by Nokia btw.

    Really don't like it ..... Tried it quite a few times and it just doesn't do anything for me aesthetically or productively either.

    I don't like it either.

    In my opinion no launcher on a smartphone should take 10 minutes to get used to. You should be able to use it immediately, and then if desired go deeper for more advanced functionality (e.g., Nova).

    I tried it, uninstalled it not long after.

    I know it's intended to be simple and convenient, but it feels more crippling.

    I'm currently using it and for some reason I really like it. :eek: I do wish there was more customization available, but I'm pretty happy with it at the moment.

    I'll go back to Nova Launcher eventually.

    I'm not convinced that a launcher that moves things around on me is going to be a good thing. I've arranged my home screens in a way that makes sense to me. Whenever I want to launch something, it is in the same place no matter what time of day. I don't know if having to look for items in different places at different times of the day is something that benefits me. Also, what happens to all of my widgets?

    I tried it for about 10 minutes. Uninstalled and back to Apex Pro. Does everything I need and then some.

    I lasted about 10 minutes as well and returned to stock S5 after.
