    You guys are doing tremendous work and working hard for providing better ui but whether it is a paid launcher or free,i think you should charge some money for that…..

      No market\video\audio\pics in ram – so we have faster launcher. If author removes those things from go launcher – it will be faster too. For looking updates, watching videos\pics\audio – there is specific apps, that can be removed from ram.

    Hi, in beta3, when I try to create a folder with the dock shortcut, the animation for choose the apps for the folder is very laggy. The rest of Launcher is very fast and stable. Could you fix that problem tha I have mentioned. Thanks, and great job!!

    Could you make an option to enable or disable the effects when you press an icon?? I think so it will be faster.

    Thanks, and great work.

    This launcher is wonderful. It needs go widget type widgets though.

    Wonderful launcher!!! Very fast , beautiful and easy to use.
    But….I have a lot of battery drain even in standby when I don’t use the phone.

    I have a Gs2 with Ollos2 creature 4.0.4.

    With Apex launcher I have less battery drain.

    Work about it because I love this launcher!! ;-) thanks!!
