Compared to launchers like TSF Shell Pro and SPB Shell 3D, Apex Launcher is more low-key about its awesomeness. It's a minimalistic yet highly functional launcher that allows you to do pretty much whatever the hell you want to your ICS homescreens. While it may lacK SPB Shell's psychadelic stylings and TSF's insane list of new features, we can imagine using this launcher a lot more. Similar to Nova Launcher, which was released a few weeks back, Apex is a bit more elegant and polished, with similar features. Here's a short run-down of some of the most significant features of Apex Launcher:
All the widgets are re-sizeable.
Homescreen transitions are completely customizable.
Up to 9 homescreens available
Infinite scrolling for homescreen, drawer and dock.
Hide elements (like that pesky Google search bar)
Choose different folder preview styles
Use different kinds of gestures to navigate.
