As more and more device owners in the Google and Motorola families await Android 4.4 KitKat's arrival OTA, many other handset owners are looking at a long, long wait before they will even hear about the possibility of when they might get an update. Never fear, another alternative launcher has just got a KitKat makeover, meaning you can get transparent system bars on your phone right now.
Apex Launcher is one of the most popular launchers around right now, and for good reason. While the new version is still in beta version, that means a release candidate can't be far away. If you want to try it out you just need to become a member of the Apex Launcher beta group and then download the APK and get busy.
Other than the transparent system bars and new icons, there's not much else new in the beta version 2.2 that you wouldn't already know and love from the regular Apex Launcher. There's tons of customization options, resizable icons and app drawer layouts, cool transitions, gesture controls and more.
Have you tried the beta version yet? How do you like transparent system bars?
