    I’m still a fan of the Apex Launcher, but started using the Google Experience Launcher with built in Google Now and love it. I wish Apex or Nova would copy the Google Experience Launcher with Google Now.

    The only thing missing is the ability to change app icons. Would love to apply some sort of minimal icon set to go along with this launcher (without having to rely on another app to do it).
