Review APUS Launcher - Small, Fast
Decent but dated launcher

Simple interface, minimalist design
Portrait only, lags, not powerful enough
APUS Launcher－Small, Fast for Android is a decent launcher, but currently only supports portrait mode. The interface is a tad dated and static, but it has some innovative ideas.
APUS Launcher－Small, Fast is definitely compact. It loads fairly quickly though I did experience hangs while navigating from one launcher screen to the next, and also while launching specific apps from the interface. However, I liked how it placed all available widgets onto and easy to read list.
The launcher automatically detects what apps you have installed and groups them into like categories for easy access. The selections appear on the top 2/3 of the screen, wile the bottom 1/3 displays popular apps in each category that are being used near you.
This is a decent launcher, but I hate when they take over my wallpaper and set it to something I didn't want or ask for. Overall, this one feels pretty dated and needs to be developed.
