    In my opinion, this comes right behind Nova Launcher. A great number of customization to keep your device unique, organized and functional. Tablet mode is cool!

    Honestly, I can even live with TouchWiz on my S4. But Apex brings so much customization and pure Android design. Plus, icon -- that is basically the main reason to install any kind of launcher. Its main competitor is Nova, but Apex sounds cooler and I find Apex settings are easier to configure (It's a matter of VERY high subjectivity, though)

    Fantastic launcher for all ICS devices that do not have the swanky launcher of the Google Nexus. Really fast & provides a lot of features for free for which you would have to shell out on other launchers.
