    "Apex Launcher is an app for the tech savvy only. If you are happy with your out of the box options for your phone or tablet, you do not need this app, but if you just can't it to look or be organized just the way you want, this is a fairly effective way to go for me! It doesn't use much memory, works fast and has a lot of useful options. It can be a bit buggy, though, so watch out."

    "Although I own an Android smartphone, I've always loved the design aesthetic of the Windows phone UI. I'm glad to have found the Launcher 8 WP style because it's exactly what I wanted. Basically, it allows you to utilize a UI inspired by the design on Windows phone on your Android device. With a few clicks, I'm able to block ads, customize and modify the size of tiles, download themes and wallpapers and access all of my phone's important features efficiently. I love the overall look and how clean and quick it makes my smartphone. Definitely one of the better Android launchers available, particularly if you want an experience reminiscent of Windows phones."

    "I just received a new Android phone for my birthday and I wanted to find the best android launcher apps for my phone. A coworker of mine recommended the app Arrow Launcher. I decided to give it a try and must say that I was somewhat disappointed. I think that the premise of the app is good and definitely needed, but I just think I was underwhelmed. I feel like it doesn't do what it promises (faster speeds, less battery consumption, less memory, etc...) All in all, I would pass on this app if you're considering it."

    "For a $4.99 app I assume I'm getting a lot of value- and that's exactly what I'm getting with the Nova Launcher Prime, a stock Android launcher. The Nova Launcher is smooth and does exactly what I want it to do. In a launcher, this is invaluable. I don't mind spending money for such a great product."

    "I would definitely put Evie Launcher in top best launchers considering all the customization it gets and the speeds. I would definitely use it over the ones that come with your phone which clutters and makes your phone slower than anything. Evie lets you make your phone to what you like."

    "Having a launcher for your phone can be a great asset if you want to make it overall faster. I've tried several versions that are available, but most seem to not perform quite as they are described. I was told about EverythingMe Launcher for Android and decided to give it a try. I'm really glad I did because it is a really great launcher - I have had any problems with it yet and it is performing as described. Well worth looking into if you're looking for a great launcher for the Android platform. "
