Apus is a fee Android launcher that was launched in June last year by a Chinese organization named Apus technologies. Within a year of its launch, this app has managed to get 100 million downloads. Furthermore, the app’s rating of 4.5 proves that Apus launcher is better than its competitors. I discovered Apus while I was exploring the top apps category on the Google play store. This launcher is fast, powerful and it offers several customization options.
You can change the wallpapers, effects, theme easily. Apus can be used on low-end hardware equipped Android devices that support OpenGL graphics technology.
Whether it’s low budget Lenovo phone or high-end Galaxy Note EDGE, the performance of the Apus launcher will be the same on all devices. This is the main reason why Apus has registered millions of downloads and has been added to the list of best Android apps on the play store.
