Google looks to be regretting it’s earlier decision to take down the good old Apex launcher as the tech company has brought the lion back into the zoo.
Apex launcher, you must have heard of it was one of the greatest launchers available on the App store, but it became redundant and hence phased out after it suffered pure and abject neglect from its developers.
The great news, however, is that the tech company has woken to its responsibilities as fans of the popular launcher can rest assured that it is coming back to the market.
The tech company confirmed the return of the app via its Medium blog post which announced a detailed roadmap for the new development.
According to the blog post, the tech company revealed that there is a new development team in place which means that the launcher will not only be revived but will be getting a facelift and some other updates to go with. The tech company further revealed that the first update for the launcher would be released in May coming almost two years after the application was last updated in June 2015.
The tech team further revealed that the update would come with support for the latest Android OS 7.0 Nougat and in its word, “beyond,” which means the team will also be working hard on making the launcher compatible with the next big thing in the Android world, the Android ‘O’ OS.
Developers of the Apex launcher also opened the UserVoice page which allows users to request and vote on possible new features to be added to the application along with the update.
