Apex has merged JB code in their latest beta and appears to be trying to add the JB features all these launchers lack.

Only the stock launcher is missing the rotate feature.

Non-stock launchers have a long-press menu that allows you to add widgets, shortcuts, etc.
Yeah, I have that beta version of apex and I beleive it uses the stock JB launcher as a base. So it has that new feature where icons move out of your way that you mentioned.
