    Is any one else using Apex launcher and having the same problem? It seems like it is redrawing almost every time I go back to the home screen after exiting an app.

    Is there any way to fix this or somehow lock the launcher into memory to keep Android from killing it? Or do I just have to wait for an update?

    I use Apex but don't get that problem. Well, not often.

    Maybe the apps you're using are hogging the memory? It seems to happen to me when I have several things going on at once.

    I tried a few different launchers and settled on Nova. For a while. But Apex just does so much more. I still prefer Nova's page transitions though!

    I'm using the stock launcher and currently setting up HUBs with ADW Ex and don't have the problem.
    I'm using Multilive wallpaper that redraws a lot. Is that what you're seeing?

    Same problem here on my HTC Sensation, i also see some times horizontal thin lines.
    I also use it on my Asus Transformer and there without any problems.
    Both are on ICS.

    I think i found the solution.
    Change the minimum scroll time to 20 in the settings.
    Both on Home Screen and App drawer.

    Second Update.
    I screamed to loud and to quick.
    Yes it helps a little.
    Then i also installed Launcher Pro EX and same problem with this one.
    Very choppy and a lot of redraws.

    In my opinion it is ICS that makes this horrible.

    Try turning off auto-rotate, set it to portrait only and see if that makes it any better.
