    i upgraded to ics 2 days ago, most things seemed fine, i decided to put a launcher on my phone, i usually just used stock but thought id give it a go.

    after looking around i went with apex, looks good etc..

    i have had 2 small issues though both relating to sms:

    just before i got a text and i went to open my msgs and the phone just froze and went black, after about 10 secs it said swype cannot open and i had to restart the phone to get it working again.

    also my sms icon no longer shows that i have texts, it would show a 1 or 2 on the icon before (yes it still worked fine after my ics upgrade, its since putting apex on the numbers have gone)

    is this just a feature of apex or should i still be seeing the number of texts i have on the icon?

    when i first installed apex the original sms icon didnt function and i havd to drag the icon from the apps draw onto the homescreen and that one worked.

    anyway are the above issues known issues or am i doing something wrong?

    You could try clearing data and cache for Apex (manage applications/downloaded/apex launcher).

    If that doesn't solve it, do the problems go away if you uninstall apex launcher?

    Do they reappear if you reinstall it?

    If so, you might be better off contacting the developer as it sounds like a problem with apex.
