    Those of you on Apex 2.0 GB build
    im asking a specific question, im on ADW EX
    and whenever i hit my app drawer icon, it doesnt load, instead its giving me a vibration feeling like im hitting a soft button mean to be home/back/menu/search (if you dont know what i mean, any android device that doesnt have dedicated buttons, for menu,home,back,and search)
    its like whenever i hit it, if i hit low enough i get this, even when im directly on it, it seems as if i have to hit somewhat above anything at the botton of my screen, even my spacebar...

    just wondering if anyone else is having this issue, if you are please explain, if you did and no longer having the issue please explain

    thanks.

    Well, FWIW, your thread title does say "just read the post". So have you instructed everyone not to reply....??? :D

    I've asked for someone with the ability to view the poll to have a look, and let us know, as I don't have access to that function.

    Poll is working correctly - what's the problem, other than the poll making no sense to me whatsoever?

    I voted No just to even it up a bit.

    What was the question again?

    I had this happen to me. Not on Apex, but I somehow had the wave launcher app installed and it caused this. I don't remember installing it (which is weird), but I uninstalled it and it went away. Not sure why yours would do this though. Also, I didn't vote because I can't make up my mind. :D

    OK - so if re-installing apex (you'll uninstall first to lose all data and cache) doesn't work then a phone reset may be in order. And I presume you've already taken Step Zero: a battery pull.

    Failing that you may be developing a problem in the touchscreen.

    So - do you want the poll, not want the poll, srsly - what is the poll for?

    Does that say like: "Just go and read the post!" or "Have you just now read the post?"

    i was using the poll to see if others were having the same issue, but thankfully eman had it as well and posted how he got rid of it.

    the poll was useless, my bad
