Apex Launcher has bumped up to version 2.0, bringing in a host of new features to both the free and pro versions of the app. Free users who make the leap will find various improvements to the interface, updated translations, and the option to set the duration of vibrations. The pro version now allows users to place folders in the app drawer, but the star of the show is its integration with the new Apex Notifier.

Apex Notifier is not a standalone app, but an extension that works both with Apex Launcher and DashClock Widget. Apex Launcher Pro users who install Apex Notifier will see unread counts appear as badges atop various application icons, including:

  • Missed Calls
  • Unread SMS
  • Calendar Appointments
  • Gmail
  • HTC Mail
  • Samsung Email
  • K-9 Mail
  • Battery Level
  • Stock Email
  • Google Talk
  • Google Voice
  • Starbucks

You are free to tweak the size and color of notifications, and you get to have a say in which apps badges will appear on. If you aren't already a convert to Apex Launcher, this latest release just might change your mind. You can try Apex Launcher for free below, but you'll need to pay $3.99 for the pro version if you want to take Apex Notifier for a spin as well.
