Boost version of Marshmallow a jank version?

Just updated last night. Boost version is missing some of the features of 6.0 that I have read about!

The app drawer is supposed to scroll vertically - mine still horizontal. I'm guessing this is because Boost hi-jacks the launcher with their "Home" launcher? Would Google Now launcher make it like 6.0?

System UI Tuner - suppose to hold down on gear in notifications area in for 5 seconds to activate. No love on Boost for this?

Also, it recognizes I have a 32GB SD card and only using 3.5GB of it, but won't let me move any of the movable apps there. (I'll give details and ask about this on another post).
