    • Replace Wunderlist app integration with Microsoft To Do app

      Now we have Wunderlist integrated, but you have plans to shut down that app. Microsoft already have new app, To Do, so it would be way more usefull to integrate that new app in the launcher. I switched from Wunder to To Do but still not using widgets on the left side screen. To Do came out few monts ago, now we all know that Wundet is going away, so convince us to use your new app integrate it in launcher. Also it would be nice to se OneNote integrated on launcher instead Notes widgets. Save the look of widget…

        • Android Wear

          Would love to see the launcher as a watchface for Android Wear, or even a launcher for it!

          • Please allow widgets without frame/box and title in the left page

            For example, I use the SeriesGuide widget (great app by the way). This widget is already "square like" widget, and to display it inside another square (with a title) is very odd and messy..

            • Multiple Feed & widget page (currently it is only one) or multiple Microsoft widget (To do list, Notes etc.) per page other than default pag

              currently Microsoft launcher offer only one widget & feed page that has multiple widgets and feed but I suggest there should be multiple pages that have more than 1 widget and feeds like "we can add to do list widget & notes on a single page which I can see by swiping left and recent activity and calender on right side of my home screen."

              • Sync launcher Todo with Microsoft todo

                Currently MS Launcher Todo only supports wunderlist. Let it support Microsoft todo as well.

                • Allow users to add a title to any of their home pages.

                  Would be a text box with user-selectable size, font, and maybe other attributes too such as fill and line characteristics.

                  • to-do feed Microsoft to-do

                    You already have Wunderlist integration on the to-do section of the feed. Why not integrate Microsoft to-do as well? 🙂

                    • Multiple Widgets in one "card" with in the feed section

                      As an example, I am a deezer user and in deezer you have the opportunity to use a widget to start an playlist directly. You do not have to open the app and scroll to the Playlist and click on it to start the music.

                      So in my dreams 😉 it would be great to put more than one widget into a card, so that I have 3, 4, 5 or even 10 Playlists in one card. But it do not has to be limited to Only widgets from one app. It would be awesome if you could combine widgets…

                      • Calendar widget is pretty important... why would that be excluded or Android version not work now?

                        I had a calendar widget on my regular Android version of the home screen, desktop, whatever this thing ... the launcher. it was simple and resizable & the way I had it I could see what I needed to see for my day. with the Microsoft launcher that no longer exist, which I don't understand since it's still an Android phone with Android apps and so at the very least the Android version should be here

                            • Show how much time I have spent on my phone to keep track of my eye health on feed. Like when I spend 5 hrs non stop etc.It would be helpful

                              This would greatly help me because I am both conscious of my eye health. And most of the time, I play mobile games.

                                • Relax your grip on the control geeeze!

                                  People should be able to add a screen to their "desk tops" and have the option to put NOTHING on it if they want! Maybe a place JUST To put a clock. a home screen that if they pull out their device on the home screen is minimal PERSONAL business! That is what I LOVE about my other launcher! You can put literally whatever you WANT wherever you WANT! If I want NOTHING not even a clock, just my wallpaper to be my home page I COULD!

                                    • Widget editor

                                      Simple, layers. Image, click, shortcut but so customizable you can make a painting for all your widgets, or simply put some free base edit tools to customize font, shade etc. It's just easy to get lost in a simple edit but that simplicity with our curiosity brings serenity to personalization. Thank you for letting me splurge a bit. I really love the clean interface to this app. It's in its own way beautiful

                                        • Completely flush edge padding like th Flick Launcher allows? Looks great on Samsung's Infinity screen.

                                          With Samsung's Infinity screen and even more so with the rounded corner at the top, having certain widgets fill that entirely with padding flush to the edge along with hiding the notification bar looks very sleek and clean. I would send some example pictures that I took but it seems like there's no option to upload such things currently.
