  1. Animate return to home

    Animation when swiping between home screens is good, but return to first home screen when pressing the home button is immediate and unanimated. Doesn't feel slick or finished like the rest of the experience.

  7. Please allow users to choose icon grid size like 4x4, 4,5, 5x5, 5x6, 6x6 etc...

    Add the option either in the settings page next to icon size, or as an option under page settings... Either a drop down of grid sizes or separate row and column size sliders.

  11. alphabetize folders in all apps

    When creating new folders in all apps they are added to the end of tje folders list. It would be useful either they are alphabetized or they can manually be ordered.
