  1. 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.

  5. 5 x 4 icon layout

    it's available in other launchers to set more icons on the screen. would like to see in 'Icon Layout' an option for 5 icons across by 4 down, and possibly other combinations eg 5x5, 3x4 etc.

  6. Normalize apps size

    If you could please normalize the apps size it would be so great. Because some developers don't follow the guidelines.

  7. Add a way to apply our owns customs .png (or other image file format) on icons and not only with Icons Packs from the Play Store.

    We need a way to apply our owns customs .png (or other image file format) from our image gallery on icons like Nova Launcher (for example) and not only with Icons Packs from the Play Store.

    Thanks for your consideration and long live Arrow Launcher !

  9. Swipe left for all apps list

    Similar to Windows Mobile, swipe left to bring up the list of applications (instead of using the all apps icon).

  10. swipe up

    I'd simply like the swipe up to open app drawer gesture, just like the pixel launcher or every other recent launcher. the app drawer button is old and not comfortable. the swipe up on the dock can live together with this gesture!

  12. Allow full transparency on the app page

    Currently, the app page has an ugly square block around it, even on the transparent theme. There seems to be no good reason for this and an option to make it entirely transparent would be great.

  16. Make icons looks same size

    Each icon has its own size on the launcher and it does not look good. See messenger from Facebook and Twitter for example. The first looks too small, and Twitter is bigger.

  17. The dock should be removed on secondary screens, it's useless to have it under the widgets, and takes too much screen size.

    Allow the users to choose if the dock is visible on all screens or only the main one, it's really better for widgets readability, why have the same dock on multiple screens ? I use Nova launcher for years now and that's my default setup, no real dock, but different icons on the bottom of the screen, that way I have no 'dock' on some screens, allowing full screen sized widgets, on main screen I have a classical dock with phone and message apps, on another screen I have a mix of music widgets and a 'music apps' dock...
    really…

  18. docks

    the docks is swipeable to left and right to add more space for us to place other apps that we'd like to access but aren't displayed in the 'Apps Page', also so we won't have to swipe up the docks and tap 'All Apps' button
