  3. Icon Pack Search

    I should be able to search a 3rd party icon pack and choose icons. That is what is normal and on all launchers out there. How can this be missed? Bit of a let down that this basic feature is missing.

  4. Dock

    In the original Microsoft Home App, dock supports widgets, however, it's not anymore now.
    Please add the support back, thanks.

    More views in Microsoft News, with pictures or whiteout pictures.

  8. Add a search option for changing custom icons

    Please. Add a search option for changing custom icons. To search for the icon in the packs. Because there are more than 4000 icons per pack, it's too long to search for an icon

  10. reset customized icon

    would be nice to be able to reset every icon to the default one cause if you change a single, no matter what icon pack you apply you need to change the individual icon one by one.

  11. Shaped icons for third-party icon packs

    I'd appreciate if Microsoft Launcher supported the ability to apply shaped icon backgrounds (square, round, teardrop, etc) to third-party icon packs. They currently only work for default icons.

  13. Graphics is terrible, real step backwards

    Revert to transparent backgrounds to folders, get rid of the bold text which looks stupid and jars against the normal text used elsewhere on the phone e.g. Normal app list.

  14. I am not happy with the way it has changed the format on my screen

    It has changed the way my screen looks. My app icons are smaller with less visible on each screen.

  16. The APP NAME of which the icon is being edited should be visible in the icon editing screen

    the APP NAME should be visible to the editor , while editing the icon.
    I usually tend to forget the app name i was editing , while manually changing the icons for each app.

  18. It would be nice if you added customizable app opening and closing animation like nova launcher

    It would be cool to change the app open and close animation to your choice for example "Slide Up" "Zoom" etc. Kinda like the Nova Launcher.

  19. Save current theme for future use.

    When you have the option to save current theme, it would save wich icons you use for each app/folder (especially the ones you changed manually) and your startscreen layout..and preferably all settings, too. This way you can switch it up and try something new without the hassle of having to change it all back manually. (e.g. in case the "new" disappoints,...)

  20. reshape icons for even third party icon pack

    currently icon reshape feature is only supported for system and microsoft launcher icon sets. if I add other icon packs that option is provided for them.
    Need to have icon reshape/adaptive icon feature for any icon pack that user selects
