    • HOME SCREEN LAYOUT LOCK

      please allow us to lock the home screen layout of apps, so that apps don't get distorted or layout doesn't get messed up by unintended swipes and touches.

        • provide a way to lock the positions of the icons and folders. I'm constantly rearranging my desktop and this is annoying.

          just the slightest touch on my screen will move the icons. seems like whenever I open my desktop the icons are not in the same place. most launchers have a way to lock the desktop so nothing gets moved. please put this feature in here.

                • Rotazione Schermata home

                  Rotazione schermata home

                  Dovrebbe esserci la possibilità di ruotare anche la schermata home.

                  Oltretutto, quando arriva una chiamata ed il telefono è in orizzontale perché si sta viaggiando in auto col navigatore, la schermata non dovrebbe oscurare il navigatore ma semplicemente sovrapporre un banner sopra la schermata navigatore.

                  • Can you make the screen turn off completely when double tap on home screen? It seems it just popping out black screen. It would be perfect

                    Because when the black screen popped out i still can interact with the screen which is really weird. There's another option to make the screen completely turn off but it make me can't open the lockscreen with my fingerprint/face unlock. Can you please realize it? Thank you

                      • lock screen

                        Similar to how the home screen has a unique design and features, I want the lock screen to do the same as I don't want to keep my original lock screen features/looks.

                        • Show app shortcuts even when the homescreen is locked.

                          When long pressing an app that supports App Shortcuts, show the App Shortcuts even if the homescreen is locked, and show the App Info button on the long press menu, while hiding the buttons that relate to editing the homescreen.

                                我需要真正的双击锁屏,而不是锁屏后无法使用指纹或者屏幕变黑假装锁屏了,用NOVA发现他们已经实现了。
