  4. Add Ability to Set a Blank / New Page

    Some users have requested the ability to keep at least one page completely blank. This would enable users to have an unobstructed view of their wallpaper and a completely clean page if they want it.

  9. Allow Users to Add More Pages to Arrow

  14. Add Ability to Place Shortcuts on Arrow

    Some apps offer "shortcuts" to specific functionalities. e.g. Google Maps has shortcuts for turn by turn navigation to a specific address, or Touchdown has shortcuts for inbox, calendar and create email.

    It would be really useful to be able to add these shortcuts to the Widgets or Apps pages.

  15. Add a transition animation while opening APP drawer

    Add some transition animation while user opens the app drawer, for example Google now bottom up app drawer popup. Some kind of unique transmission animations will really add to the feel of the launcher.

    We’ve done a lot of work recently on performance. The animation for opening the app dock and swiping between pages should be displaying smoothly now.

    If it’s not, please let us know!

    You asked, we delivered! In v1.3.2, you can reach your most used apps at the bottom of the screen. Simply go to Settings and turn on “Display apps in reverse order”. Enjoy!

    Better life for the battery.
