  2. Choose Default Home Screen

    The apps page appears to be the default. Could you add the ability to choose which page is the home screen? I'd like my widgets page to be the default. Thanks!

  4. Include a "Hide these apps in recent apps always" which gives the user more privacy.

    Well, I don't know much about the mechanism. But if you are keeping a recent app section in the homescreen that currently ain't working properly, but if it works it hampers privacy. When you unlock your phone in front of a friend you just showed him/her. So there should be an option to hide certain apps more like an whitelist.

  9. Combine "recent" and "frequent" categories on the "app" page into one, smart-suggest page

    Combine "recent" and "frequent" categories on the "app" page - these are somewhat redundant. Create a single, intuitive group of apps, automatically curated based on frequency of use, recent use, time of day, location, etc

  13. More flexibility in screens

    It'd be awesome to be able to have more options and flexibility when it comes to change the way the first and last screens are. For example, being able to change the third screen to a calendar style widget, music player, Cortana, etc.

  18. Hide Recent Apps

    An option to turn off recent apps would be handy, as I use a lot of apps and it would leave room for 2 more rows of frequent apps.

  19. bring back the recent apps row. frequently used is not good enough. a backwards step indeed

    as it did previously - you install an app and it appears in the top row

  20. The home screen wallpaper should extend beneath the on screen navigation buttons instead of black background.

    The on screen navigation buttons have a black background instead of extended wallpaper behind the on screen navigation buttons.
