  2. Smart Folders Or App Categorization

    Smart folders, allowing users to categorize their apps. Additionally folders could size themselves accordingly to number of apps in the folder, or be arranged manually by the user.

  4. Dedicated Social Media Page

    I think it would be a separate page with up/down scrolling where you can link accounts (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Vine, etc) and it can be sorted by app, most recent, etc.

  11. Replace Wunderlist app integration with Microsoft To Do app

    Now we have Wunderlist integrated, but you have plans to shut down that app. Microsoft already have new app, To Do, so it would be way more usefull to integrate that new app in the launcher. I switched from Wunder to To Do but still not using widgets on the left side screen. To Do came out few monts ago, now we all know that Wundet is going away, so convince us to use your new app integrate it in launcher. Also it would be nice to se OneNote integrated on launcher instead Notes widgets. Save the look of widget…

  16. Add Windows Style Live Tiles

    I believe they should include some Live Tiles widgets like a widget for the time, weather, mail, messages etc; You get the deal. This would make the launcher look more like Windows.

  17. Infinite Vertical Scroll On Pages

    I don't believe ANY other launcher has this feature...

    I'd love an infinite looping VERTICAL scroll on the pages. On the widgets page we could then add as many widgets as we like, on just the one page, but with only a few showing (and active) at any one time.

  18. Add a Grid View Option to the App Drawer

    This feature would add the option of viewing the 'all apps' page in a grid view, rather than an alphabetical list.
