  1. Please add an Auto-Rotate feature so the home screen can be horizontal or vertical depending on the way you hold your phone

    I believe it will use the phone sensor or camera to detect if the phone is vertical or horizontal then it will flip around to the way you are holding your phone ... my phone has it built in but it does not work with Microsoft Launcher

  2. Landscape Mode

    I would love to a landscape orientation for this launcher, I'm already loving it, but it would be even more awesome if it can have a landscape orientation, so if I have my phone sideways, and have to go to the home screen, I won't have to flip my phone back to the portrait orientation. It keeps the flow going and in some ways, I find it better to use my phone in landscape mode than portrait mode unless I have to pull my phone out quickly or to make a quick message or make a call, but still! Add…

  4. Better Animations

    The current homescreen animations are pretty basic and ugly. Please allow us to either use the manufactures default animations or fine tune the current animations.

  6. Utilize Quickstep API on recent Android Pie builds (rooted users and OEMs only)

    On recent versions of Android Pie, there is an API called Quickstep that essentially enables the integration of a search bar, your five most recently used apps, and the ability to pull up on those five icons to access your app drawer while in recents. Well, Google recently opened up this API to OEMs so they can ship their own launcher with this ability. Why not do this on devices that ship with this launcher (if there are any)? Also rooted users can access this feature. It would take a bit of work, and maybe a Magisk module, but Microsoft…

  7. Make the look same as the windows phone not as android one

    Home screen resembles the android one
    There isn't much difference between android and this launcher.
    So make it more different by changing the home page, changing setting, make launcher as default that means replace every android with the Windows one. That would be better

  8. Font size on widgets too large

    Change widgets font size. Simple. Fonts are huge by default for some reason. See native Samsung Calendar widgets as example.

  12. Fix shortcuts for SD card installed apps

    Please add the option to add shortcuts for apps installed on the SD Card. I can add them to my home screen but when I restart my phone or tablet they are gone. Probably the launcher doesn't wait to load the apps shortcut when it starts.
    This works fine on Nova Launcher.

  14. Add loop to screens

    Make it possible like in many other launchers to allow the screens to loop, such that you will come back to your home screen eventually by just sliding one way only.

  17. restart reset

    can you separate the"Restart Launcher" beside the "Reset Launcher" in settings, that may cause misoperation.
