  7. 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.

  10. Allow Users to Add More Pages to Arrow

    I would like to be able to add more pages. We can already hide the existing pages, but the ability to actually add more pages to the launcher would be very useful.

  11. Please Add A Calendar Page

    It would work similar to the Reminders page - only with selected calendars.

    Ideally, it would also allow the choice of calendar app for viewing/editing.

  12. Update a Material Design, By Following Google's material design guidelines

    Being Materialistic, is what matters the most now. Android users just love "Material design" apps. I'm not saying that you should completely do a makeover. But, as much as possible, make it materialistic. By following the Material UI guidelines for Android Developers.

    This thing would make it more user friendly, attractive, an android user would feel worthy to install this launcher. And the material concept has the hidden benefits in itself :)

  16. 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!

  20. Move Frequently Used Apps to The Bottom of the Screen

    Moving the frequently used apps would make them more accessible when using the phone one handed, especially on larger screens.

    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!
