  1. Ask apps developers to make Microsoft Launcher-style widgets, maybe giving them the necessary tools.

    Give apps developers the tools to make widgets with the same design as the default launcher ones to create a more stylish and clean home.

        • Show deadline on to-do list widget

          Deadline only shows when alarm is activated. Would be good if date can be shown without alarm.

          • customization options for search widget.

            when we select transparent theme, the search widget provided by you also becomes transparent. rather than that can we give white color to search widget dispite having transparent theme. .

              • Diable swipe on feed to ch

                Disable swipe on feed to change to time-line and news, give us the ability to make this switch only when we tap the title and leave the swipe to the left gesture to go back on home.

                • I would like the ability to remove the top portion of the at a glance addin or the ability to move it to the bottom.

                  just allow the ability to entirely remove the account card at the very top so it doesn't take up space.

                  • reminder alarm for notes widget

                    i am frequently using notes widget in launcher , then i realise that it would be more useful if it reminds me with alarm on my task or notes

                    it would be great to have notes widget with alarm reminder feature..

                      • Scale widget fonts with icons. I made my icons smaller, but I'm left looking at elephantine text in the widgets I use.

                        Please add an option to scale down the text size in widgets. I have a Gmail folder displayed on my home screen, but the font is so big that I can only see 2 emails at a time, and most of the heading text gets cut off. It's a great launcher except for this one thing.

                        • Order of options on notification

                          Reminder notifications on PC have Snooze / Complete while on the toast alert on the phone it is Complete / Snooze. Would be nice to have the same order for dispatching the alert.

                          • Tasks should have option to hide completed

                            The To-Do tasks widget in 5.1 should have some mechanism to hide completed tasks, at least as simple as the ToDo app. Others have requested more elaborate approaches.

                                  integrating ToDo to tasks is great, but it should support the smart lists feature also.
