  3. Notification

    What happens is that when I receive a message, either SMS or whatsapp, or someone liked one of my pictures on FB, there is no alert notification on the app icon itself, so I have to open the app to see if someone send or like something

  4. 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.

  5. Please make users can change individual Icon manually

  7. 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. Add Ability to Place Shortcuts on Arrow

    Some apps offer "shortcuts" to specific functionalities. e.g. Google Maps has shortcuts for turn by turn navigation to a specific address, or Touchdown has shortcuts for inbox, calendar and create email.

    It would be really useful to be able to add these shortcuts to the Widgets or Apps pages.

  12. 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!

  13. Allow Users to Select Apps on App Page

    Please provide the ability for users to manually pick which apps appear on the Apps page of Arrow

  18. App info

    When you long press an app on the page with all the apps it would be nice if you could drag it to an "app info" button instead of just "uninstall" or "add to page". Kind of life in the Now launcher.
