    • Home screen transitions

      The scrolling between widgets pages and home page is so buggy. Make it smoother. Add a transition or something

      • Animate return to home

        Animation when swiping between home screens is good, but return to first home screen when pressing the home button is immediate and unanimated. Doesn't feel slick or finished like the rest of the experience.

        • reorder screens

          I have multiple screens of widgets. I would like to be able to reorder the whole pages no each individual widget.

          • Connect Microsoft launcher to your phone application

            The idea is that instead of the application my phone would be integrated with Microsoft launcher to save space on the phone and redundant apps:)

                • Please let the distance between the alphabet index in Application Page get smaller as before!

                  The space between each two alphabet index is too bigger. Old version is Nice!

                        • MIUI dual app doesn't work, cannot choose first app on first tap. Allow dual app button mapping to launch app in one go.

                          I see it allows me to choose either of the dual WeChat apps to map to, but not others. please fix for consistency

                            • give option to remove app drawer. not everyone likes the app drawer.

                              Allow users to choose whether they want an app drawer. turning app drawer off simply puts app icons on home screens

                                    • All apps menu should act like windows 8 style menus.

                                      The "All apps" page should work on this Microsoft Launcher exactly how it worked on Windows Phone. The apps should be one per line (easier to read) and in alphabetical order (with the starting letter as a heading that i can tap on and jump/scroll to another letter of the alphabet without knowing how far down I need to indefinitely scroll). The current all apps scrolling page is sub par in comparison wrt finding any app that is not starting with the letter A or a number. Scrolling for some unknown amount of time is not a quick user experience.…
