  2. Recent apps should show as carousel not as cards

    Like it used to.
    When I touch the recent apps button, it shows me cards of all my recently used open apps. If I swipe one to close it, that changes the order of all the others, jumping them from top to bottom and vice versa, which is disconcerting.
    If you used a traditional carousel, removing one leaves all the others in the same order that they were before.
    (Even if you used across then down rather than across, down, up and across, down as the sort order, that would be slightly better.)

  3. Swipe through recent apps by swiping diagonally on the corners

    Navigate through your recent apps by swiping diagonally down on the corners of your phone. Swiping diagonally down on the left side will take you back, while swiping on the right side will take your forwards. The diagonal concept will avoid collision with the notification bar, and an option to enable this in settings will satisfy the people who may not like this concept.

  4. Using Microsoft launcher on a custom rom based on Android pie. Please make pie recents work well like lawnchair does with quickswitch

    With lawnchair launcher you can install a module called quickswitch in magisk and recent apps work well just like pixel launcher. one swipe on pill brings recents and another brings app drawer.

  7. Want an email specific page

    I Love the ability to have productivity pages I can flip to in the launcher to help me in my day. Eg I use To Do and Calendar daily, and they both have good functionality. For email though, I have to use a version of the Recents, with only the email category selected. This has limited functionality and the UX is not intuitive. Eg limit of only 20 or so emails, UI will hide or open email depending on where you click, no ability to flag, etc. What I want is a tab that allows me to quickly scan my…

  9. Merge timeline with recent activities

    They do similar job. I hated the tabbed feed, and the bottom tabs doesn't do it either. I don't use timeline and news because of that. Merge timeline, and let us use it as cards (personally, I would use them as pinned pages).

  10. Please show ALL messages in recent activity and let us see if it's been read by us earlier or not.

    Like you can have bold font for unread messages and normal font for the read ones. Like how the blackberry hub does it.

  16. Have Pixel Launcher Style Overview

    Right now the overview screen is just the cards, it would be great to have a root option or let us have a Pixel Launcher Style overview screen including suggested apps and a search bar.

  17. Have "recent activities" tile show sent messages also.

    currently you might see the recent activity tile and think you forgot to respond because it only shows what you received. have sent messages show what you wrote with a little annotation to who so that is understandable and clear.
