  1. Keep recent option in menu page optionally.

    It takes more space of 1st menu icon page. To provide more menu icon just like 2nd menu page. In my device 1st page show only 8 menu icon instead of 2nd page 16 menu icon due to recent option. Please provide option for it in setting menu.

  5. please add an option to change the swipe down frequent apps placeholder for apps shortcuts instead.

    I prefer to keep my homescreen as clean and minimalistic as possible as a result i keep the top row of dock empty of apps except for apps drawer shortcut. if i could swipe down and access my selected apps it would make simplistic approach even better.

  7. Push updates in Recents.

    The Recents screen only updates messages received if they were first received on the phone. Facebook chats had elsewhere do not show, for example. It would be more useful if what I saw in the Recents screen matched what was shown in the corresponding app.

  8. longer recent feed

    The recents page is great, I use it as my home page. The only issue is that the feed should be longer. Maybe give us the option to choose how far back to go. 1 day, 3 days, or a week. That's it right now. I love all the updates you are doing keep them coming.

  12. I'm suggesting that remove the recent area in the menu list. It's pretty annoying. Just show the list of apps instead of that recent apps.

    None of it are working good for me. What I need just move it away from the menu list. Also the search. I can't get any disabling settings on the launcher setting too. Maybe some of users pretty need it, let just say they can enable & disable it for a good.

  14. instead of have "tap avatar to call back" you should change it so it opens the messaging app to text back

    On the recent page itstead of when you clock the contact and the phone defaults to call someone there should be a way that it opens up the messaging app so we can text if we want.
