    Bringing Live tiles from Windows 10 to smartphones ( as it was once in Windows phones) will be awesome.
    Windows phones had the best GUI that has been never met by any GUI till now!
    ( but the cost of Windows phones were pretty much high). The live tile effect is the one which was very captivating(some times useful indeed). I wish Windows OS for smartphones is once again built with compatibility to run all the apps that run on android.(In case, if Windows OS for smartphones is built again, please consider providing it as freeware. A price of $5-10…

      • mungkin akan lebih bagus jika cortana bisa mengakses aplikasi seperti di desktop

        cortana dapat mengakses aplikasi yg kita miliki,juga merespon jika di panggil "hai cortana", jadi hanya perlu perintah suara untuk mengakses aplikasi

              • Samsung Theme Store

                Windows 10 has its own fonts, transitions, etc. How about Samsung/Android theme that take this further than just the awesome Microsoft launcher? Have those fonts, icons, and transitions reach across the whole device, not just the launcher. Apply them to the AOD screen, lock screen, icons, menus, etc. As you guys continue to endorse Samsung products and partner with them (aka S8/S8+ Microsoft edition), you could have a real legitimate special edition that spans the whole device. Keep the fanboys happy, and capitalize on the rest of the market.

                      • Please add virtual gestures or icons to power off/reboot phone, and to increase/decrease volume. See app "Smart Touch" as example. thanks

                        It would be capabilities added to "swipe actions" gestures. For example, swipe a folder to virtually power off/reboot a phone and/or control sound volume saves wear & tear on the hardware buttons. I currently use an app called "Smart Touch" for this purpose (works on non-rooted phones) but it would be great if the MS launcher incorporated this feature. Would pay $$ for such a feature.

                        • In-built cleaner or RAM booster would be amazing

                          Could improve performance of the device and launcher

                                    • Samsung Note 8. I think it's called "motion effect." Check box when you pick a wall paper. Miss that.

                                      3D type feature Samsung has on their launcher. Thought I would just mention it. VERY nice feature except hard to manipulate size with lock screen. I learn to crop to the home screen size then pinch size the lock screen. Love this launcher. Jina Drawers on left. Sam on right. Yours below. WOW! My home is completely blank except for the drawer tab and clock up top. Every app double or even tripled then your jestures on top of that. Quadrupled. HOPEFULLY Microsoft, Jina and Samsung all work on that 512g unlocked Note 9 I'm waiting on. Almost forgot. Notes.…
