  1. Please, please give launcher the full Windows active tiles UI. It's the MS mobile signature loved by millions !

    The complete widows phone UI was awesome - don't loose it please. It's bad enough I have to retire my Lumia 930 for a Samsung S9+ ! ( Have to say the Samsung is a slick performer however). Come on guys make Launcher the complete Windows phone makeover.

  3. Allow landscape mode for launcher

    Sometimes I will want to use my phone with an external keyboard for writing tasks or in the car as a "dashboard".
    While apps do run in landscape mode it's frustrating to switch to portrait when the phone is sideways, especially when driving. Picture, opening another app will always take me to portrait mode in which I have to browse the phone sideways as well.

  4. Tiles

    Loved live tiles on windows phone. This launcher is great but live tiles like Windows phone would be super awesome. Waiting for that to come up.

  5. Timeline

    Will this Launcher ever support and share timeline with the new Edge on Chromium? And if so, does it mean it will also share it with Chrome? Because for now timeline is useless since we are using Chromium Edge...

  9. easier access to home screen

    home screen is getting merged with app page. not even able to take screenshot. If I want to close all opened pages, and just want the home screen left behind, that is also not happening.

  11. Add option to display dock on the Feed page

    It would be useful to have an option to display the dock on the Feed page. That way that page could be more useful if used as the default home page

  12. Improve launcher animations

    The Microsoft Launcher has great functionality but it is lacking good and smooth animations. In fact, there's no animation when returning to the home screen from an app. Previous versions of the launcher had better animations but at some point they got lost.

  16. Template Page

    Allow a page to be set as a template. When a new page is added, the user can select from a template perviously saved. To create a template, the user would long press the page they want to save to a template and select "Save as Template." Template would be especially useful for setting up multiple pages with identical widget layouts.

  17. Could you please bring back Windows Mobile???? Android just total nonesense, with launcher or not.

    It will work beautifully for ~5-10% initially, others will slowly follow given the platform is consistently supported and there are no abrupt changes and dev and user dumps.

  19. Choose what to show in Glance

    I would like to choose the information on glance. Now it shows the weather and but it would be nice to have some options to choose from, like showing incoming text messages like a live tile or having an expendable dock attached to it like on the home screen with widgets.
