  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.

    • 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.

      • Could You create a Metro UI style option?

        With the simplicity of WP8.1. (live) tiles on the main screen and swipe to left for the appmenu. Perhaps with the transparancy tiles front WP10.

                • Wraparound scrolling disabled when Feed turned on

                  I would like to use the Feed, but infinite side to side scrolling of my pages is more important. Because that is only supported when the Feed page is off, I don't get o use the Feed.

                      • Icon popup theme

                        Icon popup menu can be themed more like android rather than Microsoft. No offense, it still looks good but doesn't gel with my phone completely. I have shared samples from Nova Launcher for comparison.

                          • gestion des raccourcis.

                            Lorsque je crée un raccourci avec firefox pour avoir une page web sur l'écran d'accueil, le raccourci va se placer dans le launcher d'origine, et pas sur l'écran d'accueil microsoft launcher.
                            Problème identique avec les raccourcis vers des dossiers du téléphone (donc créés avec une autre application).

                                Some apps turn up in my suggested apps that I don't want there. I want to long press that app icon and be able to choose “don't show in suggested apps“. I want to use this function and not have to rely on hiding apps from the system altogether.

                                • A different notification bar and something like the live tiles.

                                  the live tiles are loved by everyone, and it's like a Microsoft signature. But the launcher should look like both windows and android. Create something new, like the card we have but for apps too, not only widgets. And it should be optional. It's 100% sure that everyone will love it!

                                  • password protected pages

                                    I would like to password protect some of the launcher pages in order to, when slided to it, display their contents only after entering that page password. Or keep sliding to other pages.
                                    Everything in such password protected page shall also be invisible in other locations until a valid password is given.

                                      • Please, make an option to use Glance view with always expanded top bar. It's easier to have all your info at a glance.

                                        Current behaviour of top bar at glance screen is complivated. It expands and hides as you scroll the screen(at list with my DPI). Please, make an option for always expanded top bar to have access to weater an calendar counter at any time and get rid of excessive scrolling.
