  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.

            • Microsoft Launcher should have its own distinctive icon pack.

              Microsoft icons, with Microsoft's own aesthetic, for a Microsoft launcher!

              • New "medium"-sized icons are too big!

                Previous update's icon is just right for me, new one is too big.

                • missing the possibility to change the character of the text in all the uncher would be the maximum.

                  I think this launcher is the best, from 10 stars, but there are 2 or 3 defects. 1: missing the possibility to change the character of the text in all the uncher would be the maximum. 2: the passage from one page to another of the vertical scrolling of both the home and widgets is not as smooth as the horizontal one is slow and jerks. 3: sometimes the Launcher freezes, forcing the device to restart. as a final note, I would like the implementation of cortana in Italian is something I have been waiting for. in any case, good…

                        • Multi select app icons to relocate them. Drag to highlight a block of icons. Drag to new location.

                          Long press on launcher background to start selection. Drag to highlight icons and then move them as a group.

                          • It would be extremely convenient if you could swipe through all pages in a carousel mode and not get stuck on either end having to go back.

                            Swiping through the Launcher pages gets you stuck at either end. If swiping to the right on the last page would take you to the first page that would be pretty cool.

                                    • Home screen in landscape

                                      When the phone is tilted to landscape (LS) mode, the homescreen remains in portrait mode, while most apps work fine in LS mode

                                      Launcher settings also stayed locked in portrait mode.

                                      Can this be changed?

                                        • delete home screen confirm

                                          it is too easy to accidentally deleted a home screen. please add some sort of confirmation or gesture that must be performed instead of the x being the end. an undo action would be great if there was no backup
