  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.

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • remove x button from home screen

            Could you please remove the cross icon on the home screen for deleting icons? It is so anoying when you try to place an icon or folder at the top border and deleting a folder by accident because you where to close to the cross icon!
            Think deleting option by pressing an icon/folder is enough!
            And anyway drag & drop for placing icons/folders as close as you can to the border is also frustrating. Because screen switches when you are too close to the border.
            BAD USABILITY! ☹☹☹

            • jump to other home pages directly

              See standard launchers of LG and Samsung: One tabs on a specific dot below the current home screen to jump directly to another specific home screen; rather than forcing users to swipe left/right repeatedly until one reaches e.g. the last left or right screen.
              {There are also dots below the MS launcher home screen, but they are presently purely visual; without tab function.}
              (+add the infinity horizontal scroll, as already suggested by other users, which is also standard with the LG launcher and at least several other s/phone manufacturers).

              • 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.

                    • feeds page. Can you make Microsoft account signing smaller? Just one row with additional reminders or simple lock it on the left top corner.

                      now Microsoft account signing takes on the top of the screen unnecessary lots of space,- account info, pic, other details could be placed just into small single row or keep locked account pic on the topic left corner. Not comfy every time pulling down a page to get out all Microsoft details and then to do an extra scrolling to pass that huge card again. it's waste of time, much time. thanks

                        • add the google feed option on the home screen.. it'll be helpful in many occasions as all the android users have gmail accounts

                          a screen should be added for the google feed just like the news feed option available in this launcher.. just like the feed in Google now launcher

                          • Integrate the to do page with the Microsoft To-do app

                            Microsoft purchased Wunderlist, and created a to-do app called Microsoft To-do. when you create a new page, one of the options is to make that page into a to-do list, but it doesn't seem to integrate with anyting. This should integrate with Microsoft's core to-do app, rather than being yet another place to keep a list of tasks on your phone.

                                      • hide dock on card page

                                        when I add a new page, say with only recents card on it, then it would be better to hide the dock (or at least have an option for that)

                                        I'm suggesting this because the first card page (which has my name and photo) hides the dock
