  1. Change Folder background color per folder like Samsung launcher so they stand out.

    Samsung's launcher allows you to change the folder's background to different colors. If you have multiple folders on your home screen, you can quickly pick out the one that you want by the color.

  3. When choosing apps to add to a folder, please add a search bar to the top of that screen, and a jump list by letter on the right side.

    I have hundreds of apps, so I appreciate the ability to add apps to folders. When I am in a folder and select to choose apps to add to that folder, in the resulting window of apps, I would like there to be a search bar at the top to quickly jump to particular apps that I am looking for. Furthermore an alphabetical list by letter down the right side of the page would be great as well.

  4. Folder appearance

    Folder Appearance: add "stacked icons" setting, whereby you do not see a grid of tiny app icons inside the folder, but a stack of icons, the topmost being the first app in the folder. (See Nova Launcher for how this is done).

  5. I would like to move all or selected icons from one folder to another

    I would like to move all or selected icons from one folder to another. I wanted to merge 2 folders on my home screen and I felt like I had to start selecting one by one from scratch with the current setup. I hope a new feature makes this task easier..

  6. Import folders from other launchers, such as Nova Launcher.

    Just make a simple import button that lets you organize your apps in drawer folders the exact way they were in other launchers.

  7. Folder app text should be more visible or changeable.

    Currently on home screen, app and folder names are white text and visible while in-folder text is black on a dark background and difficult to see. background image is unchanged.

    Perhaps make both of these consistent, auto-change together brianvchristensen@gmail.comor allow a setting in folder settings to change app/folder text color.

  8. change number of columns and rows that show in app folders on home screen/show all apps. -this is non full screen mode

    I like the setting for the folders not showing in full screen, however I forget about scrolling and it doesn't go back to the top when I exit out of the folder. Then I forget that I have the app in that folder and search for it instead or go to the app drawer. so I think adding the ability to either show all apps in the "windowed" folder view or adding rows and columns would be helpful to avoid having to scroll. also maybe adding subfolders might be helpful for apps that aren't used all that much to keep…

  9. auto arrange apps

    I have 40-50 apps installed, going through full list sometimes make it poor and it also looks good when everything is arranged and well organised.
    arranging apps to a perfect folder automatically can help a lot.

  10. Please allow us to search for apps when adding them to a folder. Please also add a jump list to the right side of the screen.

    When inside of a folder, I love the ability to choose apps to add to that folder. However, my list of apps is very long, so at the top of the list of my apps, please add a search bar to filter through my apps quickly. I would also like to see an alphabetical jump list on the right side of the screen so that I can quickly jump to the first letter of the alphabet for the app I'm looking to add to the folder.

  11. App folder, number of columns

    I would like to see the option for me to change the number of columns. It's annoying how more apps I get into the folder the wider it becomes, I rather scroll and set the folder to be narrower. Tried to change it but doesn't seem like that's a option.

  14. Would be great if you could customize app folder backgrounds because even with dark mode on it appears white.

    This would change the look of the home screen vastly as the folders are the only odd thing in the whole dark aesthetic.

  18. Advanced Folder in Dock

    make folder icon(cover) auto-changed app by certain condition (badge count, user's priority, etc)

    and when user clicks or drags advanced folder, expand folder or run app that represented now.

    not only in docks, but it may useful in docks especially.
