  3. 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.

  5. Folder grid + overflow

    Would be nice to have customizability of folder grids. Having number of columns/rows change depending on how many items hurts my brain, as icons are in different positions.

    I was thinking maybe have ability to custom set either row number or column number and which direction icons will overflow. For ex, I could set number of columns to 5, then have icons overflow vertically.

    Or have set number of rows to 4 & have icons overflow horizontally.

  7. Closing opened folders is very annoying. I just keep opening other apps and folders instead of just leaving the current one.

    When a folder is expanded, if the user presses outside of the folder area, the user expects that the current folder will be closed and only that. Instead, it opens whatever app/folder is placed at the point pressed.

  9. folder closing

    Prevent opening anything when folder is open and want to close it by clicking outside current folder. Sometimes when you want to try close opened folder, you will click to some other folder or app.

  12. Folder appearance non fullscreen using transparency setting

    Actually when opening an app folder without the full screen option, the background is plain grey even with transparency setting set on.
    this is the only thing keeping me on fullscreens mode even if that's not my preferred choice.

  17. folder

    When opening a folder from the home screen, I'd like to see the icons a lot bigger. Maybe opening a folder on the whole screen?

  18. Allow more customisation for folder icons arrangement, like stack, line etc. etc

    This idea will make folders more likeable, you can also add the option to change the background of folder icons, scroll through the folder icons horizontally or vertically, something like nova launcher, don't get me wrong, your launcher is pretty good other wise why would I make it my default launcher :)
