  2. App folder size

    Would be nice to be able to change the size of app folders independently of icon sizes. I use smallish icons but find the app folders too small with the settings I have.

  4. When I pull the group to home screen all icons inside the group are re-sequenced differently. It shud remain same.

    I have sequenced the icons inside a group in a particular way. When I pull that group to home screen the icon sequence inside the group should not change.

  5. Widgets Inside Folders

    I want to put widgets inside folders. Some widgets offer multiple one-click shortcuts which would be nice to access inside a folder.

  6. Action Launcher-style folders

    I want to use Microsoft Launcher but the way Action Launcher manages folders is just too good.

    The first app inside a folder can (optionally) be launched by single tapping on the folder. The folder is expanded by a swipe gesture.

    This use case is really great for primary and secondary apps. Let's say I mainly use Google Maps and sometimes multiple taxi and car sharing apps. They are all inside the "transport" folder, Maps being the forefront and accessible via a single tap. All the transportation apps are logically together, and the other apps are available inside the folder…

  7. app folders on home screen should stay linked to folders in drawer

    Currently, when app folders in the apps drawer are added to the home screen, subsequent changes to the folder in the drawer do not update the folder on the home screen. It would be nice if they did.

  8. More icons visible in folders

    Show more icons when folder opens both in full screen and non full screen. They're currently lots of empty space top and bottom which is wasted. I have to scroll to see more apps in my folder which is annoying.
    At least make it a customisable option.
    Thanks

  9. Icon badges

    Badge or indicator when made a folder and on top of it put an app icon. Now I have to remember where are all the "hidden" folders.

  10. If possible have some customation to the app folders. The current design (not full screen) felt duller compared to the full screen version.

    Basically introducing a few design options for those who don't want their app folders to open full screen but still loves the full screen's translucent design.

  11. folder labels

    App labels in folders should be a separate setting than app labels for home screen. If labels are hidden from home screen, they should still appear within folders.

  12. Adding apps to folders, add scroll bar with Alphabetical breaks (e.g. hyperlink to that letter)

    When you're adding apps to an existing folder, you just get this long list of every app.

    There's no scroll bar to quickly drag to an app that's a long way down the list.

    Example :
    If you want to add an app that starts with the T, you have to repeatedly click scroll through the list until you finally get there. And you might overshoot it and then you have to go back and find it.

    It should have a scroll slider on one side that you can quickly drag and when you press and drag it highlights letters…

  16. Can't see if folder has more icons to show. Add visual cue to window mode.

    In the new mode for folders, you can't see if there's more app icons below those shown. Add a tiny scrollbar, a gradient to the background or any other kind of visual cue so that we can see that in a clear way.

  19. automatically group apps by category such as entertainment, finance, shopping, network, games, files, etc.

    Microsoft launcher will use category codes assigned by Google Play to create folders that automatically group app by these category codes.

  20. Folder opacity

    Allow slider to adjust opacity level of folder background icon on home screen. Once you open the folder the background is solid but an unopened folder on the home screen has a transparent background
