  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. Sync homescreen folders with app drawer folders, so that adding an app in one will edit the other, too.

    Sync homescreen folders with app drawer folders, so that you only have to edit one of them.

  4. folders should open lower on the screen so you can reach them easier

    the home screen folders should open close to where the folder icon was clicked so you can reach them. folders on the bottom of the page up high up in the middle of my phone, out of reach.

  5. 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).

  6. 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.

  9. Homescreen Folder background color should also follow system them (dark/white/transparent)

    Currently the folders on homescreen when tapped on open up but have a white background instead of following the system wide them option. Please change this

  10. Close folder to app drawer instead of quitting to main screen

    When closing folder, instead of showing the app drawer before clunkily switching out to the main screen, add an option to stay in the app drawer after exiting a folder

  11. I would like to be able to rearrange the location of apps in a folder

    I accidentally arranged the apps in my folders in alphabetical order. I would now like to be able to simply drag an app icon to a location of my choice. I would generally want the most frequently used on the top row for example.

  12. Would like to change the color of app folders and the font color.

    When you group apps in a folder I want to be able to choose the folder color. Also to be able to change font color. It depends on the background if you see the current folders and font.

  14. Better animation for closing a folder on the home screen

    When a folder is closed it should move from the open state to the closed state in a single motion and end up where the folder is. Currently, the opened folder with the closing animation and the closed folder icon are disconnected from each other. The open folder just fades away.

  20. Ordner in Seiten wandeln

    Beim Sortieren und Verteilen von Icons auf Startseiten ist es mühsam diese einzeln oder im Ordner über mehrere Seiten zu schieben um sie dann endgültig zu positionieren. Einfacher wäre es, nach dem Setzen auf die Startseite die Icons in einem Ordner zu sammeln und dann aus dem Ordner im Kontextmenü "als Seite einfügen". Die Icons können dann noch manuell auf der Seite angeordnet und die komplette Seite gegebenenfalls an eine andere Position geschoben werden.
