  4. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  10. configuration setting for position to open folders for easy reach

    allow global and/or per folder configuration of the position that folders open so that you can easily reach the contents of the folder on larger phones - i.e., open folders to bottom left, bottom right, etc.

    the current folder display at the horizontal and vertical center of the screen can be hard to reach on larger phones.

    thanks

  11. Icons could have bigger padding on folders. When somebody has bigger screen and has few icons in a folder they are too high and accessible.

    When you open a folder icons could have been closer to the control buttons like not so high they are hardly accessible

  12. folders sync

    I want all apps categorized all the time. When I install new apps, they should appear outside of a category in the app drawer (as they currently do).

    When I edit a folder in the app drawer, the app should disappear from the app drawer (which it does), but if I have copied that folder to the home screen, the new app doesn't show up there as well.

    Folders seem disconnected in this way. I want them to stay in sync; any changes to one should propagate to the other(s)

  13. 应用抽屉

    桌面程序分类可以选择不用文件夹,而是书架式的,每行一个分类,这行前5个APP是直接可以点击操作的,点击第6个图标展开本分类,可以选择其它APP操作。这样可以大大提高常用APP操作的效率。如果只是文件夹模式,所有该分类下的APP都得点击开文件夹后再操作,多一步。

  14. Folder contents at the bottom of the screen

    When you open a folder from the home screen the contents of the folder should be at the bottom of the screen so you can reach it. With phones getting bigger it is hard to reach content at the center or top of your screen

  15. Folders

    When a folder opens on my home screen the contents need to be at the bottom of the screen so I can reach them. Phones are big, so the contents in the middle of the screen are harder to reach.

  16. Quando si crea una cartella con più di 6 elementi con comparsa a finestra quando si clicca sull'icona, non si sa se ci sono altre app.

    Sarebbe utile l'introduzione di uno slider a lato per indicare che la cartella continua verso il basso o che la cartella si allarghi in base al numero di files.

  19. add different animations for opening folders.

    when opening the folder on the home screen it takes the whole screen, i would like it to take as less space as it can so it can be used with a single finger. Different animations can be added and the stock one will also be there

  20. more editing options for app folders to make them show more than 3 columns for folders with multiple apps in them

    user taps folder icon or settings, selects number x number desired and sorts apps as they see fit. rather than the current x by 3 column layout launcher app currently uses. would be nice to have up to 12x12 inside any folder like you can on the homescreen with apps when not put in folders. i currently have mine set at 5x5 but all my folders are either 3-7rows by 3 columns cause no option to adjust it.
