  1. app folder rounded square when opened in small window

    now that the app folder had different forms like "rounded square", why not bring that to the small window when open the app folder itself.

  2. Allow dragging apps to folders we make instead of trying to find the app in checkboxes.

    When making a new folder of apps, you choose the apps that you want into the folder. However, if you want to add more apps, you cannot just drag and drop the apps to the already made folders. Instead you have to go through all your apps in another page and select the apps with checkboxes. It is really annoying doing that when you have a lot of apps and also dragging and dropping has been the conventional and easy way of putting apps in folders.

  3. folder merge

    You currently cannot merge the content of two folders into a single one. Very annoying

  6. 希望文件夹可以显示九宫格的图标,而不是4个,不适应4个图标的文件夹

    文件夹只等看到4个图标,一般一个文件夹放个5~6个软件,有时候不注意不好直观看到,而且9宫格看习惯了,看4个的不喜欢,麻烦工程师了

  7. Hidden apps.

    Seria mais fácil e interessante se pudéssemos criar pastas com apps ocultos, assim na tela inicial teríamos acesso clicando na "pasta de apps ocultos" e digitando a senha para o acesso

  9. folder icon size

    Hello! Ever since the adaptive icons have been implemented (and they are so much better than at first!) my folder icon size is way bigger than the rest of the icons on the screen and it looks weird. for example: I will make all of the icons circular through the adaptive icons page, and I will choose a circle shaped folder in the folders page, but the circle shaped folder is always a different size than the icons around it on the home screen no matter how I adjust the size of regular app icons.

  10. Folder Background

    With the 5.6 update the Folder Background is now dark by default. in prior versions I could choose a dark or light background for folders (where a user has several icons in one folder).

    please add back the light option folder background!

  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.

  16. Folders for app drawer with personalized Icon and Menu

    There are a few apps that allow customized folders, but the good one are all abandoned or otherwise. I'd like to see folders in the dock, if not already added. I'd like to change the icon, and if possibly change how the menu is displayed. Thanks!

  20. 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)
